    Thomas Jefferson = OWNER OF KORAN

    Got to hurt the righties that one of their heroes owned a bible:

    In 1765, eleven years before composing the Declaration of Independence, Thomas Jefferson bought a Qur’an. This marked only the beginning of his lifelong interest in Islam, and he would go on to acquire numerous books on Middle Eastern languages, history, and travel, taking extensive notes on Islam as it relates to English common law. Jefferson sought to understand Islam notwithstanding his personal disdain for the faith, a sentiment prevalent among his Protestant contemporaries in England and America. But unlike most of them, by 1776 Jefferson could imagine Muslims as future citizens of his new country.

    He also wrote his own version of the Bible.

    KFIA you say

    NRA supporters are total mental jobs.

    From what I have read President Obama owns a collection of guns, shoots the guns and is a member of the NRA. I'm assuming this is fact I'm not finding anything to disprove it. Obama is in favor of American citizens having the right to own a gun.

    <-Obama Joins the NRA


    By Brad Kozak on April 1, 2011
    DATELINE: WASHINGTON D.C., April 1, 2011 – President Barack Obama has joined the NRA. In a carefully-worded statement that will be released to the mainstream media later today, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney stated that the President is now a Life Member in good standing of the National Rifle Association. “The President has always supported Americans’ right to keep and bear arms,” Carney said. “While there are have been significant policy differences between the Obama administration and the NRA, the President sees this move as a reflection of his desire to seek consensus on a controversial issue for the benefit of all Americans.” Carney also said his boss would also be joining The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, the National Shooting Sports Foundation, PETA and the Sierra Club. When asked for a statement on this stunning turn of events, NRA Vice President Wayne LaPierre said . . .
    “The President has been somewhat at odds with the goals of the NRA, specifically that all citizens should be free to exercise their God-given, Second Amendment rights to gun ownership and self-defense.” LaPierre continued, “At the same time, the President has refused to heed calls for a renewal of the so-called assault weapons ban, signed legislation that allows Americans to carry guns in out national parks and on Amtrak trains, provided they give Amtrak two day’s notice and store the guns locked and unloaded in the baggage compartment.”
    Chris Cox, head of the NRA’s Washington lobbying organization was unwilling to be quoted on the record on this stunning development. Under the Freedom of Information Act, TTAG has obtained transcripts of some of the meetings between the NRA and the White House that shed light on a decision that some would say is the seventh sign of the approaching apocalypse, or at the very least, proof positive that Hell has frozen over.
    The transcripts suggest that the change in the President’s position began at the so-called “Beer Summit” where Obama interjected himself in a dispute between a black college professor and a white police officer. After reviewing outtakes from the press pool, the NRA noticed that the President doesn’t, as the saying goes, hold his liquor very well. This knowledge opened up a new direction for a strategic gambit that became known within the NRA’s political action committee as “Operation Down-Low.”
    Operation Down-Low began over a friendly game of Horse at the White House, between members of the Fox News White House detail, the Secret Service and the President. After several beers and bumps, the President was encouraged to consider the option to offer an olive branch to the right and join the NRA. The following morning, it was made clear to the President that he had indeed bet Fox News correspondent Wendell Goler that if he lost, he would join the NRA.
    Goler won the game by three points. While the President strongly protested, NRA negotiators pointed out that there was video of both the bet and the game itself, and that the President would lose his core constituency of black voters if word got out that he not only welched on a bet, but did so with a fellow homeboy.
    NRA-ILA head Chris Cox was willing to comment on the rumor that Mike Huckabee had been asked to step aside as keynote speaker for the NRA Annual Convention’s Celebration of American Values Freedom Experience in favor of the President. “While we would love to have a sitting President speak at the conference, it’s simply too big a security risk,” Cox stated. “We have a strict policy of no guns at the Convention, the Exhibits, and the keynotes, we explained to the President’s security detail that NRA members are not our concern here.”
    He continued, “Every serial killer and assassin in the United States over the last 100 years has been a far-Left loon. While we have faith in our own membership and fully realize they are law-abiding, gun-owning citizens, we simply can’t be responsible for what might happen, should some Leftie wing-nut decide to take a pop at the President during the keynote. Even though we and our members would be innocent, all parties acknowledged that the mainstream media would crucify us, and not let little things like facts get in the way of their story.”
    Cox concluded, “We told the President that we would not invite him, because as much as we’ve disagreed with him in the past, none of us want to see him dead. Plus, the thought of “President Biden” scares the ever-lovin’ crap out of us.”
    The President plans to address the nation on his membership later this evening. While he will be a member, the NRA spokesperson we contacted told us we should expect no change in White House policy regarding guns. “Just because he’s a member of an organization, doesnt’ mean he’s one of us,” stated an NRA spokesperson on condition of anonymity. “Look at it this way…he’s so busy playing ‘community organizer’ for Libya, we don’t think he’ll have the bandwith to screw around with the 2nd Amendment now, but if he does, we’re ready for him.”​->

    Tulip is using what source?

    With over 64,261 Facebook likes, Weekly World News is another talboid-style faux-news site whose subject matter alone should tip you off whether or not its real news or fake news. In its heyday, WWN would sit on grocery check-out lines across America with other similarly crafted rags, such as The National Enquirer (only less credible, if you can believe that). It was rare that an Elvis sighting or an alien abduction or a Sasquatchean lovechild revelation went uncovered by WWN.

    Of course it eludes the idiot as to WHY he owned a Korn.

    I own one too. It doesn't mean I respect that death cult.

    Re: Thomas Jefferson = OWNER OF KORAN

    Here ya go Rodney:

    It began before Jefferson was president. He was then the American ambassador to France, and he was disturbed by what was happening in the Mediterranean. For centuries, the "Barbary Coast Pirates" had been raiding ships passing through the Mediterranean. These were not "pirates" in the sense that we usually think of them. They weren't rogue agents acting independently. They worked for the governments of the North African countries. They would steal the ship and return to their countries, confiscating the booty aboard the ship, most of which added to the wealth of the Islamic state. They also took the ship's crew members captive and ransomed the ones they could. Most of that money also went to the Islamic government. The crew who could not be ransomed were sold into slavery.

    In addition, these "pirates" randomly raided towns on the coasts of Europe and captured people, bringing them back to North Africa to ransom or sell into slavery. They even came so far as the shores of America to capture settlers, to bring them back to Africa to ransom or sell. They especially prized young women and children who could be used as concubines or made into eunuchs. Over a million Europeans and Americans were sold into slavery during the 200-year reign of the Muslim "Barbary Coast" rulers.

    Many European countries wanted this to stop, of course, to which the leaders of the North African countries replied, "All you have to do is pay us a certain amount of money annually, and we will not attack ships from your country." Many European countries paid the tribute. It was cheaper than going to war. Of course, that was a short-term, self-defeating solution, since paying the tribute made the North African Muslim countries more powerful and more capable of terror, plunder, and mayhem.

    The United States was paying this tribute also. This bothered Jefferson. It just so happened that while he was an ambassador in France, Jefferson met with John Adams (then the American ambassador to Britain) and together the two men met with the ambassador from Tripoli (one of the North African Muslim pirate countries). Jefferson and Adams sat down to talk with this man. They asked him why Tripoli attacked ships. Why attack the United States? They had no previous interactions. Why the hostility? Why did they choose America as an enemy?

    The Tripoli Muslim ambassador was very straightforward. He said, basically, "That's what we do. We are commanded to do so by Allah." Jefferson later wrote that the Tripoli ambassador told him, "It was written in their Koran that all nations which had not acknowledged the Prophet were sinners, whom it was the right and duty of the faithful to plunder and enslave; and that every mussulman (Muslim) who was slain in this warfare was sure to go to Paradise."

    Completely taken aback by this revelation, Jefferson decided to look into the matter further, and did the one thing everyone should do: He read the Koran. He learned what Islam was about.


    And when he became president, he expanded and then mobilized the United States Navy to protect American ships from Muslim piracy and then sent Marines to the shores of Tripoli, who soundly defeated the Muslim warriors. This brought an end to the "Barbary Coast Pirates." This was the first foreign war fought by the U.S. and military aggressiveness of Islamic countries remained contained and weakened for over a century

    President John Kennedy was a life long member of the NRA even if Obama isn't. lol

    Jefferson had an interest in religion and he knew the Islamic extremist was a threat. He studied Christianity and sounds like he did his research on Islam. Jefferson was not a Muslim.
