  • ACLU: Forcing Faith Out of Adoption

    Editor's note: This column was co-authored by FRC intern Natalie Pugh.It may have been unintentional, but a recent lawsuit brought by the American Civil Liberties Union could nonetheless result in many children being displaced from adoption agencies who would otherwise have been happy to care for them and find families to adopt them.The ACLU is currently suing the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services and the Michigan Children’s Services Agency for allowing religious adoption agencies to adhere to their faith tenets as they conduct their work—which for them means placing children in a home with a mom and a...

    The first anniversary of the election of President Donald Trump is to be marked this Wednesday, November 8, in Dublin, in what is being dubbed by organizers as a night of resistance. To be held in association with the Irish Refugee Council and their projects working with young people in Irelands Direct Provision system, Irish Stand is the second event of its kind to be held by the grassroots movement which supports civil rights protections for all immigrants. Last St. Patricks Day 2017 in New York, over 1,500 people gathered in the Riverside Church in Manhattan to take an Irish...

    Earlier this year, a final settlement was reached in the war on the NYPDs counterterrorist Islamic surveillance. The Manhattan courtroom where the lawfare effort to dismantle the NYPDs ability to stop terrorist attacks was heard is blocks away from the site of the latest Islamic terrorist attack in New York.

    WASHINGTON Groups have filed a federal lawsuit challenging the State Departments refusal to process visa applications for winners of the U.S. Diversity Visa Program lottery who hail from the six countries covered by President Trumps Muslim ban. The lawsuit was brought by Jenner & Block LLP, the American Civil Liberties Union, the ACLU of the District of Columbia, the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee, and the National Immigration Law Center. It was filed on behalf of lottery winners from Iran and Yemen, and charges the federal government with running afoul of federal law and regulations by refusing to issue visas to...
  • ACLU on Sharia: Dont Worry, Be Happy

    Gates of Vienna ^ | 27 Oct, 2017 | Baron Bodissey
    The ACLU chapter president in Palm Beach, Florida recently gave a deceptive presentation entitled Sharia Law: Nothing to Fear. Mark Schneider, a non-lawyer, attempted to put a happy face on this alien and malignant doctrine, plowing straight ahead without realizing just how bad he looked doing it. Early on, he said not to worry about sharia law because, while stoning for adultery, chopping off hands for thievery, and other barbaric punishments are on the law books in some Muslim countries, they are infrequently used. However, stoning for adultery is found in multiple hadiths, an authoritative source of sharia law. The...
  • ACLU Wants Illegal Immigrant's (Unborn) Child Terminated

    10/25/2017 8:26:07 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 10 replies ^ | October 25, 2017 | Terry Jeffrey
    The American Civil Liberties Union wants to see the unborn child of a young woman who is illegally in the United States terminated -- through what it insists is her "right" to abort that child. Judge Karen LeCraft Henderson of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia best summarized the key facts in the case of Garza v. Hargan. "In or about early July 2017, 17-year-old Jane Doe (J.D.) became pregnant," Henderson wrote in dissenting from her court's ruling in this case. "On or about September 7, 2017, she attempted to enter the United States illegally and...

    The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday sided with a lower court that ordered a New Mexico city to remove a Ten Commandments monument from the lawn outside City Hall. Civil liberties advocates behind the case called the decision involving the city of Bloomfield a victory for the separation of church and state. ACLU of New Mexico Executive Director Peter Simonson said it sends a strong message that the government should not be in the business of picking and choosing which sets of religious beliefs enjoy special favor in the community. However, David Cortman, a senior counsel and vice president of...

    The war on cops is moving from the streets to the U.S. Supreme Court. Last week, the Justices heard a case that threatens police officers with financial ruin if they make arrests and the charges later get dropped. It started with a late night bash. District of Columbia police officers were called by neighbors at 1 a.m. to investigate a rowdy party at an unoccupied row house. The police found 21 partygoers, liquor, trash, and used condoms strewn about, the smell of marijuana, and women with cash stuffed in their thongs. The partygoers scattered, hiding in closets. When questioned, some...

    A campus Black Lives Matter protest against an American Civil Liberties Union speaker has provoked an internal debate over free speech on the Left. Students shouted down an ACLU leader visiting the College of William and Mary in Virginia last week, preventing a discussion about free speech by chanting "liberalism is white supremacy" and "ACLU, you protect Hitler too!" for a full hour. Outrage spread as video of the college Black Lives Matter chapter's disruption circulated among shocked scholars, progressive leaders, and alumni.

    A Washington state woman filed a lawsuit Thursday against the Catholic health organization she works for, saying it discriminated against her by refusing to pay for her child's chest reconstruction surgery as the child transitions to be a boy. The American Civil Liberties Union is representing Cheryl Enstad and her teenage son Pax, who allege PeaceHealth violated both Obamacare and state law in refusing to cover the treatment. The mother worked as a medical social worker for PeaceHealth and received insurance coverage through her employer. When Pax was diagnosed with gender dysphoria, his doctor suggested he have chest reconstructive...

    Liberal Democrats have indoctrinated America's children for decades. They thought they would create an army of loyal little lemmings that would obey the calls to duty when summoned. Even after meeting with the campus president, the now-culturally-appropriated Black Lives Matter chapter of the College of William & Mary issued some of their grievances on September 27th.

    It was the last remark she was able to make before protesters drowned her out with cries of, "ACLU, you protect Hitler, too." They also chanted, "the oppressed are not impressed," "shame, shame, shame, shame," (an ode to the Faith Militant's treatment of Cersei Lannister in Game of Thrones, though why anyone would want to be associated with the religious fanatics in that particular conflict is beyond me), "blood on your hands," "the revolution will not uphold the Constitution," and, uh, "liberalism is white supremacy." This went on for nearly 20 minutes. Eventually, according to the campus's Flat Hat News,...

We may be experiencing to advent of two classic novels in our lifetime. Were Orwell and Rand modern day prophets? Consider this: In the novel Nineteen Eighty-Four, by George Orwell, the Thought Police (Thinkpol) are the secret police of the superstate Oceania, who discover and punish "thoughtcrimes" which are defined as personal and political thoughts unapproved by "the Party." Thinkpol used criminal psychology and omnipresent surveillance to monitor and arrest all citizens of "Oceania" who would commit...

When we became aware of it last week, it was discontinued. Employees at the Motel 6 at one of the locations near a stretch of other budget motels, discount stores and fast food chain...

    The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) warned President Trump on Tuesday that only Congress can authorize a military strike on North Korea, as tensions with Pyongyang continue to escalate. The American Civil Liberties Union strongly urges you to uphold the Constitution, and the fundamental principle of separation of powers, by recognizing the sole authority of Congress to declare war and to refrain from the use of force against North Korea in the absence of explicit congressional authorization for the use of force, the group wrote in a letter to Trump on Tuesday. This drumbeat of threats over the past...

    BALTIMORE (AP) The American Civil Liberties Union has filed a lawsuit challenging President Donald Trumps ban on transgender individuals joining the military. The federal lawsuit was filed in Maryland on Monday by the ACLU of Maryland on behalf of several service members who are transgender. Trump directed the Pentagon on Friday to implement the ban on transgender individuals joining the military, which he first announced in a tweet. He also gave to the Pentagon the authority to decide the future of openly transgender people already serving. The lawsuit says Trumps policy violates the equal protection rights of transgender service...
  • Sheriff Arpaio Gets A Get of Jail Freebe from POTUS

    WASHINGTON ― President Donald Trump on Friday pardoned a notorious former Arizona sheriff who willfully violated a federal judge’s order by unlawfully detaining individuals his officers claimed might be in the country illegally. Former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, who had previously proclaimed himself “America’s toughest sheriff,” was convicted of criminal contempt last month for violating a 2011 order that barred Arpaio and his office from detaining individuals solely based on suspicions about their legal status. Arpaio, 85, was scheduled to be sentenced on Oct. 5. “Throughout his time as Sheriff, Arpaio continued his life’s work of protecting the public...
