The LAST WVNN Pints and Politics is October 24th!

Finally, a situation where I can agree with the Freedom From Religion Foundation idiots…

The Freedom From Religion Foundation is a group of awful people, who spend their time attacking local school districts over prayers and invocations before football games and graduations. BUT, for once, I think they got something right….

The Freedom From Religion Foundation sent a letter of complaint to Russellville City Schools after receiving a report that the high school football team chaplain baptized players on the football field.

Mark Heaton, head coach and athletic director, and team Chaplain Tanner Hall posted about the baptisms on social media.

“Three baptized after practice Thursday… Building the Kingdom!” Hall said. “Man I love that God allows me to do what I do! Baptized players today after practice!”

Yeah, that probably shouldn’t be happening right after practice.

They actually make some pretty good points…

FFRF Staff Attorney Andrew Seidel said it is illegal for a public school to “organize, sponsor, or lead religious activity.”

“Such sponsorship of religion is especially problematic in the context of athletics, given the pressure players feel to conform to what coaches expect of them so as not to affect their playing time or lose favor with the coaches,” Seidel said.

Ask yourself this, would you be cool with this if the basketball coach was Mujabar Barack Obama Muhammed and was converting kids to Islam and brought a local Imam in after practice to do it?

Of course you wouldn’t.

Mark Bray is an independent candidate who appears at Democratic events and wants to keep ObamaCare?

AL.com asked Congressman Brooks and his opponent a few questions, 2 things jumped out at me:

1. Mark Bray has been going to Democratic events all year…

Question for Mr. Bray: You have attended several Democratic candidate events during the campaign even though you’re running as an Independent. Should voters take that to mean you would be more likely to work with Democrats in Congress?

Bray: No. They shouldn’t. The Democrats do not have a candidate. My presence at their events is to ensure they know I am on the ballot and how to vote for an independent (avoid straight party voting). The Democrat voters in this district are interested in new ideas and fresh solutions to the gridlock in Washington. They know exactly who I am and for what I stand. They support me in my bid for congress to serve ALL the people of the fifth district. Many of the folks at the Democrat events are independent voters who attend the event because they know I am there. Regarding working in Congress, I will work with any representative that will help me serve the interests of the people of the 5th district.

2/ Bray wants to keep ObamaCare…

Bray: Unfortunately, I believe that the GOP, with control of both houses, will continue to vote for repeal of the ACA and lawsuits toward the Administration. This, of course, means 2 more years of gridlock and nothing valuable to the people coming out of Congress. This is the ultimate outcome of partisan division.

Enjoy your beatdown, Mr Bray…. and take your fruit basket with you.

Oh, you tried to join ISIS? Don’t worry about it, just go home…

What do the 3 American girls who wanted to go to Syria to breed terrorists and the terrorist in Canada who ran down 2 soldiers have in common?

Simple, they were busted trying to join jihad and then were released…

On Monday, a radical convert to Islam in Canada ran down two soldiers in his car, killing one of them. Martin Rouleau Couture, 25, then led police on a chase before his car rolled into a ditch in the town of Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, southeast of Montreal.

He exited the car, and police shot him dead.

Back in July, Couture, too, had tried to join foreign jihad, and Canadian police arrested him on his way to Turkey. But they could not charge him and had to let him go.

[...]

The two families called the FBI. They said they thought the girls were on their way to Turkey.

The agency put out a notice on their passports.

German authorities intercepted the trio, ages 15, 16 and 17, at Frankfurt airport and put them on a plane back to the United States, where they were greeted by FBI agents.

The three girls were questioned and released. Two U.S. officials say they had planned to join militants with ISIS, the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria.

Um… We have a problem here, right?.

Of course the indictment of Speaker Hubbard is political…

Keep in mind, this doesn’t mean that it is not legit.

Here is why:

  1. 2 weeks before an election.
  2. Not all politics are D vs. R. See: Clinton/Obama.
  3. Look at all the leaks from this grand jury, what purpose did that serve if not to damage Hubbard politically?
  4. We already have an individual challenging Hubbard for Speaker of the House.
  5. Rumors of Luther Strange targeting Hubbard in order to damage him for a potential Governor’s race in 2018 are rampant.
  6. This nonsense from the AG’s office.

So let’s stop this garbage…

Will the U.S. ban travel from Ebola countries before other countries ban our travel….

Apparently, in spite of Ebola going airborne, we still won’t stop West African travel

Sessions, a member of House GOP leadership, said he’s still waiting on an effective response from Frieden on whether a travel ban is needed to stop Ebola. After the disease was diagnosed in a Dallas patient, Sessions posed the question to Frieden when they spoke by phone.

In their conversation, Sessions said, Frieden referred him to an article he wrote two weeks prior that criticized the idea of a travel ban.

“I said … ‘That was academic. That was before now,’” Sessions recalled to Ingraham. “They still have not come up with a better answer.”

Sessions has been advocating for a travel ban, along with several other Texas lawmakers — though health experts and the White House have resisted the idea..

These countries have not resisted the idea

Kenya on 10 October announced that it had closed the Suam border crossing (Trans-Nzoia county) with Uganda due to reports of an Ebola-related death in Bukwo district (Uganda). Earlier, the Kenyan authorities on 19 August suspended entry of passengers travelling from and through Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone, excluding health professionals supporting efforts to contain the outbreak and Kenyan citizens.
Cape Verde on 9 October announced that it would now deny entry to non-resident foreigners coming from countries with ‘intense Ebola transmission’ – Sierra Leone, Guinea and Liberia – or who have been to those countries in the previous 30 days.
Mauritius on 8 October banned entry to all travellers who have visited Nigeria, Sierra Leone, Guinea, Liberia, Senegal and Congo (DRC) in the last two months, rather than just citizens of those countries, as was the case previously. The authorities have announced that entry restrictions for travellers from Senegal and Nigeria will be lifted on 10 October and 17 October respectively, if no further cases of Ebola infection are reported.
Seychelles on 8 October suspended entry to travellers who have visited Sierra Leone, Liberia, Guinea-Bissau, Guinea, Nigeria or Congo (DRC) 28 days prior to their journey, with the exception of Seychellois citizens.
Côte d’Ivoire has reopened in early October its borders with Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia.
Equatorial Guinea is denying entry to travellers whose journeys originated in countries affected by Ebola.
Cameroon on 17 September reopened its borders to travellers from Senegal. An 18 August ban remains in place on travel from Nigeria, Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone.
Southern African Development Community (SADC) member states – Angola, Botswana, Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Lesotho, Madagascar, Malawi, Mauritius, Mozambique, Seychelles, South Africa, Swaziland, Tanzania, Zambia and Zimbabwe – have stated that travellers coming from Ebola-affected countries (according to the World Health Organisation, WHO) would be monitored for 21 days and that travel to member countries for any gatherings would be discouraged. The SADC provided no details as to how member countries will carry out the associated screening and follow-up and it is likely that countries will have individual processes. There are also reports that some countries require health documentation for entry. Travellers are advised to contact the embassy or health ministry of their destination country to clarify their individual circumstances and prepare their trips accordingly.
South Sudan has placed a ban on travellers coming from Guinea, Sierra Leone, Liberia or Congo (DRC), or those who have travelled to those countries in the preceding 21 days. According to the health ministry, entry of travellers from Nigeria depends on their travel history in that country and whether they have visited Ebola-affected areas.
Namibia’s foreign ministry on 11 September announced that foreigners travelling from countries affected by Ebola would be prohibited from entering the country.
Gambia on 1 September suspended entry of persons who have visited Guinea, Liberia, Sierra Leone or Nigeria in the 21 days prior to travel. Those travelling indirectly from any of the aforementioned countries to Gambia via another country also come under this measure.
Côte d’Ivoire announced on 23 August that it had closed its land borders with Guinea and Liberia.
Gabon stated on 22 August that it is restricting the issuance of entry visas to travellers from Guinea, Liberia, Sierra Leone and Nigeria on a case-by-case basis.
Rwanda, according to the US Department of State on 22 August, has banned entry to travellers who have visited Guinea, Liberia or Sierra Leone in the 22 days prior to travel.
Senegal on 21 August closed its land border with Guinea, while the country’s sea and air borders will also be closed to vessels and aircraft from Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone.
Chad on 21 August closed its land border with Nigeria at Lake Chad. The country previously reportedly banned the entry of any travellers originating or transiting through Guinea, Liberia, Nigeria or Sierra Leone, with airlines serving the country reportedly rerouting flights.
South Africa on 21 August restricted entry for all non-citizens travelling from Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone. The government subsequently clarified that this was not a blanket ban and could be waived for ‘absolutely essential travel’.
