USA: ‘ RISE & RISE OF SHARIA LAW IN AMERICAS SCHOOLS ‘

#AceNewsServices – USA: Featured Post:Jan.12: A school district in Colorado is coming under the wrath of the community for telling school girls that they may have to submit to sharia-compliant rules regarding covering their heads and ankles on a field trip to a Muslim mosque.

Screen-Shot-2015-01-06-at-10.30.01-AM

According to WND, Douglas County School District confirmed that such Islamic law will be enforced on the trip.

Rocky Heights Middle School (RHMS) Principal Mike Loitz appeared on January 6, 2015 on KNUS 710 radio and was interviewed about the trip.

Peter Boyles of KNUS reported on the rules the school system issued to students in order to notify parents, which were as follows:

The world religions field trip is next Tuesday, January 13. We will be visiting the Denver Mosque, the Assumption Greek Orthodox Cathedral, and the Rodef-Shalom Synagogue. We will then eat lunch at Park Meadows Food Court. Students must either bring a sack lunch or money to purchase lunch at the food court.

THERE IS A DRESS CODE FOR THIS TRIP: All students must wear appropriate long pants. Ankles must be covered. Girls must bring wide scarves or hooded sweatshirts for the mosque.

According to Boyles, “Public schools are forbidden from holding girls to different standards than boys,” Boyles notes. “They’re holding these girls to a different standard – it’s a religious reason.”

“Islam dictates many, I believe – personal belief – repressive practices against women and Islamophobia will trump women’s rights,” Boyles said. “Animal rights every time, and the environment. That’s their belief – that’s wonderful. But don’t apply it to public school kids.”

He also went on to talk about the difference of visiting a place of worship on one’s own initiative and comply with the rules versus a school requiring students to comply.

After a firestorm had erupted over forcing girls to submit to sharia, the school thought it best to provide a statement of clarification.

“For the past ten years, RHMS seventh-grade students take a social studies course that is partially focused on world religion,” the statement reads. “In the Douglas County School District (DCSD), we provide authentic learning experiences to all students. We teach students how to think, not what to think.”

So, if the school district is trying to teach students how to think and not what to think, why is there an imposing of sharia on these girls?

“The social studies course includes a voluntary field trip to a Greek Orthodox Church, a Jewish Temple, and a Mosque. As with any field trip, our students and families are offered the choice to participate in the field trip – it is not mandatory,” the statement continued. “If the decision is made to not participate in a field trip, alternative educational opportunities are provided. This is true for any DCSD field trip, including the RHMS world religion field trip. Students who choose to attend the RHMS world religion field trip are expected to respect the dress code of the host facility, but again, they may choose not to participate. Information shared with RHMS parents stated: “All students must wear appropriate long pants. Ankles must be covered. Girls must bring wide scarves or hooded sweatshirts for the mosque.”

Additionally, the school said that the course is not part of Common Core and stated that Common Core “does not include social studies.”

It is true that the trip is voluntary and not mandatory. However, Islam has been making advances into America’s public schools and the ideology of Islam is poisoning the minds of our young people. Why is it that Americans must make way for Islam, but it will not make way for America?

Here’s just a couple of stories over the past year where Islam is making inroads in the public schools of America:

Additionally, designated terrorist group Hamas-CAIR forced observance of Islamic Holidays in Maryland schools in 2013. Students in Kansas were met with the five pillars of Islam on their first day of class in 2013. In the same year, Hamas-CAIRblasted the handing out of permission slips for Bible study classes, which took place off campus while at the same time putting pressure on Dearborn Public Schools toimplement a policy which fully accommodates student-led Islamic prayer in all the schools, as well as unexcused absences for students who leave early on Fridays for Jumu’ah prayers.

Pamela Geller wrote concerning this issue, “The subjugation and oppression of women are enshrined under the sharia. Young school girls should not be forced to “respect” a dress code that represents honor violence, female genital mutilation, forced marriage, child marriage, et al…. The islamization of our public schools is well-documented in my book Stop the Islamization of America: A Practical Guide to the Resistance.”

On Sunday, Pamela Geller highlighted the fact that Selena Gomez and her friends visited a mosque in Abu Dhabi and enjoyed themselves, laughing and even taking pictures. They all had on Islamic garb and in one of the pictures, she is seen lifting her burka and showing a bare foot and ankle. For this she was labeled as “disrespectful” because she violated the rules that forbid, “displays of interpersonal affection…exposing skin and openly laughing.”

As I often encourage parents, take your children out of the public indoctrination centers where they won’t even be exposed to this nonsense. Teach them the law of God in your own home and equip them to be those that honor the Lord. You can even begin your homeschool journey at no cost if you have children K-5. If you want to stop the islamization of America’s children, start in your own home.

CAPITOL HILL: ‘ MARK UDALL’S PUBLIC CAREER COULD BE OVER BEFORE THE RACE BEGINS ‘

#AceNewsServices – WASHINGTON – October 20 – Critics of the government’s spy agencies are worried that Colorado’s hotly contested Senate race could end the public career of one of their best allies in Congress.

Sen. Mark Udall’s (D-Colo.) possible defeat would leave a void in the Senate and on the powerful Intelligence Committee, civil liberties and anti-secrecy advocates fear.

“I do think it would be a significant loss for the movement,” said Laura Murphy, the head of the American Civil Liberties Union’s Washington office.

“What Udall has is the institutional memory, and the relationships in the civil liberties community, in the Democratic Party and in the tech industry so that we don’t have to start over again with someone new,” she added, while noting that her concern would be the same if Republican civil liberties advocates were also at risk of losing their seats.

Udall has long been one of the Senate’s biggest fighters against government secrecy, tough spying programs, the Guantanamo Bay detention facility and other issues important to civil libertarians. 

He was the first lawmaker to call for CIA Director John Brennan to resign this summer, following his agency’s confirmation that some officials gained unauthorized access to Senate staffers’ files.

He also criticized the Senate bill to reform the National Security Agency (NSA) for not going far enough to stop “back-door” searches of Americans and opposed a contentious cybersecurity bill on the grounds that it would shuttle people’s personal data to the NSA.    

“Were Sen. Udall to lose, I think he would be sorely missed,” echoed Scott Roehm, a senior counsel at the Constitution Project. “He was one of the earliest voices for meaningful surveillance reform even before the Snowden leaks.”

` Six Car Oil-Train Derailment Cause Unknown Though One of 100 Cars is Known to have Leaked ‘

 

#AceWorldNews – COLORADO – May 09 – Emergency crews have been working to clear a six-car oil train derailment that leaked some crude into a ditch Friday in northern Colorado, AP reported.

A vacuum truck was brought in to suck up the spill, with tanker trucks nearby to transfer the oil.

State and local emergency officials determined that one car of the 100-car train was leaking after the 8 a.m. derailment near LaSalle, about 45 miles north of Denver.

The cause of the derailment was under investigation, said Micki Trost, a spokeswoman for the Colorado Division of Emergency Management. Crews had contained the spill to a ditch away from any waterways, Trost said.

The amount of oil spilled wasn’t immediately known, but a vacuum truck was brought in to suck up the spill. Tanker trucks lined up nearby to transfer the oil.

According to The Greeley Tribune (http://tinyurl.com/m96ows9 ), the train was loaded in nearby Windsor with Niobrara crude and was bound for New York. Niobrara oil comes from the Niobrara shale formation in Colorado, Wyoming and Kansas. It’s not considered as volatile as Bakken crude from North Dakota and eastern Montana.

` GM the cost of peoples lives less than a ` Dollar a Day’ to change `Ignition Switches ‘ in their Vehicles thus Saving 13 People’s Lives ‘

#AceWorldNews – UNITED STATES – April 02 – General Motors Co in 2005 decided not to change an ignition switch eventually linked to the deaths of at least 13 people because it would have added about a dollar to the cost of each car, according to an internal GM document provided to U.S. congressional investigators. (Reuters)

The U.S. House Committee on Energy and Commerce released the documents on Tuesday as lawmakers asked CEO Mary Barra why GM failed to recall 2.6 million cars until more than a decade after it first noticed a switch problem that could cut off engines and disable air-bags, power steering and power brakes.

Colorado Congresswoman Diana DeGette cited a 2005 GM document that she said showed a cost of 57 cents per fix.

DeGette did not release the document, and Reuters was unable to get a copy. However, Reuters obtained what appeared to be a separate document, a series of 2005 emails between GM engineers debating whether to make a change to the ignition switch.

The change would have cost an extra 90 cents per unit and additional tooling costs of $400,000, one email showed. Those tooling costs typically are amortized over several years.

Barra said she found the concept of turning down the change because of tooling costs “very disturbing. That is not the way we do business in the New GM.”

` FBI refuses to run `Nationwide Background Checks ‘ on people applying to license `Legal Marijuana Businesses in Washington ‘

#AceWorldNews The FBI is refusing to run nationwide background checks on people applying to run legal marijuana businesses in Washington state, even though it has conducted similar checks in Colorado – a discrepancy that illustrates the quandary the Justice Department faces as it allows the states to experiment with regulating a drug that’s long been illegal under federal law, according to (Seattle) AP .

Washington state has been asking for nearly a year if the FBI would conduct background checks on its applicants, to no avail.

The bureau’s refusal raises the possibility that people with troublesome criminal histories could wind up with pot licenses in the state – undermining the department’s own priorities in ensuring that states keep a tight rein on the nascent industry.

MU Researchers Find #Fracking Chemicals Disrupt Hormone Function

#AceHealthNews says that Endocrine-disrupting activity is linked to birth defects and infertility

Shale GasUniversity of Missouri researchers have found greater hormone-disrupting properties in water located near hydraulic fracturing drilling sites than in areas without drilling. The researchers also found that 11 chemicals commonly used in the controversial “#fracking” method of drilling for oil and natural gas are endocrine disruptors.

Endocrine disruptors interfere with the body’s endocrine system, which controls numerous body functions with hormones such as the female hormone estrogen and the male hormone androgen. Exposure to endocrine-disrupting chemicals, such as those studied in the MU research, has been linked by other research to cancer, birth defects and infertility.

Dr. Nagel
Susan Nagel Phd

“More than 700 chemicals are used in the #fracking process, and many of them disturb hormone function,” said Susan Nagel, PhD, associate professor of obstetrics, gynecology and women’s health at the MU School of Medicine. “With #fracking on the rise, populations may face greater health risks from increased endocrine-disrupting chemical exposure.”

The study involved two parts. The research team performed laboratory tests of 12 suspected or known endocrine-disrupting chemicals used in hydraulic fracturing, and measured the chemicals’ ability to mimic or block the effects of the reproductive sex hormones estrogen and androgen. They found that 11 chemicals blocked estrogen hormones, 10 blocked androgen hormones and one mimicked estrogen.

The researchers also collected samples of ground and surface water from several sites, including:

  • Accident sites in Garfield County, Colo., where hydraulic fracturing fluids had been spilled
  • Nearby portions of the Colorado River, the major drainage source for the region
  • Other parts of Garfield County, Colo., where there had been little drilling
  • Parts of Boone County, Mo., which had experienced no natural gas drilling

The water samples from drilling sites demonstrated higher endocrine-disrupting activity that could interfere with the body’s response to androgen and estrogen hormones. Drilling site water samples had moderate-to-high levels of endocrine-disrupting activity, and samples from the Colorado River showed moderate levels. In comparison, the researchers measured low levels of endocrine-disrupting activity in the Garfield County, Colo., sites that experienced little drilling and the Boone County, Mo., sites with no drilling.

“#Fracking is exempt from federal regulations to protect water quality, but spills associated with natural gas drilling can contaminate surface, ground and drinking water,” Nagel said. “We found more endocrine-disrupting activity in the water close to drilling locations that had experienced spills than at control sites. This could raise the risk of reproductive, metabolic, neurological and other diseases, especially in children who are exposed to endocrine-disrupting chemicals.”

The study, “Estrogen and Androgen Receptor Activities of Hydraulic Fracturing Chemicals and Surface and Ground Water in a Drilling-Dense Region,” was published in the journal Endocrinology.
