WOW: In Historic Decision, Supreme Court Drops ‘In God We Trust’ Decision On Dems

The United States made a historical move late last week and declined to take up a legal challenge from an Atheist who wanted to remove “In God We Trust” on all U.S. coins and currency.

As noted by the Washington Examiner, the nation’s highest court rejected the challenge from atheist Michael Newdow, who claimed the inclusion of the phrase on American currency violated the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment.

The Establishment Clause declares that “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion.”

A 1955 law passed by Congress requires all currency to include the phrase “In God We Trust,” but it actually first appeared on coins dating all the way back to 1864.

Here’s more from the Examiner:

Newdow claimed that “by mandating the inscription of facially religious text on every coin and currency bill,” the government thereby deemed atheists “political outsiders.”

The lawsuit also argued that the phrase violated the Fifth Amendment’s due process clause and the 1993 Religious Freedom Restoration Act because it forces “Petitioners (who are Atheists) to bear and proselytize that Montheistic message.”

The 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals dismissed Newdow’s case in 2018, arguing the phrase “does not compel citizens to engage in a religious observance.” The Supreme Court elected not to rule on the case, instead letting the circuit court’s decision stand.

Newdow has brought forth other challenges to what he perceives as government endorsements of religion. In 2004, he unsuccessfully argued the words “under God” in the Pledge of Allegiance violated the First Amendment.

Newdow also tried to stop the phrase “So help me God” from being used in the 2009, 2013, and 2017 presidential inauguration ceremonies, but was unsuccessful in court.

The Examiner notes that Newdow has a long history of trying to legally challenge the federal government from using phrases that include the word “God.”

Newdow has mounted several challenges to what he claims is the government’s unconstitutional endorsement of religion.

In 2004, he brought a case arguing the words “under God” in the Pledge of Allegiance violated the First Amendment, though was unsuccessful before the Supreme Court.

He also sought to block Chief Justice John Roberts from saying the phrase “So help me God” while administering the presidential oath of office to President Barack Obama during his inauguration in 2009.

Newdow also sought to stop the phrase from being recited in the 2013 and 2017 inaugurations. A federal court threw out that lawsuit, and the Supreme Court in 2011 declined to take up the case.

While it’s true that the First Amendment states that “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion,” the Supreme Court didn’t feel that the motto was in violation of any laws.

And, more importantly, the SCOTUS completely dismissed the case without even feeling the need to explain why.

Another day, another failed anti-religious lawsuit from a deranged liberal.

Fallen angelic hybrids/Disclosure coming soon – TRUTH IS OUT THERE Politicians’ top secret briefings on UFOs revealed as latest admission US government takes sightings seriously

TOP US politicians have been given a secret briefing about UFOs, it has been revealed.

The Senators on the Intelligence Committee were given the briefing about a series of encounters between US Navy planes and unidentified aircraft, one of them has said.

 US Navy pilots ‘spotted hypersonic UFOs performing manoeuvres beyond physical limits of humans on a daily basis in 2014 and 2015’

A spokeswoman for Senator Mark Warner, the vice chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, confirmed the briefing took place.

“If naval pilots are running into unexplained interference in the air, that’s a safety concern Senator Warner believes we need to get to the bottom of,” Rachel Cohen told Politico.

Donald Trump said he too has been briefed on UFOs but admitted he doesn’t believe in them.

The Navy itself didn’t comment on the latest meeting but has in the past confirmed that it provides briefings for the Congressional members by Naval Intelligence officials as well as aviators.

Earlier this year, the Navy revealed there have been reported sightings of UFOs hovering above top-secret military bases and flying near aircraft.

The daily sightings came over the course of 2014 and 2015 and were reported to the Pentagon and Congress.

Briefing requests by Congress members have been on the increase since it was revealed  the Pentagon’s shadowy Aerospace Threat Identification Program (AATIP) still investigates UFO sightings, the New York Post reported.

How many alien and UFO sightings have there been?

The number of UFO sightings is currently flying at an all-time high

According to data cruncher and blogger Sam Monfort there are around 45,000 annual reported sightings in the US.

He also says there have been more than 100,000 recorded UFO sightings in the past 100-plus years.

The first recorded flyby occurred in Portland in 1905, where viewers reported seeing a “buzzing” sphere-shaped UFO that descended from the heavens.

Sightings have spiked dramatically over the past 30-plus years with mysterious lights taking over from saucers as the most popular description of objects spotted.

The National UFO Reporting Centre is an organisation that investigates sightings.

Since it was set up in 1974, reports have been sent to it via its 24 hour hotline and it says that between May and June this year there have been more than 500 new sightings.

The United States collectively reports 2,500 sightings per 10 million people, which is 300 times more than the global median.

The existence of the AATIP was revealed in 2017, along with a 33-second DOD video that shows an airborne object being chased by two Navy jets off the coast of San Diego in 2004.

At the time, former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid took credit for arranging $22 million in annual funding for the AATIP, telling the New York Times that it was “one of the good things I did in my congressional service.”
Reid’s home state of Nevada hosts the top-secret military installation known as “Area 51,” long rumoured to be the storehouse for an alien craft that crashed in Roswell, New Mexico, in 1947.

The service is drafting new guidelines for pilots and other naval employees so it’s easier for them to report any mysterious objects they spot in the sky.

A few years ago, a leaked report from the Pentagon revealed that a supersonic UFO shaped like a Tic Tac sweet had stalked a US Aircraft carrier for days before vanishing into thin air.https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/9335899/politicians-briefings-ufos-government-sightings-seriously/

Amazon drones could be used to spy on your home and spot intruders, patent reveals

An early design for Amazon's delivery drones

Amazon wants to use its network of delivery drones to keep watch over customers’ houses by forming a flying Neighbourhood Watch scheme.

The company has patented a system that it calls “surveillance as a service” which would see its network of delivery drones filming Amazon customers’ homes from the skies while on their way to delivering packages.

The drones would look for signs of break-ins, such as smashed windows, doors left open, and intruders lurking on people’s property. Anything unusual could then be photographed and passed on to the customer and the police…https://www.telegraph.co.uk/technology/2019/06/19/amazon-drones-could-used-spy-home-spot-intruders-patent-reveals/

Supreme Court upholds cross on public land in Maryland

WASHINGTON (AP) — A World War I memorial in the shape of a 40-foot-tall cross can continue to stand on public land in Maryland, the Supreme Court ruled Thursday in an important decision about the use of religious symbols in American life.

The justices, ruling 7-2 in favor of the cross’ backers, said preserving a long-standing religious monument is very different from allowing the building of a new one. The court concluded that the nearly 100-year-old memorial’s presence on a grassy highway median doesn’t violate the First Amendment’s establishment clause, which prohibits the government from favoring one religion over others…https://apnews.com/6157d29563584c35a2adf6a004f89117

“We Don’t Need Another Apology”: Congressional Hearing Erupts In Boos As Black Student Trashes Reparations Bill

Nothing infuriates the left like listening to a minority express a conservative opinion. And so it was on Wednesday when a black student who was descended from slaves who worked on Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello plantation said he opposed the idea of reparations, saying “the people who are owed for slavery are no longer here” and “we are not entitled to collect on their debts.” 

Quillette writer Coleman Hughes, who spoke at the hearing, dismissed a bill to study the prospect of reparations as “a moral and political mistake.” The crowd at the hearing, held by the House Judiciary Committee’s subcommittee on the constitution, civil rights, and civil liberties, booed when Hughes said “black people don’t need another apology…we need safer schools and better schools. We need a better criminal justice system….we need better health care. And none of these things can be achieved through reparations for slavery.”

Israel Holds Largest “Hezbollah War Exercise” In Years Amid Iran Tensions

Israel conducted the largest military drill it’s held in years during the first half of this week, according to the AP, which described the exercise as intended a simulated “future war” against Hezbollah

The four-day war games concluded on Wednesday, and though pre-planned, came just days following the tanker attack incident in the Gulf of Oman which has sent tensions between Washington and Tehran soaring. The exercise focused on an Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) multi-pronged all-branch deployment against threats on Israel’s northern border

Israeli officials have cited fears that Tehran could mobilize its Lebanese proxy force to mount a major attack on Israel’s north. To simulate a response to such an attack, which is reminiscent to the 2006 Israeli-Hezbollah war which took place in southern Lebanon, the IDF deployed a large fleet of unmanned aircraft and F-35 stealth jets, along with simulating tunnel operations — an infiltration tactic long used by Hezbollah as well as Palestinian Hamas. 

According to the AP, statements made by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as he observed part of the drill didn’t reference Hezbollah by name, though it was clear the Lebanese Shia militant group was being referenced.

“I am very impressed by the improvement in readiness, by the fighting spirit of the soldiers and commanders, and mainly by the destructive power,” Netanyahu said. “I say to our enemies: The (military) has very great destructive power. Don’t test us.”

However on Tuesday Israeli President Reuven Rivlin did single out the “threat” from across the country’s northern border: “We caution Hezbollah not to subordinate Lebanon to Iran’s agenda, and we caution Lebanon not to be used as a launching pad for attacks against Israel,” Rivlin said. “We are not happy to go to war, but the military is fully prepared to respond to any threat and any scenario.”…https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-06-19/israel-holds-largest-hezbollah-war-exercise-years-amid-iran-tensions

Putin: U.S. Use Of Force Against Iran Would Be A ‘Disaster’

Putin says use of US force against Iran would be ‘disaster’  Russian President Vladimir Putin on Thursday said any use of force by the US against Iran would lead to disaster as tensions escalate between Washington and Tehran. “The US says it does not rule out the use of force… This would be a disaster for the region,” Putin said during an annual televised phone-in with screened questions posed by Russian viewers. “It would lead to a surge in violence and an increase in the number of refugees,” he said, adding that the consequences of intervention would be “difficult to calculate”. Moscow has backed Tehran in its stand off with the United States since Washington pulled out of an international 2015 nuclear agreement with Iran last year. Putin repeated Russia’s insistence that sanctions against Iran are “unreasonable”. The comment comes at a time of growing antagonism between Iran and the US following two waves of still unexplained attacks on Gulf shipping, which Washington has blamed on Tehran. Iran has denied any involvement and hinted that the US might have orchestrated them itself to provide a pretext for the use of force against the Islamic republic. On Thursday tensions also heightened after the Pentagon confirmed that Iranian forces had shot down a US naval surveillance drone. The US has insisted the aircraft was in international air space but Iran has said the drone had violated Iranian airspace.
