August 22, 2012 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - Yesterday the Sacramento Bee carried a press release blasted out by the Council on American Islamic Relations - an American cultural jihadist organization, named in federal court proceedings as being associated with the Palestinian terrorist group Hamas.
We have brought this practice to the Bee's attention previously and, well...they are just too busy to attend to the fact that they have been sucked into the electronic jihad via the newspaper's indiscriminate linking with PR Newswire, an excellent service in its own right.
Regarding the CAIR presser - oh, did we mention the fact that CAIR was also named as an unindicted co-conspirator in U.S. v Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development?
Anyway the gist of CAIR's latest breathless announcement is that once again Killer Bacon has attacked an Islamic sacred place, this time desecrating a "prayer site" located at Staten Island's New Dorp Beach park.
Though the space, from its description anyway, appears to be located in a public area, supported therefore by the area's taxpayers it must have somehow been declared a "bacon free zone."
August 20, 2012 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - Since the election of Barack Obama, there have been an untold number of books written regarding him, his presidency, Mr. Obama's background, his erstwhile Marxist, black-separatist spiritual advisor, the estimable Rev. Jeremiah Wright. These and other issues has been dealt with until the inevitable sensory overload kicked in.
Taken as a whole, the author's of these tomes represent the diversity of the American polity, with very few [Edward Klein's, "The Amateur," for example] having attempted to play it down the center, presenting a case as ideologically neutral as one can reasonably expect from a political reporter dealing with controversial subject matter.
Among these few "objective" works, Mr. Kurtz' book sets a standard of scholarship and fairness which remains unchallenged. If you wish to deconstruct the president, this is your wrecking ball.
Though published originally at the end of 2010, now, with the November 6 presidential election only a few months away it seems an appropriate time to examine this book in light of the current political climate and with another two years of Mr. Obama's policies in place.
Warning, Kurtz' book is not an easy read.
From the opening page onward the author's academic almost clinical approach is evident. In our view this only adds to its power. Kurtz's sense of fairness and avoidance of immoderate language itself is commendable. The author is neither a conservative attack dog nor is he a SorosBot regurgitating Media Matters' childish talking points.
Of course anyone familiar with Stanley Kurtz' impressive body of work, knows this soft spoken but forceful delivery is his style.
August 16, 2012 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - Over the last week the proverbial "other shoe" has dropped in Egypt with the country's jihadist President, Mohammed Morsi, sacking the country's military leadership [led by now "retired" Field Marshal Mohamed Hussein Tantawi] and replacing it with one headed by General el-Sissi, a known quantity
Until this action many viewed Tantawi as a kind of moderating power behind Morsi's throne.
We never fell for that malarkey, understanding that Morsi was calling shots from the get go, exerting considerable influence even before his election in a fraud filled plebiscite.
Morsi's uneasy partnership with the more hard line Salafists leaves him with no significant opposition, though the Salafists will push Morsi hard for a more rapid imposition of Shari'a. No one could stop him even if they so wished, and apparently outside of the Copts, few do.
The change came lightening quick, as is Morsi's style, instantly making DOD Chief Panetta appear foolish and naive in his fawning July 31 statement, "He is the president of all the Egyptian people and he is truly committed to implementing democratic reforms,” the secretary added. In his view, Panetta said, Mursi and Tantawi have a good relationship and are working together toward the same goal..." [source, DOD website, Panetta Says New Egyptian President Is His "Own Man" ]
Don't think so Mr. Panetta, he might be president of all the people but he is no more democratic than is Fidel Castro or Hugo Chavez.
August 16, 2012 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - CAIR, the Council on American Islamic Relations, about which Federal court documents state is associated with Hamas ["The government has produced ample evidence to establish the associations of CAIR, ISNA, NAIT, with NAIT, the Islamic Association for Palestine, and with Hamas," source The Investigative Project] along with its unholy alliance partner, the American Civil Liberties Union, the nations' most notorious leftist hired gun, recently lost a California case wherein these two entities attempted to make public, intelligence information gathered by the FBI during its surveillance of certain Orange County California mosques.
CAIR and the ACLU's stinging slap in the face delivered at the hands of .S. District Judge Cormac J. Carney, was compounded by the fact that he simply threw the case out on the grounds that such sensitive intelligence information could not be disclosed without harming U.S. national security.
16:00 - August 14, 2012 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - Multiple Internet searches over a number of days reveal that no major news organization will go anywhere near what is one of, if not the, most important story in a very long time, announced last Wednesday at a DC PR event.
As of 07:30 August 12, exactly 63 pieces had been aggregated by Google News, with the major media's contribution nowhere in evidence, i.e. no filings by the usual suspects, CBS, MSNBC, CNN and the rest.
The story is toxic.
CSPAN however, to its credit, was there shooting video of the entire event.
The news to which the above refers was "broken" [shards of this story have been seriously floating about for months] at the National Press Club in DC.
Ok, enough teasing of the story...
On August 9, the highly respected former Federal Prosecutor Andrew C. McCarthy headlined a major press event during which he presented a wealth of information regarding the influence/infiltration operations currently underway - undertaken by the Muslim Brotherhood [MB] - which have targeted Barack Obama's White House. This cultural jihad is being coordinated by the domestic representatives of the Brotherhood, many of whom were named as unindicted co-conspirators in U.S. v. Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development, the Fed's largest and most successful prosecution of domestic Hamas funding.
To be accurate the MB has been engaged in these efforts since well before Mr. Obama came to town, however the degree to which previous administrations were compromised was nil as compared to the welcoming arms of Team Obama; witness the administration's endorsement of the Muslim Brotherhood's ascension to power in Egypt and its choice of the most radical domestic MB front groups as partners.
12:00 - August, 8, 2012 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - In a joint press conference held today at Washington's National Press Club, Andrew C. McCarthy - the former Federal Prosecutor responsible for putting the spiritual leader of the 1993 World Trade Center bombers [Omar Abdel Rahman, the "Blind" Sheikh] behind bars for life - and Frank Gaffney, President of the Center for Security Policy [which has prepared a powerful course on the Muslim Brotherhood, The Muslim Brotherhood in America presented an overwhelming case suggesting that the Muslim Brotherhood, and its U.S. front groups, have long been engaged in influence peddling operations at the highest levels of the U.S. government.
Mr. McCarthy delivered the majority of the remarks, examining the many security questions surrounding Huma Abedin, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's long time aide and her current Deputy Chief of Staff.
Abedin's familial [and possible personal] links to the Muslim Brotherhood and its many affiliates, have been the topic of a furious debate since five Congressmen [Michele Bachmann (R-MN), Louie Gohmert (R-TX), Trent Franks (R-AZ), Lynn Westmoreland (R-GA) and Tom Rooney (R-FL)] sent a Congressional Letter of Inquiry to the State Department's Assistant Solicitor General, requesting a review of Ms. Abedin's potential national security conflicts of interest which might render her unsuitable to further serve within the Obama administration [see William Mayer, Congress Alarmed Over Muslim Brotherhood Influence Operation Within the Administration June 19, 2012.
09:43 - August 7, 2012 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - On July 19, Dutch press photographer Jeroen Oerlemans and his British colleague John Cantlie were taken hostage in Northwestern Syria by a group of twenty bearded jihadists, possibly from Al-Qaeda. Their Syrian guide Dahram had (deliberately?) taken a wrong turn. He had smuggled them from Turkey into Syria. The same guide had successfully smuggled John into Syria a few months earlier. On that occasion he and John had turned left, but now the smuggler suddenly turned right leading them straight into a jihadist camp where the two photographers from Europe and their guide were immediately taken hostage.
“All of them were foreign jihadists,” Oerlemans told the Dutch press after he and Cantlie had been liberated by the so-called “Free Syrian Army.” “Some of them spoke English with a British accent as if they were from Birmingham. There were also a number of Africans, Pakistanis, Bangladeshis and Chechens.” Oerlemans said that among the Pakistanis was a 12-year-old boy who spoke English quite well. The ‘military’ use of children is common practice among violent Muslim jihadists and African warlords. One only wonders if the boy’s Pakistani parents are aware of what their 12-year-old offspring is doing in Al-Qaeda’s latest battleground – Syria.
For that’s what those jihadists in Northwestern Syria claimed to be: holy warriors from Al-Qaeda.
14:23 - August 8, 2012 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - Any observer of politics could have seen this coming, especially given the recent revelation that Eric Holder/Team Obama's Fast and Furious program was intended to whip up public sentiment in support of abridging Second Amendment rights.
Infringing a citizen's rights to own firearms has been a staple of the left for over 100 years. Dictators and their wannabes are absolutely correct to fear an armed populace; such a people will not be dominated by the jack boot set without extracting an unacceptable toll on those bent on forced collectivization - a track this country is perilously approaching.
Examples of the gun grabbing mentality are myriad, consider the confiscatory tactics taken by the Soviet Union and Nazi Germany as being among the most obvious examples of suppressing the private ownership of firearms.
The modern neo-Marxist left, the people from MoveOn, Daily Kos, People for the American Way, Media Matters, the Brady crowd and probably 75% of the Democrat party are of the same ilk . These folks are ultra hard leftists, in fact they are neo-Marxists as far as their intention of imposing their will on all of us via the almighty federal hand. These drones consider themselves smarter than you and as a result they want to be both mommy, daddy and if need be chief executioner [incidentally, they have much more in common with Marxism - specifically the labor theory of value and their own vague concept of historicism - than the simple desire for power but exploring those similarities is beyond the scope of this writing].
These people don't give a rat's ass about the Constitution or about rights endowed by a Creator, they find such notions a joke, though they often do have to pay them lip service, leftists never being able to tell the truth regarding their true ideology. Their entire political world revolves around the pursuit of control - yours and mine.
