Sandy Rios: House Should Expel Muslim Congressman For 'Islamic Terrorist Connections'
SUBMITTED BY Brian Tashman on Friday, 1/16/2015 1:00 pm
According to Rios, “the president prefers, defers to the Islamic world, he defers to the Islamic extremists in the Muslim world.”
Rios then launched into a tirade against Rep. André Carson, repeating her contention that the House should ban the Indiana Democrat from serving on the House Intelligence Committee for the serious crime of being Muslim. After false claiming that two groups that donated to Carson, the Islamic Society of North America and the Council on American-Islamic Relations, are tied to terrorists, Rios said that Carson should be booted out of Congress for “his terrorist connections, his Islamic terrorist connections.”
“This man, André Carson, does not belong on the House Intelligence Committee, he doesn’t even belong in Congress, this is disgraceful,” she said. “André Carson is a dangerous person.”
An incensed Rios then returned to attacking Obama for “radically transforming the United States of America” through immigration.

Muslim Man Who Saved Lives at Kosher Market Siege Awarded French Citizenshipby Tina Nguyen | 10:43 am, January 15th, 2015
Lassana Bathily, the Muslim man who saved 15 lives during last week’s terror attacks in France, will be naturalized in a public ceremony next week after nearly 300,000 people signed a petition demanding he be given citizenship.
In addition, he will be given the Legion d’Honneur, France’s highest award of merit.
Bathily, an immigrant from Mali and an employee of Paris’s Hypercache market, managed to hide a dozen people — seven Jews among them — in the supermarket’s walk-in freezer when Amedy Coulibaly stormed the market last Friday, killing four people and holding dozens hostage in exchange for the freedom of his associates, Cherif and Said Kouachi, wanted for the Charlie Hebdo massacre.
What’s more, Bathily managed to escape the building using a fire escape and, after convincing the police he wasn’t an accomplice, gave them crucial logistical information about the building that eventually helped them storm the market, kill Coulibaly, and rescue the hostages.
His quick thinking was praised by French President Francois Hollande and Israeli Prime MinisterBenjamin Netanyahu, who publicly thanked him by name during a speech in a Parisian synagogue.
According to RTL, Bathily had filed for naturalization in July of 2014, and the Ministry of the Interior fast-tracked his request. A massive petition circulating on Change.org certainly helped: within days of being posted, the petition garnered nearly 300,000 signatures.
Bathily, noted in the media for his humility, will be given the award in a naturalization ceremony on Tuesday, January 20th in Paris.
