This Woman Was Frisked, Fingerprinted, and Jailed – You’ll Never Guess the Reason Why

REPOSTED FROM SURVIVALJOE.NET
2015-07-07_12-06-11How far will governments go to get “their” money?
Well, one Michigan woman recently discovered that the government will go to great (some would say “ridiculous”) lengths to collect the fees and taxes they levy on citizens.
Here’s the story:
In Kalamazoo, MI, you must pay a $10 annual license to own a dog. (Yes, they actually have a dog license fee.)
Recently, Kalamazoo citizen Becky Rehr forgot to renew her license.
No big deal, right? After all, it was just $10.
Actually, it turned out to be quite a big deal. According to TheBlaze.com:

The misdemeanor charges against a Michigan woman were dropped this week, but the fact that she was arrested and faced a criminal charge for not renewing a $10 dog license has some scratching their heads.
Becky Rehr received several warnings from Kalamazoo county’s animal control office about her failure to renew her 11-year-old dog’s license and was told that if she didn’t do so by May 28, a warrant would be issued for her arrest, the Kalamazoo Gazette reported.
Almost a month later, Rehr stopped by the Kalamazoo County Sheriff’s Office, after receiving her arrest warrant, to show she had renewed her license on June 18. Instead of just presenting her receipt and continuing on her way with her 14-year-old daughter in the car, Rehr was arrested, fingerprinted and placed in a holding cell for several hours before she was released on $100 bond.
“They frisked me and put me in this intake cell with all these inmates in orange jumpsuits,” Rehr told the Gazette of the June 23 incident. “I was pretty nervous.”

One thing is certain: This is not the America our parents grew up in. Governments all across America are trying to regulate and tax everything. And if you don’t comply, the police come knocking to get their pound of flesh.
 

ALERT: Did Muslim Police Chief of Dearborn, Mich. Announce He’ll Enforce Shariah on Christians?

From THE CONSERVATIVE TRIBUNE
Ah, Dearbornistan. It’s the one place in America where the Council on American-Islamic Relations isn’t terribly concerned about the separation of church and state.
Dearborn has one of the largest populations of Muslims in the United States, with an estimated 40 percent of the city’s population being of Arab descent. So, for Ramadan, the police chief announced that he’s going to be enforcing a curfew on all residents — including Christians.
The Islamic holy month of Ramadan requires Muslims to fast from sunrise to sunset, meaning that many food shops are open 24 hours a day to accommodate fasting needs. The city has a curfew in effect during the hours of 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. Monday through Friday, with a slightly later curfew on the weekends.
Dearborn Police Chief Ron Haddad, a Muslim, said that the city’s Muslim parents should be extra careful making sure their children don’t congregate after those hours.
The first meal after sunset, iftar, and the last meal before sunrise, suhur, both take place during those hours. During the holy month, many Muslims will come together for those meals.
“When we find them in curfew violation we take them home the first time,” Haddad told reporters. “And the second time, we give them a ticket.” (H/T Shoebat)
It’s important to note that there are several viable alternative interpretations to what is being done here. On the one hand, the police chief could be reminding Muslims that while they are out during Ramadan, the rules will still apply to them. On the other hand, this could be seen as reminding non-Muslims to be respectful during the holiday. And even another way to interpret what’s happening is that the chief is enforcing curfews to keep Muslim children near their families and at home celebrating the religious meals required during Ramadan, and telling Christians and others to keep out of the way.
This isn’t the first time Shariah law has raised its ugly head in the Michigan city, and it’s not the first time the police chief and his deputy chief have come under fire for seemingly enforcing shariah law. The city arrested Christians for street preaching during a fair in the city and also refused to protect Christians who were being assaulted.
Given the police chief’s history, it’s alarming that he would make these kinds of comments without clarifying exactly what he is enforcing and why. In other words, if there are no sinister motives, he should say so.
Dearborn is also the city where The Home Depot employees receive special training to “better serve their Muslim customers and accommodate the religious sensitivities of their Muslim employees.”
The training was put on by none other than CAIR, the Muslim Brotherhood front group usually seen picketing any slight visited upon the “religion of peace,” perceived or actual.
Just another day in Dearbornistan, the new liberal capital of crazy.

ISIS Message Warns of 71 ‘Trained Soldiers’ in 15 U.S. States, 23 ‘Signed Up for Missions’

FROM PJ MEDIA’S PJ TATLER

A new warning from a purported American jihadist details specific levels of ISIS fighters in the U.S. — as well as targeted states — in the wake of the attack in Garland, Texas.

ISIS’ official operations bulletin as well as their radio station Al-Bayan claimed responsibility for the attack on the “derisive cartoons” competition by Phoenix roommates Elton Simpson and Nadir Soofi. Simpson was flagged by the FBI in 2010 for trying to join jihad in Somalia and more recently for tweeting on behalf of the Islamic State. He tweeted about the attack before it happened and praise for his involvement — and additional oblique threats of attacks in the U.S. — spread quickly among ISIS tweeps.

This new warning — posted on a file-sharing site accompanied by a large ISIS flag — is signed by “Abu Ibrahim Al Ameriki.” It’s not know if this is the same American believed to have joined an Islamic Jihad group in Pakistan several years ago; little is known about that jihadist who bears the same name, but he has done propaganda videos before.

“The attack by the Islamic State in America is only the beginning of our efforts to establish a wiliyah [province] in the heart of our enemy. Our aim was the khanzeer Pamela Geller and to show her that we don’t care what land she hides in or what sky shields her; we will send all our Lions to achieve her slaughter,” the message to “brothers and sisters fighting for the Sake of Allah” states.

“This will heal the hearts of our brothers and disperse the ones behind her. To those who protect her: this will be your only warning of housing this woman and her circus show. Everyone who houses her events, gives her a platform to spill her filth are legitimate targets. We have been watching closely who was present at this event and the shooter of our brothers. We knew that the target was protected. Our intention was to show how easy we give our lives for the Sake of Allah.”

The message says ISIS has stationed “71 trained soldiers in 15 different states ready at our word to attack any target we desire.”

“Out of the 71 trained soldiers 23 have signed up for missions like Sunday, We are increasing in number bithnillah. Of the 15 states, 5 we will name… Virginia, Maryland, Illinois, California, and Michigan,” the posting continues. “The disbelievers who shot our brothers think that you killed someone untrained, nay, they gave you their bodies in plain view because we were watching.”

“The next six months will be interesting, To our Amir Al Mu’mineen make dua for us and continue your reign, May Allah enoble your face,” it concludes, using an honorific title for Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.

Titled “The New Era,” the message was tweeted by a user who describes him or herself as “stuck in the lands of the kufr,” with a photo of an ISIS flag and a residential suburban neighborhood in the background.

Simpson tweeted about half an hour before the Garland attack, “The bro with me and myself have given bay’ah to Amirul Mu’mineen. May Allah accept us as mujahideen. Make dua #texasattack.”

White House press secretary Josh Earnest acknowledged today that Garland was “what appears to be an attempted terrorist attack.”
