Air Force Veteran Relieved of Duties for Disagreeing with Homosexuality - Townhall - A 19-year veteran of the Air Force said he was relieved of his duties after he disagreed with his openly gay commander when she wanted to severely punish an instructor who had expressed religious objections to homosexuality. “I was relieved of my position because I don’t agree with my commander’s position on gay marriage,” Senior Master Sgt. Phillip Monk told Fox News. “We’ve been told that if you publicly say that homosexuality is wrong, you are in violation of Air Force policy.” The Liberty Institute is representing the Christian airman in case the Pentagon decides to retaliate. “Are we going to have a ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ policy for Christians so we don’t get harassed for our beliefs?” attorney Hiram Sasser asked Fox News. “Here’s a guy who wants to have his religious liberty and serve in the military. He shouldn’t have to believe in gay marriage in order to serve.” Read more.......

(2) Environmentalists Want You Powerless.....to Resist, Now Blocking Efforts to Mine Steel and Copper needed for Wind Turbines and Solar - Townhall Finance - The power plant closures are coming; the power plant closures are coming; the power plant closures are coming; and while no one is riding through town to announce the news, the results to America could be nearly as dire as the coming of the Redcoats. Despite millions already spent on modifications, fully functional coal-fueled power plants are being shut down—not because they are not needed but due to ideology.. But the problem with renewables isn’t just the cost or the intermittency. The problem is that environmentalists also oppose what it takes to get the natural resources needed to build, for example, a wind turbine. The Northwest Mining Association, lists the metals and minerals needed to build one 3 megawatt wind turbine, which includes: 335 tons of steel and 4.7 tons of copper. (To replace the 340 megawatts of electricity generated at San Juan with wind would take 113 three-megawatt wind turbines—or 37,855 tons of steel and 1598 tons of copper.) Most people don’t think about where the metals and minerals come from or what it takes to recover or shape them.   Read more........

THESE IMMIGRANTS ARE ALLOWED IN..........
(3) Asylum Seekers at Southwest - U.S. Border - Double - My Fox NY - Requests for asylum in the United States along the Southwest border with Mexico have more than doubled over the last three years as immigrants seek legal entry into the country by claiming fear of persecution back home, according to figures the federal government released Friday. The so-called credible fear claims at the border reached 14,610 by the end of June with three more months to go in the fiscal year, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security reported. That's compared with 6,824 such claims for the entire 2011 fiscal year.  Read more........

In the First Year of New Program, Deportation for 400,000 Young Immigrants  is Deferred - National Journal - About 400,000 "Dreamers" have been allowed to stay in the United States in the year since the Obama administration began accepting applications for young illegal immigrants to defer deportation proceedings and receive work permits, according to data compiled by the Brookings Institution and released on the anniversary of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. The numbers show that out of more than a half-million applicants for deferred action, more than three-quarters were accepted and just 1 percent denied. Read more........

BUT THIS FAMILY HAS TO APPEAL TO SUPREME COURT TO STAY IN U.S.
(4) German Homeschooling Family Will Take Their Fight to the Supreme Court - The Blaze - The German family seeking asylum in the United States so they can homeschool their children will take their battle to the Supreme Court, according to their legal team. Uwe and Hannelore Romeike, evangelical Christians, came to the U.S. seeking political asylum after they were prosecuted in Germany for homeschooling their children. An immigration judge granted them asylum in 2010, but the U.S. government appealed, arguing that laws against homeschooling don’t violate the family’s human rights. An immigration appeals board sided with the government, and the U.S. Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals last week denied the family’s request for a new hearing. Now, the Home School Legal Defense Association, which is representing the family, said they will take the fight to the Supreme Court......“The German High Court is on record for saying that religious homeschoolers should be targeted and severely punished, yet our Justice Department sees nothing wrong with that,” Farris said. Read more........
