.#Muslims Riot At Malls Day After Christmas, Media Blackout
Sorry to disappoint the Muslim witch-hunt, but it wasn’t Muslims who rioted the day after Christmas, it was Obama’s rotten sons: Thousands of them terrorizing malls and US Citizens in the name of America’s false prophet, Obama.
It’s been obvious from the beginning of the Common Core scheme that one of many weak links in the enterprise was college professors. What would happen when their classes were flooded with increasingly ill-prepared Common Core-“educated” students? That problem is now becoming apparent, and a professors’ revolt has now begun in Kentucky—the first state to adopt and implement the national curriculum mandates. Coupled with newly elected governor Matt Bevin’s desire to see Common Core removed from Kentucky, a state that Bill and Melinda Gates have touted as being a Common Core leader may soon join the others dropping Common Core like a hot potato….
Joseph Thomas Johnson-Shanks of Missouri shot and killed by law enforcement Monday morning after pumping multiple shots Sunday night into rookie Kentucky State Trooper Joseph Cameron Ponder killing 31-year old the state trooper.
Johnson-Shanks, age 25, it turns out was a supporter of Black Lives Matter who went by the pseudonym “Jay MileHigh” on Facebook.

Joseph Johnson Shanks is “Jay MileHigh” the BLM Activist….
CHAIN OF EVENTS:
On Sunday night shortly after 10 p.m., Kentucky Trooper Joseph Cameron Ponder, age 31, stopped a vehicle on Interstate 24 and upon the findings that Johnson-Shanks had a suspended driver’s license offered to arrange motel accommodations for the occupants of the vehicle for the night including Johnson-Shanks.
Johnson-Shanks’ response was to gun the accelerator initiating a high-speed chase that ended after Johnson-Shanks brought the vehicle to a sudden stop causing Trooper Ponder to crash into the rear of Johnson-Shanks’ vehicle.
According to reports, it was at this point that Johnson-Shanks leaned out of his vehicle and began firing multiple shots into the trooper’s vehicle killing Trooper Ponder. Johnson-Shanks next move was to flee on foot into the woods nearby leaving his occupants, two women and two children behind.
Kentucky State Police issued the following alert on their website and across social media.
Shortly after 7 a.m., law enforcement spotted Johnson-Shanks in the woods and still in possession of his firearm. According to police, Johnson-Shanks was shot after failed to heed orders to drop his firearm and aiming it at law enforcement. Johnson-Shanks died about an hour later.
Later in the day, police arrested Johnson-Shanks eighteen year old niece, Ambrea R.J. Shanks charging her with, “first-degree hindering prosecution or apprehension,” a Class D Felony. [NOTE: Ambrea Shanks’ social media pages (twicsy: @pretty_dopebre) appears to have been meticulouslyscrubbed as well. Police released the other occupants of the vehicle.
Kentucky Trooper Joseph Cameron Ponder, a U.S. Navy veteran from Rineyville, Kentucky had just graduated on January 2015 from KSP Training Academy.
The Kentucky judge who last week ordered the imprisonment of Kentucky County Clerk, Kim Davis, for refusing to issue gay marriage licenses has just ordered that Davis be released.
Pursuant to Kentucky U. S. District Judge David Bunning order, Davis must not interfere in any shape form or fashion, “directly or indirectly” with the issuance by her clerks of marriage licenses for all “legally eligible couples.”
‘Defendent Davis shall be released from the custody of the U.S. Marshal forthwith,’ read an order from U.S. District Judge David Bunning, according to BuzzFeed. ‘Defendant Davis shall not interfere in any way, directly or indirectly, with the efforts of her deputy clerks to issue marriage licenses to all legally eligible couples….’
Bunning has also banned Davis from doing television interviews. (What is this with the left and banning interviews with the media?)
As for the marriage licenses, as noted in Bunning’s order, they have been altered “so that ‘Rowan County’ rather than ‘Kim Davis; appears on the line reserved for the name of the county clerk, Plaintiffs have not alleged that the alterations affect the validity of the licenses. Nor do the alterations impact the Court’s finding that the deputy clerks have complied with the Court’s Order.”
The events continue to unfold surrounding Davis’ release. Republican Party 2016 presidential primary candidates, Senator Ted Cruz and former Governor Mike Huckabee are with Davis.
Attendees of this afternoon’s #ImWithKim rally are patiently awaiting Davis’ release outside the courthouse. (You can view the judge’s order at the bottom of this post and the rally it live stream here).
Progressives, especially the LGBT Gestapo is livid. Claiming that Davis escaped her punishment and accusing Bunning of folding, they are about to blow a gasket on Twitter.
“And every public official in our democracy is subject to the rule of law. No one is above the law. That applies to the president of the United States and that applies to the County Clerk and Rowan County, Kentucky, as well,” [Josh] Earnest said. “And that’s a fundamental principal of our democracy. In terms of how that applies to this particular case? That’s obviously something that a judge will have to decide. And I would not second guess it from here.”
Earnest said he hadn’t spoken with Obama about “this particular matter,” and was “obviously limited in what I can say, given the ongoing court activity.”
“I will just say on principle that the success of the democracy depends on the rule of law, and there is no public official that is above the rule of law,” he continued. “Certainly not the president of the United States, but neither is the Rowan County clerk. That’s a principle that is enshrined in our Constitution and in our democracy, and it’s one that, obviously, the courts are seeking to uphold.”
Some on the Right are saying she deserves this punishment because she has ‘defied the law’.
In two segments of his radio show tonight, Mark Levin demolishes this argument….
HOUSTON, Texas – U.S. Sen. Cruz, R-Texas, today released the following statement regarding the arrest of Kentucky Clerk Kim Davis:
“Today, judicial lawlessness crossed into judicial tyranny. Today, for the first time ever, the government arrested a Christian woman for living according to her faith. This is wrong. This is not America.
“I stand with Kim Davis. Unequivocally. I stand with every American that the Obama Administration is trying to force to choose between honoring his or her faith or complying with a lawless court opinion.
“In dissent, Chief Justice Roberts rightly observed that the Court’s marriage opinion has nothing to do with the Constitution. Justice Scalia observed that the Court’s opinion was so contrary to law that state and local officials would choose to defy it.
“For every politician — Democrat and Republican — who is tut-tutting that Davis must resign, they are defending a hypocritical standard. Where is the call for the mayor of San Francisco to resign for creating a sanctuary city — resulting in the murder of American citizens by criminal illegal aliens welcomed by his lawlessness?
“Where is the call for President Obama to resign for ignoring and defying our immigration laws, our welfare reform laws, and even his own Obamacare?
“When the mayor of San Francisco and President Obama resign, then we can talk about Kim Davis.
“Those who are persecuting Kim Davis believe that Christians should not serve in public office. That is the consequence of their position. Or, if Christians do serve in public office, they must disregard their religious faith–or be sent to jail.
“Kim Davis should not be in jail. We are a country founded on Judeo-Christian values, founded by those fleeing religious oppression and seeking a land where we could worship God and live according to our faith, without being imprisoned for doing so.
“I call upon every Believer, every Constitutionalist, every lover of liberty to stand with Kim Davis. Stop the persecution now.”
Religious persecution in the United States has just escalated to a whole new level as a U. S. District Judge David Bunning issued an order to incarcerate Kentucky County Clerk, Kim Davis Rowan, until Rowan agrees to comply with his order to issue marriage licenses to for all couples.
During her 20-minute testimony, Davis informed the court that “You can’t be separated from something that’s in your heart and in your soul…My conscience will not allow it. God’s moral law convicts me and conflicts with my duties.”
The ACLU wanted the judge to fine Davis but since various organizations are fundraising on Davis’ behalf and Davis “made it clear the fine wouldn’t change anything,” Bunning decided that fines were not enough to force Davis into compliance.
Davis’ attorney, Mac Staver’s response to his client’s incarceration is shock, “This wasn’t even what was part of the original request from the plaintiffs in this case…The judge went way beyond…. Kim Davis might be jailed for her conscience, but her conscience is free.”
Bunning has ordered the Deputy Clerk to court this afternoon where they will have to inform the court of their intent to comply or not with his earlier ruling to issue marriage licenses to gay couples.
The gay mafia with the mainstream media in tow ambushed Davis at her workplace the other day. You can see the video here.
Bunning’s order has escalated religious persecution in the United States, which has been steady rising the past several years to a completely new level.
Lastly, how would the federal government handle a Muslim refusing to issue marriage licenses for gay couples?
Would that individual be persecuted and incarcerated by the federal government? I doubt it very much.
