ABOUT THE AUTHOR
As a new contributor to the Rutherford Reader, I would like to introduce myself to those unfamiliar with my work. As a retired police officer from NY, my experience with Islamic issues came after attending a seminar with 2 NYPD officers after 9/11. As heartbreaking and eye opening it was, I began to research, and interview Muslims within my own patrol area, only to find their entrenchment was for infiltration and indoctrination.
As retirement approached, I developed a three day course to teach law enforcement around the country about what I had learned, and how to apply it within their own jurisdictions. Eventually, CAIR ( Council on American Islamic Relations) learned of this course, and pressured the company I worked for to end it.
Delving into every subject related to the Islamic movement, I attended bomb schools, threat assessment courses and began reading the doctrines of Islam, from the Quran to the Hadiths and the classic books of Islamic law.
Since moving to TN 8 years ago, I have watched the Islamic movement grow and flourish within the Buckle of the Bible Belt. Joining with retired military, law enforcement and counter intel professionals, dailyrollcall was formed, as well as the website dailyrollcall.com.
We work hard everyday to find the latest movements and activities by Islamists throughout our country but specifically in Tennessee. After vetting information, it is exposed and has revealed connections to global Muslim Brotherhood organizations right here in our backyard.
From our law enforcement to churches to classrooms, to our own political system, Islamists have infiltrated with the end goal being eventual domination of the world. It’s a massive undertaking, but it is deeply underway. Each week, I hope to bring you the latest on the activities of Islamists here in Tennessee and what we can do. Stay tuned!

Nashville Tennessee can’t seem to hire a Chief of Police that doesn’t use food to curb crime. Years ago, former police chief Steve Anderson brought hot chocolate to protesters who had stopped traffic on interstate I-40. This week, as Steve Anderson was abruptly retired due to pressures from Mayor John Cooper, former Deputy Chief John Drake has been appointed as the interim Chief. During an interview discussing his priorities for the city, Drake said “I want to give ice cream” as a way to build trust with the community. Really?
Drake, a 33 year veteran of the Metro Nashville police claims he wants to completely transform the police department, which often leads to more problems, especially when your priorities lack common sense. Crime in Nashville, including shootings has increased tremendously over the last several months, yet Drake will fall under the thumb of Mayor Cooper in hopes he will be the permanent pick for the position.
Drake states working with the Mayor’s plan to stop the spread of Covid is his top priority. He also has plans to disband units that proactively patrol, protecting communities from potential crimes.
Another sorry attempt by the interim Chief to appease one community is his desire to have an all female recruiting drive so more females can rise through the ranks. As a retired female police officer, I find it disgraceful and offensive a Police Chief would consider promoting females just because they are female, not necessarily based on their merits or performance. Falling in line with the current political hot topics to get a permanent job should be a red flag.
Mayor John Cooper, the biggest mistake in office following disgraced Megan Barry, has chosen to further damage Nashville’s economy by harassing those who are trying to support businesses after the lock down. Cooper, who has not specifically said he wanted to defund the police, has signed on to former president Obama’s” My Brother’s Keeper Alliance”, which calls for drastic police reform, and ways to redirect funds to communities. Now Cooper has the audacity to use those same police to issue citations and make arrests for those not wearing masks.
More madness was revealed this week when Sharon Hurt, an at-large councilwoman of the Nashville Metro Council, wants those who don’t wear face masks during the coronavirus pandemic to be charged with attempted murder. Thank goodness, these morons are not in the law making business.
Cities across the nation are facing chaos and destruction on a regular basis in part due to the lack of leadership, and Nashville is no different. Mayor Cooper allowed thousands of protestors to march through city streets at the height of the “spread” of the virus, yet is trampling on citizens rights by harassing businesses and those who patronize them.
The hard core leftist agenda is alive and well in Nashville Tennessee, and while officials are releasing prisoners who now are roaming our city streets, these same nutty elected officials are using our police to arrest those who choose not to wear masks.
No longer is keeping Americans safe from criminals a priority, usurping Americans rights are.
From day 1, there has been a coup against President Donald Trump. We the American people have sat through day after day of relentless attacks and smears on his administration and against us, his supporters. For three years we have seen the true face of the democratic party be revealed as global elitists, supported and funded by filthy rich radical philanthropists, whose only goal is to ruin America. These same billionaires have bought the media, and politicians on both sides of the aisle. Collectively they have made the decision America must change, and not for the better.
We the people have watched what is supposed to be the best law enforcement establishment in the world, the FBI, turn against its country by aiding in this coup, lying and cheating to hopefully remove a duly elected president. We have watched as corrupt judges and politicians, and yes Republicans, continue to lie and build false narratives against the president. Never before has a former President of the United States publicly denounced and ridiculed a sitting president. Barack Obama and his staff of criminals have aided the enemy not only while in office, but still today. And yet they are free.
As these political criminals continue to dismantle our Constitution, they also continue to demolish every last bastion of safety and security we have always had; Our law enforcement. In a civil society, one would understand the effects and consequences of defunding those who protect and serve. However, if your goal is to create chaos and destruction, that is where you would begin.
And so it begins. What most of us never dreamed we could see happen to America, is in fact happening. The left, which we now clearly see are Marxists/Communists, have begun their final hoorah. With four months left before what should be the most important election of our lifetime, we should brace ourselves and prepare.
If you find this to be gloom and doom, then move on. If you think this isn’t happening, also move on. If you too see the writing on the wall, then listen up. Unfortunately, we are about to experience another lockdown. Turn coat Republican politicians are all in agreement, the dreaded “virus” of 2020 continues to grow new symptoms, and therefore any progress that has led to our freedom, is about to be pushed back. While there has been an illness that has claimed lives, it is the hoax surrounding that illness that is disrupting and destroying ours. We cannot afford to be shut down.
We cannot tolerate illegal mandates. We cannot allow more freedoms to be diminished and removed. This effort cannot be one that attracts only a handful of patriots, it must attract thousands. There is no longer an excuse. Yes, we all have our responsibilities, including our jobs, but if we continue down the road we are headed, those jobs will no longer exist anyway. We cannot have fear. We cannot think someone else will do it. We cannot let this continue.
While many will adamantly disagree, we must do what the left does. We must be louder, we must be stronger, and we must be greater in number. We must take back our city streets, we must protect our businesses and our homes. But most of all we must protect our God and our Constitution. Defiance is all we have left. If thousands refuse to obey these “orders,” if thousands show up in our cities and towns, if thousands put our elected officials on notice, we will see change, and we will win.
Take this as you will.
It is up to you. DO we allow America to no longer exist, or do we do what our forefathers did? If not us then who, if not now then when.
It is happening right before our eyes. The destruction of America by Communists and Marxists (Antifa) under the banner of black lives matter is continuing on a daily basis as political leaders sit on their hands for fear of being offensive. No longer is it just a statue issue either. They are coming for you.
As we lead up to the most important election of our time, BLM members and their Antifa counterparts promise to avenge anything white, or conservative by going after local, small town elected officials and business owners. “If this country doesn’t give us what we want, then we will burn down this system and replace it. All right? And I could be speaking figuratively. I could be speaking literally. It’s a matter of interpretation” says the leader of BLM in NYC Hawk Newsome.
“Let’s be very real,” Newsome said. “Let’s observe the history of the 1960s, when black people were rioting. We had the highest growth in wealth, in property ownership. Think about the last few weeks since we started protesting. There have been eight cops fired across the country.”
Using this intimidation and stoking fears of violence seems to be the trend, rather than using their voice at the ballot box, which proves the point BLM has been hijacked by Antifa types. Yet many blacks refuse to get angry at one of their own, Patrisse Cullors, who has no shame admitting on video she has been trained to be a Marxist.
Using the tactics from Communism adorer Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals, “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it. Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy. Go after people and not institutions; people hurt faster than institutions” seems to be how Antifa is pushing blacks attempting to shame white people into thinking they should have guilt or must repent for sins of ancestors.
These “movements” are increasingly becoming more dangerous and weaponized as their disgruntled members are empowered by their funders to spread their “actions” into suburban and rural areas. Local groups of BLM are now showing up at rallies meant to support law enforcement or President Trump, trying to intimidate and offend anyone present.
Whites are being forced to apologize for insensitive comments made on social media, to avoid losing their jobs. Any businesses using social media to support police are immediately boycotted and surrounded to force customers to leave. According to PJ Media “In Oregon City, a medium-sized city south of Portland, a protest group has organized a recall against the mayor. The suburb of Gresham saw resignations from its mayor, city manager, and chief of police. And in Salem, the state’s capital, several school board members have been targeted for destruction.” All because a small disenfranchised group decided they wanted to disrupt and dismantle.
The bottom line is unfortunately, in today’s volatile social climate, you must be prepared to face opposition and potential violence. Expect to be a target, and plan your reactions. From County commission and school board meetings to political town halls, know that groups may appear to attempt to force you into making bad, sudden decisions.
We as a civilized, law abiding society, we must not give in to those seeking to destroy us. Do not apologize. Do not make promises. Do not fear. Stand your ground.
Fight for what is right before it is too late.

As the 2020 Presidential election approaches, it is of utmost importance we demand our voting process works, and is run by unbiased, fair people. But will it be fair to the residents of Greene County TN? In February of this year, Lena Kendrick Dean, a Greene County election commissioner posted on social media her blatant disdain for President Donald Trump. Her posts contained foul, disgraceful pictures, including the below of a lipstick she proudly purchased, called “Fuck Trump”. Along with other derogatory statements regarding the President, we learned Ms. Dean is also on the leadership team of a well organized, radical group called “Indivisible”. While Ms. Dean defended her position by claiming Indivisible is just a group of people helping communities, it clearly is not, and has the stated mission to do whatever it takes to see President Trump lose.
Really? An election official publicly showing her hatred for a president who is running for re-election, and her role as a commissioner is to uphold the “purity of the vote? The residents of Greene County deserve to be assured their votes are guarded, and counted.
So who and what is Indivisible?
In January of 2017, Indivisible released “A Practical Guide For Resisting the Trump Agenda.” The main purpose for this guide was to compare lessons learned from the Tea Party movement, and how to get Congress to respond to your demands. The tactics and strategies advanced in the Indivisible Guide are modeled on those of the conservative Tea Party movement that came to prominence during President Barack Obama‘s first term in office
Indivisible was founded by five former Democratic congressional staffers in the immediate aftermath of Donald Trump’s victory over Hillary Clinton in the November 2016 presidential election. Indivisible’s first order of business was to launch a website devoted to providing leftists and liberals with strategies for countering the “radical, racist, and sexist” objectives of President Trump.
Indivisible’s modus operandi is rooted in the organizing tactics of Saul Alinsky, who wrote:
“Wherever possible, go outside the experience of the enemy. Here you want to cause confusion, fear, and retreat.”
“Power is not only what you have but what the enemy thinks you have.”
“The threat is usually more terrifying than the thing itself. If your organization is small in numbers,… conceal the members in the dark but raise a din and clamor that will make the listener believe that your organization numbers many more than it does.”
So when Ms. Dean posts pictures of herself and other Indivisible members doing good deeds for her community, know that the real agenda is based on Saul Alinsky and his “Rules for Radicals” mentality. Seems hard to imagine someone with these ideals could be fair as an election commissioner.
This is America, and certainly everyone is entitled to their opinions, and belong to opposing organizations. However, Ms Dean also has a responsibility to do a duty and conduct herself in a professional manner. According to the Greene County Election Commission webpage, it states:
The Greene County Election Commissions’ purpose as designated by Tennessee Code Annotated (2-1-102) is to:
Secure the freedom and purity of the ballot.
After exposing Ms Dean in February of 2020, many residents called both their local election office as well as the state Election Commission. Shortly after that, this author received a letter from an attorney asking to meet with Ms Dean to talk things over. It also stated many things written were not quite accurate, at which time we responded please advise us of any inaccuracies or falsehoods and we would certainly retract them. To date, there has never been a report of any such inaccuracies or falsehoods. Obviously, the letter was meant to attempt to stifle our findings regarding Ms Deans behavior.
Facts are facts. Can Ms Dean represent the Greene County voters in an unbiased, fair and credible manner? You be the judge.

The current climate has many believing if you do not support Black Lives Matter you are considered a racist. However, there are millions who do not support it, or find it credible due to it being founded on the lie “hands up don’t shoot.” Promoting an agenda based on a proven lie has diminished its struggle for justice. It all began with the death of Michael Brown in Ferguson, MI on August 9, 2014, at the hands of a white police officer. As the criminal acquittal of the officer caused communities to be enraged, former Attorney General Eric Holder launched an investigation to see if civil rights were violated. On page 8 of Eric Holders report it states the following:
“Although there are several individuals who have stated that Brown held his hands up in an unambiguous sign of surrender prior to Wilson shooting him dead, their accounts do not support a prosecution of Wilson. As detailed throughout this report, some of those accounts are inaccurate because they are inconsistent with the physical and forensic evidence; some of those accounts are materially inconsistent with that witness’s own prior statements with no explanation, credible for otherwise, as to why those accounts changed over time. Certain other witnesses who originally stated Brown had his hands up in surrender recanted their original accounts, admitting that they did not witness the shooting or parts of it, despite what they initially reported either to federal or local law enforcement or to the media. Prosecutors did not rely on those accounts when making a prosecutive decision.
“While credible witnesses gave varying accounts of exactly what Brown was doing with his hands as he moved toward Wilson – i.e., balling them, holding them out, or pulling up his pants up – and varying accounts of how he was moving – i.e., “charging,” moving in “slow motion,” or “running” – they all establish that Brown was moving toward Wilson when Wilson shot him. Although some witnesses state that Brown held his hands up at shoulder level with his palms facing outward for a brief moment, these same witnesses describe Brown then dropping his hands and “charging” at Wilson.”
The entire claim that Michael Brown was surrendering with his hands up exclaiming “don’t shoot” was proven not to be true. Another problem Black Lives Matter has, is the out right, public disdain for police. It is certainly a first amendment right to declare your hate for something, but promoting violence towards those you hate is something else. In a video originally captured by NBC, protestors in NYC are heard chanting “what do we want?” “Dead cops!” “When do we want it?” “Now!” This as the death of Eric Garner sparked new protests by Black Lives Matter in December of 2014.
Probably the most egregious faults of the Black Lives Matter movement is the slogan itself. How is it black lives matter, but only those killed at the hands of white police? Hundreds of black, mostly men are murdered every single day in cities throughout the United States, with Chicago leading the way. Why do their lives not matter enough for rage and demands for change? Do their families grieve any less because, their son was killed by one of their own? Did that life not matter enough because a white cop was not their killer? Murder is murder, but it seems to take a different perspective when a black is killed by a black.
It never fails that when a sign or chant declaring “all lives matter” is seen or heard, the word racist is used immediately. It is unfortunate what could be a symbol for change and justice is demeaned and exploited. Until those who lead the movement of Black Lives Matter shows their sincerity and willingness to be outraged at every black death, including the millions of black babies aborted, their cause will only appeal to those who are taken by lies not facts.
Murder is Murder…all lives matter.

As a retired police officer, I will stand by my statements that those in National Guardsmen or police uniform, on duty, that decide to lay down their equipment or bow in any way to protestors should be reprimanded and or removed.
This has nothing to do with rights to peacefully protest, this has to do with knowing what your duties are.
Compassion and respect can be shown by doing your job which is to provide a safe environment for these peaceful protestors and the surrounding community. It is not to make political statements, appease or sympathize. We took an oath to protect and serve, not to kneel and obey. If you think “serve” means to do what protestors want you are mistaken. Serving is upholding and enforcing the laws, and the Constitution.
Last evening on Nashville news channel 4, there was an exclusive “anonymous” interview with a TN National Guard soldier who was upset because his unit was being sent to help with riot control in Washington DC. (https://www.wsmv.com/…/article_18c3cdce-a5f0-11ea-9a8a-f773…)
The soldier said he doesn’t believe it’s the mission of the guard to silence peaceful protestors. That is the false narrative the media wants you the public to believe.
It is not about stopping peaceful protests, it is about stopping any further destruction and loss of police and innocent bystanders lives. If you believe that the violence is over, you are blind. Protests can and most likely will in some cases turn violent again.
This is not a debate over whether I know who personally issued the order either. The laying down of shields by those in uniform is a sign of weakness and disrespect to those police officers who have been killed or injured by protestors turned rioters. Wanna join the protestors do it, but not when you are supposed to have others’ backs as reinforcement and certainly not in uniform.
Do your damn job or leave it.

As America is focused on a virus and the effects of its lock down, Muslim terrorists are still among us waiting for the call to kill, which is what occurred recently, May 21 at the Corpus Christi Naval Air Station. Adam Salim Alsahli, supposedly a US citizen originally from Syria, open fired as he crashed through a security gate on the base, injuring one. Alsahli was shot and killed, but a second suspect has not been located at this time.
What could turn out to be significant, is the date this attack occurred. As the month of Ramadan winds down into its last 10 days, it is known that Laylatul Qadar or the “Night of Power” falls on an odd numbered day during those final days. The Night of Power is the most important of the days in Ramadan to Muslims as that is when the Angel Gabriel first revealed the Quran to the prophet Muhammad, which is declared here in Sura 97.
Any good deed performed on this night is more powerful than that of any other time, and also where all sins are forgiven. What follows next in the Quran in Sura 98 though, shows the violence the Quran promotes to those who are non- believers.
Alsahli’s twitter account shows his belief in the Mujaheddin, or the fighters, jihadis against non believers.
Many of the video on Alsahli’s Twitter and Instagram accounts also confirm his belief in the fight against non- believers. So now, there are many more questions regarding his connection to Al Qaida, and the Pensacola Florida terrorist, Mohammed Alshamrani who also was connected to Al Qaida. In 2017, ISIS declared that Muslims should use the month of Ramadan to attack, as the rewards for jihad and death during this month is multiplied.
So while many Americans continue to be complacent and many more are smitten by the Muslim community, the message one needs to understand is if a Muslim follows the life of their prophet Muhammad, and obeys the Suras in the Quran, jihad will continue, and escalate. Pandemics and lock downs don’t stop jihad.
I no longer can support the idea this virus is the threat to America.
Now the real threat is the leftist, morally corrupt politicians, both Democrats and Republicans, who continue this charade by promoting fear, and their vision of a “new normal.”
While we all can say we are living normal, and nothing has changed, we must see the bigger picture, and the reality is we aren’t living the way we used to. We are not back to normal, and I fear we never will be again.
Normal isn’t going to a grocery store that dictates your movements with arrows.
Normal isn’t businesses insisting a mask be worn to enter their premises.
Normal isn’t sports events without spectators.
Normal isn’t demanding schools follow alarming protocols in order to reopen.
Normal isn’t commercial after commercial promoting you’re safer at home.
Normal isn’t major retail stores closing due to bankruptcies.
Normal isn’t millions on unemployment.
Normal isn’t the federal government issuing bail outs to its citizens.
Normal isn’t using executive orders to arrest those not complying with them.
Normal isn’t churches not being open.
This is not “our” normal. What I fear is the division their vision for the new normal is causing. It no longer is about Democrats vs Republicans, it’s about who is wearing a mask or not, and who is obeying the rules or not No, there is nothing normal about today. The only thing left to do is unite, prepare and pray.
The New Normal?
Once again, in an effort to legitimize their oppression by their so-called religion, Muslim women are ecstatic non-Muslim women are wearing masks during the Corona virus crisis. In an recently published by the “Conversation” website, Muslim women across the UK and United States were interviewed regarding masks. “There’s a marked difference to the way I’m being perceived. Nobody is giving me dirty looks because of my gloves and the covered face,” said a woman I’ll call Afrah, from the the U.K., in a Facebook Messenger chat. “Everyone suddenly understands it!”
The article goes on to say how non-Muslim women are now seeking out typical Muslim garb, as fashion statements to protect against the corona virus. What non-Muslim women don’t get is Muslim women are forced to wear niqabs, burqas, and other oppressive face coverings as their obeyance to their god, as a form of modesty. While Muslim women like to say they wear it for that reason, if they are true Muslims, they conform to Sharia law,the Quran, and the Hadiths, all which demands they cover themselves .
The Council on America Islamic Relations (CAIR) Jamal Badawi, also a known member of the Muslim Brotherhood, who is viewed as a ‘moderate’ scholar, insists that the hijab is “a command of Allah to Muslim women” and it should be “the duty of the state” to enforce it.
In 2017, al-Azhar university in Egypt, the home of many Muslim Brotherhood scholars, decreed that the veil was compulsory for Muslim women… and not even open for debate: “It is not acceptable that anyone from the public or non-specialized people, regardless of their culture, to voice their opinions on the matter.” Can anyone seriously claim that the leading Sunni institution in the world doesn’t understand Islam?
“O Prophet! Tell your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers to draw their cloaks (veils) all over their bodies. That will be better, that they should be known so as not to be annoyed.” Quran 33:59
During this time of crisis throughout the U.S, schools are using various means of social media and computers to assist teachers and students stay on top of their lessons. Great idea. On March 25, 2020 the Tennessee Dept of Education it would be partnering with PBS to deliver “daily instructional content for Tennessee students during COVID-19 school closures.”
If the idea is to keep up with the classroom curriculum and state standards, (in particular social studies), it will most likely bring to life white washed versions of Islam, and even more disturbing are links to Muslim Brotherhood websites. In case you are not familiar with the Muslim Brotherhood, they are designated a terrorist organization throughout many Middle Eastern countries.
As the battle to end the disproportionate amount of time spent on Islam, and the inaccuracies included in it continues in schools across the state, many of the Social Studies lesson plans contain false views and data. One of the which shows how the small town is dealing with a huge influx of foreigners, who readily admit very early in the video, they prefer to stay in their own group. Assimilation by the Somalis has been an issue for some time since they refuse to do so. This video isn’t about educating students on culture, but rather portrays residents of Lewiston, ME as racists.
Inused in a lesson plan on Islam, it features Muslim Brotherhood supporter Ingrid Mattson, who compares Christian Evangelist Franklin Graham with Al-Aqaeda, as he spoke about the Koran being violent and urging Muslims to kill non Muslims, which it does over 109 times. Mattson was also president of the largest Muslim Brotherhood organization here in America, the Islamic Society of North America. Speaking of ISNA, students can click on their link and be taken to their website, which is filled with other Muslim Brotherhood group links.
Looking through the Tennessee State Standards regarding the Social Studies curriculum, which, as mentioned above has been disproportionate to the study of other religions, but is also non-factual, and misleading regarding the Muslim prophet Muhammad. Painting a picture of this prophet to be a normal, religious man is deceitful, as described in hadiths, Muhammad married a 6 year old, and consummated their relationship at 9. Why would we teach students about a pedophile in a positive light?
In history, as wars were fought and lives were lost, the enemy was clearly defined and recognized. Today, that enemy is disguised in many ways, often leading to millions of people unknowingly aiding, supporting and defending them. The line between good and evil is blurred now more than ever.
Unfortunately, one of the first casualties of this new war is our faith institutions. Accepting, and promoting the beliefs of Islam has diminished the ability for congregants to understand Islam is an enemy. Instead, by allowing Imams to compare Jesus to Muhammad, and the bible to the Koran, faithful Christians believe they must accept and tolerate or be labeled a hater, bigot or islamophobe.
This is the foundation for one of today’s current controversial issues..refugees and immigration. What should be a debate solely based on the United States Constitution, and our own laws is now an emotional, religious one. Muslim organizations, specifically the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) have continued their relationship with the U.S Conference of Catholic Bishops, (USCCB) which is clearly a match made in hell, pushing forward the agenda of Islamists to fulfill their global caliphate.
Once again using diversity as the guise to counter President Trumps reduction of refugees, several bishops issued this joint statement “ Further reductions in the number of refugees allowed to seek freedom in the United States would be wholly counter to our values as a nation of immigrants”. It further reads “America welcomes refugees, that is who we are, that is what we do. Such reductions would undermine America’s leadership role as a global champion and protector of religious freedom and human rights”.
Equating accepting refugees as the Christian thing to do is an emotional response to a political decision, and we must not intertwine the two. We cannot use religion as a base to make policy. Faith leaders are blurring the line, which in turn promotes the Islamists agenda, where there is no separation of mosque and state. Whether knowingly or with ignorance, the very highest Catholic leaders are choosing to do business with those that mock them in their own documents.
They have one goal. The return of an Islamic Caliphate: One god, One religion, and one government. The notion any men of true faith would consider Islam to be peaceful, or willing to co-exist is frightening, but according to Bishop Mitchell T. Rozanski of Springfield, Massachusetts who in 2016 stated “As the national conversation around Islam grows increasingly fraught, coarse and driven by fear and often willful misinformation, the Catholic Church must help to model real dialogue and good will,” said Bishop Rozanski. “Our current dialogues have advanced the goals of greater understanding, mutual esteem and collaboration between Muslims and Catholics, and the members have established lasting ties of friendship and a deep sense of trust.”
Fear and willful misinformation? Muslims assaulting the beliefs of millions of Christians throughout the United States by insisting Allah is the same god, is willful misinformation. Knowing our leaders trust the enemy is the fear.
The profession of faith in the Catholic church in part states:
I believe in one Lord Jesus Christ, the Only Begotten Son of God,
born of the Father before all ages. God from God, Light from Light,
true God from true God, begotten, not made, consubstantial with the Father;
through him all things were made. For us men and for our salvation
he came down from heaven, and by the Holy Spirit
was incarnate of the Virgin Mary, and became man.
In chapter VII page 87 of the Islamic Methodology of Dawa (Methodology of Dawah) it states:
“The Christian community of America will need a special approach to make them understand their misguided concept about Jesus (PBUH). Prophet Jesus (PBUH) was also a messenger of God, as others were. He was born without a father as a miracle of God. There is nothing spectacular in it, if we believe in God, in His absolute power and in His total control over the natural phenomenon. He can create anything just by ordering “Be” and “it is done.” He created Jesus without a father. He created Adam without a father or a mother, and Eve without a mother. They do not ascribe the attributes of God to either one of them. How then, can they profess Jesus to be the Son of God. It is illogical and quite absurd. Jesus was a Prophet and a man. He had all the human needs and weaknesses. He ate food for his existence, slept for rest and did all the other things a human being needs for his survival. By their misconstrued conception innovated by St. Paul, Christians have made Jesus (PBUH) into a “Human-God.” This is clear idolatry. Making partners with God is a sin. He will never forgive this sin”
How does one gain a “deep sense of trust” from those whose writings reveal their true feelings and intent? How can Bishops believe that have formed “lasting ties of friendship” with Muslims when their doctrine, their holy book the Quran has at least 14 verses that a Muslim is not the friend of a Kafir (non- believer)
Sura 5:51 O ye who believe! Take not the Jews and the Christians for friends. They are friends one to another. He among you who taketh them for friends is (one) of them.
One of the Hadiths, the traditions of Mohammed’s life states:
“May Allah curse the Jews and the Christians . . . for they make places of worship out of the prophet’s graves”
The only willful misinformation comes from the mouths of the Islamists which is known as Taqiyyah, the art of deception, permissible in Islamic law. Perhaps leaders of all faiths should trust and believe those in their own flock before embracing the enemy.
Catholics and Christians need to understand, with the continued push to allow Muslim refugees to come to America is the Hijra. In order to bring about the global caliphate, the population of Muslims must be in great numbers, and allowing the onslaught of refugees does exactly that.
As county commissioners across the state clean up the divisive mess created by our Governor, we are seeing just who truly represents the people and our Constitution.
More and more counties have fortunately made the decision to do what is right by Tennesseans by voting for resolutions that reject funding refugees, and affirm our rights to bear arms. It should be a no brainer. We as Tennesseans have a right to choose who we financially support, such as our homeless veterans, our disabled citizens and children and families in poverty.
Unfortunately, many have used that argument to attack people personally, even diminishing their Christianity, to make them feel less holy if they reject refugees. It is not a religious debate. Supporting taking care of our own, in no way lessens our duties or religious values, but that is the only argument they have. What it is about is upholding our Constitution, and supporting those elected officials that stand up for it.
The same holds true for the second amendment. Thank goodness we have sheriffs leading our counties against those who think gun control is the answer. The word to pay attention to is control. While Tennessee has not passed a red flag law, the mere fact it has even been proposed should send every Tennessean to the halls of our legislative buildings to demand our rights be protected. Never, in most of our lifetimes, has our Constitution been more trampled on by those looking to fundamentally change our country under the guise of being conservative.
The battles aren’t over though, as many counties are still debating these two issues. Don’t fall asleep now folks. We must continue to call and write our representatives on local and state levels to let them know that just because the can has been kicked down the road, we have not forgotten. There are many counties who will be holding meetings over the next few weeks to vote on these resolutions. Our voices must be heard louder than those who support all that is wrong. We cannot let them make the narrative. Our elected officials shall not use religion as its guide, but rather the Constitution.
Attend the meetings and be heard. It is up to us, and if we choose to be silent or stay at home, we will only have ourselves to blame for the very worst that is yet to come.
These are the faces that groups like the Tennessee Immigrant and Refugee Rights Coalition advocate for on a daily basis. Illegal criminal aliens, that rape, murder and rob.
They want to Abolish law enforcement, those who stand the line between good and evil. Without them, we will descend into chaos and destruction. TIRRC is demanding the dismantling of our police.
TIRRC also promotes criminal justice reform. Emptying our prisons, lessening bail amounts, and pushing for sanctuary for societies worst.
These are the issues the Tennessee Immigrant and Refugee Rights Coalition fight for every day. They are against every fiber of decency, safety and normalcy we know. These are the same people that chastise and label us haters, bigots or racists. The very same individuals that demand we change our laws to accommodate the lawless. The same individuals that demand rights for those who should have none. They hate our Constitution yet hide behind it every day. They hate you for your beliefs, yet insist you tolerate theirs.
it is time to fight back, but not like we always have. We must use the same tactics, whether we like it or not. Our voices must rise above theirs, and our demands must be stronger. We are the people, not them. We are what makes America great, not them.
But most of all, they are the haters.. not us.
For Tennessee county commissioners and mayors, making a decision regarding resettling refugees in their districts has turned into a more difficult one thanks to the misleading information being given to them by leftist, progressive organizations. It should not matter if they are Democrats or Republicans, this is a matter of state sovereignty and the cost of a federal program being forced on their residents. Groups such as the Tennessee Immigrant and Refugee Rights Coalition, (TIRRC), Catholic Charities, and Indivisible, are spreading false, emotional information rather than facts. Did it ever occur to the county commissioners and mayors, these organizations all have the same end goal of open borders and a drastic demographic change that will eventually replace conservatives in office?
Has it also ever occurred to the county commissioners organization representatives, like Holly Johnson, who has been busy visiting their offices, have a stake in this game as she makes money for every refugee CC resettles? As you can see from a 2017 tax form, Catholic Charities is a multi million dollar organization whose executive officers make over $115,000 per year.
So much for their argument it’s all about saving refugees. It’s all about the money.
Then there is the Tennessee Immigrant and Refugee Rights Coaltion (TIRRC). While they are not quite as wealthy, co executive director Stephanie Teatro makes over $60,000 as of 2017. TIRRC is all about open borders and abolishing ICE, the law enforcement agency responsible for arresting and deporting those here illegally. TIRRC , for the last several years has been the recipient of a grant from well known radical philanthropist George Soros, whose goal is to destroy America as we know it.
“Because of y’alls leadership, I think we’re going to get criminal justice reform,” he said, adding: “We can empty our jails in the same way that some other states have done. I know we can do that.” Says Gov Bill Lee as he and the Senate’s Republicans gathered in Crossville in Oct 2019 to outline their 2020 priorities.
“It isn’t going to be easy to get that done,” he said. “We have to be creative and innovative and disruptive and challenge the way we’ve been doing things forever.”
Part of Criminal Justice “Reform” is the release of offenders to a parole or probation status. In Tennessee it is known as “community supervision” with former prisoners labeled “clients” rather than what they are..parolees and probationers. In the last 6 months criminals who should have remained in prison or jail, have been released which in turn, they have committed murders.
Michael D. Mosley – In May of 2015, Mosley was arrested for a stabbing a man in the stomach for which he was found guilty. In October 2018, he was charged with domestic assault after repeatedly slamming a female relatives head into a wall several times resulting in bodily injury. On December 5, 2018, he was charged with viciously punching a woman in a Walmart store “over and over again.” It appears that he was arrested for the December 2018 incident on November 5 2019 and was released on $5,000 bond. Despite the previous conviction for violent assault, Mosley was released after serving minimal time incarcerated. Mosley has been arrested for the stabbing deaths of Clayton Beathard, and Paul Trapeni III. Mosley was on probation at the time he stabbed and killed those 2 young men.
Michael Lee Cummins From the news report in Sumner County Tenn. (WTVF) —” Three days after the ‘deadliest homicide event in Tennessee in at least 20 years’ new information is being released regarding the suspected killer, Michael Cummins and his probation status. On Saturday, April 27, Michael Cummins allegedly took the lives of seven people, three of which being members of his own family. Now, it has been confirmed that a probation officer was preparing an arrest warrant for Cummins the day before the homicides occurred. The report further stated
“According to District Attorney Ray Whitley, a violation of probation affidavit was filed on Monday, April 22. This affidavit outlined numerous issues with Cummins’ probation. These included missing appointments with his probation officer and not contacting with the probation office. Cummins also reportedly would not comply with the conditions of his probation which required him to receive mental health treatment.”
On December law enforcement authorities were investigating a homicide in the Lakewood Park area in Manchester TN, where a 68 yr old male was found dead. 20 year old Tyler Parker, who was found in the victims car in Oklahoma, has been returned to Coffee County, where he and his female accomplice will be charged with that homicide. Parker, was wanted for violating probation.
This is just a sample of what probationers and parolees do when given the chance to remain free from their prior convictions.
Criminal justice reform is just a fancy way of calling it what is truly is, a sweeping release of convicted criminals because states do not want to continue to spend money on building facilities to house them. Another piece not often mentioned is the underlying ideology that prisons and jails are filled with minorities, which leads to the accusations that the current criminal justice system is racist.
While the fix will not be easy, appeasing community leaders by reducing bail or not setting bail at all is not the answer either. As of now, we still live under a system of laws. If you break those laws, consequences must prevail. As it is society is breaking down, and taking law abiding citizens and law enforcement officers with it. If states continue to dismantle the system, we can only expect more chaos and eventually civil unrest.
Emptying jails to prove points, and win votes is not the answer.
How would you feel if hardened prisoners, convicted by juries, and sent to prison to fulfill their sentences were now walking the streets of your neighborhood? Well, if they aren’t yet, they will be soon, so buckle up and be aware. And no, this isn’t just occurring in major cities in liberal states, it’s happening in unlikely areas, including Tennessee.
On December 11 2019, Tennessee Dept of Corrections Commissioner Tony Parker, along with Gov Bill Lee celebrated the groundbreaking of a women’s shelter that would help former female inmates’ transition from prison life. While I believe these programs are helpful, there is an entire slice of this reform that is going unspoken.
“When you look at the root causes of crime, what drives it – addiction and mental health issues – we know the answer to reducing recidivism here in Tennessee is programs like this” Said Parker. First of all, the Commissioner of The Tennessee Dept of Corrections is stating criminals are either mental or on drugs is misleading, as many that deal with criminals (like I did for 20 years) every day know a vast number of criminals are just opportunistic thugs.
While the criminal justice system in the United States is far from perfect, releasing those who have committed crimes of all kinds is not the answer, despite the intentions of Christian organizations who believe criminals can be cured. One such group is the Tennessee based Men of Valor, a group supported by long time former board member Gov. Bill Lee.
Men of Valor is an exceptional organization that has changed many lives and boasts on its website “Men of Valor is committed to winning men in prison to Jesus Christ and discipling them. Our purpose is to equip them to re-enter society as men of integrity – becoming givers to the community rather than takers.” We are all for changing minds and helping people find God, but at what expense must Tennesseans be willing to pay if the program doesn’t work for all those being released, and is it appropriate for all offenders?
In the meantime, while concerned over recidivism rates, Men of Valor and other organizations are offering assistance to inmates, a blanket set of conditions for newly released prisoners has been discovered. Typically, when those who have committed serious crimes have completed a prescribed amount of time, they are often released under the supervision of Parole, with less serious offenders to Probation.
Under Parole or Probation, a former inmate must abide by strict sets of rules and conditions and be supervised by their named Parole or Probation officer. If the released offender breaks those rules and conditions, he is arrested and is sent back to prison. Wait. Read that again. If the released offender breaks those rules and conditions, he is arrested and is sent back to prison. Well, not in Tennessee under Lee’s administration.
As law enforcement officers are being subjected to every kind of harassment, disrespect, assaults and targets on their backs, departments are facing dangerous shortages, and manpower issues. What’s just as serious is the system breaking down around them, leaving their jobs in many cases obsolete. Unfortunately, this includes Parole and Probation. According to sources, Parole officers are not allowed to make arrests based on the violation’s offenders committed, even if it was one of their prescribed conditions. This would include drug possession and, in some cases, weapons. Why? Because in the state of Tennessee, Parole officers are not given powers of arrest. This in turn has empowered former prisoners released under supervision to do whatever they want, including violate their terms of release. If such terms are broken, the Parole officer cannot make the arrest, but rather must obtain a warrant, then request local law enforcement execute it. Many times warrants are not entered into the National Crime Information Center (NCIC) system in a timely matter, giving the former inmate a pass if he/she has contact with police.
Last week, Gov.Bill Lee’s Criminal Justice Reform Task Force released their report, which has many scratching their head, as it is more about release then reformation. Labeling the breaking of their terms and conditions “technical violations” is soft balling the ever growing problem of prisoners failing to follow the rules. From the report it states:
“The data indicated that a large number of individuals are entering prison after a failure on community supervision, often because of technical violations. Nearly 5,000 individuals entered prison from parole, probation, or community corrections in FY2018, representing 39 percent of all admissions for that fiscal year. Between FY2010 and FY2019, the number of revocations for a technical violation increased by 53 percent, while the number of revocations for a new charge decreased by 8 percent. Just over 50 percent of all community supervision revocations in FY2018 were due to a technical violation as defined by the TDOC, up from 38 percent in FY2010. As Tennessee increases the use of community supervision as an alternative to incarceration, consistent and standardized evidenced-based supervision practices are necessary.”
Ya think? If parolees or probationers are only being arrested on technical violations, not new charges, that simply means they are not capable of following rules. If they can’t, follow rules or conditions what makes one think they can follow laws? It does not help, that in Tennessee, Parole and Probation officers have no powers to arrest.
“In 2016, in part seeking to address the growing number of technical violations, Tennessee enacted the Public Safety Act, establishing the use of a graduated sanctions matrix to respond to non-compliant behavior in a swift, certain, and proportional way. However, the data examined demonstrated that graduated sanctions are currently being used inconsistently across the state. Furthermore, the matrix establishes several zero tolerance policies that disproportionately affect individuals with substance use disorders. This zero-tolerance conduct, which results in immediate revocation, includes refusing to submit to a drug screen, testing positive for methamphetamine, or testing positive multiple times for any other type of drug use.”
So, the answer has been to not allow officers to re arrest those who originally were jailed for drug offense but now allow them to use or possess drugs. This can only get worse, as drug users often resort to more violent crimes to feed their addiction.
Coming up in Part 2, a look at some of those former prisoners released under “community supervision” that have committed murders in Tennessee, in the last several months.
