The Supreme Court of the United States declined to hear an appeal of Mississippi’s “Protecting Freedom of Conscience from Government Discrimination Act,” allowing a lower court ruling in favor of the law to stand, ensuring religious freedom in the the Magnolia State.
The state legislature passed the law to give religious-minded citizens the freedom to not violate their conscience. The legislation does not allow a business owner to refuse service discriminately, but provides protections if someone declines to participate in a ceremony or event that might go against their religious beliefs.
Republican Governor Phil Bryant signed the bill into law in April 2016. The ACLU immediately sued the state, claiming that the legislation is discriminatory.
District Judge Carlton Reeves struck down part of the law in June 2016, but a three-judge panel of the U.S. Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals reversed that decision. The court ruled that the plaintiffs could not “show clear injury-in-fact that satisfies the ‘irreducible constitutional minimum of standing,'” Life Site News notes.
The case then went to the Supreme Court, which declined to hear it, solidifying the Fifth Circuit’s ruling.
According to Life Site News, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has banned state employees from travel to Mississippi in response to the Freedom of Conscience Act.
Senior Counsel Kevin Theriot of the Alliance Defending Freedom praised the decision. “We are pleased that the Supreme Court declined to take up these baseless challenges,” he said. “Those who haven’t been and won’t be harmed by this law shouldn’t be allowed to restrict freedom for others.”
He explained that the purpose of the law was to ensure that citizens “don’t live in fear of losing their careers or their businesses simply for affirming marriage as a husband-wife union.”
The Supreme Court declined to comment on why they chose not to hear the case, though it has been theorized that it could influence other religious cases including the Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission.
The Mis-education of Uncle Tom. The Racist Democrats. Part 2
The left will rewrite history, whether it be Uncle Tom or Confederate statues. Don’t believe the hype.
In 1852 Harriet Beecher Stowe wrote the fictional novel, Uncle Tom’s Cabin. The character Uncle Tom was based on a real life person, Josiah Henson a former slave. Uncle Tom’s Cabin was the most read book of the 19th Century. There was printing day and night 24 hours a day to keep up with demand. It was translated into over 60 languages. As history would have it, President Abraham Lincoln the first Republican President, met Harriet Beecher Stowe and said, “So you’re the little lady that wrote the book that started this big war”. Uncle Tom’s Cabin was that influential.
Uncle Tom’s Cabin had such an impact on the abolition of slavery, that the southern slave states made it a crime punishable by imprisonment or death to have, read, print or sell the book. It was even popular internationally putting more pressure on the institution of slavery. This gave a big boost to the slavery abolitionists movement among whites, blacks, Christians and the Republican party.
The real Uncle Tom was born Josiah Henson June 15th, 1789 in (Charles County) Rockville, Maryland. He was seperated from his family at 9 years old when his father back-talked a slave owner and was punished with a hundred lashes and had his right ear cut off. Josiah was owned by slave master Isaac Riley. Riley beat a young Josiah unconscious for having a book of grammar. It was forbidden in those days for a slave to learn how to read. But later on Josiah saved money to buy his freedom. To his dismay he was cheated out of his savings and freedom by master Riley. He then escaped to freedom in Kentucky. Soon many that escaped with him were sold and auctioned off. Then in 1850 in the compromise agreement the Democrat slave states were able to get into the legislation the Fugitive Slave Act which made it possible for Marshal’s to automatically deputize anyone in free states to help apprehend a runaway slave from a slave state. This was a strengthening of the Fugitive Slave Act of 1793 which covered runaway slaves, who sought freedom in free states. So Josiah Henson and his family of two children and a wife trekked 600 miles on foot from Cincinnati to Canada to freedom. That was the only place where a man could be truly free after the Fugitive Slave Act of 1850.
Josiah started a Black settlement in Ontario, Canada with a multi-racial school which was unheard of at that time. He became a minister, author, educator and abolitionist who helped 100 slaves escape to Canada to freedom. He preached all over the U.S. and Europe, even getting a personal meeting with the Queen of England, Queen Victoria.
Josiah also lead a Black Militant Unit in The Canadian Rebellion of 1837-38. The Rebellions of Upper and Lower Canada were against The British Crown and political reform.
The southern slave states could not let the positive heroic legend of Uncle Tom stand. His faithful and brave character in the fictitious book who was beaten by Sambo every night until his death had to be diminished, as not to embolden the other slaves to follow in Josiah’s cavernous footsteps. So they created the Uncle Tom traveling minstrel show. This depicted Uncle Tom as a dumb, ignorant buffoonish character. This show traveled all over erasing the positive image of Josiah the real Uncle Tom. Remember at this time many still were forbidden to read but everyone could understand a traveling minstrel show. That even made it all the more sinister. Feeding falsehoods to and unsuspecting people. And to this day our people do not know Josiah Henson, the real Uncle Tom, educator, minister, author, abolitionist and goodwill ambassador. Do not let them rewrite history. Do not let them tear down his statue.

Are the CDC, local governments or politicians responsible for falsely labeling homicide deaths as COVID-19?
As per the Cedar Rapids Police Department they say the body of Jordan Driver Haynes, was found in a vehicle along I-380 was murdered. The county medical examiners office has identified the body and ruled cause of death a homicide. The circumstances are still under investigation. So if the police find an apparent homicide victim confirmed by the county coroner, how can this person come up on the list as a COVID-19 pandemic victim? This has been happening very often, and has been documented and reported. Family members have relatives die of various illnesses and accidents and then find somewhere that their loved ones death has been listed as COVID-19.
We have to expound on the financial incentives for this fraud. A COVID-19 patient brings $13,000 reimbursement to the hospital from the government. A COVID-19 patient put on a ventilator brings $39,000 from the government. Many hospitals and local governments are running in the red and hemorrhaging funds. In New York City in close to twenty years 16 major hospitals have been closed down. Many blue states are close to insolvency. So the big dollars of the COVID-19 come up may be too sweet for some hospitals and governments to give up. Some doctors have said they have been pressured to label deaths as COVD-19.
So may things about this pandemic situation has not panned out to be what we were sold. The people are skeptical because of prediction after prediction after prediction has been wrong, from the amount of ventilators to the peak of hundreds of thousands dead in a week, to the hospitals being overrun and so on. The so called experts have been, wrong, wrong, wrong. The governors and mayors of blue states seem to relish wielding their draconian dictatorial powers to oppress their loyal subjects unnecessarily. The masses are starting to push back. Now we are having a decline in deaths and infections and an increase in suicides. The tide is starting to turn where the people are saying enough! The virus does not override my constitutional right of freedom to assemble and freedom to practice my religion in my designated house of worship.
The people are saying enough we want our lives back!

SJWs Attack Woman Who Made Native American Feather Art Online
Lauren Jean Welding LLC Facebook page had posted a new artistic addition to her roster of impressive work. Unfortunately, completely lacking all logic and frankly mad that someone who have such a hobby that doesn’t include ruining your life or succumbing to our poison pill American culture, the wild pack of SJWs closed in on their target, a woman in Montana who enjoys making Welding Art.
They decided to take their anger out on someone who created a piece of art, giving her bad reviews (currently sitting at 1.2 Stars) & commenting obvious and recycled leftist gibberish.
It’s important to note that a woman, Elizabeth Warren specifically, ran a whole Presidential Election without one word from these people. Her entire career was uplifted and guided by the fact she had applied and then apologized for literally lying about being a Native American. The lack of irony is not without mentioning many of these people would never dare question one of their own.
Go support her page and her collection of art from the masses of future cat ladies and men who share their girlfriends!
