Michigan Town Hall Meeting Filled With Shouting Liberals During Opening Prayer
The “tolerant” liberals revealed once again how tolerant they are when a local pastor stood to pray at the opening of a town hall meeting
in Gaylord, Michigan.
A number of liberal activists wearing pink hats like those donned at the Washington Women’s March recently shouted down a
prayer delivered at a town hall gathering in Michigan, chanting repeatedly, “Separation of Church and State!”
The incident occurred last Thursday in Gaylord during a meeting held by Republican Rep. Jack Bergman. Derek Hagland of Grace
Baptist Church approached the podium to deliver the invocation, but some attendees rose to their feet and began chanting.
“Separation of Church and State! Separation of Church and State!” they called out over and over, while others stood or sat quietly, or
bowed their head in respect.
Hagland moved forward with his prayer, appearing to ignore those being disruptive.
The liberal protestors shouted the entire time the pastor prayed:
This guy was giving [an] invocation,” Bergman Communication Director Farahn Morgan told Breitbart News. “He was not
necessarily party affiliated in any way. That kind of reaction to him? It was the most aggressive that the crowd got during the entire
event which was, quite honestly, shocking.”
The chanting lasted the duration of the prayer as an attendee swept the crowd with their camera, capturing those heckling the
At the end of the prayer, as Hagland said “amen,” some present clapped and cheered as if in support of the pastor.
When liberals protest prayer in public places we should pray louder and longer. When liberals tell us that we cannot mention Jesus in
public places we should call his name out louder and longer. When liberal shout out “Separation of church and state” during a prayer like
this, we should pray louder and longer.
Under no circumstance should Christians stop praying when liberals protest. Daniel opened his windows and prayed three times a day in
spite of the King’s protest. The Biblical precedent has already been set for us to follow.
In town halls all across this country, conservative Christians need to stand up for Jesus and prayer by refusing to give in one tiny little bit
to these hypocritical “tolerant” liberals.
No One Knows How Ivy League Schools Spent $246 Million of Tax Payers Money
Here’s a story that should get the attention of people concerned with accountability of government funds!
An analysis of over $200 million in research projects conducted by Ivy League institutions found that none disclosed how they spent
taxpayer dollars, in violation of federal law.
Senators are now asking the Government Accountability Office to investigate how many federally funded projects are not standing
the scrutiny of how taxpayer dollars are spent.
Failure to report how government funds are spent is a crime:
The report conducted by White Coat Waste Project, a bipartisan organization seeking an end to taxpayer-funded animal
experiments, and co-authored by Restore Accountability, identified 100 National Institutes of Health studies that did not disclose
funding in press releases. The nondisclosure violates the Stevens Amendment, a three decades-old transparency rule.
White Coat Waste found "widespread transparency failures by Ivy League universities receiving more than $2 billion annually from
the National Institutes of Health," according to the report.
This report demonstrates that 100 percent of these universities' 2016 press releases detailing NIH-funded animal experiments-
representing nearly a quarter-billion dollars in taxpayer funds-violated federal law requiring disclosure of government funding
details," the group said.
Here are some of the moronic experiments being funded by the government in these schools:
Examples include a $230,000 project conducted by New York University and the University of Rochester that studied whether
"monkeys prefer photographs of other monkeys' rear-ends on red or blue backgrounds.
A $3.4 million Northwestern University project dubbed "Hamster Cage Matches" that studied the aggression levels in hamster fights
also did not disclose how it spent the taxpayer funding.
One hundred additional studies conducted by Brown, Columbia, Cornell, Dartmouth, Harvard, U. Penn, Princeton, and Yale were
publicized in press releases by the schools, but did not disclose how the funding, totaling $246 million, was spent.
"If our nation's eight most prominent educational institutions are systematically violating funding disclosure law, the problem likely
extends to the thousands of other entities receiving the balance of the NIH’s $32 billion annual research budget, and grantees of
other agencies covered by the Stevens Amendment," the report said.
The law that requires disclosure of government funds was passed in 1989:
The Stevens Amendment, passed in 1989, requires grant recipients to disclose the amount of federal funds received, what
percentage of the total costs was spent, and what will be spent by nongovernment sources in any press release or document that
mentions the project.
Government waste is a big problem, and liberal Ivy League schools need to report every thin dime they spend that has been given to them
by the American taxpayers.
Republicans in Washington Pushing for Religious Freedom Executive Order
Dozens of Republican lawmakers are asking President Trump to scale back Obama-era protections for gays and lesbians in order to
make good on a campaign promise to protect religious liberty.
In early February, Trump was reportedly considering an executive order that would reverse former president Barack Obama's orders
prohibiting discrimination against gays and lesbians in the federal workforce or by federal contractors. But the order was never
A group of 51 members of the House wrote to Trump this month to "request that you sign the draft executive order on religious
liberty, as reported by numerous outlets on February 2, 2017, in order to protect millions of Americans whose religious freedom has
been attacked or threatened over the last eight years." The letter has not been publicly released but was obtained by USA TODAY.
President Trump is trying to find middle ground on this issue:
…on Monday, a senior White House official told USA TODAY that some sort of policy to protect religious liberty is still in the works,
but that the president is trying to find middle ground. The official did not want to publicly discuss a policy that is still under
The official said that Trump has been clear about his support for the LGBTQ community - including following the shooting at a gay
nightclub in Orlando and again during the Republican National Convention - and that he does not support any kind of discrimination.
But Trump also believes there should be policies that allow for people to express and maintain their strongly held religious beliefs,
the official said.
The official acknowledged it would be a delicate balance and said discussions were ongoing about how best to proceed.
Republicans are trying to protect religious liberty in the medical fields as well:
Beyond the workforce protections, the widely circulated draft order would have eliminated the contraceptive mandate that requires
religious institutions to provide health insurance for birth control. Republicans lawmakers are also pushing for the order to allow for
doctors to refuse to perform abortions based on religion. They also want to see protections for religious non-profits to be able to
express political opinions without losing their tax-exempt status.
There is no excuse for the government to fail in its recognition of individuals who oppose perverse lifestyles for religious reasons.
Nuclear Attack Drills Taking Place Along East Coast
Federal authorities are running nuclear response drills at MetLife Stadium in northern New Jersey.
Homeland Security and FEMA are conducting Operation Gotham Shield. The purpose is to practice how to assess, treat and
evacuate victims during a potential nuclear attack in the New York City area.
The drills simulate a scenario in which a 10,000 ton improvised nuclear device goes off on the New Jersey side of the Lincoln
MetLife Stadium is serving as the primary response center during the multi-day drills. The stadium is in East Rutherford, about 15
minutes outside of Manhattan.
The New Jersey and New York emergency management organizations are also taking part.
The exercise is part of several that are taking place along the Northeast Corridor. Other drills are taking place in Washington, D.C.
Given the present threats from nations like North Korea, it seems that Homeland Security is taking nuclear possibilities seriously. This also
shows that the government considers the threats substantial enough to prepare for them.
