"Liberals Can't Deal With A President Who Takes America's Side"

 

"Let me throw down this marker: The West is superior to the rest of the world in every significant way, we should aggressively back our allies over our enemies, and the guiding principle of our foreign policy should always be America’s interests. No apologies. No equivocation. No doubt.

What are your questions?

 

Well, if you're a normal American, you won't have any questions - these truths are self-evident. But if you're a progressive, you're gonna have a little sissy snit fit like so many libs did in the wake of the President’s triumphant Warsaw speech. There’s one thing that always sets them off - uttering the truth/heresy that not only is Western civilization the best and most advanced culture in the history of humanity, but the United States of America is its greatest manifestation."

It appears [what] the Attorney General is saying is that he will only enforce a 'civil rights' law that is meant as an excuse to discriminate; but he won’t enforce longstanding, real civil rights laws like Title IX, Title IX and Section 1557 of the Affordable Care Act," Mara Keisling, executive director of the National Center for Transgender Equality, said in an email sent to NBC News.

Good Analysis - Thanks for the link

 

Too Bad it left out the Part About How Trump is listening to Steve Bannon and the Finatical Religious Right

 

Too Bad it also did not mention how Trump went to Poland and told the World - Americans aren;t crying out for Democracy - Americans are Crying Out For GOD......................Democracy seems to be a Foreign Concept to our New President

 

For those who think the GOP isn;t attempting to use Organized Religion to somehow rationalize their Right-Wing/Alt-right's obsession with shoving Christianity down everyones throat as a means to implement their political agenda - ought to pay more attention to the subtleties like Trumps Speech & things like this.............................................

 

Right-wing news website The Federalist published on Thursday an exclusive transcript of Attorney General Jeff Sessions' speech to the Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) — a conservative Christian law firm that was designated a "hate group" in 2016 by the Southern Poverty Law Center.

 

Jeff Sessions Tells ‘Hate Group’ DOJ Will Issue Religious Freedom Guidance

 

The Justice Department confirmed in an email to NBC News that the transcript was legitimate. ADF did not respond to multiple requests for comment delivered on Wednesday and Thursday. 

 

In his off-camera, closed-door speech about religious freedom delivered Tuesday night, Sessions announced new federal guidance is on the way.

 

"Since he was elected, President Trump has been an unwavering defender of religious liberty," Sessions stated. "The president has also directed me to issue guidance on how to apply federal religious liberty protections. The department is finalizing this guidance, and I will soon issue it."

 

The Justice Department would not comment on the impending guidance.

"The guidance will also help agencies follow the Religious Freedom Restoration Act," Sessions continued in his prepared remarks. "Congress enacted RFRA so that, if the federal government imposes a burden on somebody’s religious practice, it had better have a compelling reason."

 

But after reading the transcript and learning of the Justice Department's plans to create a new federal policy on protecting religious liberties and doubling down on enforcing the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, advocates suggested Sessions was more interested in protecting the right to discriminate than the freedom of religion.

    Donald supporters won't respond, this interesting article is not from far-right news and it is entirely too long for them to read and understand.   

    Another interesting part is that the ban on Laptops is being rolled back as we speak.    That makes one wonder if Donald proceeded via his knee-jerk , I heard about it on Fake News.

How Trump is changing America’s foreign policy

 

During the election, Donald Trump campaigned on an “America first” philosophy — less foreign intervention, fairer trade deals and stronger borders. The Trump administration has made concrete changes on several U.S. policies related to those issues, in some cases reversing President Barack Obama’s signature achievements.
