The National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) that is to be passed by Congress very soon included a religious freedom amendment designed to protect defense contractors from religious discrimination. It has been stripped from the bill at the last minute.
In the aftermath of the Somali Muslim terrorist attack against students at Ohio State University, Congressman Jim Jordan (R-OH) appeared on “Lou Dobbs” last night to discuss Obama’s failed Muslim “refugee resettlement program.” The program has imported thousands upon thousands of Somalis during the past eight years.

President-elect Donald Trump set off a media wildfire when he tweeted out this message last Sunday: “In addition to winning the Electoral College in a landslide, I won the popular vote if you deduct the millions of people who voted illegally.” Now, voter-integrity activists say he may be right about winning the popular vote.
“We are not just trying to raise the problem; we are also trying to raise how you solve it.

That still wouldn’t change the final result because it would throw the election to the House of Representatives, where each state would cast one vote. The Republicans would likely still win. It just wasn’t a Democratic year.
In 1994, nearly every member of Congress supported legislation affirming that the free exercise of religion is an “unalienable right.” Four years later, Congress unanimously declared that religious freedom “undergirds the very origin and existence of the United States.”
