Somalis Given Access to Sensitive Information


Not only has Obama set the stage for Islamic terrorists to come to America as refugees, it appears the Obama Administration has allowed the “Department of Homeland Security has given Somalis “community engagement tours,” including security briefings, in secured areas at least three major U.S. airports – Los Angeles, Minneapolis, and Columbus, Ohio.”

Somalis Given Access to Sensitive Information

 

U.S. Customs, Homeland Security Records Reveal Somalis Given Security Briefings, ‘Community Engagement Tours’ in Secured Areas at Major U.S. Airports

(Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch today released 31 pages of records from U.S. Customs and Border Protection revealing that the Department of Homeland Security has given Somalis “community engagement tours,” including security briefings, in secured areas at least three major U.S. airports – Los Angeles, Minneapolis, and Columbus, Ohio.

 

The records came in response to a May 2016 Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request, which sought records, documents and communications regarding a “Community Engagement Tour” in Minneapolis-St. Paul Airport on February 18, 2016.

 

The briefings provided to the Somali groups were so sensitive that in 14 instances the agency redacted portions of the records under Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) exemption (B)(7)(e), the law-enforcement “risk circumvention” exemption, which reads:

 

Exemption 7(E) of the Freedom of Information Act affords protection to all law enforcement information that would disclose techniques and procedures for law enforcement investigations or prosecutions, or would disclose guidelines for law enforcement investigations or prosecutions if such disclosure could reasonably be expected to risk circumvention of the law.

 

In another instance, Customs and Border Protection exempted under (B)(7)(e) a portion of a February 16, 2016, “Minute by Minute Agenda” provided during a tour/briefing of the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport (MSP). The material that was withheld from Judicial Watch as too law-enforcement sensitive – but provided in full to the Somali group – included a section entitled: “TSA Overview — Processing [Redacted].”  The invitees were provided briefings of the Global Entry system, APC [Automated Passport Control] system, secondary screening procedures, baggage-screening procedures and given tours of the holding cells/interview rooms.

 

Notes from the February Minneapolis St. Paul Airport tour include: “Current CBP and TSA job vacancies were discussed. Attendees responded with requests for DHS outreach efforts during Somali community events to further advertise these positions to interested individuals.”

 

The newly released records also reveal:

 

  • In addition to the Minneapolis Airport tours/briefings given to Somalis during 2014 and 2015 – and first revealed by Judicial Watch in August 2016– tours of U.S. airports and security briefings also have been provided to other groups at airports in Los Angeles and Columbus, Ohio: “Once we agree on the dates we will select the time based on prayer schedules. Another idea could be the roundtable to take place at the airport after the tour. We have done that before in LA and Columbus and it worked well both times”.

 

  • The timing of the Minneapolis Airport tour given to a group of Somalis in February 2016 was scheduled between 6-8 pm because it would “accommodate prayer times well”

 

  • During the “annual” tour, federal authorities granted excursions of the facility’s “secure areas.” It is also noted that two parties in the previous year “did not pass vetting.”

 

  • The invitation extended to the Somalis for the Minneapolis Airport tour addressed them as “Dear Colleague,” and promised “walking people through CBP’s process, walking people through TSA’s process” and provide “a step-by-step tour of our operations, designed to offer a greater understanding of airport processes and procedures.”

 

Eight senior ranking Homeland Security and Customs officials were tasked with accompanying and briefing the Somalis on the February 18, 2016, Minneapolis Airport tour, including the Minneapolis Area Port Director, the Assistant Port Director, the Watch Commander, a Homeland Security Civil Rights and Civil Liberties Senior Policy Advisor (flown in from Washington), the TSA Federal Security Director and TSA Deputy Federal Security Director.

 

The documents show Customs officials reporting that one of the invited individuals had given “CBP Chicago a hard time” following the last tour and noted three of the invitees had had investigations against them, which had since been closed.  Another invitee had an active investigation pending.

 

“Logically, information that is too sensitive to provide to Judicial Watch and the public should not have been given to a ‘community engagement tour,’” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.  “The U.S. government has been aware for years that Minnesota is a hotbed of Somali terrorist-cell activity. The behind-the-scenes tours and security briefings of the Minneapolis airport very well could have created a threat to public safety.”

 

In August 2016, the Judicial Watch blog, Corruption Chronicles, reported on the Muslim airport tour story: “The Obama administration gave Somali Muslims behind-the-scenes tours at a major U.S. airport after the group complained to Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson about feeling harassed and profiled, government records obtained by Judicial Watch reveal. The special security tours not offered to any other group occurred at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport after Department of Homeland Security roundtable meetings with local Somali leaders to obtain feedback for ‘modifications to practices that would allow for operations to be more culturally sensitive.’”

Take action now to voice your strong opposition
to any additional refugee funding

 

We need you to take action now! 

Today, September 15th a group of federal resettlement contractors will be dropping off postcards to all of our elected representatives,demanding of an additional 200,000 un-vetted, third world refugees be admitted into unsuspecting American communities!

Predictably, these pro-refugee organizations have almost no concrete responsibility for the refugees they bring in, or the security risks they pose. After 4 months, the “sponsoring” organization doesn’t even need to know where the un-vetted refugee is living!

These federal contractors have disguised their financial incentive for additional refugees from the public, under the cloak of their “non-profit” status. In reality, these so called “non-profits” are receiving an absurd amount of money for each refugee they settle, courtesy of who else?You!

Think of it, the Obama Administration is taking money you worked for out of your pocket, and using it to not only endanger you, but permanently transform this nation beyond repair.

Further, each year, the U.S. Congress is directed by law to hold hearings on the refugee resettlement issue prior to funding this program.  The new fiscal year (2017) commences on October 1, 2016and as of now, NO HEARINGS HAVE BEEN SCHEDULED.  This is unacceptable.

What your country needs from you is simple, yet powerful.

 

Please email your federal legislators NOW and tell them how categorically opposed you are to ANY funding towards ANY additional refugees and demand that they abide by the law and hold hearings on plans to fund any refugee resettlement in fiscal year 2017!

Congress has the power of the purse and it’s about time they used it, don’t you think?

We hope that you were able to reflect this past weekend on why your activism is so essential to our survival. It is hard to believe 15 years has passed since our nation received that fateful wake-up call from hell. But remember, “never forget” is more than just remembrance, it’s taking action!

Potential Ways to Defeat ISIS and Assad


John R. Houk

© October 22, 2015

An email sent by ACT for America highlights the reality that ISIS (ISIL, IS or Daesh) uses oil fields they have captured to finance their terrorist war machine that targets non-Muslims (primarily Christians and Yazidis) for slaughter, rape, pillaging and dhimmitude. The email links to a very informative article entitled, “Isis Inc: How Oil Fuels the Jihadi Terrorists” co-written by Erika Solomon, Guy Chazan and Sam Jones originally sourced at the Financial Times but cross posted on the ACT for America website.

The ACT for America email introduction to the entitled article is a pitch for Americans to support the House Bill Fuel Choice for American Prosperity and Security Act of 2015 (HR 2418). After reading HR 2418 that Bill actually has little to do with targeting ISIS’ oil financing of their terrorism agenda to establish an Islamic Caliphate. The Bill focuses on providing incentives to power vehicles with alternative resources other than fossil fuels that would reduce the emissions of greenhouse gases that pollutes the air we breathe.

ACT for America’s support for HR 2418 as a tool that would lessen the marketability of ISIS oil misses a short term targeting of ISIS. The thing for me is that it seems any actual effect on ISIS oil production would occur way down the road on any timeline hurting an ISIS oil economy. Apparently if the Bill became law the standards would not go into effect until 2018. HOWEVER on a long term basis in time, the design of HR 2418 would affect America’s dependence on foreign oil from nations that might have a contrary agenda to the USA’s National Security and national economy.

The FT article suggests the best way to slow down ISIS terrorism is to demolish any ISIS infrastructure – especially oil production – that provides material support for the existence of ISIS. I don’t have a problem with a long term plan to stifle American dependence on foreign oil in our economy; however to begin placing nails in ISIS’s coffin in a quicker time frame, it would be more advisable to attack any infrastructure controlled by ISIS.

America should provide air support to the Syrian rebels that do not have an immediate Radical Islamic agenda (I’m no friend of Islam in any form because of its antichrist/anti-Jew emphasis in the religion’s Quran and other revered writings [Hadith & Sira]) AND begin destroying the ISIS infrastructure and the Jew-hating Assad’s Syrian infrastructure.

Thanks to Obama Foreign Policy fecklessness the Russians have entered the Syria-Iraq-ISIS conflict to the favor of Assad’s Syrian dictatorship who is an ally of Iran, Hezbollah terrorists and probably Hamas terrorists. This means providing direct air support to protect the non-Islamist Syrian rebels will undoubtedly place America and Russia in a crisis that could be a situation comparable to the Kennedy-Khrushchev Cuban Missile Crisis that placed the USA and Russia on the brink of nuclear war in the early 1960s.

We all know who would blink in an Obama-Putin faceoff. Thus if such a crisis of supporting diverging allies in the conflict in Syria-Iraq-ISIS under Obama’s watch I am fairly confident that Russia will turn that region over to a cabal of Hezbollah, Assad and Iran. Guess which ally of America this affects the most in the Middle East? That would be Israel!

So if or when Obama a Middle Eastern chunk of land to Putin’s Russian designs, what do you think Obama will do to protect our ally Israel?

I think Obama will do his best to sell out Israel before he leaves Office in January 2017 making difficult for a new President to set things aright to reestablish American military superiority in the region without probable occurrence of a global war igniting. God help America and our exceptionalism that makes the world a safer place for Americans and our allies.

Isis Inc: How Oil Fuels the Jihadi Terrorists

On the outskirts of al-Omar oilfield in eastern Syria, with warplanes flying overhead, a line of trucks stretches for 6km. Some drivers wait for a month to fill up with crude.

Falafel stalls and tea shops have sprung up to cater to the drivers, such is the demand for oil. Traders sometimes leave their trucks unguarded for weeks, waiting for their turn.

This is the land of Isis, the jihadi organisation in control of swaths of Syrian and Iraqi territory. The trade in oil has been declared a prime target by the international military coalition fighting the group. And yet it goes on, undisturbed.

Oil is the black gold that funds Isis’ black flag — it fuels its war machine, provides electricity and gives the fanatical jihadis critical leverage against their neighbours.

But more than a year after US President Barack Obama launched an international coalition to fight Isis, the bustling trade at al-Omar and at least eight other fields has come to symbolise the dilemma the campaign faces: how to bring down the “caliphate” without destabilising the life of the estimated 10m civilians in areas under Isis control, and punishing the west’s allies?

The resilience of Isis, and the weakness of the US-led campaign, have given Russia a pretext to launch its own, bold intervention in Syria.

Despite all these efforts, dozens of interviews with Syrian traders and oil engineers as well as western intelligence officials and oil experts reveal a sprawling operation almost akin to a state oil company that has grown in size and expertise despite international attempts to destroy it.

Minutely managed, Isis’ oil company actively recruits skilled workers, from engineers to trainers and managers.

Syria-Iraq ISIS map

Estimates by local traders and engineers put crude production in Isis-held territory at about 34,000-40,000 bpd. The oil is sold at the wellhead for between $20 and $45 a barrel, earning the militants an average of $1.5m a day.

“It’s a situation that makes you laugh and cry,” said one Syrian rebel commander in Aleppo, who buys diesel from Isis areas even as his forces fight the group on the front lines. “But we have no other choice, and we are a poor man’s revolution. Is anyone else offering to give us fuel?”

Oil as a strategic weapon

Isis’ oil strategy has been long in the making. Since the group emerged on the scene in Syria in 2013, long before they reached Mosul in Iraq, the jihadis saw oil as a crutch for their vision for an Islamic state. The group’s shura council identified it as fundamental for the survival of the insurgency and, more importantly, to finance their ambition to create a caliphate.

Most of the oil Isis controls is in Syria’s oil-rich east, where it created a foothold in 2013, shortly after withdrawing from the north-west — an area of strategic importance but with no oil. These bridgeheads were then used to consolidate control over the whole of eastern Syria after the fall of Mosul in 2014.

When it pushed through northern Iraq and took over Mosul, Isis also seized the Ajil and Allas fields in north-eastern Iraq’s Kirkuk province. The very day of its takeover, locals say, militants secured the fields and engineers were sent in to begin operations and ship the oil to market.

“They were ready, they had people there in charge of the financial side, they had technicians that adjusted the filling and storage process,” said a local sheikh from the town of Hawija, near Kirkuk. “They brought hundreds of trucks in from Kirkuk and Mosul and they started to extract the oil and export it.” An average of 150 trucks, he added, were filled daily, with each containing about $10,000-worth of oil. Isis lost the fields to the Iraqi army in April but made an estimated $450m from them in the 10 months it controlled the area.

While al-Qaeda, the global terrorist network, depended on donations from wealthy foreign sponsors, Isis has derived its financial strength from its status as monopoly producer of an essential commodity consumed in vast quantities throughout the area it controls. Even without being able to export, it can thrive because it has a huge captive market in Syria and Iraq.

Syrian Rebel Quote on buying ISIS oil

Indeed, diesel and petrol produced in Isis areas are not only consumed in territory the group controls but in areas that are technically at war with it, such as Syria’s rebel-held north: the region is dependent on the jihadis’ fuel for its survival. Hospitals, shops, tractors and machinery used to pull victims out of rubble run on generators that are powered by Isis oil.

“At any moment, the diesel can be cut. No diesel — Isis knows our life is completely dead,” says one oil trader who comes from rebel-held Aleppo each week to buy fuel and spoke to the Financial Times by telephone.

A national oil company

Isis’ strategy has rested on projecting the image of a state in the making, and it is attempting to run its oil industry by mimicking the ways of national oil corporations. According to Syrians who say Isis tried to recruit them, the group headhunts engineers, offering competitive salaries to those with the requisite experience, and encourages prospective employees to apply to its human resources department.

A roving committee of its specialists checks up on fields, monitors production and interviews workers about operations. It also appoints Isis members who have worked at oil companies in Saudi Arabia or elsewhere in the Middle East as “emirs”, or princes, to run its most important facilities, say traders who buy Isis oil and engineers who have worked at Isis-controlled fields.

Some technicians have been actively courted by Isis recruiters. Rami — not his real name — used to work in oil in Syria’s Deir Ezzor province before becoming a rebel commander. He was later contacted by an Isis military emir in Iraq via WhatsApp.

Targeting ISIS infrastructure by airstrikes infitisimalTargeting ISIS infrastructure by airstrikes infinitesimal

“I could choose whatever position I wanted, he promised me,” he said. “He said: ‘You can name your salary’.” Sceptical of the Isis project, Rami ultimately turned down the offer and fled to Turkey.

Isis also recruits from among its supporters abroad. In the speech he gave after the fall of Mosul, Isis leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi called not only for fighters but engineers, doctors and other skilled labour. The group recently appointed an Egyptian engineer who used to live in Sweden as the new manager of its Qayyara refinery in northern Iraq, according to an Iraqi petroleum engineer from Mosul, who declined to be named.

The central role of oil is also reflected in the status it is given in Isis’ power structures.

The group’s approach to government across the territories it controls is highly decentralised. For the most part, it relies on regional walis — governors — to administer territories according to the precepts laid down by the central shura.

However, oil — alongside Isis’ military and security operations and its sophisticated media output — is centrally controlled by the top leadership. “They are organised in their approach to oil,” said a senior western intelligence official. “That’s a key centrally controlled and documented area. It’s a central shura matter,” he added, referring to Isis’ ruling “cabinet”.

Until recently, Isis’ emir for oil was Abu Sayyaf, a Tunisian whose real name, according to the Pentagon, was Fathi Ben Awn Ben Jildi Murad al-Tunisi, and who was killed by US special forces in a raid in May this year. According to US and European intelligence officials, a treasure trove of documentation relating to Isis’ oil operations was found with him. The documents laid bare a meticulously run operation, with revenues from wells and costs carefully accounted for. They showed a pragmatic approach to pricing too, with Isis carefully exploiting differences in demand across its territories to maximise profitability.

Cut-Off ISIS kills ISIS

Oversight of the oil wells is carefully controlled by the Amniyat, Isis’ secret police, who ensure revenues go where they should — and mete out brutal punishments when they do not. Guards patrol the perimeter of pumping stations, while far-flung individual wells are surrounded by protective sand berms and each trader is carefully checked as he drives in to fill up.

At the al-Jibssa field in Hassakeh province, north-eastern Syria, which produces 2,500-3,000 bpd, “about 30-40 big trucks a day, each with 75 barrels of capacity, would fill up”, according to one Hassakeh oil trader.

Isis’ distribution network

But the biggest draw is al-Omar. According to one trader who regularly buys oil there, the system, with its 6km queue, is slow but market players have adapted to it. Drivers present a document with their licence plate number and tanker capacity to Isis officials, who enter them into a database and assign them a number.

ISIS oil: from well to market

Most then return to their villages, shuttling back to the site every two or three days to check up on their vehicles. Traders say that towards the end of the month, some people come back and set up tents to stay close to their trucks while they wait their turn.

Once in possession of al-Omar’s oil, the traders either take it to local refineries or sell it on at a mark-up to middlemen with smaller vehicles who transport it to cities further west such as Aleppo and Idlib.

Isis’ luck with oil may not last. Coalition bombs, the Russian intervention and low oil prices could put pressure on revenues. The biggest threat to Isis’ production so far, however, has been the depletion of Syria’s ageing oilfields. It does not have the technology of major foreign companies to counteract what locals describe as a slow drop in production. Isis’ need for fuel for its military operations means there is also less oil to sell in the market.

For now, though, in Isis-controlled territory, the jihadis control the supply and there is no shortage of demand. “Everyone here needs diesel: for water, for farming, for hospitals, for offices. If diesel is cut off, there is no life here,” says a businessman who works near Aleppo. “Isis knows this [oil] is a winning card.”

ACT for America is using its grassroots clout to promote passage of the Oklahoma Anti-Terrorism Act. In the 2014 session of Oklahoma’s State Congress this is HB 2851. The legislative Act would enable citizens to seek civil liability compensation for acts of terrorism. Here is a summary of the intentions of HB 2851:

 

HB 2851 makes property used in or derived from violations of the Oklahoma Antiterrorism Act subject to forfeiture. The measure allows a person injured as a result of a criminal offense under the Oklahoma Antiterrorism Act or law enforcement agency or other governmental agency that participated in an investigation under the Oklahoma Antiterrorism Act to file a claim for costs or damages against such seized property. (See Also of House Video of explanation and roll call)

 

 

The purpose of the Oklahoma Antiterrorism Act is to enable recourse for Oklahomans when the Federal government fails to act for the general welfare. This failure of Federal action can be observed for the victims of the Ft. Hood Massacre by Muslim psycho Major Nidal Hasan who killed indiscriminately while yelling allahu akbar. The Obama Administration labeled Hasan’s Ft. Hood Massacre as work place violence.

 

The ACT for America ‘Action Alert’ says the inspirations for Oklahoma’s HB 2851 is the Islamic terrorist attack at an Army Recruiting Center in Little Rock, AR. Converted to Islam Carlos Bledsoe (Muslim adopted name – Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad) gunned PFC Andy Long at the recruiting center for the glory of Allah. The Federal government refused to treat this Islamic attack on an U.S. Army soldier as an enemy attack and forced any form of justice to be played out by the State judiciary in Arkansas. A documentary involving the fathers of PFC Long and Muslim attacker Carlos Bledsoe was made entitled, “Losing Our Sons”. Charles Jacobs writing for Breitbart.com shows the idiocy of not labeling this an Islamic terrorist attack:

 

The film tells the story of how Carlos, a young African American college student raised in a middle class Baptist church-going home in Memphis, converted to Islam while studying in Nashville and was sent by local Islamic extremists to Yemen. There, he was trained by Al Qaeda operatives and returned home a year later to perform his personal jihad. After trying to kill two Jewish rabbis in Memphis and Nashville, Carlos shot and killed Andy Long outside a U.S. Army recruitment center in Little Rock. Carlos, who took the name Abdulhakim Muhammad was caught, convicted, and sentenced to life in prison. He told the Associated Press the murder was “Islamically justified.”

 

Though Carlos was trained by Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, crossed state lines to carry out multiple crimes, and confessed to killing Andy as part of his personal jihad, the Justice Department refused to bring any Federal charges against him. The murder was prosecuted in Arkansas state court as a simple drive-by shooting. The Defense Department has refused to give Andy Long a Purple Heart, which would signal that he died by the hands of an enemy combatant in a hostile act on a uniformed military man. The victims of the Fort Hood shooting are likewise denied recognition with a Purple Heart.

 

“Losing Our Sons” traces the stories of Andy and Carlos’s fathers, Daris Long and Melvin Bledsoe, as they try to tell the American people the truth of what happened to their sons.  Audiences fume at scenes of Obama Administration officials denying in their testimony to Congress that Islamic extremism is at war with the United States. Melvin’s testimony about losing his son to a radical ideology is dismissed by certain Congressmen as “an anecdote.” READ ENTIRETY (OBAMA’S FIRST TERRORISM COVER-UP: BENGHAZI IN LITTLE ROCK; By CHARLES JACOBS; Big Peace – Breitbart.com; 10/18/12)

 

Here is what is labelled as a condensed version of the documentary:

 

VIDEO: Losing Our Sons Condensed Version

 

 

Carlos Bledsoe was converted by a Radical Islamic Mosque in Tennessee. Bledsoe was trained by al Qaeda via Anwar al-Awlaki in Yemen. Yemen deported Bledsoe for an expired visa. Al Qaeda told him to go home and do something for Allah. Hello! That was essentially a jihad assignment to kill non-Muslims in the USA. That made Carlos Bledsoe a foreign enemy terrorist combatant. A host of radical Muslims have preached their jihad messages in Tennessee Mosques.

 

BUT since the Little Rock Army Recruiting Center shooting was treated as a drive-by shooting civil damages as a recourse was limited to non-existent. Enter the Oklahoma Antiterrorist Act – HB 2851. The House passed this bill 92 to 0. The bill is proceeding to the Oklahoma Senate. If the Senate joins the House and sends the Oklahoma Antiterrorist Act to Governor Mary Fallin for a signature, then Oklahoma joins three other States that have lost faith in the Federal government in the Constitutional obligation to provide for the general welfare: Kansas, Arkansas and Louisiana.

PROVIDE FOR CIVIL LIABILITY FOR ACTS OF TERRORISM

 

Sent by ACT for America

*** OKLAHOMA ACTION ALERT ***

SHOW YOUR SUPPORT FOR HB2851 TO STRENGTHEN OKLAHOMA’S ANTI-TERRORISM LAWS AND

 

Dear advocate,

 

Representative Dan Fisher and Senator Ralph Shortey have introduced an important bill in the Oklahoma state legislature and ACT! for America is getting behind it.  Further, we are asking for your help in moving it across the legislative finish line and into law.

 

The bill is HB2851–legislation that strengthens Oklahoma’s anti-terrorism laws and provides for enhanced civil liability for acts of terrorism in Oklahoma.  The legislation would hold those who commit acts of terrorism in Oklahoma civilly liable for those acts, and allow the victims of that terrorism to sue for monetary damages.

 

The bill was inspired by the Jihadist terrorist attack that occurred in Little Rock, Arkansas on June 1st 2009 in which US Army Private Andy Long was killed outside a Recruiting Station. That incident was the subject of the movie “Losing Our Sons.”

 

The federal government declined to call that incident an act of terrorism and failed to prosecute it as such.

 

This state level legislation is needed because homegrown Jihadists don’t turn to Jihad on their own. They are recruited and indoctrinated. Those who recruit and indoctrinate for Jihad need to be made civilly liable both for the benefit of survivors and so that discovery can take place to uncover Jihad networks when the federal government fails to do its job.

 

This same common-sense legislation has already passed into law in Kansas, Arkansas and Louisiana.

 

In fact, HB2851 passed the Oklahoma House of Representatives 92-0 and was reported favorably out of the Senate Judiciary Committee earlier this month. Now it heads to the Senate for a floor vote.

 

We think this is an important proposal that is worthy of our support and we ask that you use your powerful voice — as an Oklahoma resident and voter – to register your support as well.  This action will enhance the chance of this bill ultimately being passed into law.

 

We need you to contact your Oklahoma State Senator to let him/her know that you support HB2851 and that you’d like them to do so as well, by signing on as a cosponsor and voting “yes” when it is brought to a vote.

Radical Islam Shaking & Moving U.S. Govt.


MB-Marxism in USA

Counterjihad writers have long asserted the Islam fingered as Radical has not only infiltrated the United States of America by forming NGOs with the stamp of legality BUT ALSO have been infiltrating the U.S. government itself. The government infiltration began in the Bush Administration even though it was President G. W. Bush that correctly defined a new era of unconventional war as the Global War on Terrorism (GWTO). Under the Leftist Administration of President Barack Hussein Obama Radical Islamic associated Muslims has increased alarmingly.

 

Here are just a few Radical Muslims (some often pretend to be Moderates) either on the government payroll or are very influential as a mover and shaker in the U.S. government.

 

o   Arif Alikhan  (See Also HERE) – Assistant Secretary for Policy Development for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.

 

o   Mohammed Elibiary (See Also HERE) – Homeland Security Adviser.

 

o   Rashad Hussain (See Also HERE) – Special Envoy to the (OIC) Organization of the Islamic Conference.

 

o   Salam al-Marayati (See Also HERE) – Obama Adviser, founder of Muslim Public Affairs Council and its current executive director.

 

o   Imam Mohamed Magid (See Also HERE) – Obama’s Sharia Czar, Islamic Society of North America.

 

o   Eboo Patel (See Also HERE) – Advisory Council on Faith-Based Neighborhood Partnerships. (Last six names gleaned from FrontPageMag.com. Further info leaks added by Google search)

 

o   Huma Abedin (See also HERE) – Longtime assistant, advisor and confidant of Hillary Clinton – Senate Days and Secretary of State Days.

 

o   Suhail KhanKhan convinced then-House Speaker Newt Gingrich to reserve a room in the Capitol for Muslims to pray.  Khan was working for Tom Campbell, a Republican congressman from a heavily Muslim district in Northern California, to eliminate the Justice Department’s use of so-called “secret evidence” in deportation cases involving Arab immigrants suspected of terrorism. After George W. Bush’s presidential election victory in 2000, Khan became a staff member in the White House Office of Public Liaison (OPL), where he was given responsibility for selecting which Muslims would be allowed access to the President and his team.  Khan was removed from the OPL and was given a political appointment in the Department of Transportation. He spent the rest of the Bush administration there, ultimately serving as the Assistant to the Secretary for Policy. In that capacity, Khan had access to classified information on such matters as port, rail, waterway and highway security, as well as the movement of nuclear weapons and other hazardous materials.

 

o   Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN-5) [See Also HERE] – One of those strange bedfellows of a Left Wing Democrat and an associate of the Black Supremacist Nation of Islam (NOI) and a host of Radical Islamic American organizations linked to the Muslim Brotherhood of which many are linked to Islamic terrorists.

 

o   Dalia Mogahed An advisor to the White House Office of Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships.

 

This is hardly an exhaustive list. I just gave up digging for now.

 

Most of the prominent Muslim-American organizations are linked to Radical Islam. Many of these organizations go out of their way to build an image of the politically correct concept of Moderate Islam. This is an outright deception. These Muslim-American organizations follow the ideological line of the Muslim Brotherhood, Saudi Wahhabis, Turkish Islamists and Pakistan Islamists are the ones that come to mind. Here is a chart of the Muslim Brotherhood linked Muslim-American organizations and note some of these are tied to Islamic terrorists or support the goals of Islamic terrorism.

 

All the organizations I have in mind above link themselves to Sunni Islam. You need to know there are Shia Radical Islamic organizations penetrating the USA as well. The Shias are supported by the Twelver nutcases of Iran. The biggest Shia Islamic Terrorist organization is Hezbollah the client terrorists of Iran in Lebanon focused on Jew-hatred and itself stretching a global network.

 

ACT for America via email sent an essay by John D. Guandolo that was written with the intent expose Radical Islamic organizations in America are attacking Dr. M. Zuhdi Jasser with impunity. For those that believe Islam has a moderate side Dr. Jasser is considered a Moderate Muslim even to the extent of transforming the Islamic religion into a modern version in which the harsher points of Sharia and Muslim traditional intolerance are excluded. As you can tell from my tone I have been moving away from the concept that Islam can transform as long as Mohammed and the Quran are held as the veritable word of Allah to humanity. For this to happen would be an overhaul that I cannot see ever happening – at least in my life time.

 

But enough of the ifs and maybes of the possibility of a new Islam. The point you need to pay attention to in Guandolo’s essay is his break down of the nefarious connections the Muslim Brotherhood tentacles has in America in an astoundingly legitimate manner with NO One willing to take a stand that is a real leader in our nation out of fear.

 

What is that fear?

 

That fear is the brainwashing of our society to the political correctness that multiculturalism enhances our American way of life when in reality the American way is diluted. America has become so diluted with multiculturalism that the inherent traits of Americans are disappearing. As those traits disappear, that which makes America good ceases to exist.

 

Off the top of my head some of those traits are:

 

o   American Individualism.

 

o   The intense desire for individualism leads to a hunger for Liberty and Freedom.

 

o   Liberty and Freedom led our Founders to construct a Constitution codifying them and making it difficult for a government to terminate Liberty and Freedom.

 

o   Our heritage was largely established on the values of Christians coming to America to worship their faith without government interference YET with a definite inculcation of Christian Morality in the development of the rule of law and the social mores of American community.

 

o   A government accountable to the people rather than a government accountable to an individual or an oligarchic group (such as European nobility).

 

I’m sure others can think of other points that made America good. Left Wingers need not add their Living Constitution Separation of Church/State nonsense.

CAIR’s Attack on Zuhdi Jasser’s Funders Begs the Questions:
Who is CAIR and Where Does Its Money Come From

 John Guandolo

 

By John D. Guandolo

Sent: 3/10/2014 9:25 AM

Sent by: ACT for America

 

Dr. M. Zuhdi Jasser, the founder of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy (AIFD), served for eleven years as a medical officer in the United States Navy where he was awarded the Meritorious Service Medal. Dr. Jasser is a Past-President of the Arizona Medical Association, and currently has a private practice in Phoenix specializing in internal medicine and nuclear cardiology.

Dr. Jasser, as many are aware, is an outspoken critic of the Muslim Brotherhood’s Movement in the United States, and is harshly critical of those seeking to impose sharia (Islamic Law) in America. He strongly supports the U.S. Constitution as the supreme law of the land.

Zuhdi Jasser is a patriot, an American hero, and a Muslim – which is why Hamas (doing business as CAIR) is attacking him.

Last week, Hamas (dba CAIR) launched yet another assault on Dr. Jasser. In 2012, CAIR unsuccessfully tried to block his appointment to the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom (USCIRF), where he currently serves. CAIR is calling on the USCIRF to investigate the sources of funding for Dr. Jasser’s organization AIFD.

The fact that a Hamas organization like CAIR could operate so openly in the U.S. without disruption from the current administration is, in and of itself, astonishing. CAIR’s brazenness in attacking an honorable American like Dr. Jasser begs questions that must be answered – Who is CAIR and Where Does Its Funding Come From?

Let us together take a walk through the place CAIR never wants us to go – into the land of facts and evidence.

CAIR was incorporated in 1994 by Nihad Awad, Omar Ahmad, and Rafeeq Jaber. All three of these men were leaders of the Islamic Association of Palestine (IAP), a now-defunct Hamas organization in the U.S. Musa Abu Marzook, the Deputy Political Chief for Hamas and the Leader of Hamas in the United States (Chairman of the U.S. Palestine Committee), was a member of the IAP Board of Directors. FYI, Hamas is a designated Foreign Terrorist Organization (FTO) by the U.S. government.

In 1993 and 1994, Omar Ahmad served as the National President for IAP, and from 1994-2005 was the Chairman of the Board for CAIR. Omar Ahmad was also on the Executive Committee of the U.S. Palestine Committee (Hamas). Rafeeq Jaber served as the National President of IAP from 1996-98 and 1999-2005.

U.S. government prosecutors and the Department of Justice identify CAIR as a member of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood’s Palestine Committee, which is Hamas in the United States.

In 1993, the leaders of the U.S. Palestine Committee (Hamas) met in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The meeting was covered by the FBI via physical surveillance, microphones in meeting rooms, and wiretaps on phones. An “Action Memo” from FBI’s Assistant Director for Counterterrorism Dale Watson declared this was a “Meeting among senior leaders of Hamas, the HLFRD, and the IAP.” FBI analysis of the Philadelphia meeting, which was entered into evidence at the US v Holy Land Foundation (hereafter “HLF”) trial reveals “All attendees of this meeting are Hamas members.” Nihad Awad and Omar Ahmad were present at this meeting.

Recorded conversations of this meeting captured Awad and Ahmad discussing the creation of a new public relations organization for Hamas which investigators testified was CAIR, created in summer of 1994, less than a year after the Philadelphia meeting.

The HLF Indictment (2004) states: “The purpose of this (1993 Philadelphia) meeting was to determine their course of action in support of Hamas’ opposition to the peace plan and to decide how to conceal their activities from the scrutiny of the United States government.”

In a 2004 FBI raid at the Annandale, Virginia residence of Ismail Elbarasse, a senior Hamas and Muslim Brotherhood (MB) operative, the archives of the U.S. MB were discovered. One of the documents found lists the leaders of the U.S. Palestine Committee (Hamas) – the names of CAIR founders Nihad Awad and Omar Ahmad (alias Omar Yeheya) are on that list.

Because of the overwhelming evidence that CAIR is a Hamas entity, U.S. prosecutors list CAIR as a member of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood’s Palestine Committee (Hamas) and as an unindicted co-conspirator in the HLF trial – the largest Hamas and terrorism financing trial ever successfully prosecuted in U.S. history.

In the government filing requesting a denial of CAIR’s motion to have its name removed from the Unindicted Co-Conspirator list in the HLF case, U.S. prosecutors state, “The U.S. Muslim Brotherhood created the U.S. Palestine Committee, which documents reflect was initially comprised of three organizations: the OLF (HLF), the IAP, and the UASR. CAIR was later added to these organizations…the mandate of these organizations, per the International Muslim Brotherhood, was to support Hamas.”

In his ruling, the federal Judge in this case, Jorge Solis, stated: “The Government has produced ample evidence to establish the associations of CAIR, ISNA, and NAIT with the HLF, the Islamic Association of Palestine (“IAP”), and with Hamas.”

The question of why the President of ISNA sits on the Department of Homeland Security’s Advisory Committee, works directly with the Secretary of State, briefs National Security staffs, moderates panel discussions at CIA Headquarters, and has been given awards by the FBI will have to be addressed at a later date.

Is anyone else wondering how CAIR and its leaders are allowed to operate freely and unimpeded in America, with their headquarters only a block from the U.S. Capitol?

More evidence…

In the December 2007 government filing in the US v Sabri Benkhala appeal, the government stated: “From its founding by the Muslim Brotherhood leaders, CAIR conspired with other affiliates of the Muslim Brotherhood to support terrorists.” So, CAIR is a Muslim Brotherhood organization which supports terrorists. It would appear federal law is being violated here.

This would explain why CAIR has a long record of defending jihadis and jihadi organizations, while publicly condemning the counterterrorism efforts of the U.S. government and local law enforcement. Noteworthy is CAIR’s vigorous defense of Hamas leader Musa Abu Marzook after his arrest, and their criticism of our government for its investigation and indictment of the Holy Land Foundation – another Hamas entity.

What do senior government officials who have seen the evidence have to say about CAIR?

Former FBI Assistant Director Steve Pomeranz stated: “By masquerading as a mainstream public affairs organization, CAIR has taken the lead in trying to mislead the public about the terrorist underpinnings of militant Islamic movements, in particular, Hamas.”

In a 2003 Senate Sub-Committee hearing on radical Islam, Senator Charles Schumer stated, “To make matters worse, the prominent members of the Council’s (CAIR’s) current leadership who you Mr. Chairman invited to the hearings today – they declined to testify – also have intimate connections with Hamas.”

In June 2009, on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives, Congressman Frank Wolf (VA) gave a lengthy speech in which he laid out a great deal of the evidence against CAIR and its ties to Hamas. The transcript of this speech can be found at http://wolf.house.gov/media-center/press-releases/wolf-gives-major-floor-speech-on-fbis-cooperation-with-cair

In a letter dated April 28, 2009 from the FBI’s Assistant Director, Office of Congressional Affairs, to U.S. Senator John Kyl (AZ), the FBI leader details why the FBI cut off all formal ties to CAIR and identifies it as an unindicted co-conspirator in the HLF trial because of its relationship with Hamas.

In a letter dated February 12, 2010 to U.S. Congresswoman Sue Myrick (NC) from Assistant U.S. Attorney General Ronald Weich, Mr. Weich wrote “Enclosed (is)…evidence that was introduced in that trial (US v HLF) which demonstrated the relationship among CAIR, individual CAIR founders, and the Palestine Committee. Evidence was also introduced that demonstrated a relationship between the Palestine Committee and Hamas.”

For those of you who forgot Junior High School math, please allow me to review: If A=B and B=C, then A=C. There is a relationship between CAIR and the U.S. Palestine Committee. There is a relationship between the U.S. Palestine Committee and Hamas. Therefore, there is a relationship between CAIR and Hamas. As was previously stated, on the order from the International Muslim Brotherhood, the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood created the U.S. Palestine Committee to raise “media, money, men and all that” for Hamas. The U.S. Palestine Committee created four organizations to support Hamas with propaganda, money, and recruits: The Occupied Land Fund (which became the HLF), the Islamic Association of Palestine (IAP), the United Association for Studies and Research (UASR), and CAIR.

In the sporting world we call this a slam dunk. But what about the money CAIR receives. Certainly if they are attacking Dr. Jasser and his organization for improprieties in his sources of funding, CAIR must be squeaky clean, yes?

No, actually.

Actually, the Hamas front called the Holy Land Foundation provided CAIR with $5,000 of seed money shortly after CAIR was founded, and, in return, CAIR raised money for HLF. Is there another violation of U.S. law here?

CAIR has also received funds from overseas organizations like WAMY (World Association of Muslim Youth) and IIRO (International Islamic Relief Organization). Both WAMY and IIRO are Saudi-funded groups whose U.S. offices were raided by the government because of their possible ties to Hamas and Al Qaeda.

Most notably, In 1999, CAIR received $250,000 from a Saudi-based bank headed by the former Director of the Muslim World League (MWL). Osama bin Laden identified MWL as a primary source of funds for Al Qaeda. Federal investigators raided MWL’s U.S. offices. It is not a far reach to see that CAIR received money from a source the leader of Al Qaeda recognized was a “primary” source of funding for AQ.

It should be noted the information in this article is a small amount of the massive evidence revealing the Council on American Islamic Relations is a Hamas entity whose role in the greater Islamic Movement here is to “support terrorists” as the U.S. Department of Justice has stated. They do this in a variety of ways. As a matter of fact, CAIR’s website acknowledges that all money donated to it via zakat goes to jihad fisabillillah – the seventh category under Islamic Law – but maybe we should save that discussion for another article.

As CAIR launches its attacks against honorable Americans like Dr. Zuhdi Jasser who are standing firm on the truth about a real and present threat to the American people and our nation, another question must be asked…

Where are the U.S. agencies charged with protecting and defending Americans like Dr. Jasser, and why are they not shutting CAIR down, arresting its leaders, and seizing all of its assets? Maybe they haven’t seen the facts.

Oklahoma Voters Know the Enemy


OK Billboard- Sharia Threatens America

John R. Houk

I have live in Oklahoma off and on since 1982. Honestly I have had tough time in calling Oklahoma home. I was born in San Diego, CA and was raised in Washington State (the more Conservative east side) and have a tough time letting go of that feeling that Washington is home. I say all that and have developed a semi-attachment to Oklahoma primarily because I married the love of my life who was born and bred in Oklahoma. So I guess today, I will call myself an Okie.

 

I am proud I reside in Oklahoma which is one of the first State’s to pass a voter’s initiative that would have been aimed at keeping Islam’s Sharia Law out of this State. Voters passed SQ 755 with a ¾ approval and the State Question became known as the Save our State Amendment. You would think that would be a done deal, right? The local chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-OK) filed a Federal suit and ultimately had the Save our State Amendment struck down. CAIR-OK’s win was based on SQ 755 specifying Sharia Law in an effort to keep laws of foreign origin that contradict the U.S. and Oklahoma State Constitution out of the judicial system in Oklahoma. Ultimately SQ 755 was ruled unconstitutional because the 1st Amendment forbids the government (actually specifically the Federal Congress) from making any laws affecting religion.

 

Even before U.S. District Court Judge Vicki Miles-LaGrange ink was dry on the opinion striking down the Save our State Amendment down the Oklahoma State Congress passed its version of American Laws for American Courts (ALAC) joining many other States who found a way to keep the Anti-American Islamic Sharia Law out of the Oklahoma Courts and still protect religious freedom. An ALAC makes no mention of religious faith whatsoever yet singles out specifically that any foreign law rather of another nation or international law cannot be used as a legal precedent in an Oklahoma State Court if contradicts the U.S. Constitution or the Oklahoma State Constitution. The legislative act was passed and signed in April 2013 and became effective on November 2013.

 

Today I read an ACT for America Action Alert about pending legislation aimed at strengthening anti-terrorism enforcement in Oklahoma is before the State’s House of Representatives and is labeled HB 2851. The ACT email includes State House member to contact by phone or email to show your support for the Bill. According to ACT the legislation is intended to rectify the failure of the Obama Administration and the Attorney General Eric Holder’s decision to label the Islamic jihad attack on American Servicemen at Ft. Hood by the Muslim and American citizen Major Nidal Hasan as work place violence rather than act of Islamic terrorism.

 

Recent Update on Ft. Hood Classification

 

Here is the ACT for America Action Alert. If you live in Oklahoma I encourage you to contact the State Congressman in the email. If you are from outside of Oklahoma and maybe have had an unfavorable experience pertaining to Homegrown Islamic terrorism perhaps you could send an email to the Congressmen.

SHOW YOUR SUPPORT FOR HB2851 TO STRENGTHEN
OKLAHOMA’S ANTI-TERRORISM LAWS AND
PROVIDE FOR CIVIL LIABILITY FOR ACTS OF TERRORISM

Representative Dan Fisher has introduced an important bill in the Oklahoma state legislature and ACT! for America is getting behind it. Further, we are asking for your help in moving it across the legislative finish line and into law.

The bill is HB 2851 – legislation that strengthens Oklahoma’s anti-terrorism laws and provides for enhanced civil liability for acts of terrorism in Oklahoma. The legislation would hold those who commit acts of terrorism in Oklahoma civilly liable for those acts, and allow the victims of that terrorism to sue for monetary damages.

The bill was inspired by the Jihadist terrorist attack that occurred in Little Rock, Arkansas on June 1st 2009 in which US Army Private Andy Long was killed outside a Recruiting Station. That incident was the subject of the movie “Losing Our Sons.” The federal government declined to call that incident an act of terrorism and failed to prosecute it as such.

This state level legislation is needed because homegrown Jihadists don’t turn to Jihad on their own. They are recruited and indoctrinated. Those who recruit and indoctrinate for Jihad need to be made civilly liable both for the benefit of survivors and so that discovery can take place to uncover Jihad networks when the federal government fails to do its job.

This same common-sense legislation has already passed into law in Arkansas and Louisiana.

We think this is an important proposal that is worthy of our support and we ask that you use your powerful voice – as an Oklahoma resident and voter – to register your support as well. This action will enhance the chance of this bill ultimately being passed into law.

We need you to contact the members of the House Judiciary Committee to let them know that you support HB 2851 and that you’d like them to do so as well, by signing on as a cosponsor and voting “yes” when it is brought before their committee:

Dear Representative_________,

I urge you to support and co-sponsor HB 2851, in order to strengthen Oklahoma’s anti-terrorism laws and see to it that individuals committing acts of terrorism in Oklahoma be held civilly liable for their actions.

This same legislation has already been passed into law in Arkansas and Louisiana.

Obama Rendering Constitution to Dhimmitude to the OIC


Islamic Republic of America flag

 

John R. Houk

© December 6, 2012

 

Have you ever heard of the Bilderbergers? A group powerful politicians and wealthy people primarily from Europe and the USA have a semi-secret and an absolutely closed meeting on an annual basis. This group that meets annually has derived its name because the first known meeting place was the Bilderberg Hotel in the Netherlands.

 

A webpage that bills itself as the official website and is labeled Bilderberg Meetings can be read HERE. There is a huge amount of Conspiracy Theory websites that describe the Bilderbergers as a New World Order agenda group. I am using the Jeremiah Project merely because that is first the website I looked when I Googled “Bilderberger.” The Jeremiah Project writes about the nefarious nature of the Bilderbergers and can be read HERE.

 

Well check this out! Are you aware the Obama Administration has dispatched Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to a series of semi-secret meetings with the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) to participate in “classified” (i.e. Closed Meetings) to negotiate about criminalizing criticism of Islam? The meetings are called the Istanbul Process. I found a good summary about the Istanbul Process on the Gates of Vienna. Read the entire article but I think you can get the idea of the Istanbul Process and its agenda.  Hillary Clinton is negotiating compliance (translate as dhimmitude) to this process which is a threat to the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.

 

The objective of my presentation is to explain the role plaid by the Organization of the Islamic Cooperation, OIC, and its several attempts to try to ban freedom of expression on Islam across the world.

1.

 

First, I will explain what is the OIC and what are its goals

 

2.

 

 

Secondly I will develop the freedom- killing Islamic concept of “defamation of religions” supported by OIC and partly by the UN;

 

3.

 

 

Third I will finish with the “Istanbul process” and the western reaction against OIC anti-freedom and theocratic agenda.

 

Below is an email from ACT for America that is just as much a fund raiser as it is informative. The part I want you to really take notice of is the “informative.” ACT for America is sending an article by Nina Shea that I noticed was actually picked up by a number media websites. After reading the informative it would not hurt to add a bit of support for ACT for America.

Obama Administration cooperates with the OIC’s assault on free speech!

 

Hillary Clinton - 12-2011 Istanbul Process

 

If you cherish our First Amendment right of free speech, we urge you, as strongly as we can, to read the article below by Nina Shea about the Istanbul Process (highlights added), which was recently posted on National Review Online.

 

For over 18 months now, the Obama administration has been working with the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) on what is known as the Istanbul Process.

The Istanbul Process has evolved into an assault on our free speech so serious that next year ACT! for America will launch a national campaign to expose what is happening and fight back against it.

It’s simply not possible to overstate how serious a threat this is to our First Amendment.

You can help us prepare now for next year’s national campaign, by making a year-end contribution to ACT! for America’s 5th anniversary appeal, which we announced in September.

 

Simply go online here, make a $5 or more monthly commitment to ACT! for America’s Patriot Partner program, or a $30 or more single gift. When you do, you’ll be entered in a drawing to win one of two chances to have Brigitte Gabriel visit your community and meet with you and up to 25 of your friends.

You can also make a single gift by printing out a reply form here and mailing your contribution.

We urge you, please, read the article below and help us prepare for next year’s campaign to protect free speech with your most generous contribution.

Because even if America succeeds in preventing every future terrorist attack, if we lose our freedom to speak out against radical Islam, a central tenet of sharia law will prevail in America and put a dagger in the heart of the First Amendment.

Here’s just one quote from the column below:

 

Judging from the 2011 session I was partially able to observe as a commissioner on the official U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom, the point of the Istanbul Process is for the governments of the developed West [to] give an accounting to the governments of Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Pakistan, Qatar, and other key Muslim states on measures taken to stop American and other Western citizens from disparaging Islam.


America Again Submits to the Istanbul Process

By Nina Shea.

http://www.nationalreview.com/corner/334647/america-again-submits-istanbul-process-nina-shea

 

Round three of the “Istanbul Process” opens today, December 3, and runs through Wednesday, at Canada House, in London, hosted by the U.K. and Canada. The Istanbul Process is Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s major transnational law initiative, undertaken in partnership with the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC). It was established last year to “implement” measures against speech and expression that negatively “stereotype[s]” Islam and Muslims, with a particular emphasis on enacting them in the West.

This initiative was started as an inexplicable, gratuitous gift to the Muslim world following the March 2011 adoption of a non-binding U.N. Human Rights Council resolution (16/18) on the same theme. While the Obama administration claims that it doesn’t intend for the process to adopt regulations beyond the American free-speech standard, our partner, the OIC, is only too eager to do just that.

For over a decade within the U.N., the OIC has relentlessly pushed for a universal law to punish blasphemy, or “defamation,” of Islam. This 56-member-state organization, an essentially religious body, is in fact chartered to “combat defamation of Islam.” It issues fatwas and other directives to punish public expression of apostasy from Islam. Its current action plan calls for “deterrent punishments” in all states for “Islamophobia,” a term that encompasses a broad range of constitutionally protected speech, judging from the OIC website’s black list of Americans and other perpetrators of “Islamophobia.” The OIC’s stated understanding of the Istanbul Process is that it will “help in enacting domestic laws for the countries involved in the issue, as well as formulating international laws preventing inciting hatred resulting from the continued defamation of religions.”

Corner readers will remember that the Istanbul Process’s first conference was co-chaired by Clinton and the OIC secretary general in July 2011, in Istanbul, with the foreign ministers of the Muslim countries in attendance. The second was held over three days of closed-door meetings last December, at the offices of the U.S. Department of State in Washington. That meeting drew enough controversy within free-speech circles to raise questions about whether the process would continue. But thanks to a leak last week by OIC head Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu, we now know the event will go ahead, even if its agenda is still being treated like it’s “classified.”

Judging from the 2011 session I was partially able to observe as a commissioner on the official U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom, the point of the Istanbul Process is for the governments of the developed West give an accounting to the governments of Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Pakistan, Qatar, and other key Muslim states on measures taken to stop American and other Western citizens from disparaging Islam. This puts our diplomats in a tight spot: Unlike virtually every other country represented in the conference hall, America does not protect any religion or any other body of ideas from criticism and ridicule. However, when we’re in the dock this time around, the U.S., represented by Dr. Suzan Johnson Cook, the administration’s severely marginalized ambassador-at-large for religious freedom, will have some measure of “progress” to report.

For example, the U.S.’s top intelligence official and its top commander in Afghanistan were again deployed to suppress blasphemy against Islam in Florida and, this time around, they succeeded. Last year, the efforts of our top authorities to stop Florida micro-church pastor Terry Jones from desecrating a Koran ended in failure. But this year, their resort to the “good offices” of Tampa socialite Jill Kelley proved an effective strategy. Her persuasive emails resulted in Florida talk-show host Bubba the Love Sponge’s standing down from deep frying a Koran, something he had threatened to do on-air. The OIC’s Ihsanoglu would likely rule Bubba was about to “abuse” freedom of expression by not being able (incontrovertibly, I should note) to pass a “responsible use” test.

That leads to our next plea: The administration has also adopted the OIC’s own standard of condemning the “abuse of free expression.” Or at least that is what it appeared to do on the website of the pivotal U.S. embassy to Egypt on September 11 this year. Our embassy declared on its homepage: “We firmly reject the actions by those who abuse the universal right of free speech to hurt the religious beliefs of others.”

But perhaps, the best evidence of America’s “implementation” in response to the Istanbul Process is the Justice Department’s dispatching the FBI a couple months ago to investigate Mark Basseley Youssef (a.k.a. Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, or Sam Bacile), the California Coptic filmmaker of “Innocence of Muslims,” the YouTube trailer that blasphemed the Muslim prophet. As Ambassador Cook can point out, this investigation has resulted in a creative criminal conviction of Youssef, and his being sentenced by a federal court to a year in prison. All the better for the U.S.’s reputation as implementers is that it will be lost on the conferees that Youssef has been imprisoned on a probation offense, à la Al Capone — though, unlike Capone, his underlying offense, without which he would not have been investigated, was making a crude, insulting video, which is hardly equivalent in American law to gangland massacres or racketeering. It, in fact, is not a crime at all. Thus, most important, the OIC’s take-away will be that in defense of Islam the U.S. government can and will regulate speech.

Nevertheless, none of this is likely to impress the Istanbul Process gathering. On its opening day last December, Saudi Arabia — headquarters to and godfather of the OIC — beheaded a Sudanese woman for “sorcery.” Last week, Egypt sentenced to death Youssef, Terry Jones, and six other Americans implicated in the blasphemous YouTube trailer. For the Istanbul Process that’s “best practices” for “implementation.” Thus, again, America will be judged to have fallen short, indignation will rise, and the Istanbul Process will need to ramp up its pressure.

A cover-up in Libya?


ACT - We've had enough petition banner

It drives me crazy when President Barack Hussein Obama tells the voters that Republicans are out of touch with Americans! BHO has screwed the economy. BHO has screwed the American image with weakness particularly with Muslims that hate our guts. AND BHO has screwed American Foreign Policy with a future agenda of weakening America further by dismembering the American military.

 

Come on voters! Are we going to continue to believe the BHO lies, smoke and mirrors to deceive us? I say NO!

 

Let’s do a pre-election notice to BHO and sign this petition that ACT for America is circling about being fed up with Obama’s Foreign Policy choices making us weak and a target for Islamic Supremacism.

A cover-up in Libya?

Since our Egyptian and Libyan embassies were attacked we’ve seen a steady stream of statements from the Obama administration, some in Congress, and some in the media and academia, who blame an obscure 14 minute film for the outbreak of the violence.

The Obama administration went so far as to pressure YouTube to take the film down! In a victory for free speech, YouTube refused.

These efforts to blame the film are dangerous and misguided. What’s more, there is growing evidence that the administration is blaming the film in an effort to cover up what really happened in Libya—a planned and coordinated terrorist attack on our consulate that, inexplicably, we were unprepared for.

The Libyan president and numerous intelligence sources dispute the Obama administration’s claims that the Libyan attack was a “spontaneous” mob outburst. These sources insist all the evidence points to a planned terrorist attack.

If this is true, the administration is not only emboldening radical Muslims worldwide with its constant references to the film, it is sending a message to terrorist networks everywhere that it will attempt to cover up for its own mistakes with assaults on free speech.

HAD ENOUGH?? 

Then join the nearly 10,000 people who in one day signed our petition, and add your name. We will deliver the petition to the White House and leaders of Congress.

We’ve Had Enough!!

 

Since the unjustified assaults on the U.S. embassies in Cairo and Libya, many in the Obama administration, the Congress, the media, and academia, have apologized, blamed or insinuated that a satirical film about Mohammed was the catalyst for all the violence.

We, the undersigned, know better—and we’ve had enough.

We’ve had enough of the Obama administration’s efforts to placate Islamist mobs motivated by ideology, or hatred of America, or just plain thuggery, with its repeated references to this obscure film that prior to September 11, 2012, no one had ever heard of.

We’ve had enough of the Obama administration and some Members of Congress insinuating or even implying that the violence against our embassies would not have occurred had it not been for this “offense” against Islam.

We’ve had enough of those who say a single blog post about an obscure film satirizing Islam is somehow responsible for the violence and anger raging throughout the Muslim world.

We’ve had enough of political leaders who cower in the face of the intimidation and bullying tactics of radical Muslims around the world who can never be appeased enough or accommodated enough.

We’ve had enough of the “establishment media’s” double standard, who defend satirical films and art that offend Christians and Jews as “free speech,” but condemn satire that offends Muslims as “hate speech.”

We’ve had enough of American politicians who fail to see or refuse to see the clear and present threat the Muslim Brotherhood poses to the United States.

We’ve had enough of the message of weakness coming out of Washington when what is required now is a defense of America, a defense of our values, strength, courage and resolve.

We are the silent majority in America.

We don’t riot when offended. We don’t storm embassies, kill ambassadors, or torch government buildings.

And we know that we’ve been here once before.

In 1979, we said “enough” to an economy in shambles, skyrocketing gas prices, and a president whose weakness emboldened Iranian radicals to hold Americans hostage for 444 days.

On November 6th, we will again say “enough,” just as patriotic and responsible Americans have said “enough” in the past.

We will VOTE.

Let’s Get ALAC on GOP Party Platform


Sharia Explained

John R. Houk

© August 2, 2012

 

American Laws for American Courts (ALAC) should be an Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. ACT for America (or at least a Chapter member) has discovered the GOP is asking voter participation in developing the Republican Party platform. I’ll get to how you too can participate in a moment; you need to have an understanding of what exactly ALAC is. Here is model for ALAC as promoted by American Public Policy Alliance (APPA):

 

[ALAC] MODEL LEGISLATION

 

AN ACT to protect rights and privileges granted under the United States or [State] Constitution.

 

BE IT ENACTED BY THE [GENERAL ASSEMBLY/LEGISLATURE] OF THE STATE OF [_____]:

 

The [general assembly/legislature] finds that it shall be the public policy of this state to protect its citizens from the application of foreign laws when the application of a foreign law will result in the violation of a right guaranteed by the constitution of this state or of the United States, including but not limited to due process, freedom of religion, speech, or press, and any right of privacy or marriage as specifically defined by the constitution of this state.

 

The [general assembly/state legislature] fully recognizes the right to contract freely under the laws of this state, and also recognizes that this right may be reasonably and rationally circumscribed pursuant to the state’s interest to protect and promote rights and privileges granted under the United States or [State] Constitution, including but not limited to due process, freedom of religion, speech, or press, and any right of privacy or marriage as specifically defined by the constitution of this state.

 

[1] As used in this act, “foreign law, legal code, or system” means any law, legal code, or system of a jurisdiction outside of any state or territory of the United States, including, but not limited to, international organizations and tribunals, and applied by that jurisdiction’s courts, administrative bodies, or other formal or informal tribunals For the purposes of this act, foreign law shall not mean, nor shall it include, any laws of the Native American tribes in this state.

 

[2] Any court, arbitration, tribunal, or administrative agency ruling or decision shall violate the public policy of this State and be void and unenforceable if the court, arbitration, tribunal, or administrative agency bases its rulings or decisions in the matter at issue in whole or in part on any law, legal code or system that would not grant the parties affected by the ruling or decision the same fundamental liberties, rights, and privileges granted under the U.S. and [State] Constitutions, including but not limited to due process, freedom of religion, speech, or press, and any right of privacy or marriage as specifically defined by the constitution of this state.

 

[3] A contract or contractual provision (if capable of segregation) which provides for the choice of a law, legal code or system to govern some or all of the disputes between the parties adjudicated by a court of law or by an arbitration panel arising from the contract mutually agreed upon shall violate the public policy of this State and be void and unenforceable if the law, legal code or system chosen includes or incorporates any substantive or procedural law, as applied to the dispute at issue, that would not grant the parties the same fundamental liberties, rights, and privileges granted under the U.S. and [State] Constitutions, including but not limited to due process, freedom of religion, speech, or press, and any right of privacy or marriage as specifically defined by the constitution of this state.

 

[4]

 

1)      A. A contract or contractual provision (if capable of segregation) which provides for a jurisdiction for purposes of granting the courts or arbitration panels in personam jurisdiction over the parties to adjudicate any disputes between parties arising from the contract mutually agreed upon shall violate the public policy of this State and be void and unenforceable if the jurisdiction chosen includes any law, legal code or system, as applied to the dispute at issue, that would not grant the parties the same fundamental liberties, rights, and privileges granted under the U.S. and [State] Constitutions, including but not limited to due process, freedom of religion, speech, or press, and any right of privacy or marriage as specifically defined by the constitution of this state.

 

2)      B. If a resident of this state, subject to personal jurisdiction in this state, seeks to maintain litigation, arbitration, agency or similarly binding proceedings in this state and if the courts of this state find that granting a claim of forum non conveniens or a related claim violates or would likely violate the fundamental liberties, rights, and privileges granted under the U.S. and [State] Constitutions of the non-claimant in the foreign forum with respect to the matter in dispute, then it is the public policy of this state that the claim shall be denied.

 

[5] Without prejudice to any legal right, this act shall not apply to a corporation, partnership, limited liability company, business association, or other legal entity that contracts to subject itself to foreign law in a jurisdiction other than this state or the United States.

 

[6] This subsection shall not apply to a church, religious corporation, association, or society, with respect to the individuals of a particular religion regarding matters that are purely ecclesiastical, to include, but not be limited to, matters of calling a pastor, excluding members from a church, electing church officers, matters concerning church bylaws, constitution, and doctrinal regulations and the conduct of other routine church business, where 1) the jurisdiction of the church would be final; and 2) the jurisdiction of the courts of this State would be contrary to the First Amendment of the United States and the Constitution of this State. This exemption in no way grants permission for any otherwise unlawful act under the guise of First Amendment protection.

 

[7] This statute shall not be interpreted by any court to conflict with any federal treaty or other international agreement to which the United States is a party to the extent that such treaty or international agreement preempts or is superior to state law on the matter at issue. (Legislation > American Laws for American Courts; APPA – READ ENTIRETY]

 

There have been a lot of States that have passed legislation or State Constitutional Amendments to prevent the precedents of foreign laws as case law in State Courts. Unfortunately the initial States that have fully gotten a hold of this idea have had their State laws stricken by Federal Courts.

 

Now why in the world would a Federal Court strike down a law that affirmed the primacy of both the Federal Constitution and a State’s Constitution? The answer is quite simple really. The initial visionaries tried to keep foreign law from getting a toe-hold in America, but because Islam’s Sharia Law was specified in the State laws and/or Amendments Radical Muslim organizations such as CAIR brought suit.

 

Oklahoma’s anti-foreign law prevention Amendment indeed focused on Sharia and was passed by 70% of the voters. Remarkably shortly after CAIR-OK brought suit and got a Federal Judge to stop implementation until further review on the grounds of Religious Liberty. It didn’t matter to the Judge that Sharia is a bigoted, intolerant and anti-woman’s Rights religious set of laws.

 

Other States made the same mistake that Oklahoma made. Then some brilliant legal thinking figured out how to make legislation aimed at foreign laws without specifying anything to do with religion; hence ALAC was born.

 

Although ALAC does not mention Sharia Law, the wording would include any foreign based law not having standing in America if it contradicted the U.S. Constitution or a State’s Constitution.

 

We have an awesome opportunity to influence the Republican Party Platform by seconding the ALAC suggestion.

 

Go to GOP.com Party Platform 2012 to register, you will be tempted to make your own suggestion. Do your own suggestion later. To support ALAC scroll down until you find American Law for American Courts and click the Button that Seconds the idea. ALAC may or may not be on page one. It was on page two when I seconded ALAC. I think (but not sure) you can Second on the comment page which is located here for American Law for American Courts.

One of our chapter leaders submitted a request to the Republican Party platform committee that a plank be added to the platform supporting ALAC (American Laws for American Courts) legislation.

As you know, we’ve gotten ALAC passed in Tennessee, Arizona and Kansas. Getting a resolution of support for ALAC in the GOP platform would be a big shot in the arm!

You can help make this happen. Visit here and look for the idea that says “American Law for American Courts.” When you find it, click on the option to “second” the idea. You can “second” the proposal by following the prompts to do so either through Facebook or by logging in.

Let’s get their attention and log hundreds, if not thousands, of “seconds” in support of a resolution backing ALAC!

Unfortunately, we have been unable to locate a similar online process for citizen input for the Democratic Party platform. If you are aware of something the Democratic Party is doing that is similar to the Republican Party, please let us know and we’ll put that out in a national email as well.

If Bachmann is a McCarthyist then she is in Good Company


Radical shhhh

I received an email from ACT for America that encourages readers to continue pressure on Congress to support Rep. Michele Bachmann’s call for an investigation of the Muslim Brotherhood infiltrating sensitive areas of the U.S. government especially since the MB is no friend of the USA.

 

Within the letter is a link to a David N. Bossie article that addresses the accusation that Bachmann is engaging in McCarthyism to conduct a political witch hunt against Muslims. Of course the word “McCarthyism” is used as an epithet related to the late Senator Joe McCarthy’s investigations looking for Communists in sensitive areas of government which expanded to a search of influential people outside of government that push a Communist agenda. The McCarthy investigations took place in the 1950s when it was evident the now defunct Soviet Union was interesting in spreading its Stalinist Communism to the USA. The USA-Soviet competition became known as the Cold War which many believe ended with the collapse of the Russian dominated Soviet Union.

 

The thing that Leftist Democrats do not want you to know is that McCarthy was more correct than wrong in looking for Communists in American government. After the Soviet collapse many old Soviet classified document were released to the public that validated McCarthy’s investigation. When Senator McCarthy began receiving resistance because his investigations did begin to extend to civil rights issues (It is not illegal to have a Marxist/Communist world view), then McCarthy began to have a nervous breakdown which ended in the disgrace of alcoholism. Until the little publicized released Soviet documents McCarthy’s name became synonymous with rabid witch hunts looking for people who either did not exist or smearing someone for his beliefs when there is a civil right to have an alternative political world view.

 

So when the American Left (who is still in denial about McCarthy’s validity) brands Bachmann a McCarthyist, they are saying she is engaging in a smear campaign against Muslims. It is a Leftist path to support American enemies wittingly or unwittingly to use Multiculturalism to destroy American culture’s Christian influence.

 

So below I am cross posted Bossie’s article that supports Bachmann’s cause followed by the ACT for America email that calls for more pressure on Congress that will take you to a link to contact your Congressmen to support Rep. Michele Bachmann and her request to see if the Muslim Brotherhood has access to classified information via MB sympathetic Muslims at high levels of government.

Michele Bachmann’s McCarthyism?

 

By David N. Bossie President of Citizens United

Jul. 19, 2012

The Arena (Politico)

 

It would be the height of folly if, in the name of political correctness, “diversity,” “multiculturalism” or a fear of giving offense, the government continues to ignore what our enemies say is their intent to subvert us from within – and evidence of their success in doing so.  If anybody is engaging in “McCarthyism,” it is those who seek to pillory and silence the few courageous enough to speak out.

 

An independent FBI report making news this morning states that Fort Hood shooter Nidal Hasan – an Islamic radical – was NOT investigated by FBI agents before the shooting because of “political correctness.”  This fatal mistake led to the killing of 13 people at Fort Hood, Texas in 2009.  National security must trump political correctness; people die when our government fails in its duties because they are worried of offending people.

 

That is why it infuriates me that Sen. McCain and the liberal media blindly attacked Reps. Michele Bachmann, Louie Gohmert, Trent Franks, Lynn Westmoreland and Tom Rooney for doing their jobs. If people actually read the letters they sent (I’m guessing most of the commentators in The ARENA haven’t) to the inspectors general of the State, Justice, Defense and Homeland Security Departments and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence they would see there was no tinge of racism in any of the letters.

 

The inspectors general should absolutely investigate whether individuals with associations with the Muslim Brotherhood are contributing to the adoption of policies that favor an organization that poses a threat to national security. The Muslim Brotherhood is the driving force behind the effort to impose a totalitarian ideology it calls “shariah.” During the Obama presidency, the Brotherhood has made huge strides towards achieving its goal in the Middle East.

 

Unfortunately, as is made clear in their own documents – specifically a strategic plan introduced into evidence in the 2008 Holy Land Foundation trial, the largest terrorism financing prosecution in our nation’s history – the Muslim Brotherhood also has as its goal “destroying Western civilization from within.”  This goal is being pursued via what the Brothers call a stealthy “civilization jihad” that involves, among other techniques, gaining access to and influencing government agencies.

 

It is not McCarthyism to state these irrefutable facts. Neither are requests by members of Congress seeking, through the appropriate formal channels, to establish whether the Muslim Brotherhood has gained a foothold and legitimacy – especially in light of the adoption of Brotherhood-friendly policies by the Obama Administration.  These are absolutely legitimate and necessary questions because of the stakes for our national security.

  

Far from being criticized or suppressed by America’s elites and politically correct police, Reps. Bachmann, Gohmert, Franks, Westmoreland and Rooney should be applauded for their letter and be regarded as patriots.

IMPORTANT AND TIME-SENSITIVE
LEGISLATIVE ACTION ALERT!

ACT! FOR AMERICA GRASSROOTS MAKE THEIR VOICES
HEARD ON CAPITOL HILL: SEND OVER 10,600 E-MAILS TO
THEIR FEDERAL LEGISLATORS!

 

Over the last few days, ACT! for America’s grassroots have demonstrated a massive force of support for Representative Michele Bachmann and her colleagues Representatives Trent Franks, Louie Gohmert, Thomas Rooney, and Lynn Westmoreland, who recently called for investigations into the influence of the Muslim Brotherhood within certain federal agencies.

See the congressional letters calling for this investigation by CLICKING HERE.

Last week, we asked you to send an e-mail to your Members of the U.S. Congress in support of the legislators’ request. We also stressed that the tangential issue upon which the mainstream media, as well as other politicos (many of whom should know better) were focusing, should not be the main focal point. The issue is whether the Muslim Brotherhood has positioned itself in our highest levels of government. The American people deserve to know.

David N. Bossie, President of Citizens United, offered what we feel is an excellent assessment of, and response to, the overall issue. We think you’ll enjoy reading it, which you can do by CLICKING HERE.

While 10,600 e-mails to Capitol Hill is a great start, we know that there are many, many more Americans who support an investigation into the Muslim Brotherhood’s influence within our government. The only way our federal legislators are going to understand that this level of support exists is if they hear from their constituents. If you have not yet taken the 5 minutes necessary to make your voice heard in the U.S. Capitol, PLEASE do so now by following the simple steps below.

***Action Item***

Please click HERE to be taken to the Contact Congress page of our website. Click on the Alert in the red box entitled: Support Members of Congress Calling for Muslim Brotherhood Investigation. From there, follow the easy directions and send your e-mails to those who represent you in the House and Senate. It should take no more than 5 minutes of your time.

Note: As you follow the directions to send your e-mail, you will see that we have provided a sample letter addressing this matter. We encourage you to modify the letter as you see fit to personalize it. AS ALWAYS, PLEASE BE RESPECTFUL AND PROFESSIONAL. OTHERWISE, THIS EFFORT WILL NOT BE EFFECTIVE!

Finally, please forward this Alert to everyone you know who shares our concerns about the Muslim Brotherhood and how the U.S. Government is addressing this threat. Through our online system, writing your e-mail will take only a matter of minutes to make your voice heard. And if we ALL act together, it will be a powerful and effective voice that every Member of the U.S. Congress will hear.
