Obama Regime Celebrates Islamic Holiday On Same Day Muslim Murders Four Marines In Tennessee

White House Celebrates Muslim Holiday On Day Muhammad Murders Four Marines – Breitbart

President Barack Obama sent a celebratory message to Muslims around the world on the White House Twitter account nearly two hours before his first tweet on the subject of four dead Marines killed by an Islamic gunman.

“From my family to yours, Eid Mubarak!” – @POTUS to Muslims celebrating Eid-ul-Fitr,” the White House tweeted. This message was tweeted at 4:48 p.m. according to the White House Twitter feed.

A few minutes before the posting of this article, the White House tweeted a video message, shown below, calling the shooting in Chattanooga, Tennessee, a “heartbreaking circumstance.” Others might call the incident “a terrorist attack.” This message was tweeted at 6:08 p.m. according to the White House Twitter feed.

On Thursday afternoon, Breitbart News reported a claim by the Chattanooga Times Free Press identifying the shooter who killed four Marines in an attack on an armed forces recruiting center in Chattanooga as Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez. It was not clear if this was the man, or if it was his father.

“A U.S. official says the gunman in the shootings in Tennessee has been identified as 24-year-old Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez,” according to the Associated Press.

CNN has also reported the shooter being identified by the FBI as Mohammad Youssuf Abdulazeez, 24. He was killed at the scene.

The incident is being investigated by the FBI terrorism task force.

The president has been criticized this week for a number of insensitive moves regarding the deaths and captivity of Americans. Earlier this week, President Obama remained silent on the death of Kate Steinle, the woman murdered by a previously deported illegal alien, as reported by Breitbart News’ Alex Swoyer.

That same day, Breitbart News’ Jeff Poor reported about the president’s chastisement of CBS White House correspondent Major Garrett over his questioning the president’s negotiations with Iran that left four Americans in captivity in the wake of his nuclear arms agreement.

Woman With Rare And Dangerous Form Of TB May Have Exposed Hundreds In Three U.S. States

Report: Patient With Rare & Dangerous Form Of TB Sent To NIH, May Have Exposed Hundreds In 3 States – Big Government

.

.
An unidentified female patient with an extremely rare and drug-resistant form of tuberculosis is being treated at the National Institutes of Health (NIH), and authorities are reportedly attempting to track down hundreds of people who may have been in contact with her and exposed to the dangerous form tuberculosis.

According to an NBC report, the unidentified woman flew from India to the United States and “traveled to at least three states before she sought treatment from a U.S. doctor.” The patient was reportedly “isolated in a suburban Chicago hospital before she was sent to the NIH.”

“The patient traveled in April from India to the United States through Chicago O’Hare airport,” the CDC said in a statement to NBC. “The patient also spent time in Missouri and Tennessee. Seven weeks after arriving in the United States, the patient sought treatment for and was diagnosed with active TB.”

The CDC said it “will obtain the passenger manifest for that flight from the airline and will begin a contact investigation.” The agency said that though “the risk of getting a contagious disease on an airplane is low, public health officers sometimes need to find and alert travelers who may have been exposed to an ill passenger.”

But the unidentified woman does not have a normal case of tuberculosis.

She has what is known as XDR-TB (extensively drug-resistant tuberculosis), which is so rare and dangerous that the CDC reportedly “got reports of 63 cases between 1993 and 2011″ and “only about a third to half of cases can even be cured.”

Though ordinary TB is “hard to treat and requires, at a minimum, weeks of antibiotics,” XDR-TB “resists the effects of almost all the known TB drugs” and patients sometimes “have to have pockets of infection surgically removed.” In fact, XDR-TB is reportedly “so dangerous that health officials will have to make a concerted effort to warn anyone who may be at risk.”

According to the CDC, “TB bacteria are put into the air when a person with TB disease of the lungs or throat coughs, sneezes, shouts, or sings,” and “these bacteria can float in the air for several hours, depending on the environment. Persons who breathe in the air containing these TB bacteria can become infected.”

The NIH said that “the patient was transferred to the NIA via special air and ground ambulances” and is staying in an isolation room that is “specifically designed for handling patients with respiratory infections, including XDR-TB.” The special isolation rooms reportedly “control air flow to prevent germs from escaping into the rest of the hospital or outside.”

The woman reportedly “may face months or even years of treatment,” and, according to NBC, “the average cost of treating multidrug-resistant TB is $134,000, compared to $17,000 for a normal case.” The cost can even “shoot up to $430,000 for an extensively resistant case.” NBC noted that it is not yet clear at the moment who will pay for the patient’s extensive treatment.

Republican Governor Of Tennessee Signs Bill Prohibiting State Cooperation With Federal Gun Control Laws

TN Gov. Signs Bill Prohibiting State Cooperation with Fed Gun Control Laws – Big Government

.

.
On April 30, Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam (R) signed Senate Bill 1110 – a bill which bars state cooperation with federal gun control laws.

Sponsored by Senator Richard Briggs (R-Dist. 7), SB 1110 “prohibits the use of any public funds, personnel, or property to enforce any federal law or regulation that regulates the ownership, use, or possession of firearms, ammunition, or firearms accessories.”

SB 1110 passed the house by a margin of 74 to 20 and the senate by a margin of 24 to 1.

According to the Tenth Amendment Center, the measure was “originally introduced in the House as HB1341 by Rep. Terri Lynn Weaver.” At that time, Weaver said, “I’m from the cut that there is no need for Washington D.C. to be the end all and be all with regards to the regulatory world. We should respect our 10th Amendment and shift the power back to the states and that’s what House Bill 1341 does.”

What was true for HB 1341 is also true for SB 1110.

This law comes on the heels of another blow to federal gun control signed by Indiana Governor Mike Pence (R) last week. On April 29, Pence signed Senate Bill 433 – a bill that “repeals the prohibition against manufacturing, importing, selling, or possessing a sawed-off shotgun.”

SB 433 addresses the ban on short barreled, modified shotguns and will also present a challenge to the federal government’s “title II firearm” policy requiring registration fees and transfer records each time the firearm changes hands.

Nevada And Tennessee Join 24 Other States Suing To Stop Obama’s Executive Amnesty

Nevada And Tennessee Make It 26 States Suing To Stop Obama’s Amnesty – Townhall

.

.
Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton announced Monday that both Nevada and Tennessee have joined the Lone Star state’s challenge of President Obama’s executive amnesty, bringing the total number of states fighting Obama’s unilateral immigration policies to 26.

“Texas is proud to lead a coalition that now includes a majority of the United States standing up against the President’s rogue actions,” Attorney General Ken Paxton said in a statement. “The momentum against the President’s lawlessness continues to build with Tennessee and Nevada joining the effort to protect our states from the economic and public safety implications of illegal amnesty. As President Obama himself has said numerous times, he lacks the authority to impose amnesty. His actions represent a blatant case of overreach and clear abuse of power.”

U.S. District Judge Andrew Hanen already heard oral arguments in the case January 15th, where Texas argued that Obama’s amnesty would create a new wave of illegal immigration that would burden state governments. “This is the second time they’ve done it in two years,” Texas attorney Andrew Oldham told Hanen. “People think: They’ve done it twice in two years. Maybe they’ll do it again in 2016.”

Obama lawyer Kathleen Hartnett disputed that claim, insisting that new arrivals will not come “on the expectation of receiving deferred action because they will be turned away.” “His policy only applies to people who have been here since 2012,” she said.

Judge Hanen is not likely to buy that administration argument. In a 2013 case, Hanen predicted that Obama’s lax border enforcement policies would lead to a wave of illegal immigration. And that is exactly what happened in 2014.

Texas and the other 25 states are asking Judge Hanen to issue an injunction that would stop Obama from giving out any work permits before the program gets up and running in May.

If Obama’s amnesty does stand it will cost taxpayers billions in tax credits every year.

With Tennessee and Nevada, the full list of 26 states suing Obama over his executive amnesty are: Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Kansas, Louisiana, Maine, Michigan, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah, West Virginia, Wisconsin.

Another Democrat Convicted Of Voter Fraud

Former Bolivar, Tennessee City Council Member Convicted – Knownews

.

.
Prosecutors say former Bolivar City Council member Brenda Woods has been convicted of procuring illegal voters in municipal elections.

Shelby County District Attorney Amy Weirich says in a news release that Woods was found guilty Tuesday in a McNairy County court.

Witnesses said Woods took them to the polls to vote for her in early elections for mayor and city council in May 2009. They said they told Woods about their felony convictions, but she assured them they could still vote.

An investigation showed the three voters had cast ballots illegally because their voting rights had not been restored.

Woods was convicted on the charges in 2010 but was awarded a new trial on appeal two years later. She faces up to six years in prison at sentencing April 11,

Republican Lawmaker Proposes Bill Nullifying Federal Gun Laws In Tennessee

Tennessee Considers Nullifying Federal Gun Laws – Downtrend

Tennessee State Senator Mae Beavers (R – Mt. Juliet) is on a roll this week. Along with 10 co-sponsors, she introduced “The Health Care Freedom and Affordable Care Act Noncompliance Act” to effectively nullify ObamaCare in her state. Now, she’s taking aim at federal gun-control laws.

.

.
Beavers has introduced Senate Bill 1607 to effectively nullify federal gun laws in The Volunteer State. Under the proposed law:

* Any federal enactment or enforcement actions relating to firearms, firearm accessories or ammunition would be void in the state

* Any federal enactment or enforcement action impacting or infringing upon the rights of an individual or entity relative to firearms, firearm accessories or ammunition would be void

* Agents, employees and public officials in the state and its political subdivisions would be prohibited from carrying out federal gun laws

* Any attempt to enforce federal gun laws would be considered a misdemeanor and subsequent attempts would qualify as a felony

The law, if passed, is set to take effect on July 1. Thus, residents of The Volunteer State could see their Second Amendment rights significantly strengthened in less than six months.

Other states, including Missouri, Virginia and Wyoming, have recently considered similar legislation. And Alaska and Kansas have already signed their own Second Amendment protections into law. However, Tennessee’s proposed law appears to be among the strongest out there with the potential for violators to be charged with a felony.

It seems an increasing number of states are fed up with the Obama administration’s gun-grabbing policies. Will Tennessee be the next one to successfully tell the federal government to back off?

Experts Fear Backdoor Unionization At Tennessee Auto Plant

Experts Fear Backdoor Unionization In Tennessee – Washington Free Beacon

A business’ attempt to collaborate with workers may provide an auto union a long-sought foothold in right-to-work Tennessee, which experts suggested could end up hurting employees.

.

United Auto Worker Region 8 director Gary Casteel claimed that a majority of the 2,500 workers at Volkswagen’s Chattanooga manufacturing facility had signed card check forms, which would grant the union exclusive representation rights at the facility.

This wasn’t a typical example of a union organizing: It was the company, not the union, that raised the issue of giving workers a voice in the plant’s operations.

VW, a German company, approached the Tennessee manufacturing plant earlier this month, hinting that it would not receive additional investments if it did not establish an European-model works council to represent employee interests.

“When I toured the Chattanooga plant and spoke with workers, I found little evidence of any job dissatisfaction… all anyone could talk about was the number of applicants and how lucky they felt to have such a good job,” one auto analyst told the Washington Free Beacon on condition of anonymity.

Works councils provide employees with direct representation to management in worker safety and plant operations. They differ from American unions in one respect, according to Lipscomb University economics professor Richard Grant.

“Works councils are meant to be cooperative to help companies head off problems by addressing employee grievances, they’re not adversarial like the American union model,” he said.

VW, which refused to comment for the story, was pressured by IG Metall, its UAW-managed German union, for the work council at the plant, according to an auto industry analyst.

The company could get more than they bargained for, as the UAW has hijacked the process.

While the UAW’s Casteel has touted its presence to media and employees as a “new labor model to the U.S.,” many labor and car experts see it as backdoor unionization.

For example, U.S. labor law prohibits employers from talking to employees directly about workplace conditions and problems during union elections. A works council would cease to function if the UAW decides to pursue an organization drive at the plant. VW would no longer be allowed to address worker issues in that case, according to former National Labor Relations Board member John N. Raudabaugh.

The UAW did not return requests for comment.

“VW is aspiring to this collaborative system and the UAW is wearing this Halloween costume that they don’t have an adversarial history,” he said. “The UAW doesn’t understand this foreign system and the employees haven’t been given the time to gather information to make a decision about the potential negatives.”

The potential negatives are numerous, according to Grant.

One of the reasons that VW’s Tennessee plant has flourished, while the company’s Pennsylvania facility floundered, is because of the former remained free of union ties.

“Automakers were looking for a labor force that was more willing to work and less adversarial – they were freer than the UAW workforce in Michigan,” said Grant, a Tennessee resident and former union member.

“The reason they came here is the better business environment and worker attitude. The big danger is that the UAW will spread to other [local] auto plants and the union ends up holding car companies hostage like they did in Detroit.”

The auto expert said that is a very real possibility if UAW succeeds in hooking the Chattanooga plant.

VW has dedicated millions in resources to expanding operations in countries with terrible track records for workers rights, including China, India, and Russia. The high costs associated with UAW labor contracts could drive jobs overseas.

“VW is [already] planning to build new Audi products in the NAFTA region. If Chattanooga goes UAW, it’s almost certain that VW will follow other automakers and send those new jobs to Mexico,” the analyst said. “That indicates to me that if Chattanooga unionizes it would be unlikely to benefit from future product expansion. So the real loser here wouldn’t be Volkswagen, so much as American workers.”

Unionization may end up hurting workers, but it would help the reeling UAW, according to Glenn Taubman, an attorney with the National Right to Work Legal Defense Foundation.

“They’re a failing union and the only growth in the auto industry is now occurring in right-to-work states, not the traditional union places like Detroit,” he said. “They need to go to places like Tennessee because that’s the only way they’ll survive.”
