Health Care Bill religious exemptions, Muslims, Amish, US Constitution, Lawsuits

Health Care Bill religious exemptions, Muslims

I am still trying to get answers on religious exemptions to participation in the so called Health Care Bill. I have been getting feedback that various religious groups getting preferential treatment may be the basis for some of the lawsuits.  The American Thinker site posed this question regarding Muslims several days ago.

“Amish, Muslims to be excused from Obamacare mandate?”

“Apparently, this exemption will apply similarly to believers in Islam, which considers health insurance – and, for that matter, any form of risk insurance – to be haraam (forbidden).

Steve Gilbert of Sweetness & Light calls our attention to the probability that Muslims will also be expempt. According to a March 23 publication on an authoritative Islamic Web site managed by Sheikh Muhammed Salih Al-Munajjid, various fatwas (religious decrees) absolutely forbid Muslim participation in any sort of health care or other risk insurance:
Health insurance is haraam like other types of commercial insurance, because it is based on ambiguity, gambling and riba (usury). This is what is stated in fatwas by the senior scholars.

In Fataawa al-Lajnah al-Daa’imah (15/277) there is a quotation of a statement of the Council of Senior Scholars concerning the prohibition on insurance and why it is haraam:

It says in Fataawa al-Lajnah al-Daa’imah (15/251):
Firstly: Commercial insurance of all types is haraam because it involves ambiguity, riba, uncertainty, gambling and consuming people’s wealth unlawfully, and other shar’i

Secondly: It is not permissible for the Muslim to get involved with insurance companies by working in administration or otherwise, because working in them comes under the heading of cooperating in sin and transgression, and Allaah forbids that as He says: “but do not help one another in sin and transgression. And fear Allaah. Verily, Allaah is Severe in punishment”

[al-Maa’idah 5:2]. End quote.

reservations.
And Allaah knows best.
So, it turns out that observant Muslims are not only strictly forbidden from buying any health insurance under the ObamaCare mandate, but may also not even work for any company that provides such insurance or any other form of commercial insurance.”

Florida Attorney General, Health care bill unconstitutional, State attorney generals, Lawsuits, State sovereignty, Congress no authority to mandate health insurance

 “We the people are the rightful masters of both Congress and the courts, not to overthrow the Constitution but to overthrow the men who pervert the Constitution.”…Abraham Lincoln

The tax and control bill being forced down our throats is most certainly not health care reform and most assuredly unconstitutional. Here are some exerpts from a letter written by Florida Attorney General, Bill McCollum, on March 16, 2010.
“As you know, President Obama has announced that he will push forward with health care legislation that includes a living tax on Americans who choose not to purchase health care insurance. Congress may take actiopn as soon as this week to send a bill to the President. After a thorough analysis of the individual mandate to buy health care insurance, I reman convinced it would be unconstitutional if signed into law.”

The Post & Email has an article on this from March 21, 2010.

“Florida Attorney General promises lawsuit against unconstitutional health care bill”
“Florida Attorney General Bill McCollum has written a letter to Jon Bruning, President of the National Association of Attorneys General, inviting him to “join me in preparing a legal challenge to the constitutionality of whatever individual mandate provision emerges, immediately upon the legislation becoming law.”  The letter was sent March 16, 2010 and includes an analysis of what McCollum perceives as unconstitutional provisions of the bill being contemplated by Congress.
Among his many objections to the bill, McCollum cites:  “…the individual mandate, whether levied as a tax or as a tax penalty, is a capitation or direct tax that is not apportioned evenly among the states as is constitutionally required.”  The closing paragraph of the six-page document states, “While affected citizens of every state may pursue judicial relief from the individual mandate provisions, states have standing to sue the federal government to protect their sovereign and quasi-sovereign interests.”
According to his website, McCollum has also called for a group of state agencies to analyze the financial impact of any federal health care legislation on his state.  Participating would be the Office of Insurance Regulation, the Department of Children and Families, and the Department of Health, among others.
McCollum is a candidate for governor of Florida.  He has stated that the Florida Constitution has a provision which guarantees “the right to be let alone and free from governmental intrusion into [their] private life.”
On Thursday, March 18, South Carolina Attorney General Henry McMaster announced that he would join McCollum in legal action if federal health care legislation is passed.  McMaster reportedly said, “”It is my belief and that of other attorneys general that this is clearly unconstitutional. That’s why we’re moving forward. We need to protect the sovereignty of our states and the liberty of our people.””

“We must, indeed, all hang together, or most assuredly we shall all hang separately.“…Benjamin Franklin

I have been thinking about this for some time. We get a lot of comments on this blog. I thank you very much for your efforts and concern about this country. I have stated many times that I could not make this blog effective without the support of so many patriotic Americans.

I have tried to research and write about the major concerns of most Americans and cover the stories that the Main Stream Media has ignored or covered up. This has been a huge challenge that only could have happened with your help.

This article is the first in what I anticipate will be a regular if not daily effort to provide the commenters on this blog with a forum to read and report on issues that you find most relevant. This is a first step to make us more interactive and your input more relevant. We have been discussing some more ideas that will probably be implemented soon. Please be patient with me and at the same time persistent in those ideas that you believe will make us more effective.

I will continue to post articles that I believe are important and will certainly use your input as one of my guides. Please comment on any of the postings that you desire. My hope is that even if you are compelled to comment on the Open Thread, that you will also provide your input on the articles that I write or are provided by others.

Once again, thanks for all of your efforts.

Orly Taitz interview, March 17, 2009, Steve Malzberg, Lawsuits, Chief Justice John Roberts, Justice Scalia, Obama not eligible, Birth Certificate, Obama not natural born citizen, US Supreme Court, US Military plaintiffs, Malzberg radio show

From an email we received:

“We received word from Steve Malzberg that Attorney Orly Taitz will be on his show today.    
     As much of our country knows (and increasingly other parts of the world), she is the relentless California attorney who is seeking to have Mr. Obama release his Original Birth Certificate (and other documents) now to prove his eligibility for president, especially as our young troops are about to be sent to Mexico, as new “economic” measures are signed, etc.
     So, it’s a must catch, especially with all that’s happening.
    She will be on Super Steve’s show today, 3-17-09,
    at 4pm (Eastern), on 710-am radio…
    and online at  www.worradio.com. , http://www.wor710.com/
    http://www.wor710.com/pages/418904.php  3-6pm. (Eastern)
    Among other items, she will likely be discussing her recent public interactions with Supreme Court Justice Scalia and Chief Justice Roberts.
    Again, this is a must catch, regardless of party, as any transparency issues  involving eligibility affect our nation right to local law enforcement, our military, etc. (many bcc’d herein).  Further, she will likely discuss  the apparently unbelievable actions of certain court employees.
    By the way, we have not seen the original birth certificate…nor have any of you.  So we don’t know whether there is eligibility or not. We think we all should know, especially those of us that voted for him.   Don’t you?
    Many of you will logically ask, as we did, “Well, he must have shown his birth certificate  when he was vetted.  I had to show mine for my job” (especially law enforcement).
   OK, we couldn’t find it; not at Party (both) sites, the State Departments, the Electors, etc.  If any of you can, please show us…or just save time and listen to Dr. Taitz and Super Steve.
   Please circulate; it is a most important show………..

US Constitution


Tenth Amendment


“The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor
prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively,
or to the people.”


Election laws vary from state to state.
The states control the election process up to the vote by the Electoral
college. States accept the nominee of the major political party and claim
that they have no jurisdiction to qualify or exclude.
However, Citizen Wells’ position is that the US Constitution clearly
defines eligibilty for the presidency and the Constitution rules.


UNITED STATES ELECTION LAW


“The following provisions of law governing Presidential Elections are contained in Chapter 1 of Title 3, United States Code (62 Stat. 672, as amended):”


“§ 8.   The electors shall vote for President and Vice President, respectively, in the manner directed by the Constitution.”


US Constitution, Federal Election Laws, State Election Laws


Legal Notice. NC law cited on ineligible or disqualified


Article on eligibility


Article on Electoral College


Caution to state election officials, Electors


Warning sent to Secretary of State, election officials of all states


There is compelling evidence that Obama is ineligible to be president and
no proof that he is. There is an obligation and duty to uphold the
Constitution. The states indicate they are powerless to remove someone
from the ballot. I have read no law that prohibits a state from removing
someone from the ballot and some states have provisions for removing
unqualified candidates.


Therefore, the Tenth Amendment to the US Constitution gives power to the people to challenge candidates for removal. Many have sworn an oath to uphold the Constitution. This includes, but is not limited to, Electoral College Electors.


In addition to Philip J Berg’s lawsuit in federal court that is now before
the Supreme Court, there are numerous state lawsuits and now lawsuits
initiated by Electoral College Electors. Consider the following:


“FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:   Vice presidential Candidate filing lawsuit against Obama

Vice presidential Candidate Wiley S. Drake Sr. to file in court asking to
de-certify Barack Obama because he has refused to release proof of being a Natural Born Citizen, thereby disqualifying Obama in his bid for the Office of President.


The recent Lawsuit in Washington State demanding their Secretary of State to vet the citizenship credentials of Barack Obama has spawned a slew of similar suits with new lawsuits filed and/or prepared in WA, FL, NC, CO, CA, OH, FL, CT, GA, TX, MI.  Related lawsuits HI, US District.


As part of this effort, this group of citizens from states across the union made an outreach to the whole presidential slate asking each candidate for president and vice president to offer up a certified copy of their birth certificates and any related candidate declarations to be placed in a library made available to the public via a non-partisan web site. 


At least one VP candidate Wiley S. Drake Sr. went the next step and agreed to file a lawsuit of his own to demand the disqualification of Barack Obama unless he can prove status as a ”Natural Born Citizen” as the constitution and federal statues demand and define.


In another unrelated action, though also aimed at forcing Obama to release proof or step down, 24 potential Electoral College electors are filing action Monday morning in court also demanding proof. A call is herein being issued to any elector in any state, especially democrat electors who would like to join that effort.  Electors interested in adding their name to this lawsuit can contact Mr. Marquis who will put you in contact with the attorney handling that case.
