Target Faces “Buycott,” 41 Million Americans Will Take Business Elsewhere – Target could lose over $1.5 billion annually

Target Faces “Buycott,” 41 Million Americans Will Take Business Elsewhere

“When including one group, don’t expressly exclude another.”

Following Target’s announcement concerning its bathroom policy which would allow people to choose restrooms and changing rooms based on gender identity, people across the country decided to boycott the retail giant.

Now, the Faith Driver Consumer, which represents 41 million Americans that spend roughly $2 trillion annually, has joined the movement and announced a national “buycott” effort to shop at Walmart and nine other alternative brand stores.

In a statement released by FDC’s founder Chris Stone, the organization pointed out that while Target was attempting to be inclusive of an incredibly small minority, they ended up excluding vastly more.

“There’s a critical business lesson to be learned with Target’s recent decision: When including one group, don’t expressly exclude another,” said Stone. “In its statement explaining why it is allowing men in women’s bathrooms and changing rooms, Target pointed out that inclusivity is at its core, and that everyone deserves to be protected equally. However, hundreds of thousands of consumers around the country are expressing frustration because they specifically feel excluded by Target’s actions and, more importantly, unprotected and unsafe in Target stores.”

Stone went on to explain that, while boycotts are great at sending a message, they ultimately hurt the consumer as well. As an alternative he proposes a “buycott,” where dissatisfied consumers shop at Target’s rivals instead.

Stone continued, “They have reacted by signing up to boycott the retailer. Our question to consumers is: So you’ve decided to #BoycottTarget, now what? We believe a BUYcott offers consumers what they actually need and want. If you are unsatisfied with Target, the most effective way forward is a BUYcott—actively doing business with another brand that is a better fit for you. And in this case, that better fit is arch-rival Walmart.”

The FDC lists the following stores as potential options in the “buycott” of Target:

  1. Hobby Lobby:  57/100 [My personal choice]
  2. Walmart:  51/100
  3. Aldi:  47/100
  4. Academy Sports:  46/100
  5. Cabela’s:  46/100
  6. Toys”R”Us:  45/100
  7. Bed, Bath, & Beyond:  44/100
  8. Dick’s Sporting Goods:  42/100
  9. Publix:  40/100
  10. Trader Joe’s:  40/100

TARGET STOCKS SLIDE AFTER ONE MILLION BOYCOTT RETAILER OVER TRANSGENDERED POLICY

Target Stocks Slide After One Million Boycott Retailer Over Transgendered Policy

 

Target could lose over $1.5 billion annually

April 29, 2016 by Kit Daniels

 

Target’s stock price has plummeted after over one million people boycotted the retailer over its transgendered bathroom stance.

target-stock3

The company’s stock dropped from $83.98 per share on April 19, when Target announced its new policy, to around $81.33 on April 28 when the petition hit one million signatures.

Target’s new policy allows “transgender team members and guests to use the restroom or fitting room facility that corresponds with their gender identity,” the retailer stated in a press release which sparked nationwide condemnation.

“Target’s policy is exactly how sexual predators get access to their victims, and with Target publicly boasting that men can enter women’s bathrooms, where do you think predators are going to go?” The petition drafted by the American Family Association states. “Clearly, Target’s dangerous new policy poses a danger to wives and daughters.”

“We think many customers will agree.”

It certainly appears so, but just how bad will Target’s bathroom policy hurt the company’s bottom line?

Given that the average Target customer spends $62 per trip, according to credit card records, and that the customer conservatively visits the retailer twice per month, a boycott of one million people will likely cost the retailer $1.5 billion annually and perhaps even more.

“We should also consider that most people who decide to move their business from Target to some other retailer will likely never sign a petition,” Mark West with the Patriot Post reported. “They’ll simply leave Target in disgust as they see a company that has abandoned common sense values.”

“So it’s not far fetched to conclude that at the end of the day, the total financial impact to Target will be $5-10 billion in lost revenue annually, approximately 10% of its annual sales.”

RUN TRUMP RUN – YOU ARE ALMOST THERE!

knight 2016-04-27T231522Z_1714266404_GF10000398075_RTRMADP_3_USA-ELECTION-TRUMP

I for one am honored to be attacked among those such as Roger Stone. I am honored also in past articles to have been such a good writer that they (the establishment thug writers) believed me to be paid personally by Donald J. Trump. A Breitbart writer called that one. I am wondering when and where I can turn my time card into the Trump office? Laugh out loud….there is no pay….I do it because I love the land I live in and want to restore her for my children and grandchildren. And selfishly….myself.

In fact, if you are writing and not on the establishment list yet….you need to be writing more factually!

Go Trump go – run as fast as you can and cross the finish line!

TRUMP TRIGGERS HATERS OF FREE SPEECH

Violent Latinos Arrested During Anti-Trump Rally…

Angry Mexican and South American Latino activists took to the streets last night to promote the culture of violence and anger that exists within their community.  Proudly waving the Mexican flag the anti-American domestic terrorists created mayhem.

costa mesa protest 3

Under the guise of an anti-Trump rally, the Latino terrorists destroyed a police car, attacked bystanders, and injured some of the attendees from the Donald Trump rally in Costa Mesa earlier in the evening.

17 people were arrested and most of the cultural Marxists within the mainstream media were quick to shift blame toward Donald Trump for the bloodshed.

LA TIMES:  […]  “I’m protesting because I want equal rights for everybody, and I want peaceful protest,” said 19-year-old Daniel Lujan, one of hundreds in a crowd that appeared to be mostly Latinos in their late teens and 20s.

“I knew this was going to happen,” Lujan added. “It was going to be a riot. He deserves what he gets.”

Video footage showed some anti-Trump demonstrators hurling debris at a passing pickup truck. One group of protesters carried benches and blocked the entrance to the 55 Freeway along Newport Boulevard, with some tossing rocks at motorists near the on-ramp.

By 10:15 p.m., the bedlam had largely subsided and Lt. Mark Stichter of the Orange County sheriff’s department said no major injuries were reported.

Costa Mesa police confirmed that 17 people — 10 males and seven females — were arrested on suspicion of unlawful assembly. Details on the ages and names of those arrested were not released.

The violent demonstration was underway after Trump concluded his speech before a crowd of thousands.  (read more)

VIDEO Sheriffs Call for Defying Unconstitutional Gun Control: Feds “The Greatest Threat We Face”

April 29, 2016 by Marc Slavo

 

its-not-the-guns

As the federal government continues in its quest to restrict the rights of gun owners across the country, local law enforcement is stepping up their response.

For many, it is one of a line in the sand against a bevy of agencies based in Washington, and partnering state agencies, who have violated the constitution.

The still-growing Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association (CSPOA), headed by former Sheriff Richard Mack, is standing up to these infringements, and saying no.

Of course, it has the attention of the indoctrinated Big Government folks, who are apt to see a group of law enforcement officials standing up for the rule of law as – what else, a potential threat.

via the Washington Post:

[A] group called the Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association is intent on strictly enforcing their view of the U.S. Constitution … “its ambition is to encourage law enforcement officers to defy laws they decide themselves are illegal.”In essence, they are troubled by the overreach of the federal government in matters concerning guns, taxes and land management, and founder Richard Mack has described the federals as “the greatest threat we face today,” and his association as “the army to set our nation free.”

[…] At the association’s 2014 convention, dozens of sheriffs signed a declaration that they would not tolerate any federal agent who attempted to register firearms, arrest someone or seize property in their counties without their consent.

At a recent training for local police, the CPI reported, Mack declared that “gun control is against the law” and that his goal was to sign up about one-fourth of the nation’s sheriffs to join the association… find a true constitutional sheriff who’ll tell the federal government, ‘You’re not going to abuse citizens anymore.’”

Of course, it is his backbone and conviction that has the system worried – along with his ability to activate what is arguably the most powerful group in the nation at the ground level – the nation’s 3,000 or so sheriffs, who are elected and serve as the highest law enforcement official within the county unit.

Richard Mack, who successfully staved off federal encroachment at the Supreme Court level back in the 90s, described his CSPOA association as “the army to set our nation free.”

The media has been quick to demonize the fiery rhetoric for these constitutional-minded members of law enforcement. But the battle is grounded in sound ideology, and a principle that literally millions of Americans are prepared to fight for.

Last year, a police chief from a tiny East Texas town went on a rant warning President Obama that further attempts to impose gun control would “cause a revolution in this country.” It is entirely possible that this is no exaggeration or bravado:

“Now Mr. Obama, you need to understand what the 2nd Amendment is for. It is not for hunting. It is there for the American people to protect themselves against the criminal element, to protect themselves against terrorists and radical ideology, and it’s also there to protect us against a government that has overreached its power.”

“You are not our potentate, sir. You are our servant. And you were elected to serve and protect us first. And I suggest, sir, since you’re a constitutional expert, that you better review your history on the Constitution and understand that we are a free people. And we are subject to no one other than the almighty God and Jesus Christ the King. And as such, sir, I strongly encourage you to trust the law-abiding American citizen, because we won’t fail you and we won’t let you down. But if you try to disarm us, sir, then you will cause a revolution in this country to occur. So please revise your thinking, because we are not your enemy, the law-abiding gun owner in this country.”

Richard Mack’s case originated from his defiant stand when he was sheriff of Graham County in Arizona and an attempt was made to get local LEOs to perform background checks for the federal government under the Brady Bill. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia led the decision upholding the stand for the 2nd Amendment under the 10th Amendment – marking one of the most constitutionally-sound decisions in recent history.

Mack struck a blow for states’ rights in the 1990s as a sheriff from Graham County, Arizona, when he and a sheriff from Montana challenged the Brady Bill’s interim requirement that local law enforcement agencies perform background checks on gun buyers. The Supreme Court ruled in Mack’s favor, with Justice Antonin Scalia writing the opinion affirming the states’ sovereignty under the 10th Amendment

[…]Mack said “the government was forcing me to participate in a gun control scheme that I knew was unconstitutional. When all law enforcement is forced into that position by state or federal legislators, which one do we side with? And I believe there is a proper way to conduct oneself in knowing the difference between enforcing stupid laws and enforcing the principles of the Constitution.”

“[W]hen all the courts are against you, all the legislators are against you, where else do you go? I believe to the local county sheriff…and if that means standing against the federal government, then so damn be it.”

VIDEO A Slow-Talker And A Homeless Guy Walk Into A Bar… – CO To Prevent Another Cruz STEAL

Natural Born Canadian Cruz Picks Natural Born US Citizen Carly As VP

When the Establishment is finished using Cruz and declares Cruz ineligible they can thank Cruz for bringing Carly along and replacing Cruz

cruz cananda usa

April 28, 2016 by Ann Coulter

 

Apparently, John Kasich and Ted Cruz are at their most appealing when no one is paying attention to them, which, conveniently, is most of the time.

After Cruz won cranky Wisconsin last month — only the fourth actual election he’s won — voters decided to give him a second look. But two seconds after people said, “OK, let’s give this guy a try,” he cratered. You might say a little of Ted Cruz goes a long way. Voters can’t stand Cruz any more than his Senate colleagues can.

Listening to Cruz always makes me feel like I have Asperger’s. He speaks so slowly, my mind wanders between words. As Trump said, there’s a 10-second intermission between sentences. I want to order Cruz’s speeches as Amazon Audibles, just so I can speed them up and see what he’s saying

The guy did go to Harvard Law School, so I keep waiting for the flashes of brilliance, but they never come. Cruz is completely incapable of extemporaneous wit.

Now that Cruz has been mathematically eliminated, he’s adding Carly Fiorina to the ticket. She’s not his “running mate,” but his “limping mate.” It’s an all-around lemon-eating contest.

Voters quickly moved on from Cruz and tried Kasich. But he turned out to be the spitting image of a homeless man. He’s got the slouch, the facial tics, and a strange way of bouncing his head and looking around that makes you want to cross the street to avoid him. It looks like he cuts his own hair, and his suits are Ralph Nader cast-offs. He wolfs down food like a street person, has a hair-trigger temper, and rants about religion in a way that only he can understand.

Kasich is constantly proclaiming that illegals are “made in the image of God,” and denounces the idea of enforcing federal immigration laws, saying: “I don’t think it’s right; I don’t think it’s humane.”

When asked about his decision to expand Medicaid under Obamacare — projected to cost federal taxpayers $50 billion in the first decade — he said: “Now, when you die and get to the, get to the, uh, to the meeting with St. Peter … he’s going to ask you what you did for the poor. Better have a good answer.”

He lectured a crowd of fiscal conservatives on his Obamacare expansion, saying, “Now, I don’t know whether you ever read Matthew 25, but I commend it to you, the end of it, about do you feed the homeless and do you clothe the poor.” He also attributed the law to Chief Justice John Roberts and said, “It’s my money, OK?”

Voters thought they were getting a less attractive version of Mitt Romney with Kasich, but it turns out they’re getting a more televangelist version of Ted Cruz.

They’re also getting a less warm and personable version of Hillary Clinton. Last week, Kasich lashed out at a reporter who asked a perfectly appropriate question, going from boring campaign boilerplate to irritated browbeating in about one second flat. As much as I enjoy watching reporters being berated, this was deranged.

Kasich: Listen, at the end of the day I think the Republican Party wants to pick somebody who actually can win in the fall.”

Reporter: But if you’ve only won Ohio?

Kasich: “Can I finish?”

Reporter: “If you answer the ques–”

Kasich: “I’m answering the question the way I want to answer it. You want to answer it?” (Snatches voice recorder from reporter’s hand.) “Here, let me ask you. What do you think?

When giving a speech to Ohio EPA workers a few years ago, Kasich suddenly went off topic and began shouting about a police officer who had given him a ticket three years earlier. “Have you ever been stopped by a police officer that’s an idiot?” he began. He proceeded to tell the riveting story of his traffic violation to the EPA administrators, yelling about “this idiot! … He’s an IDIOT!”

Based on the dashcam video immediately released by the police, Kasich had been in the wrong, and the officer — you know, “the IDIOT” — was perfectly polite about it.

With Trump it’s exactly the opposite. The more people see of him, the more they like him. The usual pattern is: Trump says something perfectly sensible, the media lie about it, then voters find out the truth and like him more and the media less.

Ironically, it’s Kasich who has been complaining the loudest about the alleged billions of dollars of “free media” Trump has been getting. It turns out not getting “free media” was a godsend for Kasich and Cruz.

Presidential Primaries For 2020 Approved In Colorado House

DENVER (AP)A plan to revive the presidential primaries in Colorado has cleared a big hurdle in the state Legislature.

The state House gave preliminary approval late Thursday night to a bill moving Colorado to a presidential primary for 2020. The proposal comes after widespread complaints about Colorado’s harried presidential caucuses last month.

The measure faces one more formal vote before heading to the Senate.

Presidential primaries in concept have the support of the state’s Democratic and Republican parties. But some lawmakers oppose participation by unaffiliated voters — about 37 percent of all Colorado voters. The measure allows temporary party affiliation, which some say could invite confusion.

The change would cost Colorado about $5 million.

Matthews: Ted Cruz Is Lucifer While ‘John Boehner Is the Angel with Wings and Sword’

April 28, 2016 By Curtis Houck

 

 

Whenever a Republican lawmaker either leaves office, passes away, or trashes a conservative, you can bet that someone in the liberal media will be there to suddenly heap praise on them and MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews was there Thursday night to compared former Speaker of the House John Boehner to “Michael the Archangel” “with wings and sword” versus Ted Cruz as “one in the tail and cloven hooves.”

Matthews dedicated his closing “Let Me Finish” segment to Boehner’s Lucifer comments and couldn’t help but spout off other possible alter egos for Cruz besides Lucifer: “Senator Ted Cruz, Lucifer, the devil, Satan, Beelzebub, the very personage of evil, the leader of the underlife, the chief resident of hell, Lucifer.”

Watch video here

In an observation that’s not exactly a firm reading of the tea leaves, Matthews proclaimed that Cruz is only person“shielding the Republican establishment from its grandest tormenter Donald Trump.” In reality, it’s old guard establishment figures (if that term means anything anymore) that have resigned themselves to a Trump nomination.

Of course, Matthews continued to justify Boehner’s comments by complaining that “this comes after all these years of hellish behavior from the tea party, all these years stretching back to the election of 2010 when the Republican right erupted in this country, beginning its taunting, tormenting, and terrifying of the GOP establishment.”

“Grossly put, it’s between those who believe in conservative government and those who believe in conservative opposition to government,” he added.

Before handing off to All In host Chris Hayes, Matthews blurted out his latest piece of imagery that could result in a handful of readers here needing some mind bleach as he touted the chain-smoking Boehner as an “angel” who“never looked this good”: “John Boehner is the angel with wings and sword. He’s Michael the Archangel in this picture. Cruz is the one in the tail and cloven hooves. Boehner, let’s agree, never looked this good.”

The relevant portion of the transcript from MSNBC’s Hardball on April 28 can be found below.

MSNBC’s Hardball
April 28, 2016
7:58 p.m. Eastern

CHRIS MATTHEWS: Let me finish tonight with the words of former House Speaker John Boehner that are now wafting through the air. “Lucifer in the flesh.” That’s what he called Texas Senator Ted Cruz, Lucifer, the devil, Satan, Beelzebub, the very personage of evil, the leader of the underlife, the chief resident of hell, Lucifer. What more or less can the recent Speaker of the House speak of the man now shielding the Republican establishment from its grandest tormenter Donald Trump? That he is the very being of evil on this Earth, “Lucifer in the flesh.” Well, this comes after all these years of hellish behavior from the tea party, all these years stretching back to the election of 2010 when the Republican right erupted in this country, beginning its taunting, tormenting, and terrifying of the GOP establishment and the man leading that torture is the man John Boehner just branded Beelzebub because it was Ted Cruz who raced over to the House to undermine the leadership there to make governing the House impossible to stymie government by the People’s House every hour of every day and this is the divide right now in the Republican Party. Grossly put, it’s between those who believe in conservative government and those who believe in conservative opposition to government. John Boehner is the angel with wings and sword. He’s Michael the Archangel in this picture. Cruz is the one in the tail and cloven hooves. Boehner, let’s agree, never looked this good.

VIDEO Hillary, Not Trump, Lives In A Bubble – Criminal Hillary Will Change Stance on Gun Control if Elected, ‘Worst Candidate’

 

It’s Hillary, Not Trump, Who Lives In A Bubble

Hillary Trump

April 27, 2016 By Dick Morris and Eileen McGann

 

 

Hillary Clinton has been loudly ranting that Donald Trump doesn’t know anything at all about how ordinary Americans live. She says he just flies his big jet into a venue for a rally and then gets right back on it and flies to his New York penthouse or his Florida mansion.

Talk about the pot calling the kettle black!

Hillary does the same exact thing: she hops on her private jet and goes to one of her two mansions — in New York and Washington, with a combined value of close to $10 million. But she thinks that’s somehow different. She’s morally superior.

Hillary’s hypocritical comments show just how out of touch she is with her own life and her own circumstances. Because if anyone lives in a giant bubble with no clue about what’s going on in the real world, it’s Hillary Clinton. Hillary has no more of a feeling of what living in America is all about than the Queen of England does.

That woman couldn’t find her way out of a paper bag by herself. She’s surrounded by and dependent on fawning aides 24/7. They tell her what to say, what to wear, when and where to color her hair — and even how to find the TV programs she wants to watch, but doesn’t know how to find. Yes, she has no idea how to use a TV and no idea whether she had Wi-Fi. Her aides teach her how to use her iPad, arrange for menus for private dinners, and deliver phone chargers when she needs them. They arrange for her clothes, call to wake her in the morning and print out directions for a certain kind of hairdo she wanted. That’s just some of the things the top level people at the State Dept. did for her. Based on what we’ve seen in her emails, Hillary Clinton is incapable of functioning by herself. She exists in a bubble surrounded by layers and layers of protection against the daily encounters, frustrations, and stress that the rest of us experience. She doesn’t have a clue.

Hillary claims that, unlike Trump, she has been touring the country for a year and ‘listening” to people. But to Hillary, “listening” means bringing in a pre-selected audience to say exactly what she wants to hear while she constantly shakes her head in agreement behind closed doors. She’s spent a year “listening” to people she gathers as stage props to pretend she is popular. She keeps the press out because she doesn’t want them to hear her and catch her in one of her many lies.

Occasionally, she will have a photo-op/pretend agenda to show that she’s just like us. Remember her road trip to Iowa. That was supposed to show that she eschewed expensive jets for a thousand mile car ride. But her car trip was chauffeured by the Secret Service. And when the Lady of the People stopped at Chipotle, she never said hello to a single person and stiffed them on a tip. That’s her idea of being among the everyday people.

Donald Trump doesn’t have to search for sympathetic people to fill up his rallies. Thousands stand on line for hours, usually overflowing into adjoining rooms.

Everything about Hillary is scripted — her talking points, her speeches, her interviews. Nothing about her is natural or uninhabited. There’s no such thing as impromptu in Hillary’s world.

Donald Trump is just the opposite; he’s spontaneous and always comfortable with himself; he doesn’t need anyone to tell him what to do or say. He doesn’t use the teleprompter that Hillary is a slave to. Donald Trump engages people. Hillary Clinton hides from them, using her Secret Service protection to keep people at bay. Everything about her is scripted, planned, poll tested, and politically correct. Trump doesn’t anyone to tell him which way he is headed. He’s his own compass.

It’s Hillary Clinton that lives in a bubble — a big one. Let’s let her stay there.

‘Duck Dynasty’ Star Willie Robertson Says Hillary Clinton Will Change Stance on Gun Control if Elected, Calls Her ‘Worst Candidate’

April 29, 2016 By Leah Marieann Klett

 

“Duck Dynasty” star Willie Robertson has said he believes Democratic presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton will change her views on gun control laws if elected to office.

When asked to discuss Clinton’s stance regarding gun manufactures being held accountable by victims of gun violence during a recent interview with Fox News, Robertson said, “She’ll change. She moves back and forth according to where she is at. It’s true, I’ve seen it over and over.”

The CEO of Duck Commander contended, “Guns are vital for us, for hunting, for our protection, and so yeah I am pro-Second Amendment and not gonna get off that and I think our country is based on that.”

The Louisiana native added with a laugh, “I’m happy to keep preaching that message. It works well where I’m from.”

Robertson, who said Clinton is a worse presidential candidate now than in 2008, asserted that Republican frontrunner Donald Trump will likely win it all in November.

“I think Trump’s got it, I think Hillary’s a bad candidate. She was a bad candidate in ’08 and she’s even worse now…I think Mr. Trump is going to prevail.”

As earlier reported, the reality star, who is also an outspoken social conservative, officially endorsed Trump back in January.

“Mr. Trump is a real leader,” Robertson said in a press release. “He represents success and strength, two attributes our country needs. Like me, he is a successful businessman and family man and I endorse his candidacy for President of the United States.”

He also praised the billionaire businessman’s views on the Second Amendment and told Fox how much hunting impacted his family: “Pretty much everything! It is our livelihood; it is what we enjoy,” he said. “It is our hobby and our job, so I think anytime you get to do a job that is also your hobby well I think that’s what most of us want to pull off.”

Robertson joined the Fox News Channel on April 4, hosting a Fox News Radio podcast, aptly titled The Willie Robertson Podcast. As a paid contributor, Robertson also makes appearances across the cable channel’s programming.

USA Dept Of Education Promotes Islam in classroom to stop bullying of Muslims…NOT BY MUSLIMS

islam takeover

APRIL 27, 2016  BY

 

Isn’t this unconstitutional? Wasn’t there a decades-long struggle to get Christianity out of public school classrooms? Now what had been accepted norms for the separation of religion from public school education are out the window. This initiative to introduce Islam into classroom teaching is based on spurious claims that Muslim students are bullied, when actual FBI statistics show that incidents against Jews are far more common.

“Department Of Education Encourages Islam In Classrooms To Stop Muslim Bullying,” by Diane Palmer, Parent Herald, April 27, 2016 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):

The U.S. Department of Education calls educators to include Islam in the curriculum to address the bullying of Muslim students.

The Department of Education (DOE) in the U.S. encouraged educators to be more responsible in protecting Muslim students from bullying by teaching Islam in class. Many people rejected the demands of the DOE’s instructions by saying that it is inappropriate to bring up religion in class.

The DOE posted instructions on their website urging teachers to include Islam in classroom discussions. Educators are encouraged to incorporate experiences of Muslim people into the curriculum through current events, social studies and children’s literature.

The alleged bullying is said to be largely based on the lack of information about the religion and the tendency to associate Islam with terrorism. Although no firm statistics show how often Muslim students are bullied, activists claim that the numbers became higher after the attacks of 9/11, according to Huffington Post.

A 2010 survey of 57 Muslim teenagers aged 11 to 18 reported being called a name because of their faith. About 80 percent of the respondents also said they have been called a ‘terrorist’.

DOE cites an increase in incidents targeting the Muslim community due to the 10 incidents that happened nationwide, according to WND. Of the 10 events, two resulted in assaults, three reported the vandalism of mosques, five involved alleged threats and intimidation and only one involved a student inside school.

Parents were also called to educate their kids on how to prevent bullying. Parents were told to teach how to appreciate their peers and make friends across different cultures.

However, many groups rejected the claim of DOE by organizing a Change.org petition drive demanding the department to stop efforts to Islamize children in school. Nowhere in the blog does it talk about incorporating Christian or Judaism into classroom discussions despite far more actual violent attacks on Jews and Christians all over the world, according to Martin Mawyer, president and founder of Christian Action Network….

Can We Defend Liberty Against A Militarized EPA?

shutterstock_8978731

April 28, 2016 by  E. CALVIN BEISNER

 

Did you know that the federal Environmental Protection Agency spends millions of dollars on guns, body armor, camouflage equipment, unmanned aircraft, amphibious assault ships, radar and night-vision gear, and other military-style weaponry and surveillance activities?

You read that right—EPA, not the Army, Navy, Air Force, or Marines.

Why?

Because EPA regulations are so ubiquitous, so onerous, and so contrary to the spirit of our freedom-loving nation that ordinary Americans find themselves facing the decision, over and over again: Do I meekly submit, or do I stand up for my rights?

And if they want to stand up for their rights, how can they?

Few can afford costly lawsuits. Armed resistance, even if permissible “when a long train of abuses and usurpations … evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism” (as America’s Founders stated in the Declaration of Independence, standing in a long line of Christian thinkers about whom I wrote in my doctoral dissertation), rarely succeeds.

SONY DSCYet a few brave Americans have stood up for their rights—mostly, we’re glad to say, in the courts, but sometimes on their own land, challenging EPA’s lawless actions. (And sometimes, as you’ll see in a moment, they have prevailed in the courts!)

In response, rather than reassessing whether it’s violating the Constitution, trampling people’s rights, acting tyrannically, EPA doubles down.

It becomes its own military.

And its militarization is a direct threat to life, liberty, and property—if not yours specifically, certainly other Americans’.

It’s part of President Obama’s plan to “fundamentally transform” America into a nation that our Founding Fathers wouldn’t begin to recognize.

That’s one reason why Cornwall Alliance’s message is so important. We don’t want to see our beloved nation torn by armed resistance. We believe it can be restored to its Constitutional foundations without that.

But that can happen only if the thinking of leaders in Washington and around the country changes, and they then roll back many of EPA’s oppressive regulations.

That change in thinking is our aim.

If EPA didn’t try to regulate so much, it would feel no need to militarize, because patriotic citizens wouldn’t be so tempted to resist.

Just how bad are EPA’s excesses? Most Americans have never heard of them, and few who have know just how outrageous they are.

EPA spends nearly $75 million each year on “criminal” enforcement, including money for 200 “special agents” charged with fighting environmental “crime.”

Each agent costs $216,000 a year in salary, travel, equipment, training, and other expenses. EPA backs them with over 1,000 attorneys, making it one of the country’s largest law firms.

Next to its militarization, EPA’s wasteful spending pales into insignificance.

Sure, it overpays its 16,000 employees, over 70 percent making more than $100,000 a year (totaling $1.1 billion a year) and 75 percent receiving bonuses despite budget cuts and soaring federal debt.

Sure, it wastes hundreds of millions of dollars on high-end office furnishings, sports equipment and “environmental justice” grants to raise awareness of global warming.

But that’s just typical government waste. Obnoxious, irritating, frustrating, but typical. It’s not an existential threat.

Much worse is EPA’s taking on all the characteristics of a despotic regime, flouting laws meant to limit its activities, ready to pound subjects into submission to its rapidly multiplying violations of our God-given, Constitutionally recognized rights.

Let me tell you a quick story to illustrate this on an individual level.

In 2012, Andy Johnson, a Wyoming rancher, after obtaining all necessary state and local permits, dammed a small, intermittent stream on his property to create a stock pond.

In addition to providing constant water for livestock, the pond is an environmental boon, creating new wetlands for fish and wildlife, including waterfowl, a bald eagle, and moose.

It improves water quality, providing a place for suspended solids to settle. Outflowing water is three times cleaner than inflowing. Suspended solids in the nearest navigable waterway downstream—the Green River—are 41 times greater, so the pond is significantly cleaner.

But in January, 2014, EPA accused Johnson of violating the Clean Water Act (CWA) by constructing the dam without federal permission, ordered him to restore the property and prepare a mitigation plan, and threatened him with $37,500 in fines for every day—$1,125,000 per month!—he failed to comply.

Even though the CWA explicitly excludes stock ponds from any requirement for a federal permit!

After over a year of fruitless negotiations, Johnson sued EPA in August. Will he prevail? Time will tell.

Andy Johnson is just one of hundreds of honest, law-abiding, hard-working Americans oppressed by a federal bureaucracy run amok. Although courts sometimes rule in their favor, the cost of defending themselves can still be devastating.

Just how far has Obama’s EPA gone beyond its Constitutional authority?

Far enough to be slapped down, thank God—even by the mostly liberal, Obama-affirming courts—repeatedly.

On June 26, 2015, the Supreme Court set aside EPA’s Mercury and Air Toxics Standard because it failed to meet legal requirements for cost/benefit analysis. For the majority, Justice Scalia wrote, “It is not rational, never mind ‘appropriate’ [as the law requires], to impose billions of dollars of economic costs in return for a few dollars in health or environmental benefits.”

On July 28, 2015, the Washington, D.C., Circuit Court of Appeals ordered EPA to rewrite its 2011 Cross-State Air Pollution Rule because “EPA … required states to reduce pollutants beyond the point necessary to keep downwind states in compliance with the agency’s pollution rules … violat[ing] the Supreme Court’s clear mandate.”

On September 1, 2015, federal district judge Robert Junell voided endangered-species protections for the lesser prairie chicken, finding that EPA failed to consider, as law requires, plans by state wildlife agencies and landowners to reduce threats before listing the animal.

On August 28, 2015, a federal judge in North Dakota blocked EPA’s controversial Waters of the United States (WOTUS) rule hours before it was due to take effect.

Over the past decade, the Supreme Court has limited EPA’s authority over isolated wetlands that do not significantly affect navigable waterways. But Obama’s EPA still attempted to regulate millions of acres not covered by the CWA.

How?

By ignoring the word “navigable.”

Judge Ralph Erickson partially nullified EPA’s action, calling its interpretation of the CWA’s jurisdiction “exceptionally expansive.”

After EPA defiantly announced that it would enforce the regulation anyway outside the 13 states under Erickson’s jurisdiction, the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals made Erickson’s injunction nationwide, finding EPA’s guidelines “at odds” with Supreme Court rulings.

These court rulings are good news! More should follow, though Justice Scalia’s death makes that expectation more tenuous—heightening the need for the Cornwall Alliance to provide vital information to prevent the adoption of bad laws and regulations in the first place.

But these rulings don’t undo damage already done. Individuals and businesses nationwide had already spent hundreds of millions—in some cases, such as power generating companies, even billions—trying to comply with the rules before the courts struck them down.

And that’s part of the strategy of the radical environmentalists who dominate EPA. Even if they suspect courts will strike down a rule, they adopt it expecting that businesses—especially in the energy sector—and their customers will be forced to work toward compliance and bear huge costs in the interim.

For instance, after the Supreme Court struck down EPA’s mercury regulation, the chief EPA air administrator gloated on EPA’s website that it didn’t matter because “the majority of power plants are already in compliance or well on their way” and “we are still on track.”

In short, forget legality, we’ll do everything we can to force our vision on the nation, and if the courts strike down our rules, we’ll have pushed the nation down the road in the meantime.

But maybe, just maybe, such gaming of the system is coming to an end.

The Supreme Court’s stay of implementation and enforcement of EPA’s “Clean Power Plan” is tremendously significant.

It’s the first time in American history that the Supreme Court has granted a stay against a regulation. Ever. That’s momentous.

And while it didn’t by itself strike down the regulation, it raised strong expectations that, whatever lower courts might do, the Supreme Court will strike it down.

Why?

Because the Supreme Court issues stays only if four strict criteria are met:

  1. There’s a “reasonable probability” that four justices will agree to review the case.
  2. There’s a “fair prospect” that five justices will vote to overturn the law, lower-court ruling, or (in this case) regulation.
  3. The court agrees that the parties appealing will suffer “irreparable harm” if the stay is not granted.
  4. Granting the stay serves a public interest.

But that decision only blocks implementation of the “Clean Power Plan” during litigation. It doesn’t strike it down.

And the “fair prospect” that five justice will vote to strike it down got clouded with Justice Scalia’s death.

Why is striking it down so important? Because the “Clean Power Plan” requires the nation as a whole to reduce electric power-plant carbon dioxide emissions by 32 percent by 2030 at an estimated cost of

  • $2.5 Trillion in lost gross domestic product;
  • 500,000 manufacturing jobs and over 45 percent of coal mining jobs;
  • average annual shortfall of 300,000 jobs, with peak shortfall of 1 million; and
  • $7,000 in lost income per person.

At least this time, thanks to last week’s decision, EPA can’t force states and businesses to spend billions of dollars complying in the interim.

But unless we elect a President who will appoint, and a Senate that will confirm, a replacement who is a conservative, textualist, originalist jurist like Scalia—a President and a Senate equally committed to those principles—the liberal justices on the Supreme Court will probably have enough votes to uphold the rule and impose all those costs after all.

And to elect such a President and such a Senate, we need a well-informed electorate.

Do you see why Cornwall’s educational message is so important—far beyond specifically environmental and economic concerns?

Why it’s important to the preservation of American liberty itself?

EPA’s pattern of abuse won’t end until our public servants, from the President and Members of Congress and Supreme Court justices down to the lowliest bureaucrat, recover our Founders’ vision of a government “of the people, by the people, and for the people.” And that won’t happen until the voters, too, recover that vision.

EPA’s abuses won’t end until leaders and voters alike appreciate afresh these truths from God’s Word:

  • That human beings have precedence over all other earthly things (Genesis 1:26; Psalm 8).
  • That human beings have God-given rights to life (Exodus 20:13), liberty (Exodus 21:16; Luke 4:18), and property (Exodus 20:15) that governments are obligated to protect, not violate (Romans 13:1–4).
  • That God calls human beings not to minimize our impact on the earth but to “be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth and subdue it and have dominion over” it (Genesis 1:28)—a godly dominion that enhances its fruitfulness, beauty, and safety (Genesis 2:15), to the glory of God and the benefit of our neighbors.

This godly dominion depends not on people’s staying poor and “in harmony with nature,” but on their becoming prosperous enough to bear the costs of environmental protection.

And their prosperity can grow and continue only on condition of private property rights, entrepreneurship, free trade, limited government, and the rule of law, coupled with abundant, affordable, reliable energy, all of which are undermined by draconian environmental regulations.

But fighting global warming by reducing fossil fuel use—the aim of the “Clean Power Plan” and the international climate agreement negotiated in Paris in December, 2015, and signed by heads of state and other high-ranking officials at the UN headquarters in New York in April, 2016—means trapping the poor in poverty for generations to come, harming both them and the natural environment—all to achieve a 0.17˚C reduction in global average temperature in 2100 if all nations achieve all their commitments (which ain’t gonna happen!).

In contrast, economic prosperity equips people to thrive in any climate, from the Arctic Circle to the Sahara Desert to tropical rainforests, while poverty condemns them to illness, suffering, and premature death even in a tropical paradise.

Relying on the truths of God’s Word and the power of His Spirit, the Cornwall Alliance works to teach these and many more truths to our fellow Christians, the American public, and our representatives in government at local, state, and federal levels.
