Navy Investigates Bible on “Missing Man Table” Tribute
April 9, 2018 by Todd Starnes
The U.S. Navy is investigating complaints lodged by a sailors and Marines about a Bible and a “One Nation under God” placard placed on a POW/MIA table at the U.S. Naval Hospital in Okinawa, Japan.

The Military Religious Freedom Foundation, a radical group that has a history of targeting public displays of Christianity, filed the complaint on behalf of 26 military personnel and civilian staff.

They wrote a seven-page complaint alleging that a Christian Bible was placed on a Prisoner of War/Missing in Action display in the hospital’s public gallery.

“Why is that Bible there,” MRFF president Mikey Weinstein demanded to know in an interview with Stars & Stripes. “Can you imagine if somebody put a Quran there, or the book of Satan, or the Book of Mormon? It’s violates the First Amendment’s Establishment Clause as well as DoD and Navy regulations.”

Rear Adm. Paul D. Pearigen ordered an investigation into the public display at the Navy’s largest overseas hospital, the San Diego Union Tribune reports.

The Military Religious Freedom Foundation also wants the Navy to remove a placard explaining the reason why the Bible is a part of the display.

“The Bible represents the strength gained through faith to sustain those lost from our country, founded one nation under God,” the placard reads.

The MRFF was grossly triggered and offended by the statement – calling it unconstitutional and a “slap in the face to every non-Christian.”

“The statement on the Exhibit’s placard is nothing more than an illegal, unconstitutional proselytization from an extremist, fundamentalist Christian sect,” their attorney wrote. “It ignores all followers of other religions and totally ignores all those who subscribe to no religion – all in blatant violation of DoD and DON regulations.”

However, according to the U.S. Navy the Bible and the placard are on the table for a reason. Click here to read it for yourself.

The white tablecloth draped over the table represents the purity of their response to our country’s call to arms.

The empty chair depicts an unknown face, representing no specific Soldier, Sailor, Airman, or Marine, but all who are not here with us.

The table itself is round to show that our concern for them is never ending.

The Bible represents faith in a higher power and the pledge to our country, founded as one nation under God.

The black napkin stands for the emptiness these warriors have left in the hearts of their families and friends. A Purple Heart medal can be pinned to the napkin.

The single red rose reminds us of their families and loved ones. The red ribbon represents the love of our country, which inspired them to answer the nation’s call.

The yellow candle and its yellow ribbon symbolize the everlasting hope for a joyous reunion with those yet accounted for.

The slices of lemon on the bread plate remind us of their bitter fate.

The salt upon the bread plate represent the tears of their families.

The wine glass, turned upside down, reminds us that our distinguished comrades cannot be with us to drink a toast or join in the festivities of the evening.

Hiram Sasser, general counsel for First Liberty Institute and a former Army Reserve officer, urged the Navy to resist the demands of the militant MRFF.

“The Bible is on the table because it is part of the tradition that predates our current demands for political correctness,” Sasser told the Todd Starnes Radio Show. “When we telegraph to our global military competitors that the mere presence of a Bible mentally destroys some of us, we are doomed.”

So why is the Navy wasting its time to investigate the unfounded allegations made by Mikey Weinstein and his minions?

This is nothing more than a despicable attack by the Military Religious Freedom Foundation on the families of those with a loved one who is missing in action.

It’s time for the Trump Administration’s Pentagon to stop this radical group from bullying military families and desecrating any more Missing Man tables.

Petition · Let’s Stop the Robocall Insanity! · Change.org

Richard Codey started this petition to Ajit.Pai@fcc.gov and 8 others

Let’s stop the minute-to-minute annoyance of unsolicited calls constantly coming through to our mobile phones.

Calls when we are in a meeting, calls when we are with our children, calls when we are having dinner, calls when we are going to bed – when does it end?

Ten a day, then 15, then 20 – it just doesn’t stop.

Join me and sign the petition to pressure the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to require that all phone carriers implement into their networks, free of charge, robocall blocking technology to prevent these calls from ever getting to your mobile phone.

We need the FCC to make the necessary regulatory changes on their end and then to start this mandate of the phone carriers.

Many of the hundreds of millions of calls are originating overseas. Companies and scammers are using computer technology to dial literally millions of numbers a day. With the push of a button millions of calls go out through the network at one time.

Furthermore, they are using “spoofing” technology to have those calls come through to our phones as a local call by showing a local area code to try and fool people into picking up.

It is time for the FCC to require phone carriers to develop and implement technology that can detect when a flood of calls are coming through the networks and prevent those calls from ever making it to your mobile phone.

Please sign the petition here, send this along to your friends and family and make our voices heard! The more that sign, the more the FCC will take notice.

In addition to this petition, please reach out to your congressional representative and United States Senator and let them know you have had enough and that you want them to lend their voice by letting the FCC know the robocall insanity must stop!

You can find your Congressional representative’s contact information here: https://www.house.gov/representatives/find/

You can find your United States Senator’s contact information here: https://www.senate.gov/general/contact_information/senators_cfm.cfm

To file complaints and contact the FCC you can do so here: https://www.fcc.gov/consumers/guides/stop-unwanted-calls-texts-and-faxes

Lets do our part to stop the insane robocalls now!

Please let me know your personal story with these insane Robocalls in the comment section. Thank You

Petition · National Boy Scouts of America: Demand the Boy Scouts of America reinstate the rank of Eagle Scout to Logan Blythe · Change.org

Obama won’t get our guns, despite the fact he will ignore the Constitution of the U.S. and attempt to confiscate them.   We the People are more than willing to take on a final line of defense against our enemies to include an incompetent non-working corrupt government.

New Bill Would Let Cops Enter Your Home Without a Warrant and Kill Your Dog

Joshua Krause
Activist Post http://www.activistpost.com/2015/01/new-bill-would-let-cops-enter-your-home.htmlIn light of recent events, it’s become apparent that the public’s opinion of law enforcement is rapidly falling apart. Technology is partly to blame for giving the average citizen the ability to film police encounters at a moment’s notice, and post these videos on the Internet for the world to see. There’s always been bad cops, but now their antics are being exposed more than ever.

Of course, that’s not even the half of it. The police wouldn’t get any bad exposure if they weren’t caught doing terrible things in the first place. A cursory look through a Facebook group like Copblock will give you page after page of cops being stupid, trigger happy, petty, and negligent (and those are just the links gathered from the last 24…

Not Satire: New NRA Video Endorses Gun Permits For Blind People

The Fifth Column

The Daily Banter – Opinion

Several weeks ago, we covered one of several bizarre new videos released by the National Rifle Association in which a “commentator” pitches one or more ridiculous ideas for how to expand gun rights in the United States. In that video, a hipster commentator, Billy Johnson, made a case for government subsidies for guns, including free ammunition, justifying his plea by suggesting that the government subsidizes healthcare, so why not? Johnson went on to suggest that a right to an education is the same as the right to a firearm, clearly forgetting that guns are intended to hurt or kill living beings, while knowledge is generally intended to help living beings.

At the time, it was difficult to imagine a more absurd video from the group that gave us Wayne LaPierre and pearls of wisdom like “guns make people’s lives better.” But wow, the NRA just…
