July 30, 2010 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - If one is to judge by actions, the decision by the FDA to allow Geron [a bio-pharma research company] to commence human testing of one of its treatments designed to be of use in healing spinal cord injuries, could be a crassly political move to shore up his support among his dispirited base as November 2 approaches.
According to critics, Geron's process hasn't even been proven in rat, let alone in tests on higher animals, "It's unfortunate that the FDA has released Geron from the safety hold on their embryonic stem cell trial," he said. "Even many pro-embryonic stem cell scientists have expressed reservations about Geron's trial, that it is not proven even in rats. The concern for many of us is that Geron is endangering patient's health and very lives, to make a political point and increase their stock price." [source, http://lifenews.com/bio3137.html]
Geron makes no profits as the Motley Fool notes, though it does have a considerable potential upside. This lack of product generated income is, along with a high cash burn rate, the reason why these stock tipsters suggested dumping it at the beginning of this year.

July 27, 2010 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - Acting on information provided to it by Joe Kaufman and Americans Against Hate (AAH), the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights has severed relations with Sofian Zakkout, removing him from the organization while demanding that all references to the Civil Rights Commission be immediately stripped from Zakkout's website.
In an Emailed statement regarding the matter Mr. Kaufman said, "Sofian Abdelaziz Zakkout, was formerly the Vice President of the Hamas-associated Health Resource Center for Palestine [and that the] the American Muslim Association of North America, has used its website to promote terror-related organizations and to propagate heavily bigoted material aimed at Jews, Christians and homosexuals."
July 28, 2010 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - Legislation [AB 465] introduced by California Assemblyman Joe Coto, (D), would likely draw parents into a partnership arrangement with the school to set up guidelines for students educational, social and emotional development.
The bill is sponsored by two groups; Parents Institute For Quality Education- PIQE and Families in Schools. Further, apparently the group that would direct a special program for parental involvement is the Mexican American Legal Defense and Education Fund - MALDEF, a radical pressure group.
Do not be misled by the nice sounding desire to aid in advancing student performance. This is a direct intervention in family life not just involving Mexican students, but for all students and families.
July 28, 2010 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - In a brief statement just issued by the Israeli consulate in Los Angeles, Consul General Dayan will not be appearing at an August 5 event, The Israeli-Palestinian Conflict and its Impact on Jewish/Muslim Relations, with MPAC president Salam Al-Marayati.
Mr. Dayan will be travelling during that period of time and will not be available.
July 28, 2010 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - On August 5, the World Affairs Council of Orange County is hosting a panel discussion - "The Israeli-Palestinian Conflict and its Impact on Jewish/Muslim Relations."
Slated as speakers are Salam Al-Marayati, president of the Muslim Public Affairs Council [MPAC] and the Israeli Consul General Jacob Dayan.
MPAC has represented itself as being a moderate Muslim entity despite a long history of its leaders having made clearly divisive public statements.
For example as related by Middle East historian Daniel Pipes, former MPAC National Director Ahmed Younis, "...stated in July 2002, about the then-attorney general: "I am a person who believes that if Thomas Jefferson or Madison or the like were alive today, they would go to John Ashcroft's house and just shoot him."

July 22, 2010 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - The Council on American Islamic Relations [CAIR] an unindicted co-conspirator in America's largest terror financing prosecution [US vs. Holy Land Foundation] and an organization which Middle East historian Daniel Pipes has called "'moderate,' friends of terror," is once again engaging in a stealth jihad campaign, this time against the Electrolux plant located in St. Cloud, Minnesota.
A lawsuit was recently filed by two employees of the plant, alleging infringement of a claimed "religious right" to eat while on the production floor of the plant to break a Muslim fast.
Pushing the suit is the omnipresent CAIR, "CAIR-MN assisted Said with his EEOC complaint." [source, Minnesota Public Radio, http://minnesota.publicradio.org/display/web/2010/07/21/muslim-electrolux-complaints/]
The state is home to the largest population of Somali nationals living in the United States, a result of a State Department program intended to help legitimate political refugees.
July 22, 2010 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - Over the weekend the 'Net blogs were filled with rumors that the violent quasi-military Los Zetas drug gang had occupied two ranches in area of Laredo, Texas.
In an interview conducted today with Laredo Police PIO Joseph Baeza he officially denied the incident[s] had happened, "the long and short of it is that...no it did not happen."
Detective Baeza went on to characterize Laredo, a town of approximately 250,000 as a peaceful city with 6 murders over the last year, which seems to be well below other Texas cities and far below crime capitals such as Oakland, CA and Chicago, Ill. [source, Wiki stats, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crime_in_the_United_States#Homicide]
Baeza further stated that regarding Los Zetas, the police, "have arrested operatives in the past," but that activity now does not appear to be ramping up, having been, "significantly minimized over the years," after a period of increased activity from 2003-06.
He was concerned however with developments in Nuevo Laredo, a sister city of sorts on the Mexican side of the Rio Grande river. Baeza stated that Los Zetas was freely operating there, "the activity in Nuevo Laredo Mexico is increasing which has all of us on high alert."

Faith in Action: Religion, Race and Democratic Organizing in America,

The next time a politician or a priest tells you that politics and
religion shouldn't mix, tell him or her about Richard Wood's
2002 book "Faith in Action: Religion, Race and Democratic Organizing
in America." The book details the successful raising of community
organizing for political power to the heights of religious fervor.
Though Wood is a proponent of community organizing, he writes a powerful
expose of the goals, objectives and tactics of direct action programs.
July 19, 2010 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNew.org - In another example of the press' efforts to sanitize Islam, removing any connection between it and terrorism, we find Hadia Mubarak's recent On Faith WashPost piece [source, No religious basis for 9/11, http://newsweek.washingtonpost.com/onfaith/panelists/hadia_mubarak/2010/07/no_religious_basis_for_911.html] .
In this writing Ms. Mubarak demonstrates that she, far from being a legitimate religious commentator, is a strident Islamist who has been provided by her sponsoring media organization with the equivalent of undeserved journalistic street-cred.
Mubarak comes by her radicalism honestly...
She was the first woman president of the Muslim Student's Association [source, MSA National website, http://www.msanational.org/about/advisors] widely reported as an arm of Egypt's terrorist Muslim Brotherhood. In 2006 she was on the national board of the Council on American Islamic Relations, CAIR, [source, CAIR National website, http://www.cair.com/Portals/0/pdf/2006_Annual_Report.pdf]. CAIR was named as an unindicted co-conspirator in the nation's largest terror financing prosecution, U.S. vs. Holy Land Foundation. The outcome of that prosecution resulted in the conviction of Ghassan Elashi, the founder of the Texas chapter of CAIR, and four other defendants on a total of 108 terror-related charges.
Ms. Mubarak still serves the MSA as an advisor [source, MSA National website]
Regarding the linkage between MSA and the Brotherhood, a 2004 Chicago Tribune article notes that, "While the U.S. Brotherhood was influential from its beginning--in 1963 it helped establish the Muslim Students Association, one of the first national Islamic groups in the U.S.--Elkadi thought the group could expand its reach."

July 22, 2010 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - Geert Wilders recently wrote an op-ed in the NRC Handelsblad entitled, "Muslims free yourself and you can do anything." In it he reiterated that he had nothing against Muslims but that belief in the Qur'an and having Mohammed as a role model prevented Muslims from being free and as a result develop their societies. Wilders wrote that, "Without Islam Arabs, Iranians, Indians and Indonesians have an enormous potential" and criticized the religion for making Muslims "fatalistic." [source, http://www.militantislammonitor.org/article/id/4452]
Wilders also announced that he is forming a new organization the Geert Wilders International Freedom Alliance (IFA). He plans to give speeches in the United States, Canada, Britain, France and Germany to garner support for the movement which aims to stop immigration from Islamic countries and ban sharia law.
July 21, 2010 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNew.org - A powerful ad, sponsored by the Center for Security Policy [http://www.centerforsecuritypolicy.org/index.xml] has hit YouTube in a big way, likely to guarantee baseless allegations of Islamophobia and hate speech among America's Islamist fifth column.
The video concentrates on Islam's long tradition of building mosques on top of previously existing Christian and Jewish houses of worship, a symbol of triumphant victory for Muslim armies.
Examples mentioned are the building of the al-Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem over Judaism's most holy site, the Temple Mount, the construction of a similar mosque on the site of St. Sophia Basilica when Istanbul was captured by the Moors and the building of the Cordoba mosque over a pre-existing Christian cathedral.
Point man in the 911 mosque building project is imam Faisal Rauf, whose media friendly demeanor as a "moderate" defies his inability to condemn Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood [which created Hamas] as terrorist organizations, with the Muslim Brotherhood also serving as the intellectual ancestor for most of today's Islamic terrorism.
July 19, 2010 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNew.org - While the San Francisco media is usually more than willing to cover local rallies and demonstrations, it is far more reluctant - bordering on phobic - to analyze and comment upon the key attribute most of these gatherings share in common...in your face leftist extremism.
A case in point, Walnut Creek, California where a little First Amendment experiment was staged today, a rally sponsored by supporters of Johannes Mehserle, the BART transportation policeman who was convicted two weeks ago of involuntary manslaughter in the January 1 shooting of Oakland resident, Oscar Grant, who had been resisting arrest.
Today's counter-demonstrators, supporters of Grant, were in heavy proportion self-identified Marxists. featuring some of the Bay Area hard left's most dedicated revolutionaries.
Freely circulated at this and similar events was a blizzard of written screeds, radical position papers and the like.
Typical was a broadsheet [one side in English, the other in Spanish] in support of the Revcom.us website, which touts, "This is the official website for Revolution newspaper, voice of the Revolutionary Communist Party, USA. We extend our endorsement to the site, bobavakian.net, for authentic audio recordings (and related promotional materials) of talks by the Chairman of the Revolutionary Communist Party, Bob Avakian."
The Revcom document reads in part, "We live under a system of capitalism-imperialism, a system in which U.S. imperialism is the most monstrous, most oppressive superpower...a system driven by a relentless chase for profit, which brings horror upon horror, a nightmare seemingly without end, for the vast majority of humanity..."
From this indictment, the narrative continues, "...now IS the time to be WORKING FOR REVOLUTION - to be stepping up resistance while building a movement for revolution - to prepare for the time when it WILL be possible to go all out and seize power."
Another one of the groups present at this protest was International Answer, a Marxist group which is a mainstay at national demonstrations.
Please consider the following images as you view the rest of the media's coverage of this event.

July 19, 2010 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNew.org - A demonstration is scheduled to be held today between 2 and 5 p.m. in Walnut Creek, California, a liberal San Francisco 'burb.
The gathering is intended as a show of support for Johannes Mehserle, the BART policeman recently found guilty of involuntary manslaughter in the shooting death of Oscar Grant, a young black man. It will take place adjacent the city's courthouse, which is located at 650 Ygnacio Valley Road.
Though there has been no evidence that the rally organizers intend anything other than a show of support for the police, the lefty blogosphere is already rife with condemnation and hints of violence.
Often absent in reportage regarding Mehserle is mention that Grant was a two-time convicted felon, "Horowitch said he met Grant, who served two short state prison terms for various felonies, when both men were incarcerated in the Alameda County Jail in Dublin "a few years ago." [source KTVU, http://www.ktvu.com/news/19523065/detail.html].
July 19, 2010 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNew.org - An article, first appearing on the neocommunist AlterNet website charges "Florida Tea Party To Host ?Radical Islamophobe? Who Said Muslims Shouldn?t Hold Political Office."
It is of course expected that the hard left would jump to support the baseless charges recently made by the NAACP, that the Tea Party movement is rife with racists.
Within Alternet's screed however is contained an additional critique, charging the Tea Party with Islamophobia.
What is mind bending about the charge is not any substance that it contains - of course that is entirely lacking - but that the allegation is made by the radical Muslim organization CAIR, the Council on American Islamic Relations.
CAIR was named as an unindicted co-conspirator in America's largest [and most successful] prosecution of terror funding, U.S. vs. Holy Land Foundation. During this proceeding, the founder of the Texas chapter of CAIR, Ghassan Elashi and four other defendants were found guilty on all 107 charges of variously working to fund the Palestinian terrorist group HAMAS to the tune of $12 million.
July 19, 2010 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNew.org - "Allahu Akbar! Remember the battle of Khaybar, O Jews! The Army of Muhammad will return!" This is what crowds on board a Turkish ship bound for Gaza were shouting on May 31. The ship was part of a so-called "humanitarian flotilla" which failed to break Israeli naval blockade on Gaza. A Turkish man named Bülent Yildirim, an Islamist partner of Turkey's prime minister Recep Tayyib Erdogan, was also on board that Turkish ship. A Turkish American citizen recently wrote an open letter to Erdogan, claiming: "About a year ago, Bülent Yildirim delivered a jihadist speech in Gaza to tens of thousands of Hamas supporters, declaring Israel, the United States and England as 'terrorist countries.' Yildirim addressed the Hamas supporters as "the children of paradise.'"
What happened at Khaybar back in 628/29? Khaybar was rich and prosperous and it was there that a Jewish tribe which had been driven out of Medina by Muhammad, the anything but peaceful Muslim prophet, had found refuge. In 628, Muhammed decided to make war on those Jews and subsequently defeated them. One of the Jewish girls captured was 17-year old Safiyya whom Muhammed took for himself after killing her husband. "To take women from a defeated enemy and use them as slaves or concubines was already permitted," writes John Bagot Glubb in his biography on Muhammad. "The spoils of Khaybar (Kheibar) proved to be the richest which God had yet bestowed upon the believers," Glubb writes. The battle of Khaybar became a symbol of Muslim conquest and especially of the defeat of the Jews at the hands of the Muslims.
Today, Islamists and Muslim anti-Semites (Hamas, Hezbollah, Al-Qaeda, etc.) invoke the battle of Khaybar to justify their ferocious hatred of Israel and the Jews.
July 19, 2010 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNew.org - The Contra Costa Times, a member of San Francisco's "Bay Area News Group" - BANG, has now completed a two part series entitled: "How Bills are really passed." or "How Our Laws in California Are Really Made." It is a very informative series and I would encourage you to read it on line.
It would appear to be an expose of the somewhat incestuous relationship between legislators and lobbyists. Or, as the article refers to lobbyists, "sponsors" of legislation.
July 12, 2010 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNew.org - In a breath of much needed fresh air, Democrat voters have, through a series of YouTube videos, charged that the 2008 Obama campaign gamed the caucus system in order to fraudulently install the then Senator as the Democrat nominee.
Those appearing in the video represent all age groups and many different ethnicities including African Americans and Hispanics. All relate a common theme, that thuggish Dem operatives shouted down, threatened and generally intimidated non-Obama voters.
A number of those participating in the Texas caucus told of an overheard conversation between three women and a man who were apparently plotting to stuff the caucus ballot process for Obama.
The back story here is that though the information and video interviews have been made available to all broadcast and print media, only Fox News has chosen to go public with the information and that appears to have been in limited form.
July 12, 2010 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNew.org - Islamic terrorists apparently connected to Somalia's Al-Shabaab conducted a series of bombings in Uganda today.
The explosions centered on two bars frequented by World Cup revelers.
The announced death toll so far is 64, with many wounded.
According to a report by the UK Telegraph, a severed head of a Somali was found at the scene of one of the bombings, indicating that he might have been a suicide bomber and the obvious links therefore to the al-Qaeda linked Al-Shabaab. [source, Al-Shabaab Islamists suspected in deadly Ugandan World Cup bombings, UK Telegraph, July 12, 2010, http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/africaandindianocean/uganda/7885111/Al-Shabaab-Islamists-suspected-in-deadly-Ugandan-World-Cup-bombings.html]
Al-Shabaab [Harakat Al-Shabaab Mujahideen, the Youth Warrior Movement] is an fundamentalist Islamic terrorist organization, devoted to imposing Shari'a throughout Somalia, and now it appears greater Africa.
July 12, 2010 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNew.org - The ISAF command in Afghanistan is increasingly linking that country's Taliban with Pakistan [and al-Qaeda], the effect of which might de-couple efforts, supported by team Obama, especially at the State Department, to legitimize the terrorist Islamic fundamentalist group for purposes of including it in Afghan's future system of governance.
A September 11 press release from ISAF reads:
"An Afghan and international security force killed several insurgents and detained two suspected insurgents in Ghazni province yesterday while pursuing a Taliban commander in direct contact with Taliban leadership in Pakistan and associated with Al Qaeda and Commander Nazir Group."
The release further notes that the Taliban is working with the Haqqani network, a powerful al-Qaeda linked Muslim group operating in both Pakistan and Afghanistan, "The group is known for assassinations and intimidation operations against civilians and operates with the Haqqani network in attacks against international forces."
Team Obama is fully wedded to the myth that the Taliban can somehow be defanged and turned into a legitimate political entity.
Chief public spokesman for this view is Secty. State, Hillary Rodham Clinton, who recently said that the U.S. will continue to stand with the Karzai government and Afghanistan while conducting talks with the Taliban about reconciliation, "Clinton has assured Hamid Karzai, the Afghan president, that the US will remain committed to his country's security and reconstruction even after American troops have departed...Karzai was in the US on a visit aimed at improving ties with the administration of Barack Obama, his US counterpart. He and his delegation were attending a series of meetings on Tuesday at the US state department as they push a plan for reconciliation with Taliban fighters." [source, U.S. Committed to Afghan Security, Al-Jazeera, May, 11, 2010, http://english.aljazeera.net/news/asia/2010/05/201051132016505714.html]
It is widely believed that the Karzai government, fearing abandonment by Obama, has opened channels to the Taliban in a calculated move to hedge bets if the U.S. begins its intended withdrawal next summer.
July 9, 2010 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNew.org - The DOJ has announced that a DC grand jury, "has charged Mac Aviation Group, an Irish trading company, and its officers Thomas and Sean McGuinn of Sligo, Ireland, in a superseding indictment with purchasing F-5 fighter aircraft parts, helicopter engines and other aircraft components from U.S. firms and illegally exporting them to Iran." [source, DOJ,http://www.justice.gov/opa/pr/2010/July/10-nsd-783.html]
The indictment, spanning 27 counts, including conspiracy and violating the IEEPA [International Emergency Economic Powers Act], Iranian Transactions Regulations and the Arms Export Control Act.
Defendants in the case could receive as much as 20 years each on the most serious of the charges.
According to a statement on the matter released by DOJ, "The defendants were previously charged with purchasing 17 helicopter engines from Rolls Royce Corporation in Indiana for $4.27 million dollars on behalf of an Iranian trading company, some of which were ultimately sent to HESA, and also causing U.S.-origin airplane vanes and bolts to be exported from the United States to Iran."

July 9, 2010 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNew.org - Recently I had the opportunity to interview a local, young, Latina Community Organizer who is working within a Catholic Parish in the Oakland Diocese. The Pastor with whom she is working is so enamored of this group, CCISCO, (Contra Costa Interfaith Supporting Community of Organizing) that he has placed their logo on his parish letterhead stationery and provided this woman with an office and committee within the parish. Parish committees are referred to as Local Organizing Committees - LOC. The committee at this particular church is an all Latino committee ?because we can?t get anybody else to join? she said. The Chancery takes no position on the development of these groups within the parish and, therefore, within the diocese.
The young woman stated that she is working with 4 of the 5 Catholic parishes in Concord. CCISCO is also working with other Contra Costa based Denominations and local legislators as well. Outside of Contra Costa County, in Alameda County, other community organizing groups are active within churches. Community of Renewal - COR - is one of these groups.
July 7, 2010 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNew.org - Demonstrating the necessity of sealing the United States' Southern border is news reported by the Kuwait based al-Sayassah newspaper, detailing a successful move by Mexican security officials to break up a sophisticated Hezbollah support network operating out of the troubled country.
The plot was led by Jameel Nasr, a frequent visitor to Lebanon, who was arrested at his residence in Tijuana.

U.S. based national security researchers have long noted the increasing presence of Iran's proxy army Hezbollah in Latin and South America, especially in Hugo Chavez' Venezuela.
In one of many articles appearing about this matter on these pages, in April we noted:
"According to a just released DOD report made available to Congress, the al-Quds force, the elite core of Iran's Revolutionary Guard, has markedly strengthened its position in the Venezuelan stronghold of dictator Hugo Chavez. Al-Quds has been deeply involved in Islamic terrorism for decades including the 1983 bombing of the Marine barracks in Beirut and the 1996 bombing of Khobar Towers in Saudi Arabia, which was home to many American defense workers in the region."

Judge of UK Shari'a Court Declares War on Terror a "War Against Islam and Muslims"
July 6, 2010 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNew.org - On the eve of the 5th anniversary of the UK's worst case of domestic terrorism - the Muslim bombings which took place on the morning of July 7, 2005, claiming 52 lives - Anjem Choudary, the hate preacher who formerly ran the terror linked Al-Muhajiroun, has warned that if Britain doesn't withdraw its "troops from Muslim countries," and "stop supporting the pirate state of Israel" that even worse attacks will ensue. [source, http://www.anjemchoudary.com]
The four responsible for the 7/7 attack were Hasib Hussain, Mohammad Sidique Khan, Germaine Lindsay and Shehzad Tanweer.
Choudary pointed to a recent study by the Center for Social Cohesion outlining the increasing radicalization of Muslim youth in the UK as evidence that the means to instigate a campaign of home grown terror is firmly in place. The study also closely linked Choudary's Muhajiroun with terrorism.
According to the Center's executive summary:
"Founded in the UK in 1996 by Omar Bakri Mohammed, al-Muhajiroun is also known as al-Ghurabaa, Saviour/Saved Sect, Ahlus Sunnah Wal Jama'aah and Islam4UK. The group, currently led by Anjem Choudary, calls for the removal of secular regimes and the establishment of an Islamist state in the UK. In January 2010, the Home Office confirmed that al-Muhajiroun is a proscribed organisation, as the group is an alternative name for al-Ghurabaa and Saviour/Saved Sect - groups banned in 2006. Ahlus Sunnah Wal Jama'aah, also mentioned in this report, was formed in the UK in November 2005 by former leading members of al-Muhajiroun, after that organisation was disbanded in 2004. Like its predecessors, this group calls for the establishment of an Islamist state in the UK. However, after some of its leading members were jailed in 2008, the name is no longer used."
Also mentioned in the study were terrorists allegedly linked to Al-Muhajiroun including Amer Mirza, "...the first member of al-Muhajiroun (a group now proscribed in the UK) to be convicted of Islamism-related terrorism offences. He had attempted to petrol bomb a Territorial Army basein West London," and Iftikhar Ali, "the first person convicted of inciting racial hatred with an Islamic religious text. Ali was distributing al-Muhajiroun leaflets which called for a holy war against Jews."
July 6, 2010 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNew.org - Andrew Cuomo, the lefty thug behind Bill Clinton's plan to destroy the domestic firearms industry1, wants to be NY governor [actually as long as he remians on the public dole, his official title is of little concern] apparently trolling for Muslim votes.
His opponent, NY State legislator Rick Lazio is on the record against the project.
In a NY Post article Cuomo uses the diversity dodge and multiculturalism to justify his approval of what many see as an affront to the victims of Muslim terrorism, "Attorney General Cuomo said he favored building the mosque, which polls show is opposed by most city residents, including many who say it would be an insult to 9/11 victims..."America is all about diversity and tolerance..." [source, Frederick U. Dicker, Andy, Rival in Mosque Split, NY Post, http://www.nypost.com/p/news/local/manhattan/andy_rivals_in_mosque_split_wMWJlBDZge8yF3sJlYhcRL?listcomments=true]
Lazio on the other hand, "opposes the plan to build the Cordoba mosque across from Ground Zero, and shares the concerns of many over the [proposed mosque's] imam's view that Hamas is not a terrorist organization...Rick views the questions surrounding the overseas sources of funding for this project as a potential security risk."
