Update: Second Religious Liberty Group Criticizes Sen. Mike Lee’s FADA Bill

Published

on

First reported by Big League Politics on March 23, Sen. Mike Lee was rebuked by a religious liberty group for adding a qualifier into a piece of legislation that recognized gay marriage into federal law for the first time.

Lee called the original BLP piece “one of the most irresponsible pieces of reporting that [he had] ever seen.” But he eventually admitted that his bill was in fact the first to recognize non-traditional marriage:

In a new development, Public Advocate of the United States, another religious liberty group sent an email to its supporters criticizing Lee for the same amendment in his bill.

The email subject line was “Religious Liberty DESTROYED.”

“[T]here’s good news and bad news,” the email said.

“The good news is, Senator Mike Lee (R-UT) has introduced the First Amendment Defense Act (S. 2525) in hopes of significantly strengthening Religious Liberty in America,” the email reads.

“The bad new is, Senator Lee allowed Trojan Horse conservatives — like Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and House Speaker Paul Ryan — to hijack and revise the language of this crucial bill,” it continues.

“You see, the original First Amendment Defense Act (FADA) from 2016 prohibits the federal government from discriminating against individuals and institutions that defend Real Marriage between one man and one woman,” Public Advocate wrote. “The newly revised Fake FADA bill (S. 2525) allows the federal government to determine what “real” marriage is. And we both know that’s never good for Traditional Values.”

The email continues to describe that the original language of the bill would prevent government agencies like the IRS from discriminating against individuals, churches, daycares, and various other organizations for holding traditional marriage beliefs.

“But the new Fake FADA bill doesn’t guarantee any of that,” the email says.

The email also implores Public Advocate supporters to oppose the new version of the bill at all costs, for fear of losing ground in the fight for religious liberty.

Liberty Counsel was the first religious liberty organization to pull support from FADA. The organization is an international non-profit public policy and litigation organization focused on religious freedom, sanctity of life, and sanctity of marriage.

“Liberty Counsel supported this bill with the original language,” said Mat Staver, Founder and Chairman of Liberty Counsel. “Now that he has insisted that the language be changed, we will not only withdraw our support but we will actively oppose the bill.”

Hopefully Lee will do the right thing and restore the original language to his bill as pressure mounts from religious freedom groups.

Nielsen: 10,000 of 12,000 Detained Kids Came WITHOUT Their Parents

Published

on

Homeland Security secretary Kirstjen Nielsen revealed Monday that 10,000 of the 12,000 children detained at the border came to the border without parents with him, smacking down the mainstream media narrative that the Trump administration is tearing many families apart out of callous disregard for illegal immigrants.

The illegal immigrant child-detention program that was criticized during the Obama administration is a policy that President Donald Trump is trying to end, pressuring Democrats to get on board with an immigration bill that funds his Wall and creates merit-based immigration among other policy planks.

People were impressed:

WATCH

It is also important to note that Border Patrol separates children from adults if they suspect the children are not actually related to the adults. Why? Because human trafficking is a persistent problem and cartels and other smugglers try to use kids to get more people across the border — or they try to sell the kids into human slavery.

We reported:

San Diego’s chief Border Patrol agent Rodney Scott said Monday that the Border Patrol separates children from the adults they are with if there are concerns that the kids are being human-trafficked.
Scott revealed that oftentimes traffickers “recycle” children in order to get illegal alien grown-ups over the Southern border into the United States.

“OOPS! A media outlet slipped & printed the truth today!,” Ann Coulter declared, showing people that the media is not being forthright and truthful when reporting on the supposed border separation program.

Horowitz Drops Hint That A ‘Grand Jury’ Trial Could Be Coming

Published

on

Inspector general Michael Horowitz revealed Monday that some of the information in his IG report consisted of “Grand Jury” material, thus hinting that some kind of grand jury is involved in analyzing either the Hillary Clinton email scandal or the conduct of FBI officials under James Comey.

Undercover Huber came up with this bombshell catch on Twitter, which is already giving patriots hope that the IG report will not be the end of this process, but that more serious investigations and potentially criminal charges could be coming.

Former FBI director James Comey is the subject of an Inspector General investigation into his well-documented leaking of classified information.

In fact, the FBI — Comey’s old Bureau — made the referral for an investigation to the IG’s office, inspector general Michael Horowitz told Congress Monday.

“We received a referral on that from the FBI. We are handling that referral and we will issue a report when the matter is complete, consistent with the law and rules that are, a report that’s consistent and takes those into account,” Horowitz said in his testimony.

Many people forgot that Comey is under investigation for his leaking. Comey has gone on to a book tour and a post teaching “ethical leadership” at William and Mary.
