Published

on

Tuesday, the Family Research Council released the following statement about the formation of the Religious Liberty Task Force by the Department of Justice.

“In the wake of the Obama administration, we are witnessing a revival of freedom! Today’s announcement of the creation of a new Religious Liberty Task Force by Attorney General Jeff Sessions is the launch of the next phase of President Trump’s campaign promise to protect the religious freedoms of all Americans. The formation of this task force puts bureaucrats on notice: you will respect the freedom of every American not only to believe but to live according to those beliefs.

“With initiatives such as this, it’s clear that the Trump administration understands the dangers of government actors attempting to quarantine religious beliefs within the walls of a church instead of embracing their historical contributions to America’s public good.

“No American should have to restrict the practice of their faith to within the confines of their place of worship.

Sessions delivered the following comments which outlined his concerns and considerations for the Task Force.

“A dangerous movement, undetected by many, is now challenging and eroding our great tradition of religious freedom. There can be no doubt. This is no little matter. It must be confronted and defeated.

This election, and much that has flowed from it, gives us a rare opportunity to arrest these trends.  Such a reversal will not just be done with electoral victories, but by intellectual victories.

We have gotten to the point where courts have held that morality cannot be a basis for law; where ministers are fearful to affirm, as they understand it, holy writ from the pulpit; and where one group can actively target religious groups by labeling them a “hate group” on the basis of their sincerely held religious beliefs.

This President and this Department of Justice are determined to protect and even advance this magnificent heritage,” said Sessions.

President Obama’s Brother Describes Him as “Ruthless, Cold” In New Interview

His own brother!

Published

on

President Barack Obama’s own half-brother has described him as “cold and ruthless” in a new interview with the New York Post, slamming his younger brother for what he says is a standoffish attitude towards his relatives on his father’s side of the family in Kenya.

Malik Obama is the son of economist academic Barack Obama the senior, who was briefly married to Anne Dunham, a marriage that resulted in the birth of President Obama before the couple’s divorce. Obama Senior would return to Kenya, playing only an intermittent role in his American son’s life. Barack Obama the younger would go on to meet some of his Kenyan relatives in trips to the country when visiting in 1987, later going on to visit them in subsequent trips during his career in the Illinois Senate and as President.

He got rich and became a snob,” said Malik Obama of his brother, speaking with the Post over Skype from his home in Nyang’oma Kogelo, Kenya. “What I saw was he was the kind of person that wants people to worship him. He needs to be worshiped and I don’t do that. I am his older brother so I don’t do that.

Malik Obama has spoken of his poor relationship with his younger brother before, consistently claiming that President Obama has neglected to maintain a relationship with his Kenyan side of the family.

Malik, who is a naturalized citizen of the United States who lives in Kenya, openly endorsed Donald Trump for President in a 2015 development that was somewhat embarrassing to Barack Obama, going on to speak about his conservative views in an interview with Sean Hannity, and his poor relationship with his brother.

Malik Obama recounted one major feud between the brothers during the beginning of Obama’s presidency, in which his younger brother tried to prevent him from starting a foundation called the ‘Barack Obama Foundation,’ in reference to the senior Obama, as opposed to the younger.

We had a big fight on the phone because he was not in support and insisted I shut down the website and not continue with the foundation. He had his reasons but I was not having any of it,” Malik told the Post. “We talked late into the night that night. He threatened to ‘cut me off’ if I continued with the idea.”

Malik Obama confirmed that he’s still a Donald Trump supporter, raising concerns about Joe Biden’s mental acuity and fitness to be President. “I don’t think he’s going to make it. His teeth are falling off,” said Malik of his brother’s former Vice President. “He looks like he’s going to drop dead.

Quite the interesting family feud.
