Kansas Gov. Brownback Turns Attention To Non-Problem of Sharia Law

News

Havingall but eliminated legal access to abortion in the state of Kansas and also made it harder for women to access affordable birth control, Governor "#heblowsalot" Sam Brownback can now turn his attention to creating problems for Muslim women in particular, rather than for all women in general. He is cleverly doing this through taking on the very pressing, very important non-problem of judges applying foreign law in American courtrooms.


Fox News (of COURSE) is "reporting" that the law would go into effect on July 1:

Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback has signed a law aimed at keeping the state's courts or government agencies from basing decisions on Islamic or other foreign legal codes, and a national Muslim group's spokesman said Friday that a court challenge is likely.

The new law, taking effect July 1, doesn't specifically mention Shariah law, which broadly refers to codes within the Islamic legal system. Instead, it says courts, administrative agencies or state tribunals can't base rulings on any foreign law or legal system that would not grant the parties the same rights guaranteed by state and U.S. constitutions.

There is no known case in which a Kansas judge has implemented Shar'iah law in his or her courtroom, by the way, so clearly this is a problem deserving of immediate and sustained attention -- and OF COURSE, Governor Brownback thinks its wrong to mix religion and politics and SURELY he is doing this out of concern for women's rights, duh.

(Incidentally, a lack of specificity means that it might accidentally outlaw Orthodox Jewish practices, but everyone knows that you can't make an omelet without breaking eggs!) Also! Does this legislation really go far enough? Why stop at the law? Why not demand an end to all Arab OR Islamic influences, period! Where can we expect the tyranny of Arabic numerals and  algebra and alcohol to end? It's IN OUR SCHOOLS, won't someone think of the CHILDREN?? Governor #heblowsalot is our only hope in ending this madness! Besides, everyone is doing it.

Both the Washington-based council and the National Conference of State Legislatures say such proposals have been considered in 20 states, including Kansas. [L]aws similar to Kansas' new statute have been enacted in Arizona, Louisiana and Tennessee.

Ah yes. Arizona, Louisiana, and Tennessee. That's a ringing endorsement -- unless Florida gets on board, then it will REALLY be time to move on this issue. [HuffPo]

Barack Obama delivered his first major address of his post-presidency Tuesday at an event in Johannesburg, South Africa, honoring the 100th anniversary of Nelson Mandela's birth. It was -- as you'd expect for the occasion -- appropriately dignified and thoughtful. It was also every bit as inspiring as you might expect from the first black American president speaking in memory of the first black president of a nation that for most of its modern history was synonymous with apartheid. Let's take some time to bask in what an actual world leader sounds like, shall we?

Guess what Vladimir Putin's getting for Christmas! He's been dropping hints, and you know the Big Orange Baboon can't say no to him for some unknown reason. Gonna be so cute when little Vladdy stumbles down the stairs in his PJs, brushes the sleep from his eyes, and finds MONTENEGRO all wrapped up with a big bow under the Christmas tree. Adorbz!

Oh, but we are to kid! Just a little levity as President Treasonweasel slams a sledgehammer into the international framework that kept us out of another world war for the past 70 years. So why are we suddenly talking about a tinyass country whose chief export appears to be consonants? (Sorry, Montenegro. But your Predsjednik Crne Gore is Milo Đukanović, and your capital city is Cetinje, which is just cheating at Scrabble.)

Well! Donald Trump just got out of a two-hour, closed-door meeting with Vladimir Putin, whose government tried to stage a coup in 2016 to assassinate Đukanović and stop Montenegro's accession to the European Union. Which might not be a coincidence!
