Pennsylvania Rep. Answers Questions on Bill Opposing Foreign Law

An update on this post that brought more of the pro-sharia Muslims and their legions of useful idiots out of hiding. Odd, they don’t want sharia law but are willing to oppose banning sharia all the way to the supreme court.

Notice how the author of this piece, Randy LoBasso, titles his piece the ‘Anti-Sharia Law’ Bill – as if that were a bad thing – and despite the first answer the Rep clearly explains the bill opposes all foreign law and doesn’t mention sharia. LoBasso also fails to mention that CAIR is an unindicted co-conspirator to the largest terror funding case in U.S. history, is banned by the FBI, has had tax status revoked by the IRS, and had numerous leaders arrested and deported for terror related crimes. His bias is more evident in his original piece.

That’s how the media rolls – it’s up to everyday Americans to stand up and call them out and support those who defend America. via Philly Now, Q&A: Rep. RoseMarie Swanger, who Introduced the ‘Anti-Sharia Law’ Bill

In Philadelphia there’s been a lot of fervor over this bill [HB 2029] being introduced. At a press conference hosted by the Council for American-Islamic Relations held last week, everyone criticized Bill 2029. That was the point. But I’ve also talked to people in favor of such legislation.

Yes, I’ve heard from more people in favor than I’ve heard against. I know the Islamic group is saying that I’ve targeted Sharia Law. But if you look at my bill or read my bill, there’s nothing in it about Sharia Law. It just says ‘foreign law’ and I also have quite a few exceptions in my bill. One of them is, it shall not infringe upon religious freedom. I’m talking specifically about our civil and criminal court system here in our country. My main concern is rights for women because I know that under some foreign law, women certainly don’t have the rights that they have here in our country, under our constitution. So, I know, I want to make sure in our courts those rights are protected and everyone gets the freedom and privileges afforded to them and the rights of the U.S. and state constitution. It’s really nothing more than that. I think people are reading things into it that just aren’t there.

I know you said earlier that the taking on Sharia Law is not your intention—

–not solely, but of course it would be included, since it’s foreign law. Sure, but I certainly didn’t target that or mean that’s the only thing it’s going to apply to.

–and one of the people I talked to said he believes based on court decisions in other states, Islamic law is, he called it ‘creeping’ — slowly taking over and getting sympathetic judges to rule in their favor. Would you say there’s evidence of that happening and was that part of your intention at all?

Well, I’d been working with a group called ALAC and they did give me information about a case in Florida. And I don’t know if I have my facts straight, but it was a case in Florida that was in family court that concerned child custody, which I mentioned. And then I think there was one in New Jersey recently. That I’m not clear of, but somebody said it was protection from abuse. It involved domestic violence. Again, I don’t know the details of it, but I know that judges in those two states did take Sharia Law into account and did use it to base their decision.

Why do you think that’s been happening?

Why? I couldn’t tell you that. It boggles my mind that a judge wouldn’t base his or her rulings on our constitution and our law. I can’t speak for those judges. I have no idea what they’re thinking. No idea.

One lawyer who’s a representative for CAIR said she’s willing to fight this law all the way to the Supreme Court.

OK. Well, what’s she doing in other states? (laughs) There are other states that have also adopted this. This was not my bright idea. I mean, she’s got quite a few states where she’s got to fight this. Because I mean—and I don’t even know if it will pass. Who knows? But it wouldn’t only be here in Pennsylvania. She has that right, but how ridiculous. This is America. Don’t we follow American law? I’ve even asked people who’ve emailed me with their–they’re reading all kinds of horrible hypotheticals, and I ended up by saying, ‘If you don’t want American law in our courts, what country’s law do you think we should follow?’ You know? It just boggles my mind. This is America. We should follow American law. We should treat everyone with the respect and the freedoms that they have in our country.

Her concern was that she thinks these laws are a charade in order to take on the Muslim population.

Oh God. She’s entitled to her opinion. Let’s just leave it at that.

Another person, a Jewish rabbi, said that she thinks these laws are reminiscent of Germany in the 1930s in which Jewish law was constantly criticized and denounced up in court…

Are you ready to take on critics who are saying these things about this law that you’ve proposed?

I’m not afraid to stand up for our country and our rights and freedoms. Sure, I’ll take them on. I feel a duty to stand up for our rights and citizens. Yeah, I’m ready to take them on.

Read it all, then send her a message of support, here, including a link to our posts on Pennsylvania. It’s not clear she quite understands sharia law or how it is currently impacting Americans.

  1. SCREW THE FEMALE LAWYER FOR CAIR!!! PUT HER NAME OUT FOR ALL PATRIOTIC AMERICANS TO SEE SO WE CAN ATTACK HER AND SHOVE HER INTO OBLIVIUM. We dont need any more DICK HEADS LIKE HER OPERATING IN THE AMERICAN COURTS!!! LOCK AND LOAD.

    • It is very simple;USA AND CONSTITUTIONAL LAW OVERULES ALL OTHER LAWS………THIS IS A SECULAR COUNTRY;IN THE EVENT IT CEASES TO BECOME A SECULAR COUNTRY;IT IS INDICATIVE THAT A REV0LUTION OF SORTS HAS TAKEN PLACE WITH THE SECULAR CONSTITUTIONAL GOVERNMENT BEING REPLACED WITH ANOTHER FORM ……….ABLE BODIED AND ABLE MINDED AMERICANS ARE THEREFORE CALLED TO ACTION IN SUCH CASE.

  2. Thank you very much for posting this, this coverage was completely absent from the Philadelphia Inquirer and the Philly Daily News. Incredible.

    The weekly papers have covered it, but only with hysterically pro-sharia in every case language as though this were strictly a freedom of religion issue. I hope you post this on CS if only to out the far-out attempt to block this critically needed bill:

  3. Shariah law is the ANTI-Constitution. ANY Muslim/Moslem who come to America who attempts to convert, conform or translate anyone or any part of our government should be deported immediately if not prosecuted for sedition and failure to assimilate. Treason is treason is treason…our FOUNDERS set up death for this violation (though it is not the case now) for this very reason. Undermining our laws to conform to another standard is a violation of our Constitution. OUR SILENCE is our CONSENT. SPEAK now…before they keep you from doing so. IT IS NOW OR NEVER. Do you children and their freedoms and liberties matter to you…??????

    • Which is why I characterize this clash of civilizations as one between COLONISTS (read moslemites) and NATIVES (read non-moslemite citizens). The islamical people have the idea in their head they are doing a good thing in eradicating individual rights because mohammad’s god allah told them so. This is one consequence of having as a life’s goal walking around a black rock somewhere in the desert.

  4. Why are we even having to debate something like this? United States Laws for United States Courts. Common sense. It should have already been made into law way before if we don’t have enough common sense to think about and follow it. The forefathers probably never dreamed we would get so stupid as to allow foreign laws in our courts. Boggles the mind. The 2006 movie ” Idiocracy ” is coming true right before our very eyes.

  5. The issue of Sharia law is NOT a religious issue as the Muslims would like us to believe. They have to hide its real intent and what it really is, a Theocracy, from the people in order to garnish support somehow by making people believe its an affront against OUR first Amendment rights. IT has NOTHING to do with our First Amendment and everything to do with a total violation of our Constitution and Bill of Rights. . IT( Islam) is a Theocracy, the tenets of which are totally incompatible with our republic and OUR laws. Therefore, everyone should realize it for what it is and act accordingly. Sharia law or any consideration of it should be made illegal in any civil, criminal or any other type litigation. IT should not be allowed even in the minutest area or issue. One of the Rights Islamist can exercise if they don’t like the idea of us not accepting Sharia Law, is their uninhibited right to MOVE to a country of their choosing that does..

  6. Tell the muslims this – – – – When the muslim countries recognise and honor the US Constitution and our laws we will consider doing the same for sharia..
