A white woman mailed a lard-submerged Qur’an to Islamic center in California

Published

The Council on American-Islamic Relations is one of the most active pro-Islam voices in the Trump era — and when their Sacramento office was sent a pork lard-submerged Qur’an, they knew they’d struck a nerve.

As the Associated Press reported, the offensive package sent to the Sacramento CAIR office is now being investigated by police — and is the third time a mosque or Islamic center has been sent a defaced Qur’an in recent months.

Although Sacramento police are investigating the packages as a “hate activity,” they’re unlikely to press charges due to it not being a technically criminal action. Given that this is the third such incident in the area, “police have notified terrorist threat assessment agencies.”

“It’s deplorable behavior by someone to do something like this, and it’s very disrespectful to their religion. But yet there’s no specific crime that’s attached to it,” a Sacramento officer told AP. “We’re monitoring these types of instances and taking them very seriously.”

Police currently know that the package was sent from Houston by a white woman, but her identity is unknown.

Kennedy on November 22, 1963, one of the great historical crimes of American politics.

Gabbard replied she had not finished the book, but “from what I have read, it… speaks to what happened [on November 22] in a way that I haven’t seen anywhere else.”

Trump whines about losing the Time ‘Man of the Year’ award he lost to a teenage girl

Published

on

President Donald Trump goaded his audience into booing a teenager during a campaign rally in Colorado Springs on Thursday.

Trump said, "I got beaten up by Greta" -- in reference to Swedish climate change activist Greta Thunberg, who recently celebrated her 17th birthday.

The leader of the free world went on to complain about Thunberg being declared TIME magazine's "Person of the Year" award in 2019.

He said that many women wish it was still "Man of the Year" and suggested separate categories by gender, which would prevent him from competing against European teenage girls.

At his latest campaign rally in Colorado Springs, Colorado, President Donald Trump launched into one of his typical attacks on media reports that print unflattering information about him, raging about "fake news" and calling it "so disgusting."

He then joked that he will be in office for 26 more years — which would be a flagrant violation of the Constitution's two-term limit for presidents — and that when he does, "they're going to miss us."
