Emergency Rooms Swaped with New Covid 19 Cases

Emergency Rooms are being overwhelmed in parts of the nation by new Covid- 19 cases. In Texas hospitals are struggling to cope with the numbers of people coming through their doors.

Seattle is also seeing a new wave of Covid patients, after it was the first Covid- 19 hotspot in the country.  However, medics have warned that people are also turning up for testing who have no symptoms, which is putting undue pressure on the system.

The Sunbelt States are being particularly hard hit at this time with many hospitals struggling to cope.

FIRST SHARIAH LAW – ISLAMIC TRIBUNAL – IN THE USA

Breitbart confirms an Islamic Tribunal operating Shariah Law has begun in Irving, Texas.  CBN News reported  “The new Shariah tribunal in Irving, Texas, is trying to assure Americans they’re not planning to follow the type of Shariah law practiced in Muslim countries. But critics aren’t convinced”.

Breitbart have also confirmed that the four “lawyers” appointed are not members of the judiciary and are therefore practising law without a license in Texas.   Though Shariah Law decisions are said to be “voluntary”, one of the four Texas “judges” Dr. El-badawi, restated several times that participation in the tribunal is voluntary, however, he would not discuss what happens to someone who did not follow their rulings.

Great Britain has already seen the effects of Shariah law in the UK, and the rulings of the tribunals have been detrimental to women especially in divorce and child custody cases, as women have very few rights over Muslim men.  The UK Telegraph reported in August 2011 that “there are growing concerns” that the Sharia courts “are creating a parallel legal system — and one that is developing completely unchecked.” The UK Independent newspaper stated in April 2012 “some Sharia law bodies have been misrepresented by the media as being transparent, voluntary and operating in accordance with human rights and equality legislation. This is not the case. Many Sharia law bodies rule on a range of disputes from domestic violence to child residence all of which should be dealt with by UK courts of law.” Instead, “they operate within a misogynist and patriarchal framework which is incompatible with UK legislation.”

Now this has started in the USA.  The Texas Islamic tribunal website states: “As mentioned earlier, Muslims are bound in iman and Islam to have masajid, mahkamas, al-Mahkama al-Shar’iyya or courts to solve the problems.  Throughout Islamic history there has not been a time that qadis, or judges, and courts did not exist and they cannot go without existing today. Iman and the religion of Islam is based on the creed of Amantu billahi and believes that all deeds of men are recorded and will be brought forward and weighted upon the scales of justice and judged by Allah the Exalted, the Most Just. ”

The tribunal website continues: “The actions of men will be judged based on iman and Islam but not in violation of the laws that govern the land.  It is a must for a healthy society best to respond the people’s needs in a faith based approach and answer problems within that framework…the Islamic Tribunal intends to respond to that need.  Islamic Tribunals decisions have to be fair, just and conforming to legal proceedings at the local, state and federal level and recognized as such by the courts.  This may be incrementally developed by educating ourselves and also the legal professionals in the country, so understandably it may naturally take time to find its way to be commonly accepted…”

The US Center for Security Policy issued a report in 2011 which found that cases in the US courts have already adopted Shariah law principles in some cases, to the detriment of many women and children.  It states “These families came to America for freedom from the discriminatory and cruel laws of Shariah. When our courts then apply Shariah law in the lives of these families, and deny them equal protection, they are betraying the principles on which America was founded.”

FERTILIZER PLANT EXPLODES IN TEXAS LEAVING AT LEAST 15 DEAD

A blast at the West Fertilizer Plant, Texas, has left at least 15 dead, and 160+ injured. The blast was likened to a nuclear bomb exploding and has flattened up to 75 homes.

The plant was around 20 miles north of Waco, and the blast was felt in Dallas 65 miles away. The Mayor of  West said, “We’ve got a lot of people who are hurt, and there’s a lot of people, I’m sure, who aren’t gonna be here tomorrow. We’re going to search for everybody. We’re going to make sure everybody’s accounted for. That’s the most important thing right now.”

Firefighters responded quickly to the blast, however, reports say there are now four firefighters missing in the wreckage.

The chemicals used to make fertilizers are also used in explosives, and has been responsible for disasters in the past, like the AZF plant in Toulouse in 2001.

The blast comes two days before the 20th anniversary of the Waco fire in 1993, where David Koresh and his sect were holed up in a siege with the FBI. About 82 members of the sect and four federal agents died at Waco.

NORTH KOREA POISED TO STRIKE US

In an emergency meeting early Friday morning, Mr. Kim was photographed signing an order directing rocket units on standby to strike the US and South Korean targets at any time. This was prompted after a nuclear-capable US B-2 stealth bomber was part of joint military drills with South Korea hours earlier. The photographs published by the state-run Rodong newspaper included one with a chart labeled “US mainland strike plan” with trajectories of missiles in the vicinity of Hawaii, Washington D.C., Los Angeles, and Austin, Texas.

The official Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) reported Mr. Kim as stating that: In the event of any “reckless” US provocation, North Korean forces should “mercilessly strike the US mainland … military bases in the Pacific, including Hawaii and Guam, and those in South Korea.”

Though North Korea has no proven ability strike the US mainland, Mr Kim said: “The time has come to settle accounts with the US imperialists.”

Two men had an altercation, included firing guns at each other, between the academic building and library at Lone Star College Harris Campus in Houston, Texas, according to its Chancellor, Richard Carpenter. The campus was locked down by police while the situation was assessed and the shooters were in custody. The surrounding Aldine School District’s 4 campuses were also secured during this time.

Texas is a concealed carry state, but Lone Star College is a gun-free zone with a policy which does not allow guns on campus. Even with this policy, witnesses stated that each man drew a pistol, one from his backpack and the other from a jacket.

According to the school spokesman Jed Young, students were caught in the crossfire of two shooters. Of the more than 10,000 students on campus today, 3 people were shot and one woman suffered a heart attack.

There are various reports accounting for the wounded,a maintenance worker who was shot in the leg and innocent victims included a student and a teacher. One of the shooters was reported to be among the injured. The two victims taken to Ben Taub Hospital were reported to have multiple gunshot wounds and were in “relatively serious conditions.” Both were taken into surgery.

The second shooter turned himself in at the hospital after being hunted by tracking dogs in the surrounding woods.

View Blanton Museum of Art in a larger map

The Drepung Loseling Monastery in Atlanta sent 10 monks to create a Sand Mandala Project in the Rapaport Atriun at Blanton Museum of Art on Texas University, at Austin’s campus. This is to be the culminating event of the exhibit of  “Into the Sacred City: Tibetan Buddhist Deities from the Theos Bernard Collection.”

The display included eight rare Tibetan works, which have never been exhibited publicly before, from the University of California, Berkley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive (BAM/PFA). There are five mandalas and three thangkas from the 15th to 20th centuries exploring the art and religion of Tibet.

Today marked the end to the exhibit as well as the work of the monks on the Sand Mandala Project as they performed the dissolution ceremony showing the impermanence of all that exists. Upon its conclusion, half of the sand was given out to those in attendance, followed by a procession to Waller Creek at about 3:30 pm where the other half of the sand mandala was dispersed in the water. The mandala was created for the healing of living beings and the environment.

White House Attempt To Give Millions To Egypt Meets Resistance

On Friday, Congress was notified by the Obama administration that it would be sending $450 million to Egypt.  This $450 million is part of a $1 billion package that Obama had pledged to Egypt in 2011 for debt forgiveness to the United States.

The administration however has met resistance.

The direction of Egypt’s course under the Muslim Brotherhood, its policies, local protests against the American Embassy located in Cairo and how the Obama administration has handled crisis in Islamic regions has left some wondering why the US continues to send aid.

Kay Granger, a Texan Republican who is chairwoman of the House appropriations subcommittee that is responsible for managing foreign aid, said that she would block this aid distribution.

The US relationship with Egypt “has never been under more scrutiny” than it is now.  Granger goes on to say, “I am not convinced of the urgent need for this assistance and I cannot support it at this time”.

However, Hillary Clinton speaking in New York on Friday, indicated that the world should do more in supporting the regions that have experienced the ‘Arab Spring’ uprisings.

This debate comes at a time when Egypt is in an economic crisis.  They are currently facing a $12 billion deficit in their budget.

Bomb threats lead to evacuations at University of Texas, North Dakota State University | Fox News

Bomb threats lead to evacuations at University of Texas, North Dakota State University | Fox News.

The universities of Texas and North Dakota were evacuated earlier today, after a man claiming to be with Al-Qaeda said he had placed bombs all over the campuses.

No bombs have been found in either university. North Dakota State University has now allowed students to return.

The man claimed the bombs would go off in 90 minutes; the deadline passed with nothing happening.

Gunman held after shooting dead two people near Texas campus – Telegraph.

Yet another fatal shooting has happened in America, this time near A & M University campus in College Station, Texas.

A gunman barricaded himself in a house and opened fire, killing two. One of those killed is a police officer. In the shoot-out between the man and police many more were injured, before police shot the man.

With this latest major shooting incident in America, are we seeing these random events – caused by our liberal gun laws? Or is there a spiritual root to these events? Is there an agenda by the demonic to limit American freedom, and push gun control on the masses?

 

The Country of Texas

Subject: July 2013 – The Country of Texas

[If this were to become a reality, Texans would have to cope with an influx of former fellow Americans flooding into their country in the multi-millions. These, in turn, would insist that all south of the border illegals be deported immediately to make room for the newly arrived refugees from B. Hussein’s USSA dictatorship. Texas would become an economic GIANT and a terrific threat to the Hussein dictatorship Bto the north…………… ‘something to think about’ indeed.]

Please note that Texas is the only state with a legal right to secede from the Union. (Reference the Texas-American Annexation Treaty of 1848.)

We Texans love y’all, but we’ll probably have to take action if Barack Obama wins the election. We’ll miss you too.

Here is what can happen:

1: Barack Hussein Obama is President of the United States, and Texas secedes from the Union in summer of 2013.

2: George W. Bush will become the President of the Republic of Texas . You might not think that he talks too pretty, but we haven’t had another terrorist attack, and the economy was fine until the effects of the Democrats lowering the qualifications for home loans came to roost.

So what does Texas have to do to survive as a Republic?

1. NASA is just south of Houston, Texas. We will control the space industry.

2. We refine over 85% of the gasoline in the United States .

3. Defense Industry – we have over 65% of it. The term “Don’t mess with Texas,” will take on a whole new meaning.

4. Oil – we can supply all the oil that the Republic of Texas will need for the next 300 years. What will the other states do? Gee, we don’t know. Why not ask Obama?

5. Natural Gas – again we have all we need, and it’s too bad about those Northern States. John Kerry and Al Gore will have to figure out a way to keep them warm….

6. Computer Industry – we lead the nation in producing computer chips and communications equipment – small companies like Texas Instruments, Dell Computer, EDS, Raytheon, National Semiconductor, Motorola, Intel, AMD, Atmel, Applied Materials, Ball Microconductor, Dallas Semiconductor, Nortel, Alcatel, etc, etc. The list goes on and on.

7. Medical Care – We have the research centers for cancer research, the best burn centers and the top trauma units in the world, as well as other large health centers. The Houston Medical Center alone employs over 65,000 people.

8. We have enough colleges to keep us getting smarter: University of Texas, Texas A&M, Texas Tech, Texas Christian, Rice, SMU, University of Dallas, University of Houston, Baylor, UNT (University of North Texas), Texas Women’s University, etc. Ivy grows better in the South anyway.

9. We have an intelligent and energetic work force, and it isn’t restricted by a bunch of unions. Here in Texas, it’s a “Right to Work” State and therefore, it’s every man and women for themselves. We just go out and get the job done. And if we don’t like the way one company operates, we get a job somewhere else.

10. We have essential control of the paper, plastics, and insurance industries, etc.

11. In case of a foreign invasion, we have the Texas National Guard, the Texas Air National Guard, and several military bases. We don’t have an Army, but since everybody down here has at least six rifles and a pile of ammo, we can raise an Army in 24 hours if we need one. If the situation really gets bad, we can always call the Department of Public Safety and ask them to send over the Texas Rangers.

12. We are totally self-sufficient in beef, poultry, hogs, and several types of grain, fruit and vegetables, and let’s not forget seafood from the Gulf. Also, everybody down here knows how to cook them so that they taste good. Don’t need any food.

13. Three of the ten largest cities in the United States, and twenty-three of the 100 largest cities in the United States are located in Texas. And Texas also has more land than California, New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Massachusetts, Maryland, Rhode Island and Vermont combined.

14. Trade: Three of the ten largest ports in the United States are located in Texas.

15. We also manufacture cars down here, but we don’t need to. You see, nothing rusts, so our vehicles stay beautiful and run well for decades.

This just names a few of the items that will keep the Republic of Texas in good shape. There isn’t a thing out there that we need and don’t have.

Now to the rest of the United States under President Obama: Since you won’t have the refineries to get gas for your cars, only President Obama will be able to drive around in his big 5 mpg SUV. The rest of the United States will have to walk or ride bikes.

You won’t have any TV as the Space Center in Houston will cut off satellite communications. You won’t have any natural gas to heat your homes, but since Mr. Obama has predicted global warming, you will not need the gas as long as you survive the 2000 years it will take to get enough heat from Global Warming.

Signed,
The People of Texas

P.S. This is not a threatening letter – just a note to give you something to think about!
