The Rico Act and Islam

Rico Act

Most mosques in America are Saudi-funded and stocked with Islamic supremacist Saudi literature. Ask mosque leaders, if they aren't forthcoming about the sources of their funding, what they have to hide. Call for funding transparency. If you can prove Saudi funding ...

The RICO Act says: Under RICO, a person who is a member of an enterprise that has committed any two of 35 crimes—27 federal crimes and 8 state crimes—within a 10-year period can be charged with racketeering. Those found guilty of racketeering can be fined up to $25,000 and sentenced to 20 years in prison per racketeering count. In addition, the racketeer must forfeit all ill-gotten gains and interest in any business gained through a pattern of "racketeering activity." RICO also permits a private individual harmed by the actions of such an enterprise to file a civil suit; if successful, the individual can collect treble damages.

Here are the crimes that are listed under RICO:

Under the law, racketeering activity means:

* Any violation of state statutes against gambling, murder, kidnapping, extortion, arson, robbery, bribery, dealing in obscene matter, or dealing in a controlled substance or listed chemical (as defined in the Controlled Substances Act);
* Any act of bribery, counterfeiting, theft, embezzlement, fraud, dealing in obscene matter, obstruction of justice, slavery, racketeering, gambling, money laundering, commission of murder-for-hire, and several other offenses covered under the Federal criminal code (Title 18);
* Embezzlement of union funds;
* Bankruptcy fraud or securities fraud;
* Drug trafficking; long-term and elaborate drug networks can also be prosecuted using the Continuing Criminal Enterprise Statute;
* Money laundering and related offenses;
* Bringing in, aiding or assisting aliens in illegally entering the country (if the action was for financial gain);
* Acts of terrorism.

More on RICO:

Violations of the RICO laws can be alleged civil lawsuit cases or for criminal charges. In these instances charges can be brought against individuals or corporations in retaliation for said individuals or corporations working with law enforcement. Further, charges can also be brought against individuals or corporations who have sued or filed criminal charges against a defendant.

Also a SCOTUS definition of just what a "religion" is is coming to a head. A religion cannot use that status to violate other laws. In the SCOTUS precedent cases, the definition of "religion" revolves around BELIEF, which are solely self-imposed. Islam imposes its system laws on believers and others whether they are willing or not (even killing them). This does NOT fit in with SCOTUS precedent as to what defines a "religion".
Religion is a deeply-held set of personal beliefs. Nobody has a problem with that, UNTIL it overlaps with given laws.
The Ballard case involved the conviction of organizers of the I Am movement on grounds that they defrauded people by falsely representing that their members had supernatural powers to heal people with incurable illnesses. The Supreme Court held that the jury, in determining the line between the free exercise of religion and the punishable offense of obtaining property under False Pretenses, should not decide whether the claims of the I Am members were actually true, only whether the members honestly believed them to be true, thus qualifying the group as a religion under the Supreme Court's broad definition. This did not deny them the ability to exercise their beliefs, but it did not protect them from stealing the money of others under laws governing fraud.
