The ease with which Muslims manipulate and dictate every move in Western establishments is devastating. See previous post this morning. via Judge ousted in Fort Hood shooting case amid beard debacle – CBS News.
FORT WORTH, Texas The U.S. military’s highest court ousted the judge in the Fort Hood shooting case Monday and threw out his order to have the suspect’s beard forcibly shaved before his court-martial.
The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces ruled that Col. Gregory Gross didn’t appear impartial while presiding over the case of Maj. Nidal Hasan, who faces the death penalty if convicted in the 2009 shootings on the Texas Army post that killed 13 people and wounded more than two dozen others.
But the court said it was not ruling on whether the judge’s order violated Hasan’s religious rights. Hasan has argued that his beard is a requirement of his Muslim faith, although facial hair violates Army regulations.
“Should the next military judge find it necessary to address (Hasan’s) beard, such issues should be addressed and litigated anew,” judges wrote in the ruling.
Hasan appealed after Gross ordered that he must be clean-shaven or be forcibly shaved before his court-martial, a military trial.
The court-martial had been set to begin three months ago, but has been on hold pending the appeals.
In a statement issued Monday night, Fort Hood officials said proceedings in the case will resume after a new judge is appointed by the Army’s highest legal branch. That indicates Army prosecutors will not appeal this ruling to the U.S. Supreme Court.
An Army appeals court had upheld the shaving requirement in October. But on Monday, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces said the command, not the judge, was responsible for enforcing grooming standards. The ruling said that was one example of how Gross did not appear impartial in the case.
Gross had repeatedly said Hasan’s beard was a disruption to the court proceedings, but the military appeals court ruled that there was insufficient evidence to show that his beard interfered with the hearings.
Gross found Hasan in contempt of court at six previous pretrial hearings because he was not clean-shaven, then sent him to a nearby trailer to watch the proceedings on a closed-circuit television. The appeals court’s ruling also vacated the contempt of court convictions.
At a June hearing, lead defense attorney Lt. Col. Kris Poppe said the judge showed a bias against Hasan when he asked defense attorneys to clean up a court restroom after Gross found a medical waste bag, adult diaper and what appeared to be feces on the floor after a previous hearing. Hasan, who is paralyzed from the waist down after being shot by police the day of the shootings, has to wear adult diapers – but the mess in the restroom that day was mud from a guard’s boots, Poppe said.
“In light of these rulings, and the military judge’s accusations regarding the latrine, it could reasonably appear to an objective observer that the military judge had allowed the proceedings to become a duel of wills between himself and (Hasan) rather than an adjudication of the serious offenses with which (Hasan) is charged,” judges wrote in the ruling.
It’s a duel America and the West are losing.
FYI, this case should have been a slam dunk as there were dozens of witnesses and video evidence, however a Soldier was Ordered to Delete Fort Hood Video Evidence.

CAROLINA BEACH, NC (WECT/AP) – One victim of the Fort Hood shooting spree is upset over Monday’s court decisions in the case of Major Nidal Hasan, the suspect in the massacre.
Kimberly Munley, the former civilian officer who was shot several times trying to stop the shooting, released a statement responding to rulings of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces.
The court on Monday ousted the judge from the case, ruling Col. Gregory Gross didn’t appear impartial while presiding over Maj. Hasan’s case. The court also threw out Col. Gross’ order that Hasan be forcibly shaved. Hasan says his beard is a requirement of his Muslim faith, but facial hair violates Army rules.
The appeals court says the command, not the judge, is responsible for enforcing grooming standards.
“In response to the most recent decision of the US Court of Appeals in reference to the Hasan trial, I am utterly appalled!” was Munley’s response in an email to WECT. “On Oct 18, 2012, the next lower Appellate Court (The US Army Court of Criminal Appeals) ruled in favor of Judge Gross to have the suspect forcibly shaved and to allow the Judge to continue overseeing the case. Today’s decision by the USCA, in my opinion, is a further ploy to delay this trial to avoid the truth from being revealed that Major Hasan’s bloody massacre could have been prevented if the Government would have done their job.”
“It further supports the fact that there is an extensive effort to cover up “Political Correctness” that occurred in the facts leading up to this incident and that continues to occur to this day,” Munley continued in her statement. “Unfortunately, the accused will continue to receive pay and benefits until he is convicted and I do not believe this conviction will happen within the next year due to this circumstance. It’s already been over three years and the victims deserve justice! No other military trial in history has taken this long. Please visit WWW.TRUTHABOUTFORTHOOD.COM to see what you can do to help remedy this issue and to help get the victims the benefits they deserve.”
Hasan faces the death penalty if convicted in the Nov. 2009 shooting spree on the Army post in Texas. The shooting killed 13 people and wounded more than two dozen others. Munley was shot four times in the exchange of gunfire with the suspect. Munley has become a spokesperson for a group petitioning for the Department of Defense to consider the incident as “a terrorist attack” instead of “a workplace shooting”, so victims and their families can receive proper benefits.

General Patraeus Sir,
We seem to have a President who was willing to let GOOD MEN DIE to hide something else, something very sinister that was happening in Benghazi.
You KNOW more than what you let on, Sir.Your recent testimony before Congress appeared to throw the Administration under the bus, but lingering questions remain. Rice is a distraction. We want to know the truth.

A Tombstone, Ariz., lawsuit against the federal government over the right to repair its water system will be argued in the Ninth Circuit today.
According to a Tuesday report on “Fox and Friends,” the U.S. Forest Service has prevented the town from repairing its own water line because it could harm the habitat of the Mexican spotted owl.
Tombstone lost its water source in a wildfire in 2011 and despite, as host Steve Doocy put it, there being boulders “the size of Volkswagens there,” the town could not use heavy equipment to get in and fix the water source, affecting its supply for drinking and fire trucks.
“You just can’t make this stuff up,” said Darcy Olsen, president and CEO of the Goldwater Institute, which is arguing the case on behalf of Tombstone.
“This is an unbelievable situation in Arizona,” she said. “It’s a declared state of emergency. These pipe springs have been melted, they’ve been wrapped around trees like spaghetti because of the monsoons and the people of Tombstone only have access to three out of 25 springs so they don’t even have a two-day water supply down there. So it’s imperative that the Feds get out of the way and let the people repair those pipelines.”
“These ecological extremists are everywhere, and what they are forgetting in this situation is that these pipe lines have co-existed with these animals for over 100 years, as long as the pipe lines have been there.”
Olsen said she simply wanted the courts to enforce the 10th Amendment of the Constitution, citing the example of Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal being held up by the federal government in the state’s efforts to protect shore lines after the 2010 BP oil spill disaster.
“No one wants to destroy the habitat, and of course the people want to protect the forest as well,” she said. “That’s our forest. I think that that’s the federal government throwing up the usual blockades. All we are asking the court here is to enforce the 10th amendment, that states and municipalities have the right to protect the public health and safety, particularly in states of emergency like this.”

States DO Have The Right To Secede!
A Commentary by J. D. Longstreet
Allow me to say, right of, that I do not believe my fellow Americans now calling for secession will actually go so far as to secede. Although, eventually, there WILL be a breakup of the United States, that much is abundantly clear.
In my opinion, the petitions for secession are expressions of the frustration and anger of the general populace of America today. It is vox populi — the voice of the people.
Now that those of you who have placed your names on those petitions are being derided as “traitors” Allow me to ask: Have you any more insight into why I take exception to my great-grandfather being called a “traitor” because he fought as a Confederate soldier for his home state of South Carolina?
The history of the era of the American Civil War has been so rewritten and sanitized to absolve the United States government of any fault, that it is really difficult to get to the truth behind what REALLY happened and what REALLY caused some 13 states, in whole or in part, to leave the Union.
Here is a quote from one of my favorite Confederate generals – General Patrick R. Cleburne: “I am with the South in life or in death, in victory or defeat. I never owned a negro and care nothing for them, but these people have been my friends and have stood up to me on all occasions. In addition to this, I believe the North is about to wage a brutal and unholy war on a people who have done them no wrong, in violation of the Constitution and the fundamental principles of the government…We propose no invasion of the North, no attack on them, and only ask to be let alone.” … Patrick R. Cleburne
Later, Cleburne warned what would happen if the South lost. He was spot on! Here’s what he said: “Every man should endeavor to understand the meaning of subjugation before it is too late… It means the history of this heroic struggle will be written by the enemy; that our youth will be trained by Northern school teachers; will learn from Northern school books their version of the war; will be impressed by the influences of history and education to regard our gallant dead as traitors, and our maimed veterans as fit objects for derision… It is said slavery is all we are fighting for, and if we give it up we give up all. Even if this were true, which we deny, slavery is not all our enemies are fighting for. It is merely the pretense to establish sectional superiority and a more centralized form of government, and to deprive us of our rights and liberties.” — Maj. General Patrick R. Cleburne, CSA, January 1864
