Liberals now want no sex until partners say the right words to each other.
Here’s a gem from The Daily Caller: “Gillibrand: ‘Yes Means Yes’ Should Go Nationwide.”
New York Democratic Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, one of the most prominent lawmakers fighting campus sexual assault on Capitol Hill, said Monday that controversial affirmative consent laws should be made the standard nationwide.
Gillibrand was speaking as part of an MSNBC-hosted panel event on sexual assault at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York, which is a part of the State University of New York (SUNY) system. During the panel, she praised SUNY’s recent adoption of affirmative consent at the urging of Governor Andrew Cuomo, and was asked whether she thought the standard could potentially be implemented at the national level.
“I definitely have been studying it and looking at it,” she said, according to an account by Capital New York. “I think there’s something there, and I think that is where our debate needs to go.”
Affirmative consent, often known as “only yes means yes,” is a standard which holds that an individual commits sexual assault if they do not receive explicit prior consent for each sexual act they commit with a person. This standard is an alternative to the “no means no” standard that prevails in criminal law, where a rape or sexual assault only occurs if a person explicitly refuses their consent, or is incapacitated and unable to either grant or refuse consent.
The standard is currently required by law at all California colleges receiving state money, and is voluntarily used at several others. Gillibrand didn’t elaborate on how she would attempt to make the policy a national one, but the federal government could likely force the standard on almost all other schools by adding it to the contents of Title IX, the federal law prohibiting sex discrimination at all schools receiving federal funds.
No one needs more evidence the United States has gone insane, but here’s yet another example: A U.S. Senator wants to establish legislation on what people must say before they have sex.
Well, I absolutely agree; I strongly support a law dictating that both partners must stand before an official and say “I do.”
In other words, any sexual contact without a marriage license, and you can freely take the other person to court for rape or sexual assault. I predict this would lead to a massive reduction in rape, assault, “unplanned” pregnancies, abortion, murder-suicide, sexually-transmitted diseases, and a host of other ills.
The funniest thing is that these same people are so quick to say how mean and oppressive God and His Law are, while every single one of His Commandments would be shorter than the preamble to Obamacare, or the Executive Summary of the CROminibus. Talk about oppression!
As recently admitted to by a former CIA employee, Barack Obama is a radical Islamic enemy of America. So for him to bow to a Saudi King or to continue to support one of the most oppressive and fundamentally Islamic regimes on the planet is no surprise.
Now, it would seem that Saudi Arabia is no longer satisfied with simply jailing Christians for the humble act of praying in private. Suddenly the dangerous act of “smuggling” (also known as sharing) a Bible may be punishable by death.
Smuggling is typically a term used with weapons, drugs, and other potentially dangerous contraband.
In a free society, which Saudi Arabia is not, you can’t really consider a Bible to be contraband, can you?
Look around folks…
It is not just Saudi Arabia. The Bible is considered to be dangerous contraband in many countries. I think it is also important to mention that it is not just Barack Obama that bows to these barbarians. Both he and his predecessor are guilty of catering to this regime of pure Islamic hatred.
Heather Clark of Christian News reports:
Recent reports state that officials in the Islamic country of Saudi Arabia have passed a law that may impose the death penalty on Bible smugglers and any others distributing religious materials that are not of the Muslim religion.
“[T]he new law extends to the importing of all illegal drugs and ‘all publications that have a prejudice to any other religious beliefs other than Islam,'” Paul Washer’s HeartCry Missionary Society outlines in a post on their website. “In other words, anyone who attempts to bring Bibles or gospel literature into the country will have all materials confiscated and be imprisoned and sentenced to death.”
It points to an article on the Copts Today website, which notes that “indecent materials and publications” are also included in the customs prohibition.
Reporters have attempted to obtain confirmation of the report from Saudi Arabia’s U.S. Embassy press officer in Washington, but the information has been neither confirmed nor denied.
Of course, they won’t confirm or deny it. They won’t confirm the content of 28 redacted pages from the 9/11 report, either. Leaks have revealed that those 28 pages talk about Saudi Arabia being a state sponsor of the attacks. Representatives in D.C. have called for the truth of these pages to be revealed to the American people, but it will never happen.
How does it make you feel that your President would bow to a man who may have been involved in the terrorist execution of over 3000 Americans? How does it make you feel that George “Dubya” Bush was armed with the same intelligence and chose to ignore it?
So is Saudi Arabia really going to start executing Bible smugglers?
But would it surprise you if the story is true?
If it would, then you simply don’t know the truth of Islam.
Make no mistake. There is a war against Christianity being fought worldwide, and our usurping Muslim-in-Chief is leading the charge.

A judge in New Hampshire’s 4th Circuit Court blasted a school board for “silencing” a concerned parent who exposed an objectionable reading assignment given to his teen daughter.
William Baer was handcuffed and escorted out of a school board meeting May. 6 after refusing to comply with the board’s two-minute rule. He was voicing concern about “Nineteen Minutes,” a book required for his daughter’s high school honors reading class that he compared to a “transcript for a triple-X-rated movie.”
In dismissing charges against Baer, Judge James M. Carroll said the court “does agree with the defendant’s argument that, often in an official meeting or at the court, for that matter, individuals, from time to time, may be disruptive, but the disruptiveness should not be cause for an arrest in the first instance.”
“The sequence of the arrest actions cause pause by the court as to the chilling, if not silencing of a citizen by the state, for actions which do not warrant a criminal arrest nor conviction. The court finds that the actions for ‘order’ by the state do not ‘balance,’ in the facts of this particular case, the speech rights of the defendant.”
Further, the judge ruled that there simply was not evidence to sustain the charges brought by the board against Baer.
The school board had claimed Baer “purposely cause[d] a breach of the peace by disrupting the orderly conduct of business,” but the court said that “no reasonable fact finder could find beyond a reasonable doubt that” Baer’s actions did that.
Secondly, a claim that Baer refused to comply with a lawful order of a peace officer isn’t substantiated, the judge wrote.
“The court questions the constitutionality of the state’s action in the sequence as memorialized by the deposition,” he said.
The last claim by the board that Baer “purposely caused a breach of the peace by disrupting any lawful assembly … without lawful authority” also was without foundation, the ruling said.
The board, the judge confirmed, said the meeting already was completed, and “there was no interruption of the meeting.”
The judge pointed out the focal point of the argument was the assignment to read material “concerning a school shooting, suicide, and, what has been described as, sexually explicit descriptions inappropriate for the defendant’s daughter[‘s] reading.”
The judge said the school failed to follow its own practice of notifying parents of such objectionable material.
“The court does not find the actions of the defendant to be criminal in nature which is necessary in the ordering of restrictions on a citizen’s liberties in First Amendment considerations,” the judge wrote. “The court finds that the defendant’s action never created a breach of peace sustaining a criminal complaint.”
Bear said: “Since my arrest this past May, my life and the lives of my family have been in disarray. After 7-1/2 months of being pursued by the state of New Hampshire, through the Gilford Police Department and school board, I am obviously pleased that all charges have been dismissed. Belknap County Judge James Carroll showed me there still is some justice in our system.”
But he pointed out that the counts were not “dropped” by authorities.
“They were dismissed by a New Hampshire Circuit Court judge after a full hearing. In spite of having months to review the law and the facts, the prosecutor refused to drop the charges or even propose a plea, but rather continued to seek a conviction to justify the state’s violation of my First Amendment right of free speech, and my unlawful arrest,” he said.
“And what about the incident that gave rise to all this? That is, Gilford High School requiring my 9th grade daughter to read material that is unfit to print in virtually any newspaper in the country. If someone were handing out this material right in front of the classroom in which students were reading the text, he would most likely be arrested, prosecuted, and convicted for distribution of pornographic material to a minor. What about a school system which cannot [e]nsure that proper notice be given to parents of a child mandated to read such material due to the school’s ‘oversight?’ What would you think if you found out that last year, when the book was also required reading, the school administration and teacher made the same ‘mistake’ and also failed to provide notice?” he said.
“What about the chilling effect on First Amendment guaranteed speech that these arrests and prosecutions have on our society regardless of the outcome? How many people will avoid speaking publicly knowing they can easily receive the same treatment I did, and likely worse?”
WND reported when Baer’s daughter, Marina, blasted the board:
“I just watched my father get arrested because he broke the two-minute rule at a board of education meeting,” she said. “This just shows you resort to force at the first turn of conflict and I’m appalled.
“I don’t trust you. I haven’t. I honestly don’t feel safe around you people,” she said, before turning away to leave.
A report at BizPacReview by Tom Tillison noted that an official, either with the district or the board, demanded the 14-year-old state her address before she was allowed to speak.
“That a public official can have such a callous attitude toward a child in light of what just happened is hard to believe,” he wrote.
On an earlier video is her father:
Baer was at the board meeting to protest not just the assignment but the district’s failure to notify parents of the book’s objectionable contents.
According to the Laconia Daily Sun, Baer challenged the board to read aloud the controversial portion of “Nineteen Minutes” during the meeting, but school officials refused.
Before speaking, Baer was told he had two minutes to speak.
He spoke beyond the time limit and sat down but then exchanged words with another parent who approved of the book.
“So what is the remedy here?” Baer asked.
The board said it would not take questions on the matter.
“Sir, would you please be respectful of the other people?” a school board member responded.
“Like you’re respectful of my daughter, right? And my children?” he countered.
“Please, be quiet,” admonished the board member.
A police officer then arrived at the scene, instructing Baer to leave with him.
“You are going to arrest me because I violated the two-minute rule?” the father said. “I guess you are going to have to arrest me.”
But Baer received support from other parents.
Sarah Carrignan said, according to the Sun, that she was “‘utterly appalled that this was acceptable.”
“My son should never have had the book in his hand.”
“Nineteen Minutes,” published in 2007 by Jodi Picoult, was described by a reviewer on Good Reads as not having “the artistic writing that Picoult’s earlier novels did.”
“In ‘Nineteen Minutes,’ Picoult told a story – a good one. But the nuance and magic of her earlier writing is gone,” the review said. It’s about, “Peter Houghton, picked on by school mates from the first day of kindergarten, enters Sterling High, and in nineteen minutes kills ten and wounds another nineteen students.”
The reviewer recommended it “for someone desperate for anything to read.”
The FBI has concluded that North Korea played at least a major role in the Sony hack:
Will there be a response from the U.S. government?
The definition of “proportional” remains to be seen.
Parents of wounded infant due to police abuse are burdened with more than $ 1 million in medical bills.
If you remember, the police abused the baby by throwing a flash grenade into the house. A baby was sleeping in the living room and the grenade landed in his bed with him.
And now we have an update from ABC News: “Family of Toddler Injured by SWAT ‘Grenade’ Faces $ 1M in Medical Bills.”
Alecia and Bounkham Phonesavanh never imagined their family would be at the center of a controversy over the militarization of police. But that’s exactly where they found themselves when their toddler was seriously injured by a SWAT team, also leaving them with a $ 1 million medical bill they have no hope of paying.
“They messed up,” Alecia Phonesavanh told ABC News’ “20/20.” “They had a faulty search warrant. They raided the wrong house.”
Since the incident, the toddler has undergone surgeries to repair his face and torso. The Phonesavanh family says they are facing close to $ 1 million in debt from hospital costs. Habersham County officials will not pay the medical bills, citing a “gratuity” law in Georgia that prohibits them from compensating the family.
But the Phonesavanh’s attorney, Mawuli Davis, believes the SWAT team’s actions during and after the raid make it accountable.
“The child was taken into their custody,” says Davis. “Taken from his family, as a result of an injury that was caused by the [sheriff’s department]. It would be our position that they should have to pay, and it is far from a gratuity.”
Under the state’s law, the county government has sovereign immunity from negligence claims against it, and thus the payment would be an illegal “gratuity” to the family.
As the holidays approach, the Phonesavanh family is mired in debt with medical bills they have no hope of paying. “Before this we didn’t owe anybody anything,” says Alecia Phonesavanh. “And now after all this, they have completely financially crippled us.”
Who is responsible for Bou Bou Phonesavanh’s injuries may still be a question for the courts to decide. The Phonesavanh family still has the option to file a civil lawsuit. And a federal investigation is now underway by the office of Sally Yates, U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Georgia.
“As a parent, I can’t imagine the horrible nightmare that this family is enduring,” Yates said in a statement to ABC News. “Now that the state grand jury has declined to return an indictment, we are reviewing the matter and conducting our own investigation.”
If you consider how much debt there is in this country right now, the fact that the Phonesavanh’s were debt free says a great deal about their character. But now that has ended, thanks to a police raid that should never have happened and also should never have blindly used disfiguring weapons.
I hope the family wins big in a civil suit.

The 2015 spending bill contains plenty of goodies for Harry Reid‘s state of Nevada.
The Senate majority leader boasted about the earmarks in a press release before leaving town. “As the 113th Congress comes to a close, Senator Reid ended a successful lame duck session by delivering on a number of priorities to grow Nevada’s economy as we continue our recovery,” the release reads.
Reid secured at least $ 3.84 billion for things such as the protection of public lands, military and EPA building renovations, and wildfire prevention.
The bill gives the state $ 7.85 million to design a new EPA facility and more than $ 110 million for new and renovated military facilities. The National Center for Nuclear Security, which is located in Nevada, gets $ 67 million, and the geothermal energy industry gets $ 55 million. Another $ 50 million goes to address drought conditions. And a whopping $ 3.53 billion goes to the state to fight and prevent wildfires and to restore damage.
The bill also reauthorizes the government to make payments to Nevada counties that lose out on property tax revenue from federally owned land. Last year, the government paid Nevada counties $ 25 million.
And the bill reauthorizes the Travel Promotion Act, which promotes tourism in the United States and helped attract an additional 1.1 million visitors last year.
Finally, the bill prevents a Nevada mountain from being used as a nuclear waste facility by denying the project funding.
Reid is known for his ability to secure earmarks for Nevada, and has relied on that ability to bolster tough reelection campaigns.

(CNBC) Now that many U.S. intelligence and cybersecurity experts have concluded that North Korea was behind the devastating digital attack against Sony, the question is: What can the U.S. government do about it?
If North Korea is conclusively proven to be behind the attack—the matter is still officially under investigation—the United States should respond, private sector and government officials told CNBC. There’s no general agreement, however, on what an effective retaliation would look like. Additionally, experts said any successful measure will need to reach Pyongyang’s well-insulated elite, rather than just harming the already suffering majority.
Senator Mark Kirk (R-IL) is hoping to raise some campaign funds on Sony Picture’s decision not to release “The Interview” after threats from suspected North Korean hackers. Reaction to the his plan on Twitter was, shall we say, mixed.
