Conservatives Press Bill that Would Pull the United States OUT of the United Nations!
In the wake of the wonderful decision by the people of the United Kingdom to #Brexit, some conservatives in Congress have decided to seize the moment and push for an #Amexit (American Exit) from the United Nations! It’s an idea that conservatives have long supported and may now grab the national imagination, as Americans seek new ways to disconnect themselves from the corrupt establishment that runs our political world.
Bill sponsors Thomas Massie (R-KY), Mike Rogers (R-MI), Tim Huelskamp (R-KS), Jeff Duncan (R-SC), Lynn Westmoreland (R-GA), and Ted Yoho (R-FL) recently released the text of their bill hoping to convince Americans to embrace Independence and leave the U.N.
In response to overwhelming interest in the bill to #amexit from the UN, here is the full text of HR 1205, the American Sovereignty Restoration Act. Among other things, this bill would (1) stop US payments to the UN, (2) prevent US Armed Forces from serving under UN command, (3) terminate diplomatic immunity for foreign UN members in the US, (4) get the UN out of the US, i.e. close the headquarters in NY, (5) terminate US membership in the UN, WHO, UNESCO, (6) repeal the United Nations Environment Program Participation Act.

Culture War victory:
Federal court orders schools to end anti-Christian bias
Awards $150,000 in case called ‘major victory’
It’s being hailed as good news in the unfolding battle for religious freedom: A Christian ministry has won its three-year legal struggle against an Ohio school district accused of discriminating against the faith-based group.
The Child Evangelism Fellowship of Ohio won the legal battle against the Cleveland Metropolitan School District as a federal district court approved a Consent Order finding that the school district violated CEF’s constitutional rights to equal access.
The court is requiring Cleveland Metro Schools to change its facility-use policies, and ordering it to pay $150,000 in damages and attorney’s fees.
The Child Evangelism Fellowship, or CEF, filed suit in 2013 with the backing of Liberty Counsel, seeking equal access to CMSD’s public school facilities for CEF’s after-school, Christian character education Good News Clubs.
Liberty Counsel announced the court ruling as a “major victory for equal access” on its website.

Swiss immigration policy
Swiss do the unthinkable with Muslim population
‘A move which no doubt has American immigration officials baffled’
As one of the more independent-minded European countries, Switzerland is now doing the unthinkable with their Muslim population: denying citizenship for failing to integrate into Swiss society.
One recent example involves two Muslim sisters, ages 12 and 14, who refused to take school swimming lessons because of the presence of boys. They said their religion prevents them from participating in compulsory swimming lessons with males in the pool at the same time.
The girls live in the northern city of Basel. They had applied for Swiss citizenship several months ago, but their request was denied because the sisters did not comply with the school’s curriculum.
“Whoever doesn’t fulfill these conditions violates the law and therefore cannot be naturalized,” Stefan Wehrle, president of the naturalization committee, told TV station SRF.
Wehrle said the case in which citizenship is denied for failure to comply with a school program will set precedence for future cases.
In 2012, a Muslim family was fined $1,500 for refusing to allow their daughters to participate in swim classes. The matter worked its way up to the Supreme Court, which ruled that no dispensations from swimming lessons should be made on religious grounds.
In another case, the Swiss naturalization board denied citizenship to members of another immigrant family because they wore sweatpants around town and did not greet passersby, which indicated they were not sufficiently assimilated.
The German-speaking Muslim family, originally from Kosovo, had their citizenship application denied in part because of complaints that they preferred fleece and cotton blends (sweatpants) to denim (jeans), according to local media.
