House Resolution 257 and Senate Resolution 118 Criminalizes "Freedom of Speech"

Editor's Note: Resolutions are not legally binding in the same way a bill that became a law is.

By Capt Joseph R. John, June 21, 2017: Op Ed # 356

The Muslim Brotherhood and CAIR, International Terrorist Organizations, have managed to get Senate Resolution 118 and House Resolution 257 introduced into the House and Senate.  If those resolutions are passed into law, that law will “Criminalize Freedom of Speech”.  “If those resolutions were  approved by Congress, then proposed in a bill as a new law, that law would “Criminalize Freedom of Speech.” 

The Founding Fathers gave Americans “Freedom of Speech “ in the US Constitution; CAIR and the Muslim Brotherhood are trying to “Criminalize Freedom of Speech.”   

Those resolutions are part of the Muslim Brotherhood’s sinister plan to replace the US Constitution with Sharia Law, through a back door method of passing various laws that chip away at the precepts of the US Constitution.  Those International Terrorists know Patriotic Americans would never knowingly replace the US Constitution with Sharia Law. 

There is absolutely no need for this proposed new law since the current laws and civil rights laws already prohibits violence, threats of violence, discrimination against “all” individuals, and hate crimes.  The resolution conveniently protects Muslims but “Excludes Christians”. 

How could members of the House and Senate be so foolish as to pass those destructive resolutions that would undermine the US Constitution and would be the beginning of the Muslim Brotherhood success in slowly destroying the foundation upon which the Republic was created, the US Constitution---this law is a subtle attack against Christians and law enforcement. 

We are asking ever person who receives this E-mail, especially members of the US Armed Forces on active duty, Christian Clergy, members of Law Enforcement, and the 22 million Veterans in the United States who raised their right hand, and swore to “Protect and Defend the US Constitution”, to aggressively oppose those two Resolutions.  Please ask them to oppose this proposed law, and vote against any Senator or Congressmen “in both parties” who votes for this proposed anti-US Constitution and pro-Sharia Law resolutions.   

Americans should be concerned about those resolutions, especially the part of the House Resolution, which urges the establishment of an "interagency task force led by the Attorney General ... on the development of effective strategies and efforts to detect and deter hate crime in order to protect minority communities."  This is an attempt to suppress law enforcement and opposition to Sharia Law.

This resolutions were engineered by CAIR and The Muslim Brotherhood are designed to silence any America who speaks up to opposes what we are seeing happening in England today.  The goal is to “criminalizing speaking out against Radical Islamic Terrorism” resulting in arrest and being criminally charged in court.  The net result is that CAIR would make an example of any American who speaks out, and to suppress all Americans from ever speaking out against the Muslim Brotherhood and CAIR programs again (like opposing the indoctrination of students in Islam and Sharia law in Public Schools).

Please pass this E-mail on to every member in your address book, ask them to contact their Senators and Congressmen to oppose this proposed new law, whose details are discussed in the below listed article.

Then I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for Us?” Then I said, “Here am I. Send me!”

  • The law already prohibits violence and threats of violence, and law enforcement authorities are supposed to prosecute those -- intimidation, destruction, damage, vandalism, simple and aggravated assault. What "hate crimes" are not already covered by the law?
  • Why would the House of Representatives find it necessary to make such redundant statements, if not in order to redefine the concept of a hate crime? Perhaps by including "hate speech"? The current resolution includes most of the major ethnic and religious minorities in the United States, so it will have a far better chance of passing, as it will more easily fool Representatives into thinking that the contents of the resolution are harmless.
  • Would it not be appropriate for the politicians sponsoring and voting for these resolutions first of all to find out what drives the organizations responsible for drafting them? The Investigative Project on Terrorism has authored a damning 88-page report about the Muslim Public Affairs Council. American politicians do not seem to have taken much interest in it.
On April 4, 2017, the US Senate passed Senate Resolution 118, "Condemning hate crime and any other form of racism, religious or ethnic bias, discrimination, incitement to violence, or animus targeting a minority in the United States". The resolution was drafted by a Muslim organization, EmgageUSA (formerly EmergeUSA) and the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC). On April 6, 2017, EmgageUSA wrote the following on their Facebook page:

I've been trying to research this but have not been able to find the votes on it! It would be a shame to see it pass! We need to work harder at our candidate and check their loyalty to the American way of life. We should be insisting the our legislators read the Koran, Hadith and Sunna before giving them carte Blanche! How can we believe in America's values without hating a system that believes in slavery, torture, pedophilia, bestiality, necrophilia, and unequal rights for men and women! And to top it off, gives its followers permission to lie up and down for the benefit of Islam.

That article is nonsense.

At the federal level, "House Resolutions" and "Senate Resolutions" are not bills and do not get "passed into law." They are simply expressions of the sentiment of the House and Senate, respectively. Even if passed they have no force of law.

Here's an article which explains it:

Of course that means you don't even have to read the Resolutions to know that they do not "criminalize freedom of speech." That's just more bologna.

This is a hoax. Of course if you'd looked up the actual Resolutions you'd have known that. But you really don't even need to do that to know, with pretty high certainty, that it's bologna. There are two other ways you can tell:

1. Just think about it. What politician do you think would support a bill to "criminalize free speech," and to "protect Muslims" but “exclude Christians.” Seriously, just think about it!

2. Read it. It says, "Please pass this E-mail on to every member in your address book."

In other words, it is a chain-email. Really, that's all you need to know.

If you receive a message that asks you to forward it on to lots of other people, you can be almost certain that it is a hoax or a scam. I've seem 'em all: the virus warnings, the Proctor and Gamble smears, the dying child heartstring-tuggers, the MLM scams, the Madaline Murray O'Hair / FCC story, the internet tax hoaxes, etc., etc.. They are all false.

Only if such an email references a VERIFIABLE, recognizable, on-line source for more information should you even CONSIDER the possibility that it might be true. Even then it probably is not.

3. Or, of course, you could actually read the resolution. Here it is:

Then why is it on Marco Rubio's website if it is fake??

Janet Foley asked, "Then why is it on Marco Rubio's website if it is fake??"

It isn't. As far as I can tell, this nonsense article is not on either of Marco Rubio's web sites, Janet. Google can't find it there, anyhow:

Do you have a link?

Janet Foley / Jan Pace, again, I find no evidence that this article was on any site belonging to Marco Rubio. I can only think of three possible explanations:

1. I didn't look in the right place. But I don't think this is the case, because I just checked again, and Google still can't find it. By now Google would surely have indexed it, if it was really there. Or,

2. Perhaps it was briefly on one of Sen. Rubio's web sites, but they removed it when they discovered that it was not accurate. But that seems unlikely, because it would mean that someone on Sen. Rubio's staff didn't know the difference between a Senate Resolution and a Bill -- extremely basic stuff for a Congressional staffer to not understand. Or,

3. Perhaps you just made it up.

Please don't be insulted, I don't know you or anything about you. It's just that the world is full of liars, these days, and I have no way of knowing whether you're one of them, and I can't find any evidence that what you wrote is true.

About six weeks have elapsed and you still have not replied. Do you have a link for the alleged Rubio web page, which you claim has (or had) a copy of this story?

Please reply!
