    And no one noticed any of this when he was hired?


    Via Fox News:


    An American Airlines mechanic accused of sabotaging a plane in July reportedly told arresting agents he had an “evil side,” a nefarious persona prosecutors sought to expose Wednesday as they presented alleged evidence of his Islamist sympathies — and aspirations — at a bail hearing in Miami.


    Prosecutors said Abdul-Majeed Marouf Ahmed Alani allegedly displayed support for ISIS by making statements about wishing Allah would use “divine powers” to harm non-Muslims and sharing ISIS videos on his cellphone — which he allowed the FBI to search. One of the videos showed a person being shot in the head, according to prosecutors.


    Federal investigators said they also learned that Alani lied about taking a trip to Iraq in March to visit his brother and also sent $700 to someone in Iraq. Alani allegedly told an American Airlines co-worker in June his brother was kidnapped and became a member of the terrorist organization.


    Alani, 60, worked as a mechanic for the airline when he allegedly sabotaged a Nassau-bound Boeing 737 with 150 passengers and crew aboard at Miami International Airport over stalled labor negotiations.

    Threatened by Social Credit Score, Christians in China Replace Ten Commandments With Xi Jinping Quotes


    Chinese Communist Party wants to “become God”



    China is forcing Christian churches to replace the Ten Commandments with quotes from Chinese President Xi Jinping by threatening to ban congregations from work and travel.



    The Chinese Communist Party is trying to “sinicize” Christianity in China which is officially atheist, according to a journalist who covers religious liberty in the country.


    “Implementing its ultimate goal of becoming the sole deity revered in China, the CCP continues to smother the Christian doctrine, replacing it with the party line,” he wrote. “The Ten Commandments are the basis of Christian moral code, an essential part of believers’ life throughout the world.”


    “But in atheist China, they have become an eyesore for the country’s dictator, and are eliminated from places of worship.”


    In particular, the Ten Commandments have been removed from every Three-Self protestant church near Luoyang, and some of the churches were even shut down for refusing to do so.



    The enforcement is aided by China’s social credit score, which scores citizens by their government compliance – and citizens with poor scores are unable to work and travel.


    “Some congregations have been threatened to be blacklisted by the government, meaning that their travels will be restricted and schooling and future employment of their offspring will be impeded if they refused to overhaul their churches according to the current national policies,” the journalist reported. “Disobeying the orders means opposition to the Communist Party, officials claimed.”


    One of the Xi Jinping quotes is from 2015 when the party leader said China’s “religious thought, doctrines, and teachings” need to conform “with the needs of the progress of the times.”

    Self Sufficient? ...or dependent on others?

    Chick-fil-A employees wade through flood waters to deliver food to stranded Houston drivers



    Chick-fil-A employees waded through flood waters, brought by Tropical Depression Imelda, to deliver food to stranded Houston drivers.
    Ryan Anthony is one of several drivers stuck on northbound I-45 just north of 610.


    He said employees at a nearby Chick-fil-A walked through the water and delivered food to the drivers stuck on the highway.

    House Committee Passes Bill Barring Hate Crimes Convicts from Owning Firearms



    The House Judiciary Committee passed new legislation overnight which would prohibit individuals convicted of misdemeanor hate crimes from owning firearms. The Disarm Hate Act is one among a flurry of new congressional proposals that have gained traction in the wake of several high-profile mass shootings in recent weeks.


    The bill now heads to the floor of the House of Representatives for a vote before the full chamber.


    "The link between gun violence and bigotry is clear. Convicted hate criminals are a danger to our society. They should not be allowed to legally own guns," Representative David Cicilline, who sponsored the bill, said in a press release.

    "I'm pleased that we are sending this bill to the House floor. Democrats are taking action to save lives. Until Republicans stop blocking these bills, the blood of nearly 40,000 Americans each year will continue to stain their hands."


    The committee also signed off on a pair of other gun control items, tackling areas of concern for activists who have pushed for tighter regulation of firearm possession. One bill would outlaw high capacity magazines, and another would encourage states to pass "red flag" laws, which allow courts to temporarily confiscate guns from suspected violent actors.


    But the application of this bill, should it pass the House, pass the Senate and be signed into law by President Donald Trump—an uncertain prospect in itself—may not reach perpetrators of hate in various parts of the country.


    More!



    And as you know a "hate crime" is anything they say it is.
