I am not afraid of Russia attacking the united states.
The far more grave concern is of waking up one morning in the Caliphate, ala a Red Dawn scenario.
The first article relates to the hidden Islamic institution within the united states school systems.
The second article relates to the hidden information that the President of the Islamic Republic of Turkey in collusion with the Obama Administration has established secret Islamic Water Courts through the American Tribal governments on Indian reservations.
Evidence exists that groundwork has been well laid for Sharia Law to suddenly replace the Constitution of the united states as the supreme law of the land.
I am not going to pretend to understand what's going on in Turkey right now, but the attempted coup has turned a media spotlight on cleric Fethullah Gulen, who has lived for many years in exile in the Poconos. Gulen might or might not have anything to do with the coup; he denied any involvement and suggested that Turkey's President Recep Tayyip Erdogan might have staged the whole thing to tighten his hold on power. Gulen is, however, more clearly linked to an extensive charter school network in the United States, including Harmony Public Schools, the largest charter network in Texas. The schools generally advance a STEM-focused curriculum and are not accused of religious indoctrination, though they have aroused concerns related to financial transparency and preferential treatment of Turkish teachers and contractors. (Some Fethullahist schools outside the U.S., by contrast, are overtly religious.) Additional concerns about the American schools surfaced earlier this summer, when the Turkish government lodged a complaint with the Texas Education Agency.
Given my research background, I look at this story and think, Americans United for Separation of Church and State should be all over this! This is exactly the kind of scenario the organization was founded to combat! AU is not, in fact, all over it, though religion in public schools, government subsidies of religion, and school vouchers are three of the group's top 10 issues. AU did mention Gulen once in a 2012 piece on charter schools. That AU isn't taking particular notice of this story is a useful reminder of how mobile the “wall of separation between church and state” has been over the years, even for the most prominent organization devoted to bolstering it.
Start with the name. Now shortened, it began in 1947 as Protestants and Other Americans United for the Separation of Church and State. AU elides that bit of history on its own “about” page. There's a better capsule history on the finding aid for the AU archives at Princeton University. The “Protestants” in the original name was not incidental. The group's founders included a who's-who of the Federal Council of Churches, and its manifesto was mostly written by Christian Century editor Charles Clayton Morrison. The church these men wanted to keep separate from the state was the Roman Catholic Church, which had, in their view, encroached on American religious liberty via President Harry Truman's diplomatic recognition of the Vatican and, more alarmingly, via Everson v. Board of Education (1947), which allowed state funds to be used for the transportation of students to Catholic parochial schools.
Morrison's manifesto is not readily available online (if anyone can find a link, please post it in the comments), but Jesuit theologian John Courtney Murray's response is. Murray saw what the POAU founders denied, namely that their wall of separation between the Catholic church and the American state also served to cement the connection between Protestants and the American state. Murray wrote, dryly,
“For its own part, PU has no sectarian interest. There is great insistence on its purely political aim, most meticulous disavowal of any anti-Catholic animus, most explicit denial of any intention to introduce religious divisions into political life, most thoroughgoing repudiation of all religious intolerance. On the banner of PU is not written, 'No Popery!' but simply 'Separation of Church and State!' (Or more in particular, 'No Myron C. Taylor at the Vatican!' and 'No Money for Catholic Schools!')
“This banner is raised in the midst of a 'united Protestantism which is sinking its own differences in a common effort' to enforce these two great negations. All Protestants, therefore, are declared in; an earnest invitation is extended to patriotic Jews; and the doors are open even to those Catholics who happen to have some 'patriotic loyalty.' Moreover, in addition to enlisting individual citizens in support of its negations, PU also offers itself 'to all churches and synagogues as their own instrument' for the high political purpose of bringing to bear 'their prompt and concerted resistance to the encroachments' of the Catholic Church. Consequently, PU appears not only as a political lobby, but as a political lobby that is the instrument of all organized religious forces in the United States, except the Catholic Church.”
POAU was able to couch its opposition to the Catholic Church as patriotic in part because it saw the Catholic Church as a political entity. In the words of the 1960 “POAU Statement on Religious Issue,” occasioned by John F. Kennedy's presidential run, “The Roman Catholic Church is both a Church and a State.” The POAU grounded this assertion in canon law against Catholic children attending public schools, and in the existence of Catholic political parties outside the U.S.
Which brings me back to the Harmony schools. I'm pretty sure they take more public funding than Catholic schools in the 1940s did, and they have actually, not just hypothetically, brought with them the entanglement of a foreign government. But foreign entanglement is no longer a top concern at the PU-now-AU. Rather, the AU is most concerned with fortifying a wall between certain forms of American Protestantism and the American state. Partisans of that kind of Protestantism now sponsor their own private schools (see Seth Dowland's Family Values for more on that story), which has to be one reason why Texas of all places became home to so many Gulen-affiliated schools. Americans remain as fond of walls as ever, but it grows more and more difficult to agree on where to put them.

“…give it away, give it away, give it away, now…”As it would appear, the Red Hot Chili Peppers gained a new member in their band by the name of Senator Steve Daines (R), Montana. Daines cannot resist giving away what is not his to give away, the norm these days rather than the exception for elected officials. The other “norm” is to keep submitting legislation until they sneak, pass, force, or redact it into law. Daines is a kind of quiet, unassuming man who is conservative at first appearance and first words. He was opposed to the CKST (Consolidated Kootenai & Salish Tribes) Water Compact that has been ratified into state law and is now merely awaiting Federal approval (and funding, naturally).

This little piece is different. That damnable demon of the USC has been raised, cited, and utilized to “justify” under the color of law a new Senate Bill’s introduction that will affect the whole country if it is passed, flat out. The existing legislation can be found under 25USC3115 and 25USC3104. The new bill proposes this:
Turning over huge tracts of Federal Forest lands – any federally managed forest area that is within a 200-mile radius of an Indian Reservation – and hand over management of that land to the Indian Tribes.
That’s right, and a portion of what comes up in the screenshot of the introduced bill reads “the Secretary concerned may treat Federal forest land as Indian forest land for purposes of planning and conducting forest land management activities.” It doesn’t beat around the bush, does it? Now the CKST water compact, if you have read my past articles regarding it is Montana State law, and the state has committed to $11 million toward instituting control of all surface and subsurface water in Northwestern Montana.
It is an Agenda 21 measure to take over the outlying areas. Montana only raised $3 million, and that doesn’t even scratch the surface of the grand total of $57 million estimated that is needed to put meters on all private wells, turn over the “management” to the Indian tribes, and the enforcement over to DHS. This water, incidentally, is all off-reservation water…not even water on Tribal lands.
Subsequently to that monstrosity being signed into law and “removing” the rights of citizens to their water came Weyerhaeuser. They bought out Plum Creek, the only self-sustaining plywood mill in Northwestern Montana located in Columbia Falls. Now comes the news that they’re shutting down the whole plant, firing 200+ employees, and using their interests in the area to buy more timber while transferring ownership of a large percentage of their lands to the Federal Government…specifically the USFS and the BLM.
Now enter Daines and his hokey “management” bill that essentially ramrods the United States citizens and hands over their lands to the Tribes, who have declared themselves to be sovereign nation. Representative Ryan Zinke (R), MT, is backing Daines measure and pursuing legislation in a similar vein.
All of this is proof positive of Alex Jones’ “Illusion of Choice” platform regarding political parties and elections as being illusory and only to mollify a public whose freedoms and rights have already been stolen from them.
Montana alone has 7 Indian reservations, so judging by the radius suggested in the Daines proposed legislation, does that mean after it’s signed into law the entire state will be “managed” by the Indian tribes? How will this affect other areas of the country with vast tracts of Federal Forest lands?
The big question: How much did one of the oligarchs behind the scenes either slip or promise Daines to obtain his service toward the Agenda 21 objectives?
There are no Republicans or Democrats…just “soft” Marxists and Marxists. There is no representation for the American people, just “paper people” who jump up and down on a platform until they’re elected…and then either do a complete one-eighty or subtly hack away at our rights akin to termites for money or additional political power. Mind you, they’re worse than “phonies” because they know exactly what they’re doing, and they don’t care…as long as their interests and families are taken care of. That is how they justify giving away what is not theirs…and even taking a piece of it for themselves.
