Same-Sex Marriage Ten Years On: Lessons from Canada

Same-Sex Marriage Ten Years On: Lessons from Canada | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it
The effects of same-sex civil marriage in Canada—restrictions on free speech rights, parental rights in education, and autonomy rights of religious institutions, along with a weakening of the marriage culture—provide lessons for the United States.

 

Would recognizing same-sex relationships as marriages be much of a game-changer? What impact, if any, would it have on the public conception of marriage or the state of a nation’s marriage culture?

There has been no shortage of speculation on these questions. But the limited American experience with same-sex marriage to date gives us few concrete answers. So it makes sense to consider the Canadian experience since the first Canadian court established same-sex marriage a decade ago. There are, of course, important cultural and institutional differences between the US and Canada and, as is the case in any polity, much depends upon the actions of local political and cultural actors. That is to say, it is not necessarily safe to assume that Canadian experiences will be replicated here. But they should be considered; the Canadian experience is the best available evidence of the short-term impact of same-sex marriage in a democratic society very much like America.

Anyone interested in assessing the impact of same-sex marriage on public life should investigate the outcomes in three spheres: first, human rights (including impacts on freedom of speech, parental rights in public education, and the autonomy of religious institutions); second, further developments in what sorts of relationships political society will be willing to recognize as a marriage (e.g., polygamy); and third, the social practice of marriage.

The Impact on Human Rights

The formal effect of the judicial decisions (and subsequent legislation) establishing same-sex civil marriage in Canada was simply that persons of the same-sex could now have the government recognize their relationships as marriages. But the legal and cultural effect was much broader. What transpired was the adoption of a new orthodoxy: that same-sex relationships are, in every way, the equivalent of traditional marriage, and that same-sex marriage must therefore be treated identically to traditional marriage in law and public life.

A corollary is that anyone who rejects the new orthodoxy must be acting on the basis of bigotry and animus toward gays and lesbians. Any statement of disagreement with same-sex civil marriage is thus considered a straightforward manifestation of hatred toward a minority sexual group. Any reasoned explanation (for example, those that were offered in legal arguments that same-sex marriage is incompatible with a conception of marriage that responds to the needs of the children of the marriage for stability, fidelity, and permanence—what is sometimes called the conjugal conception of marriage), is dismissed right away as mere pretext. 1

When one understands opposition to same-sex marriage as a manifestation of sheer bigotry and hatred, it becomes very hard to tolerate continued dissent. Thus it was in Canada that the terms of participation in public life changed very quickly. Civil marriage commissioners were the first to feel the hard edge of the new orthodoxy; several provinces refused to allow commissioners a right of conscience to refuse to preside over same-sex weddings, and demanded their resignations. 2 At the same time, religious organizations, such as the Knights of Columbus, were fined for refusing to rent their facilities for post-wedding celebrations. 3

The Right to Freedom of Expression

The new orthodoxy’s impact has not been limited to the relatively small number of persons at risk of being coerced into supporting or celebrating a same-sex marriage. The change has widely affected persons—including clergy—who wish to make public arguments about human sexuality.

Much speech that was permitted before same-sex marriage now carries risks. Many of those who have persisted in voicing their dissent have been subjected to investigations by human rights commissions and (in some cases) proceedings before human rights tribunals. Those who are poor, poorly educated, and without institutional affiliation have been particularly easy targets—anti-discrimination laws are not always applied evenly.  Some have been ordered to pay fines, make apologies, and undertake never to speak publicly on such matters again. 4 Targets have included individuals writing letters to the editors of local newspapers,5 and ministers of small congregations of Christians. 6 A Catholic bishop faced two complaints—both eventually withdrawn—prompted by comments he made in a pastoral letter about marriage. 7

Reviewing courts have begun to rein in the commissions and tribunals (particularly since some ill-advised proceedings against Mark Steyn and Maclean’s magazine in 2009), and restore a more capacious view of freedom of speech. And in response to the public outcry following the Steyn/Maclean’s affair, the Parliament of Canada recently revoked the Canadian Human Rights Commission’s statutory jurisdiction to pursue “hate speech.”

But the financial cost of fighting the human rights machine remains enormous—Maclean’s spent hundreds of thousands of dollars in legal fees, 8 none of which is recoverable from the commissions, tribunals, or complainants. And these cases can take up to a decade to resolve. An ordinary person with few resources who has drawn the attention of a human rights commission has no hope of appealing to the courts for relief; such a person can only accept the admonition of the commission, pay a (comparatively) small fine, and then observe the directive to remain forever silent. As long as these tools remain at the disposal of the commissions—for whom the new orthodoxy gives no theoretical basis to tolerate dissent—to engage in public discussion about same-sex marriage is to court ruin.

Similar pressure can be—and is—brought to bear on dissenters by professional governing bodies (such as bar associations, teachers’ colleges, and the like) that have statutory power to discipline members for conduct unbecoming of the profession. 9 Expressions of disagreement with the reasonableness of institutionalizing same-sex marriage are understood by these bodies to be acts of illegal discrimination, which are matters for professional censure.

Teachers are particularly at risk for disciplinary action, for even if they only make public statements criticizing same-sex marriage outside the classroom, they are still deemed to create a hostile environment for gay and lesbian students.10 Other workplaces and voluntary associations have adopted similar policies as a result of their having internalized this new orthodoxy that disagreement with same-sex marriage is illegal discrimination that must not be tolerated. 11

Parental Rights in Public Education

Institutionalizing same-sex marriage has subtly but pervasively changed parental rights in public education. The debate over how to cast same-sex marriage in the classroom is much like the debate over the place of sex education in schools, and of governmental pretensions to exercise primary authority over children. But sex education has always been a discrete matter, in the sense that by its nature it cannot permeate the entirety of the curriculum. Same-sex marriage is on a different footing.

Since one of the tenets of the new orthodoxy is that same-sex relationships deserve the same respect that we give marriage, its proponents have been remarkably successful in demanding that same-sex marriage be depicted positively in the classroom. Curriculum reforms in jurisdictions such as British Columbia now prevent parents from exercising their long-held veto power over contentious educational practices. 12

The new curricula are permeated by positive references to same-sex marriage, not just in one discipline but in all. Faced with this strategy of diffusion, the only parental defense is to remove one’s children from the public school system entirely. Courts have been unsympathetic to parental objections: if parents are clinging to outdated bigotries, then children must bear the burden of “cognitive dissonance”—they must absorb conflicting things from home and school while school tries to win out.

The reforms, of course, were not sold to the public as a matter of enforcing the new orthodoxy. Instead, the stated rationale was to prevent bullying; that is, to promote the acceptance of gay and lesbian youth and the children of same-sex households. 13

It is a laudable goal to encourage acceptance of persons. But whatever can be said for the objective, the means chosen to achieve it is a gross violation of the family. It is nothing less than the deliberate indoctrination of children (over the objections of their parents) into a conception of marriage that is fundamentally hostile to what the parents understand to be in their children’s best interests. It frustrates the ability of parents to lead their children to an understanding of marriage that will be conducive to their flourishing as adults. At a very early age, it teaches children that the underlying rationale of marriage is nothing other than the satisfaction of changeable adult desires for companionship.

Religious Institutions’ Right to Autonomy

At first glance, clergy and houses of worship appeared largely immune from coercion to condone or perform same-sex marriages. Indeed, this was the grand bargain of the same-sex marriage legislation—clergy would retain the right not to perform marriages that would violate their religious beliefs. Houses of worship could not be conscripted against the wishes of religious bodies. 14

Tom Hauck's comment, March 27, 2013 9:36 PM
I still say this whole argument is not about equality...because no matter what they get from us...they go after more... It's all about undermining our religious attachments because as long as our Judao/Christian bonds remain strong as with our country's foundation...then MArxism...Socialism...radical Islam...Sharia...these corruptions will not gain control of our society. But if we allow the Left to continue weakening and undermining our core religious beliefs...we will fall.... Every country in the world that has survived Communism or Marxism had to go through a period of destroying their religions...their faith in God had to be weakened and turned to a blind faith in government. That's how all tyrants achieved their goals and the Left is trying to achieve it here today....

A Call To Action to Restore America & What's Really Destroying America

A Call To Action to Restore America & What's Really Destroying America | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it

A Call To Action to Restore America

by P Garza aka @littlebytesnews

 

UPDATE:

Do you support unification of TeaParty orgs,etc to take legal action against the liberal propaganda media, as well as boycotting of their sponsors? If you want to restore America we must act together and unify our groups to stop the liberal propaganda machine from smearing Conservatives and covering for the socialist/communist Obama, liberal agenda!

 

Do you oppose the moral and cultural decay of our country and the decline of our education system?? Then we must act now and work together to take back the education system, whether by homeschooling, private schooling or getting more involved in the public education system at the local level.

 

If you are not aware by now, after the re-election of Obama, the direction our country is heading is very dire. I fear by the time Obama is done with his four more years, it will be too late and we will all be equally poor and oppressed. I believe we need to take action before that happens and before 2014 and 2016!

 

Sadly, like others I have my doubts those who re-elected this moron will not learn from their mistakes, but am hopeful if we fall completely they will wakeup, but fear that by then it will be too late. I think we need to organize against the media and take back the message. I also think we need to take back the message in schools where our children are being taught about social justice, anti-capitalism, and distorted versions of history rather than the facts. Those who do not know their history are doomed to repeat it.

 

My Solutions/Ideas To Change Direction

1) I don't know exactly how we can go after the media other than boycotting sponsors of the liberal propagandists and/or a class action lawsuit by we the people organized by the tea party movement?? They need to be sued for media malpractice and being complicit in keeping the truth from the public, not vetting Obama properly, protecting him from the scandals surrounding his admin from fast&furious to Benghazi, Solyndra/green energy loans,etc. If we are successful in a class action lawsuit, I am hopeful their broadcasting license are revoked and conservative media and new media can take over and get the truth to the American people and the world.

 

2)To change/reform education we need more conservatives teaching, acting in leadership roles in the system from school boards, to the administration. We have let the liberals take control for far too long and they now not only control the education system and curriculum but our Universities where many vulnerable young minds are being taught to accept the liberal ideology, social justice, anti-capitalism, etc. Many are also taught antisemitism and this is another reason so many young support Gaza/Hamas rather than our ally Israel. They are not getting the truth and they are not learning from history and about true history, but a revised version of history distorted by the liberal/progressive/Marxists running our schools/universities.

 

I believe the distortions of the liberal media, voter fraud, [http://obamavoterfraud.com] illegal voters through Obama's backdoor amnesty/DREAM Act& foreign donations, as well as lack of photo ID laws allowed Obama to win re-election. Not to mention the brainwashed/misinformed voters who have been taught otherwise in our schools/universities. I know everyone can't home-school so homeschooling as an alternative can not be the only option.

 

We must take back our education system and not only improve the system, but control the message.


All of these things need to change before Conservative principles and the intentions of our founders will be fulfilled again. We have slowly been moving away from those traditional values&morals thanks to the corrupt/biased media and education system. Until we take those back we may never be able to win this fight without total destruction, but by then it might be too late to ever recover. I hope we can somehow do something now and before 2014 to change the message and take back control of the media and education system. Otherwise, we will be doomed to tyranny, the status of a third world country,militarily&economically, and the American Dream will be no more.

 

If you have other ideas and a way to organize with the tea party movement to pursue a class action lawsuit against the corrupt media or change our school system or otherwise, please share and contact me. Hopefully we can all work together to start a citizens action group that can take back our country without violence or the need for another civil war or declaration of independence.

 

Thanks for posting this and helping to raise others awareness of what is destroying our country.

 

Read about what inspired this post and the dire direction our country is heading:

".....Corporations do not exist to provide work, benefits and pensions for employees. The private sector is about the creation of wealth, not the creation of jobs. One begets the other, but without the former the latter simply cannot exist."

littlebytesnews's insight:

Update: What America needs — if it is to survive in liberty — is a surge in citizen activism unlike anything our nation has ever before seen.

The success of such a grassroots movement will depend on how much individual citizens are willing to do their part to return our country to divinely-inspired principles of self-governance — those principles contained in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution, and those validated by common sense and biblical teachings.

If you feel you need to "wait for instructions," or otherwise depend on others — especially those in positions of leadership — to guide and assist you, our country will not survive these perilous times. You must act as though the future of our countrydepends on you alone, for in a very real sense it does. It depends on the creative, responsible, exemplary initiative of yourself and those you inspire to similar patriotism.

Here are suggestions for helping to make a difference in the future of our country.



Submit frequent letters to editors.

Testify at public hearings.

Hold regular gatherings in your home or community to discuss and promote the cause of liberty.

Volunteer to work in a political campaign, at any level, for any worthy purpose.

Widely distribute signs for a cause or a candidate.

Lead — or get involved in — a worthy petition drive.

Organize a rally, large or small, to publicize an urgent issue or cause.

Contact your local paper and offer to be interviewed regarding a public question or concern you have vital knowledge of.

Pick up the phone and share your views on talk radio — or if you have the skills and opportunity, create your own radio or internet talk show.

Create a blog.

Found a website.

Write and publish a regular column — or even a book.

Get actively involved in a major (or possibly a "third") political party in your state or the nation.

Run for local — or higher — public office.

Sign the Pledge for America's Revival — and invite others to do the same.

Participate in RenewAmerica’s Facebook page (and also America’s Revival’s Facebook page) — and support similar interactive forums on the web.

Help organize your state or local area in the cause of taking back our country.

Inform yourself. "Zeal without knowledge" (see Rom. 10:2-3) will not save our country. Become acquainted with reliable, principled websites, blogs, publications, books, speakers, organizations, and other praiseworthy sources for information regarding the needs of our country and the solutions to those needs. Sign up to receive helpful newsletters and alerts.

A good place to start informing yourself would be to study essential documentsthat describe our nation's founding principles.

Work on your "people skills." By this, we mean your ability to strengthen and influence others for good — so they might be persuaded to take independent action — not your ability to "use" others for your own ends, as some might think. Respect the worth, dignity, and free will of each individual as you seek to assist them in fulfilling their duty as citizens.

Work on your communicative skills. "Politics is communication," to a large extent. Become the kind of communicator God can use for His purposes. Meaningful communication requires practice, experience, wisdom, and the operation of God's Spirit in effectively informing real people in real situations. This applies equally to both spoken and written communication.

Turn your skills and resources mainly to saving our country — above any other purpose beyond your own salvation and the well-being of your family — and rely on God to give you the practical means to do so.

and take the pledge: http://www.americasrevival.com/pledge.php#pledge

 

Help spread this message and help me get at least 10,000 to take legal action against the corrupt liberal media!

2 LAPD Police Officers Ambushed, Shot at in 'Unprovoked Attack';one suspect sought

2 LAPD Police Officers Ambushed, Shot at in 'Unprovoked Attack';one suspect sought | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it
Los Angeles police called off an intense 8-hour manhunt Monday morning that began after two officers were ambushed in an “unprovoked attack” in the Vermont-Slauson neighborhood of South L.A. the previous night.


A massive manhunt was underway in South LA in the early morning hours of Dec. 29, 2014, after two officers were fired upon the previous night. (Credit: KTLA)
The officers from the LAPD’s 77th Division were responding to an unrelated radio call Sunday around 9:30 p.m. on Hoover Street near 66th Street (map) when two men allegedly opened fire on their patrol car, according to Los Angeles Police Department Detective Megan Aguilar.

Several rounds were shot in the direction of the officers, LAPD Capt. Lillian Carranza said.

“This was a completely unprovoked attack,” she added.

One of the officers returned fire toward the alleged gunmen, but it was not immediately clear whether either was hit.

Neither officer was injured.

Police detained one man and recovered a weapon at the scene, Aguilar said, declining to specify what type of firearm was found. She later clarified that he had not been arrested.

Police have not released the name of the person they had in custody. He was described only as a “person of interest,” according to Aguilar.

In the wake of the shooting, LAPD went on tactical alert and initiated a massive manhunt for the second shooter.

2 officers were responding to a call from their radio when 2 men opened fire on them. The police shot back but no one was hit. An 18 year old is in custody and said to be a suspect. A manhunt was conducted to find the second man but it was unsuccessful. 

This makes me so incredibly mad because all of these young, stupid people think they know exactly what's going on. There is racism between blacks and whites, and there is racism between everyone and police officers representing their own color, blue. RIP the officers who were shot in NY.

Cameron Neal's curator insight, March 11, 12:55 PM

This article is a reminder of how dangerous a career in Law Enforcement can be, in Law Enforcement anybody can try to kill or hurt you. You have to be aware of your surroundings 24/7 even when you are off duty. The mindset that police officers have is that serving their community is more important than their own personal safety.

Florida deputies shot at three times in ambush attempt

Florida deputies shot at three times in ambush attempt | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it

Highlights:

Sniper shoots at Florida deputies three times after ambushing them in their squad car ...after 'shoot cop' graffiti appears
The shooting took place at approximately 3:30am in a Dade City, Florida, church parking lot, the Pasco County Sheriff's Office said
The deputies were shot at while they were keeping an eye on traffic in two different patrol cars
Both deputies survived the shooting unharmed
The shooting comes after deputies asked the public for help in connection with a graffiti message that spelled 'Shoot MP Cop'

 

More:
Authorities have asked the public for help after two deputies in Dade City, Florida, were reportedly shot at three times on Sunday.

The shooting took place at approximately 3:30am in the Northside Baptist Church parking lot, the Pasco County Sheriff's Office said in a release.

The news comes one week after NYPD Officers Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu were shot and killed in broad daylight. Police officer Charlie Kondek was also shot and killed in Tarpon Springs, Florida, last Sunday.

The Dade City shooting also comes after the Pasco County Sheriff's Office asked for help from the public on Friday in connection with a graffiti message that spelled 'Shoot MP Cop.'


Shooting: The shooting took place at approximately 3:30am in the Northside Baptist Church parking lot, according to the Pasco County Sheriff's Office 

Each Pasco County deputy was keeping an eye on traffic in a nearby intersection, the sheriff's office said. They were in two different patrol cars at the time.

The deputies were shot at three times, according to the Pasco County Sheriff's Office. Both deputies survived the shooting unharmed.

The release said that 'Both deputies reported hearing the whizzing sound of each projectile as they flew by.

'Deputies did not see the suspect or the vehicle from which the shots were fired.

'Area residents also heard the three gunshots and reported seeing a small, dark-colored vehicle with tinted windows in the area at the time of the shooting.'

The Pasco County Sheriff's Office says $3,000 is being offered for tips. 

It also says that information can be submitted several ways: by dialing 1-800-873-TIPS, going to www.crimestoppersTB.com, and also by texting 274637 'CSTB and your tip.'

Cole says large groups of teens began showing up around 5 p.m., with the crowds swelling to as many as 1,000, according to mall security officers. 

Cole says he doesn't believe it was an organized event or protest and that it's unclear as to why the teens were congregating at the mall or fighting with one another. 

Monroeville Police Chief Doug Cole said, 'It appeared to be no set type of protest it was just that there were many juveniles.'

Police don't think it was organized?? Hmmm, seems organized to me when it happened around the same time across the country in different malls.

Texas cop, girlfriend beaten, robbed following crash: police

Texas cop, girlfriend beaten, robbed following crash: police | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it

An off-duty Texas cop and his girlfriend were ambushed, beaten and robbed after a Christmas night car crash, authorities said.

The 29-year-old Galena Park officer was driving home about 11 p.m. on Thursday from a holiday party when he smacked into a black Infiniti sedan crossing the roadway, according to media reports.

The officer claims he followed the car to a nearby apartment complex where a red Humvee pulled up to meet them, KHOU 11 reported.

Four Hispanic men hopped out of the SUV and allegedly clobbered the cop and his girlfriend, police said. The assailants snatched the officer’s wallet, cell phone and a pistol that slipped out of his waistband during the struggle, the station reported.

littlebytesnews's insight:

I wonder if it was a planned ambush?? Thankfully they weren't critically injured and the weapon was recovered. Hopefully they catch the men responsible for the assault. I wonder if they were illegal immigrants and likely escaped back into Mexico?

Several reports of violence in US malls tonight...were they planned?? | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it
UPDATE: Arden Fair mall is closing two hours early as the result of a disturbance at the mall.
“Seperate skirmishes” involving teens occurred in the mall on Friday evening, prompting the need for the shutdown, mall security spokesman Steve Reed said.
He says the move is precautionary and is meant to prevent an incident similar to the one two years ago.
A group of juveniles went through the mall knocking over signs on this day in 2012. Some shoppers misinterpreted the sounds of the signs hitting the floor as gunshots, and portions of the mall were put under lockdown.
Traffic controls are in place to help mall shoppers have an easier time getting out.
The mall would typically close at 10 p.m. on Friday.

2014 Person of the Year:The American Police Officer | FrontPage Magazine

2014 Person of the Year:The American Police Officer | FrontPage Magazine | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it
The police officer has come to embody America, abroad and at home, the nation that risks its lives to free peoples only to be despised for it, the nation that extends every benefit and privilege to its own criminals only to be shot and stabbed, raped and robbed for its endless generosity.

The American police officer was never supposed to be venturing into neighborhoods where no one speaks English and the locals see him as a member of an occupying army or patrolling in communities where gang members number in the thousands and could take down the entire local police force.

He was never supposed to be a social worker, a mediator, a medic and the commander of an invading army negotiating truces and treaties with the local tribes. And yet he is expected to be all these things and more. Every time he goes out he knows that he may face a choice between his life and his career.

If cops seem touchy, isolated or out of control it’s because they have been left hanging by a system that uses them to dam up the breakdown of a society without ever acknowledging that this is their job. Many urban police officers operate in environments where crime is not an aberration, but the norm. Like the American soldier, the police officer is better trained and more effective than ever before, but like the soldier he is also haunted by the sense that his work and his sacrifices are futile and unappreciated.

The police officer isn’t spending years in Iraq or Afghanistan; he’s spending decades in Chiraq. When his time ends, there will be no victory parades. Just the knowledge that he tried to make a difference and that unlike many brother officers, at least he made it to retirement.

Officer Daryl Pierson was shot and killed leaving behind a wife and two young children. Pierson had been an experienced officer. His killer, Thomas Johnson III, had been paroled after serving three years for an attempted armed robbery.

Officer Justin Winebrenner tried to get Kenan Ivery to leave a bar. Ivery drew a gun and shot and killed him. Officer Winebrenner was a second generation police officer. He left behind a 4-year-old daughter.

Officer Perry Renn responded to shots being fired and encountered Major Davis Jr. who was carrying a semi-automatic rifle. Davis Jr. had an extensive criminal record. He fired killing Officer Renn who had survived twenty-two years on the force.

Patrolman Jeffery Westerfield responded to a fight between Carl Le’Ellis Blount Jr. and his girlfriend. He never even got a chance to draw his gun or leave his squad car before Blount shot him in the head.

Deputy Sheriff Allen Bares was off duty when he saw a gold Lexus crash into a ditch. He approached the vehicle and was shot and killed. The two men inside, Quintylan Richard and Baylon Taylor, stole his truck and took off.

The police officers in all these cases were white. Their killers were black. But the police officers in many of these cases were trying to protect black people and black communities.

The killings all took place in a matter of months in 2014. And their numbers will only continue to grow.

While the wars abroad expand or contract, this is the war that will go on. Its soldiers will serve their tours of duty for decades on the streets of our own cities without having anywhere else to go home to. And when their time is up, they will never receive the thanks that they deserve because most of us will never understand the difference that they made.

When the left took over, it was the police officer who kept everything from going under in our major cities. It was not the politician or the planner, the sociologist or the social worker who kept the crime and chaos from sweeping everything away. It was the man in blue who did what had to be done.

Under Obama, when the criminal is king and the progressive planners are changing the country in ways unprecedented since the seventies, it’s still the lonely figure in the squad car that does his duty and holds the line in a thousand dark and dirty neighborhoods where gunshots and screams sound in the night. The American police officer has become the soldier of civilization fighting to keep it alive.

And somewhere a family wonders if their father or mother will come home tonight.

Amnesty Order's Price Tag: $48 Million a Year and Climbing

Amnesty Order's Price Tag: $48 Million a Year and Climbing | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it
The high cost of President Barack Obama's executive action in granting amnesty from deportation for as many as 5 million illegal aliens is beginning to be revealed — for openers, 1,000 new federal employees to process them, at $40 million in salaries per year, and a newly signed $7.8 million annual lease for office space in a new building in Crystal City, Virginia.

The Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) is hiring people for jobs ranging in salary up to $157,000 a year, Fox News Latino reported.

The Washington Times noted that hiring for the new positions was posted just 10 days after Nov. 20, when Obama announced his unilateral executive action, indicating that plans for the hiring were well in place before the announcement.

Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Alabama, reacted with anger, stating the new office building and hiring are "a clear symbol of the president’s defiance of the American people, their laws and their Constitution," The Washington Post reported.

Sessions added that Obama is "hiring federal employees to carry out a directive that violates the laws Congress has passed in order to foist on the nation laws Congress has repeatedly refused to pass," the Post said.

However, because up to 95 percent of USCIS funding comes from fees immigrants pay, the Post noted that Congress likely will not be able to override the expenditures by cutting off funding when a Republican majority takes over in January.

In an internal email to employees, the USCIS stated it was "taking steps to open a new operational center in Crystal City, a neighborhood in Arlington, Virginia, to accommodate about 1,000 full-time, permanent federal and contract employees in a variety of positions and grade levels.

"The initial workload will include cases filed as a result of the executive actions on immigration announced on Nov. 20, 2014," the Times reported.

Obama's an enemy of the US. He is not securing our borders, not enforcing our laws and has lost respect of the people, law enforcement and the military.

Mourners to gather at funeral to honor slain NYPD Officer Ramos

Mourners to gather at funeral to honor slain NYPD Officer Ramos | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it

Heartbroken family of slain NYPD officer Rafael Ramos arrive at his wake as thousands cops are expected to attend
On Friday, crowds gathered in Glendale, Queens for a wake for one of the two officers killed on Saturday, 40-year-old father-of-two Rafael Ramos
Ramos was working with fellow officer Wenjian Liu in Brooklyn last weekend when they were shot execution-style by a gunman
After the wake, a memorial service will be held for Ramos at 7pm 
Vice President Joe Biden and city and state officials are expected to attend Ramos' funeral on Saturday.


Rafael Ramos' heartbroken family have gathered at a church in Queens to remember the New York police officer nearly a week after he was shot dead while on duty.

The 40-year-old police officer's wife, Maritza, and two teenage sons entered Christ Tabernacle Church in Glendale on Friday afternoon as thousands of cops lined the streets.

Crowds also gathered as Ramos' casket - draped in an NYPD flag - was carried into the church by officers. Some officers stood in a line and saluted, while others embraced each other for support.

The wake started at 2pm and Police Commissioner Bill Bratton is expected to pay his respects at 4pm. On Saturday, Vice President Joe Biden and city and state officials will gather for his funeral.

'Today we weep with the Ramos family, the New York Police Department and the nation as we mourn the loss of our dear brother,' The Rev. Ralph Pastor Castillo outside the church. 'He was a gift to our church.' 

Ramos was shot dead execution-style alongside fellow police officer Wenjian Liu as they sat in their patrol car in Brooklyn on Saturday. The gunman then ran into the subway where he killed himself. 

Before the killings, shooter Ismaaiyl Brinsley, had posted online that he was going to put 'wings on pigs' to avenge the deaths of two black males - Michael Brown and Eric Garner - at the hands of white police officers.


Ramos had celebrated turning 40 a week before his death. He had been on the force for two years and was raising two boys, Justin and Jaden, with his wife Martiza, whom he married in 1993.

He was due to graduate from the police chaplaincy's program on Saturday afternoon - just hours after he was killed. 

littlebytesnews's insight:

Sad day in NYC as Officer Ramos is memorialized and laid to rest. In the meantime the self serving, cop hating communists, anarchists, atheists, and Islamists are still planning protests in defense of cop killing thugs and criminals.

7 ‘Barbaric’ Men Abducted and Drugged Teen Girl, Forcing Her Into Sex Acts

7 ‘Barbaric’ Men Abducted and Drugged Teen Girl, Forcing Her Into Sex Acts | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it
A group of Florida men have been arrested after abducting a teen girl, then feeding her drugs, and forcing her to commit disgusting acts.

According to NBCMiami, seven men were arrested and charged for abducting the 16-year-old girl on December 4, then feeding her a combination of drugs and forcing her into a week of sexual acts and prostitution, at times with more than one man at once, police said.

The State’s Attorney’s office and the Miami-Dade School Board Police said the girl was reported missing by her family after being last seen getting into a black Ford Taurus with three other people. It’s not known whether she knew the people in the car, but authorities said the grotesque sex acts began shortly after.



Local10 reports that the girl was given a combination of cocaine, marijuana, and alcohol, then forced to engage in sexual acts in various locations around Miami-Dade County with over 16 different men throughout the course of a week. Police said that on two occasions, she was forced into having sex with up to eight men at the same time.

Gee, will these 4 Marx Brothers lead protests on behalf of the dead cops? Will the Vacation In Chief have the families of the dead cops to the White Kremlin for a summit of support? Will the corrupt and racebaiting Holder give interviews about how he's caused this to happen with all of support for criminals and his endless attacks on police departments? I guarantee they won't!
Congratulations to Barack Hussein Obama, Al Sharpton, Eric Holder, Bill De Blasio, and most of all the media that put and keeps them in positions of power.

Based on a true story in Hungary. This is the lesson of the Jewish People. A nation that doesn’t learn from it’s past, has no future. But it should be something for all nations to learn from. What led this to happen and how can we prevent it from happening in the future?
We must learn about what happened and educate others. The more that is known, the more we ensure a better world for ourselves and our children.

Weekly Jihad Report December 13 To December 19....more peace from the religion of pieces | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it

via Steve Russo‎ 
Weekly Jihad Report December 13 To December 19


Festive Season's Greetings to my fellow Christians, Jews, Buddhist, Hindus, Sikhs, Infidels, Kuffars, Dhimmis, Apostasies, Pagans, Traitors, Atheists, Heathens and Free people everywhere and anyone else who doesn't buy into the whole farce that the so called, self proclaimed perfect man was actually a prophet by any means, especially considering the fact that this so called perfect man did a lot of stealing, robbing, raping and lying and said it was ok, because his version of God said it was ok to do so! And so they don't feel left out... A warm and cuddly, non-Christmas As-Salam Alaykum to the those who actually buy into the perfect man's nonsense!

Alrighty infidels, let's get the Holiday party started, With the Top Six Islamic Headlines / Pictures of the Week....

1. Islamic State: “Merry Christmas, you infidels!”....
Merry Christmas from The Religion of Peace, well sort of. This image is Season's Greeting comes to you courtesy of the people who perform actual beheadings (as if they couldn't get any creepier). Celebrating Christmas is viewed as heresy or even blasphemy in Islam, which is punishable by death under Sharia law by some Islamists. Muslims believe that Christianity contradicts the singularity of God by believing that Jesus was the Son of God, instead of limiting him to an admirable prophet.” http://10news.dk/islamic-state-merry-christmas-you-infidel…/ ;


2. France Hit by Third Islamic Terrorism Attack in Three Days...
Dozens of people were injured Monday, five seriously, when the Muslim driver of a van ploughed into a Christmas market in the western French city of Nantes before stabbing himself. The source said the driver then stabbed himself “at least nine times”, causing himself serious injuries. Some witnesses stated that they heard him shouting Islamic battle cry – “Allahu Akbar.“ http://www.i24news.tv/…/55306-141222-france-man-plows-into-…; ;


3. Denmark: Gang Of Somali Muslim Savages Brutalize Danish Couple With Bottles and Iron Chain....
The couple from Vesterbro in Copenhagen was on their way home from Christmas Eve. The couple was walking along around Enghaveplads (Copenhagen area known for roaming packs of Muslims) when a young guy came cycling. He was only 16-17 years, but seemed very confrontational.‘What do you want? Do you have a problem‘, he asked us several times and got off his bike, Nanna says. Nanna describes how the youth hits Mads (her boyfriend) in the head with a glass bottle. Suddenly more youths come up from a basement. They are armed with iron chains, the kind that is uses for locking scooters and motorcycles. They attack Mads. He defends himself, while punches and kicks rain down on him, and soon he falls to the ground. She was knocked to the ground also and had her face beaten with the iron chains. Thereafter, the youths ran away. … Nanna was hit directly in the face with chains and among other things she has lost a tooth and received a split lip. … Nanna describes the perpetrators as Somali Muslims. http://10news.dk/denmark-muslims-beat-random-couple-with-b…/ ;


4. Excellent!!! Kurdish Peshmerga Forces Backed by A-10 Killed 120 Islamic State (ISIS) jihadists In Just 6 Hours. Job well done! http://www.liveleak.com/view?i=69c_1419077185

5. Two New Videos Showing The Latest Nigerian Massacres by Boko Haram Islamo Nazis...
Boko Haram’s 2014 jihad Official Numbers: 9,000 killed, 1.5 million displaced!
A new video from Nigeria’s Boko Haram terrorists shows gunmen mowing down civilians lying face down in a dorm, and a leader saying they are being killed because they are ‘infidels’ or non-believers. There are so many corpses the gunmen have difficulty stepping to reach bodies still twitching with life. http://www.liveleak.com/view?i=115_1418995992

And here, Boko Haram is shown shooting people in the head and throwing them off a bridge...
http://www.liveleak.com/view?i=575_1419006422


6. An 11-year-old Israeli Girl Seriously Burned Over 50% of Her Body after Firebomb Attack on Car by Muslims..
A young Israeli girl (Ayala Shapira), and her father were wounded (she with 3rd degree burns, he with minor burns) Thursday after the car in which they were traveling in Judea-Samaria was hit by a firebomb from Muslim savages, only a month after her mother escaped a similar attack in the same area. http://www.frontpagemag.com/…/11-year-old-israeli-girl-bur…/ ;

Well now, no surprises there! Just another typical week in the world of Islam. Funny how there isn't stories like these coming from Christians, Jews, Buddhist, Hindus or Sikhs, but at any given hour on any single day, there's tons of these coming from the followers of Muhammad! Yet, the left continues to tell everyone that "We" ...must Coexist with these savages or "We're" ...Intolerant! Confused? Join the club!

Alright then, let's move on to the Kill Report for this past week, as Non Believers try pointlessly to exist or survive with the Believers and their stuck in their backwards convert em' or kill em' all mentality!


Weekly Jihad Kill Report For The Week Of December 13 To December 19


Jihad Attacks:54

Allahu Akbars (Suicide Attacks):6

Dead Bodies:857

UnHoly Hadith and Suffering Sira!!! Coming in with a bullet.. and a sword....and a bomb... Muhammad's children win yet again! Because, No one eliminates non-believers from the face of the infidel planet like the followers of the "Religion of Peace!" Sorry for pointing out the obvious. Well.... not really, it's just common sense for which I apologize not!

Alright, alright! That's enough Islamic nonsense for one week! It's Christmas for Pete's sake, how much does one need of Islamic torture? And believe me, when it comes to torture, no one does it better than Islam! So, time to say goodbye for this week infidels, but I can assure you, that cometh next week, there shall be a lot more craziness, killings, beheadings and all kinds of mischief from Allah's children! So, until we meet again, keep your infidel heads attached to your bodies non believers and .... Wa alaikum assalam to those of you followers of the Moon God, creeping around and lurking behind bushes, trees and rocks, We've got lots of eyes on you!

littlebytesnews's insight:

Thanks to Steve Russo for putting this report together each week. He always does a great job rounding up some of the greatest atrocities done in the name of Islam. Such a disgusting death cult, may they all be eradicated from this world someday soon.

As Americans are given pink slips....Pentagon to resume recruiting immigrants

As Americans are given pink slips....Pentagon to resume recruiting immigrants | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it
After a months-long hiatus, a special immigration program designed to attract recruits with certain skills will be up and running once more in the next several weeks.
Attorney Margaret Stock, an immigration lawyer and retired Army lieutenant colonel, said on Monday that the Military Accessions Vital to the National Interest, or MAVNI, program could resume before the end of the year, but certainly in January.
There has not yet been an announcement from the Defense Department.
"I heard about it from some folks at the Pentagon. There's no public USAREC [U.S. Army Recruiting Command] message yet," Stock said.
The program stalled in late September after President Obama's executive order on immigration opened up MAVNI to undocumented immigrants who came to the U.S. as children. According to Stock, the Defense Department is now on track to resume processing applications under MAVNI.
"DoD has set the overall fiscal year quota for MAVNI at 1,500, and the Army has been allocated 1,300 slots for now," Stock wrote on the blog for Alaska-based law firm, Cascadia Cross Border Law Group. She does not know if the other services will utilize the program, noting that in 2013 the Air Force recruited only two people under MAVNI, both enlisted and brought in for their language skills.
The Navy recruited one doctor under the program in 2009, when it began.

NK response to US screening "The Interview''-compares Obama to a monkey

U.S. President Obama is the chief culprit who forced the Sony Pictures Entertainment to "indiscriminately distribute" the movie and took the lead in appeasing and blackmailing cinema houses and theatres in the U.S. mainland to distribute the movie.
Obama always goes reckless in words and deeds like a monkey in a tropical forest. When the Sony Pictures Entertainment made public a statement that it would give up the distribution of the movie, frightened by the merciless retaliatory strike, Obama urged it to unconditionally screen the movie, claiming that the disgrace suffered by Sony Pictures Entertainment means sorrow of the U.S., why did it issue such a statement as holding a white flag without informing the president of it?, it is the violation of the freedom of expression and a threat to the security of the U.S. and it is necessary to make symmetric counteraction, considering the hacking attack was made by "north Korea", though it is not clear who was behind it, the statement said, and went on:
Dancing to the tune of Obama's outbursts, Kerry, McCain, Bolton and other wicked conservative politicians zealously prodded the Sony Pictures Entertainment into distributing the movie, blustering who else but "north Korea" caused property losses worth hundreds of millions of dollars to it.
If the U.S. is to persistently insist that the hacking attack was made by the DPRK, the U.S. should produce evidence without fail, though belatedly.
If the U.S. cannot open to public evidence due to "protection of sensitive information source" as expressed by the FBI, the U.S. may conduct a joint investigation with the DPRK in camera.
However, the U.S. is behaving recklessly, trumpeting about "symmetric counteraction", "combination of invisible sanctions and visible sanctions" and "re-designation of sponsor of terrorism" while linking the hacking attack with the DPRK without clear evidence and sure ground.
In actuality, the U.S., a big country, started disturbing the internet operation of major media of the DPRK, not knowing shame like children playing a tag.
We had already warned the U.S. not act like beating air after being hit hard by others.
Of course, we do not expect the gangsters to pay heed to our warnings.
When the public is becoming increasingly vocal about the hacking attack on the DPRK media this time, the U.S. feigned ignorance, saying that they should ask "north Korea" and the U.S. neither admits nor denies.
The prevailing situation clearly shows that the U.S. is adding to its crimes by screening the movie "The Interview."
With no rhetoric can the U.S. justify the screening and distribution of the movie.
This is because "The Interview" is an illegal, dishonest and reactionary movie quite contrary to the UN Charter, which regards respect for sovereignty, non-interference in internal affairs and protection of human rights as a legal keynote, and international laws.
It is also because it is a new politically-motivated provocation made by the U.S., pursuant to its hostile policy toward the DPRK as it is a movie for agitating terrorism produced with high-ranking politicians of the U.S. administration involved.
This is the reason why the world is branding "The Interview" as a typical product of the U.S. anachronistic act of challenging not only the dignity of the supreme leadership of the DPRK but also human justice and conscience and encroaching upon peace and security.
The anti-U.S. sacred war at present precisely means protecting justice and peace.
If the U.S. persists in American-style arrogant, high-handed and gangster-like arbitrary practices despite the repeated warnings of the DPRK, the U.S. should bear in mind that its failed political affairs will face inescapable deadly blows

littlebytesnews's insight:

LOL they are delusional but the line I thought was funny, which many will probably consider racist, is the one where they compare Obama to a reckless monkey in a tropical forest. But this isn't new for NK, as I believe they have compared Obama to a monkey previously.

Intimidated Cops Let a Butcher Knife Wielding Bad Guy Chase Them Around

Intimidated Cops Let a Butcher Knife Wielding Bad Guy Chase Them Around | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it
After bringing a knife to a gun fight, Alfonso Martinez of Milwaukee, Wisconsin is alive today only because the cops, afraid for their own lives, were more afraid that shooting him would cause civil unrest.

It all started December 1st when neighbors asked Milwaukee, Wisconsin police to check to see if their neighbors were OK. According to the Journal Sentinel, things went from zero-to-crazy the moment officers met the butcher knife-wielding man, who began chasing and threatening to kill them:

Martinez began chasing the officers around parked vehicles as they yelled at him to drop the knife, and one of the officers even indicated that she was “beginning to wear out from the running,” before Martinez finally dropped the knife and was arrested.
The responding officers say politics made them pause. As the Journal Sentinel reported:

Both officers indicated that they were thinking about the recent incidents locally and nationally at the time of this incident.
littlebytesnews's insight:

Not good, political correctness and intimidation will get cops killed and endanger innocent civilians. Next time it could be an unarmed victim being threatened with a knife or gun wielding suspect and the cops will be too afraid to respond?

Officer Kyle Strunk's Letter to the Editor in response to anti-cop rallies

Officer Kyle Strunk's Letter to the Editor in response to anti-cop rallies | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it
In recent weeks, police officers have been nationally ridiculed. We have been called racists, pigs and murderers. Recently there have been national protests calling for "dead cops."

Wow ... it's time for a cop to respond.

For nearly 10 years, I have seen cops be heroes, mentors and lifesavers. I have seen them put the lives of citizens before their own every single day. I have seen them sacrifice time with their families to work overtime to help ensure the safety of citizens. I have seen them cry tears for complete strangers.

And we all have seen cops protecting the very protesters who call them pigs and killers and call for dead cops. Think about that for a second. Again, wow.

I'm sorry that some people can't see police officers as human beings who willingly risk it all for strangers every single day. People like that are few and far between.

I have never been more proud to call myself a police officer because I know what we are really all about. When people ask why anyone would want to become a cop, my answer is when you wear this uniform, you get a front row seat to see what amazing people most cops are and it's then that you realize they truly are the finest.

Thoughts and prayers go out to the NYPD. I honor you, brothers and sisters.

Cincinnati Police Officer Kyle Strunk

Cop Group Flies "de Blasio, Our Backs Have Turned to You" Ad

Cop Group Flies "de Blasio, Our Backs Have Turned to You" Ad | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it
A group of retired and current NYPD officers say they flew a banner along the Hudson River Friday that said "de Blasio, our backs have turned to you" in protest of the mayor's policies toward the department.
The small banner, which traveled up and down the Hudson River Friday morning, was paid for by officers upset over what they called "the mayor’s incendiary rhetoric, and for facilitating the current hostile climate towards the NYPD."
littlebytesnews's insight:

He has lost all respect and trust of law enforcement. If DeBlasio had any decency he'd step down, but like Obama who has lost all respect by our military at 15% approval, he won't step down. Democrats put them before country and others.

FL Police Officer of Six Children Brutally Murdered in – Ex-Con Arrested (Video)

FL Police Officer of Six Children Brutally Murdered in – Ex-Con Arrested (Video) | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it
The Tampa Tribune reported, via American Survival Guide:

A Tarpon Springs police officer with a wife and six children was shot and killed early Sunday while responding to a nuisance noise call, police said.

Officer Charles “Charlie” Kondek, 45, was shot around 2 a.m. near Glen’s Eureka Apartments by Marco Antonio Parilla Jr., 23, who was released from prison in March, said Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri.

Parilla, who was wanted for a probation violation, had been knocking on doors in the apartment complex at 199 Grand Blvd., looking for a person who he believed got him into recent trouble with law enforcement, Gualtieri said.

A woman who Parilla arrived with in a Hyundai Elantra stayed in the car with the stereo turned up. When a resident asked her to turn down the volume, she refused and the resident called police.

When Kondek arrived, he approached the Hyundai. When Parilla saw Kondek he started firing at him with a 40-caliber handgun, Gualtieri said.

Kondek was able to return two shots, investigators said. As Parilla drove away from the scene, he backed over Kondek, investigators said.

Gualtieri said Kondek, a former New York City police officer, was killed by a gunshot that struck his neck area, just above his protective vest. Tarpon Springs police and fire rescue tried to resuscitate Kondek but he died later at Florida Hospital North Pinellas.
littlebytesnews's insight:

So sad, what's worse is people will likely celebrate his death like they are celebrating the murders of two police officers in NYC. 

http://dailycaller.com/2014/12/20/monsters-people-take-to-twitter-to-celebrate-nypd-murders/

 

He had a history of arrests and was in violation of his probation and claims he shot the cop because he felt like a 'caged rat'. Well now he will be a caged rat hopefully for the rest of his life for what he did to this officer and his family.

NYPD cops were warned of threats by the BGF days before

NYPD cops were warned of threats by the BGF days before | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it
"The two officers were pronounced dead at Woodhull Hospital, where their colleagues and family members huddled tearfully.
City Council President Melissa Mark-Viverito and Mayor Bill de Blasio were less than welcome guests at the poignant gathering.
“We’re all in this together,” the mayor told grieving cops, according to a cop who was there.

“No we're not,” one officer said tersely in response." -Taken from today's New York Post

I cannot appropriately express either the grief for the families, the rage I have towards the killer, or the deep disappointment I harbor  for the New York City Mayor and the self-absorbed frauds he surrounds himself with, with words powerful enough to soothe my emotions. The attached picture was sent to me by a former NYPD colleague of mine a little while ago. It is a warning sent out weeks ago to the officers of the NYPD about a credible threat to their lives.

As a child who grew up just miles down the same Myrtle Avenue Street where these two NYPD brothers in law enforcement were brutally assassinated on, just five days before Christmas, I understand the concerns of the citizens who live there. The death of any human being, whether at the hands of another citizen, or at the hands of law enforcement, is the death of a unique and invaluable collection of experiences we call a life. But, instead of a rational, dignified conversation about the very serious issues surrounding policing in modern America, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio chose to be a hustler. He chose to be a grotesque caricature of a leader, instead of a genuine leader and, in the process, he ratcheted up emotions by making specious correlations, he had no evidence to support, about the motives of the members of his own police department.

I spent most of my adult life in law enforcement. I spent most of my childhood on those New York City streets. Did I run into bad cops? Of course. Were bad cops the rule? Ridiculous. The cops I worked with had kids to feed, mortgages to pay, garbage cans to take out at night, homework to check, and a job where the possibility of never returning home was a black cloud that followed them overhead wherever they went. Just imagine for a moment walking into your office on Monday morning and finding the message below taped to your cubicle.

I ask you to join me tonight in asking The Lord to help the families of these heroic officers cope with the horror of their loss just five days before Christmas. I also ask you to join me in asking The Lord for men and women of character, on the many sides of this complicated and ongoing debate, to be given the strength and the platform to begin to heal this great nation from the damage imposed upon it by the hustlers among us who have profited handsomely from trafficking in division and hatred.

God bless America, and all those who defend her.
littlebytesnews's insight:

Again, sadly this is the result of the continuous media support of the Ferguson and Eric Garner protesters, along with Sharpton, Holder, Obama and DeBlasio who continued to fan the flames. They took the side of the thugs who were resisting arrest, assaulted cops or otherwise, instead of standing by our law enforcement. 

 

We need true leadership in the White House and our cities before this civil unrest and violence continues. May these officers RIP and their families find peace and comfort during this difficult time and this time of year.
