    Four Arabic Words You Must Know: Taqiyya, Tawriya, Kitman and Muruna

    Islam Watch reveals how lies and deceptions are integral to Islam:
    Knowing Four Arabic Words May Save Our Civilization from Islamic Takeover
    …Takiyya is defined as dissimulation about ones Muslim identity…
    …Tawriya is defined as concealing, and it could be called “creative lying”…
    …Kitman is characterized by someone telling only part of the truth. The most common example of this is when a Muslim says that jihad really refers to an internal, spiritual struggle…
    …Muruna means using “flexibility” to blend in with the enemy or the surroundings…;

    Facebook Confirms It Will Sponsor Trump’s Republican National Convention

    With Donald Trump all but nominated as the Republican Party’s presidential candidate, Facebook has confirmed to Recode that it will remain a sponsor of the GOP’s July convention in Cleveland. That’s despite an activist group urging tech companies to pull their support for the event, which they characterize as “sponsoring” Trump’s contentious platform.

    It’s also despite public tension between Trump and Facebook fb CEO Mark Zuckerberg, who last month criticized “fearful voices calling for building walls and distancing people they label as others.” Though Zuckerberg did not name Trump, Trump’s campaign staff nonetheless responded to the comments, saying that Zuckerberg’s “attitude would change” if he moved closer to the U.S. border.

    Florida’s DeSantis signs controversial sanctuary cities ban into law

    Florida Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis signed a controversial measure on Friday that blocks localities from becoming sanctuary cities and mandates they cooperate with federal immigration enforcement.

    “I am proud to sign the bill presented to me by the Florida Legislature to uphold the rule of law and ensure that no city or county jurisdiction can get in the way of Florida’s cooperation with our federal partners to enforce immigration law,” DeSantis said in a statement on Friday.

    “This is about public safety, not about politics. We must do everything within our power, and use all the tools available to us, to ensure that our communities are safe.”

    The bill targeted Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detainers — requests by the federal agency for local and state governments not to release immigrants suspected of criminal offenses. States and localities across the nation have ignored these, prompting fierce criticism from the president and earning them the title of “sanctuary jurisdictions”

    The bill narrowly passed the state’s Senate (22-18 vote) and made it through the House with more than a 20-vote margin. “This bill isn’t anti-immigrant and it’s dangerously disingenuous to suggest otherwise,” Rep. Elizabeth Fetterhoff, R-DeLand, reportedly said.

    But groups like the Southern Poverty Law Center opposed the law, with Scott McCoy, the group’s senior policy counsel, reportedly accusing DeSantis of using “racial grievance to drive a wedge between Floridians.”

    It undermines public safety making our towns and cities less safe by requiring local law enforcement to spend less of their time and resources fighting crime in local communities and more on doing the work of federal immigration authorities,” McCoy said.

    The new law will likely face legal challenges as well, attracting more attention to an issue President Trump has brought to the fore by, among other things, harping on the tragic death of Kate Steinle. The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), which issued a travel advisory in response to the law, blasted the measure as “unconstitutional.”

    “The law is anti-immigrant, unconstitutional, inhumane, and hurts our families and communities,” the ACLU of Florida said on Twitter.

    “Should the ACLU and others sue, it would serve up another potential case for the nation’s courts to look at on this issue. Under former Attorney General Jeff Sessions, the Justice Department faced a legal battle after it cut off federal grants to cities that refused to cooperate with immigration enforcement. It also sued the state of California in 2018 over its sanctuary policies.”

    Florida’s law came as President Trump’s administration struggled to meet the demands of a growing migrant crisis in which authorities ran out of time and space for housing illegal immigrants. Trump previously suggested that he would send illegal immigrants to sanctuary cities, allegedly including two South Florida counties — Broward and Palm Beach. The administration later denied it had plans at the time to transfer migrants to those counties.

    Over the rainbow: Pride month symbolizes our brokenness and what we’re missing
    It’s Pride month, so let’s get right to the end of the rainbow, shall we?

    Sadly, it seems the fallacy of “living your truth” has some very real — and too often tragic — consequences. But at least the chicken sandwich makers are on the run like never before, and Democratic presidential candidate Kirsten Gillibrand just made herself into the greatest and not at all awkward “gay rights” meme of all time.

    Which is why Jack Phillips of Colorado, the baker who has already fended off two legal challenges to his right to make up his own damn mind about what mayhem and pornography he is willing to endorse as a product of his labor, is now under assault for a third time. And there will be a fourth. And a fifth. Because “living your truth” requires everyone else to live it as well, even in spite of their own..

    Heck, even the revival of the television game show Card Sharks is making this point. In the premiere episode that just aired, a gay white male is seen ogling and even sinking his claws provocatively into the male model who flips the cards on the set. Can you imagine all the #metoo blowback we would rightfully see if that was a straight white male openly objectifying and putting his paws all over the female model? We’d actually never see it, for that episode would’ve never made it to air.

    But then again, we don’t even know what male and female are anymore, so nevermind.

    God has put His stipulations in place for a reason. The One who created the clitoris, which has no physiological role other than to stimulate pleasure, and put almost 5,000 nerves in the penis for the same reason, is not here to impose an orgasm salary cap. Heck, His first commandment to humanity was to “go forth and multiply.” For all of us except one Jewish girl named Mary, that only occurs the old fashioned way.

    He’s trying to save us from ourselves. From so distorting our form, mutilating our bodies, and wrecking our emotions to the point that we unleash Hell on ourselves and our fellow man.

    Suing the likes of Jack Phillips out of existence isn’t going to cause any of those data points at the beginning of this column to subside one iota. I know from experience. I didn’t have the best father growing up. I thought if I bullied others, took advantage of others, and overachieved, I’d either finally earn his elusive approval or feel whole inside.

    Instead, I grew increasingly hollow. It wasn’t until I knew God as my Father that the real healing began. And it’s not until you know God as your Creator that you’ll truly know your purpose and reason for being.

    In my opinion.

    First Amendment constraints don’t apply to private platforms, Supreme Court affirms
    The case had caused concern for some online speech advocates

    In a case closely watched for its potential implications for social media, the Supreme Court has ruled that a nonprofit running public access channels isn’t bound by governmental constraints on speech.

    The case, which the conservative wing of the court decided in a split 5–4 ruling, centered around a Manhattan-based nonprofit tasked by New York City with operating public access channels in the area. The organization disciplined two producers after a film led to complaints, which the producers argued was a violation of their First Amendment speech rights. The case turned on whether the nonprofit was a “state actor” running a platform governed by First Amendment constraints.
    In a decision written by Justice Brett Kavanaugh, the conservative justices ruled that the First Amendment constraints didn’t apply to the nonprofit, which they considered a private entity. Providing a forum for speech wasn’t enough to become a government actor, the justices ruled.
    Nowhere is the internet or social media discussed in the ruling, but the idea that the decision could be used to penalize social media companies was raised by groups like the Electronic Frontier Foundation. The groups argued that too broad of a decision could prevent other private entities like YouTube and Twitter from managing their platforms by imposing new constraints them. The Internet Association, a trade group, said last year that such a decision could mean the internet “will become less attractive, less safe and less welcoming to the average user.” But today’s decision seems to assuage those concerns.
    The liberal justices on the court, in a dissenting ruling, argued instead that the terms under which the nonprofit ran the channels for the city should have bound it to First Amendment constraints. The nonprofit, Justice Sonia Sotomayor wrote, “stepped into the City’s shoes and thus qualifies as a state actor, subject to the First Amendment like any other.”

    President Trump said in a tweet Monday night that U.S. immigration agents are planning to make mass arrests starting “next week,” an apparent reference to a plan in preparation for months that aims to round up thousands of migrant parents and children in a blitz operation across major U.S. cities.
    “Next week ICE will begin the process of removing the millions of illegal aliens who have illicitly found their way into the United States,” Trump wrote, referring to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. “They will be removed as fast as they come in.”
    Large-scale ICE enforcement operations are typically kept secret to avoid tipping off targets. In 2018, Trump and other senior officials threatened the mayor of Oakland, Calif., with criminal prosecution for alerting city residents that immigration raids were in the works.

    Trump and his senior immigration adviser, Stephen Miller, have been prodding Homeland Security officials to arrest and remove thousands of family members whose deportation orders were expedited by the Justice Department this year as part of a plan known as the “rocket docket.”
    In April, acting ICE director Ronald Vitiello and Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen were ousted after they hesitated to go forward with the plan, expressing concerns about its preparation, effectiveness and the risk of public outrage from images of migrant children being taken into custody or separated from their families.
    Vitiello was replaced at ICE by former FBI and Border Patrol official Mark Morgan, who had impressed the president with statements on cable television in favor of harsh immigration enforcement measures.
    In his first two weeks on the job at ICE, Morgan has said publicly that he plans to beef up interior enforcement and go after families with deportation orders, insisting that the rulings must be carried out to uphold the integrity of the country’s legal system.
    “Our next challenge is going to be interior enforcement,” Morgan told reporters June 4 in Washington. “We will be going after individuals who have gone through due process and who have received final orders of deportation.
    “That will include families,” he said, adding that ICE agents will treat the parents and children they arrest “with compassion and humanity.”

    U.S. officials with knowledge of the preparations have said in recent days that the operation was not imminent, and ICE officials said late Monday night that they were not aware that the president planned to divulge their enforcement plans on Twitter.
    Executing a large-scale operation of the type under discussion requires hundreds — and perhaps thousands — of U.S. agents and supporting law enforcement personnel, as well as weeks of intelligence gathering and planning to verify addresses and locations of individuals targeted for arrest.
    The president’s claim that ICE would be deporting “millions” also was at odds with the reality of the agency’s staffing and budgetary challenges. ICE arrests in the U.S. interior have been declining in recent months because so many agents are busy managing the record surge of migrant families across the southern border with Mexico.
    The family arrest plan has been considered even more sensitive than a typical operation because children are involved, and Homeland Security officials retain significant concerns that families will be inadvertently separated by the operation, especially because parents in some households have deportation orders but their children — some of whom are U.S. citizens — might not. Should adults be arrested without their children because they are at school, day care, summer camp or a friend’s house, it is possible parents could be deported while their children are left behind.
    Supporters of the plan, including Miller, Morgan and ICE Deputy Director Matthew Albence, have argued forcefully that a dramatic and highly publicized operation of this type will send a message to families that are in defiance of deportation orders and could act as a deterrent.
    According to Homeland Security officials, nearly all unauthorized migrants who came to the United States in 2017 in family groups remain present in the country. Some of those families are awaiting adjudication of asylum claims, but administration officials say a growing number are skipping out on court hearings while hoping to live and work in the United States as long as possible.
    Publicizing a future law enforcement operation is unheard of at ICE. Trump administration officials blasted Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf last year for warning immigrants about an impending raid, saying she endangered agents’ safety.
    “The Oakland mayor’s decision to publicize her suspicions about ICE operations further increased that risk for my officers and alerted criminal aliens — making clear that this reckless decision was based on her political agenda with the very federal laws that ICE is sworn to uphold,” then-ICE Deputy Director Thomas D. Homan said at the time.
    Homan later retired, but last week Trump said Homan would return to public service as his “border czar.” On Fox News, Homan later called that announcement “kind of premature” and said he had not decided whether to accept the job.
    Schaaf responded late Monday to the president’s tweet teasing the looming ICE roundups.
    “If you continue to threaten, target and terrorize families in my community . . . and if we receive credible information . . . you already know what our values are in Oakland — and we will unapologetically stand up for those values,” she wrote.

    Acting Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan has decided to pull out from the nomination process to become full-time Defense Secretary after a rocky six-month tenure at the Pentagon.

    President Donald Trump made the announcement Tuesday via Twitter amid news reports that Shanahan, his ex-wife and son were involved in domestic violence incidents in 2010 and 2011. “Acting Secretary of Defense Patrick Shanahan, who has done a wonderful job, has decided not to go forward with his confirmation process so that he can devote more time to his family,” Trump said.

    Trump named Mark Esper, the secretary of the Army and a former Raytheon executive, to take over for Shanahan.

    Shanahan, 56, had been the leading contender to become Defense Secretary since James Mattis stepped down from the job on Dec. 31. The former Boeing executive has the dubious distinction of being the longest serving “Acting Defense Secretary” in the nation’s history.

    His nomination was initially held up because the Defense Department Inspector General had launched an investigation into whether he violated any ethics rules by promoting his longtime former employer while serving in the Trump Administration. After the Pentagon watchdog cleared him, Trump announced his intention to nominate Shanahan to be the next Secretary of Defense on May 9.

    Questions began to swirl a month later, however, when the formal paperwork never made its way to Congress.
