The United States Constitution...SHALL BE THE SUPREME LAW OF THE LAND
................... the victims of sharia are watching. How will history judge us?

Islamists are hard at work deceiving the West....

In "Methodology of Dawah" by S.A. Siddiqi, a book that is designed to teach Muslims how to convert people to Islam, Siddiqi tells Muslims to present Islam in a "concocted or abbreviated form" and only introduce them to "the revolutionary aspect of Islam" after they convert. ~ Robert Spencer

Names of MB Operatives in the US, in the press but not the MSM

Exposed: Names and Identities of Muslim Brotherhood Operatives in U.S.

by RAYMOND IBRAHIM November 1, 2013
El Watan, one of Egypt's most widely circulated and read newspapers, published a report discussing the Muslim Brotherhood's influence over the United States, especially in the context of inciting pro-Brotherhood policies against Egypt's popular June 30 Revolution, which resulted in the ousting of Muhammad Morsi and the Brotherhood from power.
Titled (in translation), "With Names, Identities, and Roadmap...  El Watan Exposes Brotherhood Cells in America," it's written by investigative journalist Ahmed al-Tahiri, who begins the report by saying:
In the context of El Watan's ongoing investigation concerning the Brotherhood's cells and lobby inside America that support the regime of the ousted [Morsi], and which intensified their activities to attack and defame the June 30 Revolution, informed sources have disclosed to El Watan newspaper the names and cell entities of the Brotherhood and their roadmap of activities all throughout the United States of America.
The sources said that these organizations, which are spread throughout the States, agitated for and were supportive of the decisions taken by Muhammad Morsi's project to "Brotherhoodize" and consolidate power [in Egypt] and gave a favorable opinion to the general American public that Morsi's decisions were welcomed by the public [in Egypt]. Following the June 30 Revolution, these groups  launched a malicious war in order to incite the American administration to take hostile decisions against Egypt, with the aim of bringing back the Brotherhood to the power.
El Watan then goes on to name names, saying that the following activists and entities are Brotherhood operatives working within the United States (reproduced verbatim):
  • Union of Egyptian Imams in North America, represented by Sheikh Muhammad al-Bani
  • The Egyptian American Foundation for Development
  • Dr. Khalid Lamada, New York
  • Dr. Hassan al-Sayah, Virginia
  • The Egyptian Network in America, led by Dr. Muhammad Helmi
  • Dr. Akram al-Zand, Sa'ad Foundation
  • Muhammad al-Khashab, Head of ART channelsin America
  • Sameh al-Henawi, member, Business Association of America
  • Dr. Hany Saqr, member, Egyptian Association in America
  • Dr. Khalid Hassan, Maryland
  • Dr. Muhammad Abdel Hakem, Seattle
  • Dr. Ahmed Ismat al-Bendari, President, Islamic Society of America
  • Walid Yusari, Chicago
  • Ahmed Shadid, New Jersey
  • Ahmed al-Hatab, Indiana
  • Dr. Muhammad Morjan, Boston
  • Ramadan Ridwan, Houston
  • Ahmed Fayez, Las Vegas
  • Dr. Amru Abbas, member, Egyptian Foundation in Michigan
  • Dr. Safi al-Din Hamed, Pennsylvania
  • Dr. Hamdy Radwan, North Carolina
  • Ahmed Shehata, Director, Egyptian American Organization for Democracy and Human Rights
  • Dr. Iman Shehata, New York
  • Dr. Muhammad Amru Attawiya, member, Organization of Islamic Relief in the United States
  • Dr. Khalid al-Sayes, member, Rebuilding of Egypt Foundation
  • Dr. Tariq Hussein, member, American Islamic Relations Council (CAIR)
  • Dr Hisham al-Gayar, member, Egyptian Foundation, Michigan
  • Amin Mahmoud, Maryland

As a most recent example, El Watan quotes from an American op-ed published on October 16 (just two days before the publication of the El Watan report itself).  Titled "Egypt: 100 days later" and written by Ahmed Shehata of the Egyptian American Organization for Democracy and Human Rights, the piece appeared in The Hill, the Capitol's most widely circulated newspaper, published specifically for Congress.
The op-ed is certainly a prime example of pro-Muslim Brotherhood propaganda that actually tries to "shame" U.S. policymakers into returning the Brotherhood back to power in the name of "democracy."
Key excerpts follow:
While the U.S. must consider its own interests in the region, it is baffling and disheartening to think the current administration would choose to discount the suffering that continues to occur on a daily basis as well as the complete violation of democratic principles which it espouses to the rest of the world....  As this past week marked 100 days since the coup and the lives of the Egyptian people continue to be sacrificed, the United States cannot be silent any longer for the sake of their own interests and convenience....  To that end, Egypt represents a golden opportunity for the U.S. to uphold democratic values by pushing for the reinstatement of the democratically elected government, despite their shortcomings. This would aid tremendously in showing the world that, above any one particular physical interest, stands the mantle of freedom and the rule of law.
Anyone familiar with the real happenings of Egypt knows that Shehata's assertions are complete opposites of the truth: the military ousted the Brotherhood in response to the will of millions of Egyptians-the people, the demos, as in democracy-who took to the streets protesting against the totalitarian Morsi government.   Moreover, it is the Muslim Brotherhood and their supporters who have been committing numerous human rights atrocities-including the slaughter and persecution of Christians, the torture and murder of many Egyptians (including before the revolution), and the destruction and torching of some 85 Christian churches.
Shehata seems to think that, if the Muslim Brotherhood and their supporters terrorize, murder, destroy, persecute, and betray their nation-which is precisely why tens of millions of average Egyptians rose up against them (though you might not know that following Al Jazeera-led Western media that distorted the popularity of the revolution)-as long as they won "elections" (which from the start many authorities insisted they didn't), then that is all that matters; and, if need be, the U.S. must war with Egypt's military and people on behalf of the ousted terrorists-all in the name of "democracy" and "human rights," as Shehata's U.S.-based Brotherhood front is laughably called.
That such a shameless piece of Muslim Brotherhood propaganda can be published in the most influential and widely read Capitol Hill publication certainly goes a long way in validating El Watan's claims that the Brotherhood has its tentacles all around the United States' points of influence.

Hillsdale professor Terrence Moore: Common Core teaching notes, and standard curriculum are distinctly political

I don't know where to start sometimes with this. Common Core, the most recent iteration of insidious, seditious, liberal "educational" curriculae- becoming more and more brazen. Whatever you call it, it is definitely NOT serving the best interests of the original intentions of our founding fathers- to build America into the strongest, most successful country the world has ever seen. The shining city on the hill. The country founded on Judeo-Christian principles, a beacon of truth and compassion for all freedom loving peoples everywhere.

How far we have drifted, education is a shadow of a former self that young people like me have never been able to fully appreciate. What was education before being corrupted by fascist, communist theology?

Lioness

 The original article is from the Daily Caller here.

*********************** 


Hillsdale professor Terrence Moore, author of  “Story Killers: A Common Sense Case Against Common Core,”  exposed some of the more distressing aspects of the controversial Common Core education standards program, saying that all teachers must tell young students that all right-wing groups are fascist.
Moore highlights how it is not just the reading lists and course materials — which have already attracted a large amount of criticism — that need to be examined by parents. It’s also the teaching notes and standard curriculum; the notes and standards come as part of a comprehensive package. Moore noted through his research that a distinctly political slant is introduced, one which dictates not only what children are taught, but also how they should be taught.
“For example, take the novel Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, which is a great classic, we all know it,” he told The Daily Caller in an exclusive interview. “Just because it’s part of our culture.”
Moore calls Common Core and what goes on in school “frightening” and “monstrous.”
“What they do is give you about three or four pages of Mary Shelley, not a selection from Frankenstein, but just writing about Frankenstein, and then you will have four or five of a modern author talking about frightening stories that she heard as a child that have no relation to Frankenstein. You might see a picture from a 1950′s movie of Frankenstein Monster. The teacher will ask the class to dress up as Frankenstein sometimes to actually write an autobiography of a monster so you put yourself in the position of a monster. Why? Because monsters are never properly understood. So to figure out what it means to be a monster you have to put yourself in the monster’s shoes. I’m not making this up.
“Then on top of that, and this is in a leading text book they have five and a half pages, two more pages than the words you get from Mary Shelley, five and a half pages of a skit from Saturday Night Live on Frankenstein.”
In the skit, Moore explains, an actor makes a comment about Frankenstein having green skin. That the skit is concluded by Frankenstein saying, “Oh, so this is a race thing? What are you guys? A bunch of fascists?”
Moore also details teaching standards and notes about what the teacher wants to do at that point in the class.

What living without Free Speech will look like

 Mrs. Wolff's case in Austria is very sad, considering she was convicted of "denigrating a legally recognized religion" by quoting from the Sunna/Koran and explaining the same. Take a good look. This is what happens when political correctness replaces common sense. Worse still, when good people do not stick up for other good people, evil flourishes. Obviously, in Austria now, and in Europe, one religion is more equal than the others. 

Follow her commentary at www.gatesofvienna.net

My heart is aching for America, and what she could be again (a beacon of freedom), but sadly, is not. 

Lioness

******************************************************************

A Fight to the End

As we reported last month, Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff has exhausted all avenues of appeal within the Austrian “justice” system. Her final appeal will be heard in the European Court of Human Rights.
Below is an article about the case that was published earlier this month in an Austrian newspaper. Elisabeth sends this introduction to accompany the translation:
The march through the Austrian court system has finally come to a conclusion, though not in the way we free speech activists had wished for the struggle to end. Free speech has died, and with it our right to criticize an ideology that masquerades as a religion while reaping the benefits, both material and spiritual, of the Austrian state.
Just a reminder to the readers:
Islam, along with Christianity of all denominations, Jehovah’s Witnesses, Judaism, and Buddhism, has been a “legally recognized religion” in Austria since 1912. This entails the state, i.e. the taxpayer, shouldering the burden of religious education in schools and provides special tax breaks, among many other perks.
In order to achieve legal recognition, a religion must prove that its teachings are compatible with the precepts of the law. This is ideally done by providing the representative of the state (the minister of culture) with a translated copy of the religious teachings. All religious groups with legal status in Austria have done so; only one has not. Want to venture a guess as to which religious groups has been in arrears until this day?
As a result of this Law on Islam, one may not criticize religious teachings, even if the authorities do not know the contents of the Koran, the Sunna or the Sira, all of which make up Islam. And as a result, a conviction of “denigrating the religious teachings of a legally recognized religion” with respect to Islam constitutes enforcement of Sharia Law by the Austrian judiciary, even if they are unaware of this fact.
This is what occurred in my case. Back in late 2009, my seminars on Islam were infiltrated by a young (female) journalist and surreptitiously recorded. I was later reported to the authorities, who decided to put me on trial.
It is important to remember that there was never any victim, never anyone who felt any insult, no Muslims who complained, no imam who denounced what I had said. It was the state that took the case up in lieu of Muslims who “might be offended”. Offended by my simply stating the words of the Koran and the Sunna and musing about what these words might mean in the early 21st century in light of Koran 33:21, a verse that calls Mohammed Al Insan al Kamil, the man to be emulated by all devout Muslims for all times. That is what the Austrian legal system calls “denigration of religious teachings”; that is, it recognizes Mohammed’s marriage and consummation of his marriage to Aisha when she was six and nine, respectively. This behavior— which is to be emulated and is being emulated every single day as evidenced by news stories reporting the deaths of nine-year-olds after giving birth — will always be unacceptable.
The freedom to call a spade a spade must not be infringed due to religious laws and sensitivities. Laws gagging free speech must be repealed here in the European Union. I still dream of a European-style First Amendment that will allow us to speak our minds. Yet I realize that there is a long way to go; we haven’t even begun comprehending the magnitude of losing the right to free speech.
Do a survey on your own in the streets here in Europe. I am certain that most people will say: “Well, you should not have said what you said. If you had shut up, you wouldn’t have been in trouble. And anyway, you can’t say it that way.” As my lawyer rightly argued all the way to the Supreme Court, you may not like what I said, but I must have the right to say it. Free speech means saying things that may shock someone. Free speech is not necessary so that citizens may hear speeches by the president or the weather forecast.
To sum up: after fighting for nearly four years all legal possibilities have now been exhausted — unsuccessfully. My case has been pending at the European Court for Human Rights in Strasburg since February 2012, and will set an important precedent for the freedom to criticize religions and/or religiously-sanctioned conduct.
One final note: I will never cease fighting for my God-given right to free speech. Religious sensitivities must never trump freedom of speech.

Crayola, Common Core and Maosim.... oh my

Crayola Common Core lesson plans aimed to promote globalization and interdependence

Danette Clark Danette Clark

Danette Clark is a mom, former paralegal turned business operator, researcher, and writer. She has contributed to Klein Online and RBO2.com.
EASTON, Penn. – Crayola joins the list of big name education companies who have sold out our children and America to the United Nations’ global agenda.

CrayolaTeaching children ‘to take action as global citizens’ in an ‘interdependent world’ and to ‘think about the world more holistically’ are the focus of several Crayola lessons provided in partnership with the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO), one of the organizations responsible for the creation and implementation of the national Common Core State Standards.
Crayola, Lego Education, Apple, and Disney (among others), as members of P21 (Partnership for 21st Century Skills) entered into a ‘strategic partnership’ with the Council of Chief State School Officers in 2010.
According to P21′s Executive Chair, Kathy Hurley, CCSSO and P21 work very closely on Common Core, as well as CCSSO’s Next Generation Learner program, and the Elementary and Secondary Education Act re-authorization.
Hurley is also Senior Vice President of Strategic Partnerships for Pearson Education. Pearson, in partnership with CCSSO, has been instrumental in implementing Common Core in many states by creating and providing resources and employing educators to provide professional development training.
The U.S. Department of Education hosted the launching of P21 and Crayola’s Champion Creatively Alive Children program in 2011.
Crayola lessons, like other Common Core material, are designed to create, in children’s minds, a biased perspective of the world — globalization over national sovereignty, interdependence over self-reliance, and social and economic equity governed by a few over social and economic freedom governed by self.
Crayola recommended resources that promote social justice, globalization, and the theory of global warming are listed here along with writings by humanist and Common Core assessment creator, Linda Darling-Hammond, and progressive Howard Gardner.
Another Crayola recommended book, An Attainable Global Perspective, provides a glowing report on Maoism as an alternative to capitalism.
From Robert Hanvey’s An Attainable Global Perspective:
“Maoists believe that while a principal aim of nations should be to raise the level of material welfare of the population, this should be done only within the context of the development of human beings, encouraging them to realize fully their manifold creative powers. And it should be done only on a egalitarian basis—that is, on the basis that development is not worth much unless everyone rises together; no one is to be left behind, either economically or culturally. Indeed, Maoists believe that rapid economic development’s not likely to occur unless everyone rises together . . .”
Despite Education Secretary Arne Duncan’s continued tactless denial that Common Core purposes a political agenda, the lessons created by CCSSO partners continue to prove otherwise — that these standards have everything to do with the political and social agenda of those who created them, and nothing to do with a sound education for America’s children.

"Think like a Nazi..."

I cannot believe this one...   The original article is here...  from the TimesUnion.com, April 12, 2013. Common "Rotten to the" Core... wow, all I can say is , wow.
The following excerpt is copied from Poor Richard's News, here, with their commentary:

"If you thought the 4th grade writing assignment I posted earlier was bad, you haven’t seen anything yet.  An English teacher at Albany High School in New York actually gave a homework assignment to students demanding that they “think like a Nazi.”  When asked about the assignment, the school told news media that the assignment is “the type of writing exercise expected of students under the new Common Core curriculum.”
from Times Union (emphasis mine):
Albany
Think like a Nazi, the assignment required students. Argue why Jews are evil.
Students in some Albany High School English classes were asked this week as part of a persuasive writing assignment to make an abhorrent argument: “You must argue that Jews are evil, and use solid rationale from government propaganda to convince me of your loyalty to the Third Reich!”
Students were asked to watch and read Nazi propaganda, then pretend their teacher was a Nazi government official who needed to be convinced of their loyalty. In five paragraphs, they were required to prove that Jews were the source of Germany’s problems.
The exercise was intended to challenge students to formulate a persuasive argument and was given to three classes, Albany Superintendent Marguerite Vanden Wyngaard said. She said the assignment should have been worded differently.
"I would apologize to our families," she said. "I don’t believe there was malice or intent to cause any insensitivities to our families of Jewish faith."
One-third of the students refused to complete the assignment, she said.
Vanden Wyngaard said the exercise reflects the type of writing expected of students under the new Common Core curriculum, the tough new academic standards that require more sophisticated writing. Such assignments attempt to connect English with history and social studies.

We will be writing more about the Obama administration’s new “Common Core” nationalized educational standards in the coming weeks, but this is your appetizer.  The new school standards were passed as a part of Obama’s 2009 “stimulus package” and are not only bad for education, they’re dangerous for the future of our nation.

Vanden Wyngaard said the exercise reflects the type of writing expected of students under the new Common Core curriculum, the tough new academic standards that require more sophisticated writing. Such assignments attempt to connect English with history and social studies.

Common Core 101... Holy God!

Common Core curriculum... has been cooking on the liberal burners for years.
Written by lobbyists, funded by liberal Gate Foundation, gets worse from there. I've seen the lessons.... dumbed down, children are told what to think, not how to think...

Dod you know that "No Child Left Behind" was written by Ted Kennedy... Bush let him do it?  Didn't know that either.

More Dangerous than bin Laden? Protestors to Descend on Gulen's Mountain Fortress in Pennsylvania (by Paul Williams)

A protest against Fethullah Gulen and his movement will take place on Saturday, August 31, at Logging Road in Saylorsburg, Pennsylvania. The rally is set to start at 2 p.m. and hundreds of Turkish Americans are expected to be in attendance.
The purpose of the event, according to organizer Armagan Yilmaz, is "to warn the American people" about Gulen, "a man even more dangerous than Osama Bin Laden."
This description, Mr. Yilmaz insists, is not hyperbole. Gulen has been responsible for the transformation of secular Turkey into an Islamic state with 85,000 active mosques - - one for every 350- citizens - - the highest number per capita in the world, 90,000 imams, more imams than teachers and physicians - - and thousands of state-run Islamic schools.
Gulen accomplished this through the creation of the Justice and Development Party (Adalet ve Kalkinma, AKP) which now controls the Turkish government.
Within the past ten years, Mr. Yilmaz says, everyone who has opposed the militant Islamization of Turkey has been murdered or tossed into prison. Several Turks who escaped from the oppression are scheduled to speak at the gathering, including former Tirkish Admiral Turker Erturk and noted journalists and authors Baris Terkoglu and Baris Pehlivan.
Fethullah Gulen came to the United States in 1998 and settled in Saylorsburg after an arrest warrant on the charge of sedition was issued in his native Turkey.
Court records from his hearing for permanent U.S. residency show that his financial holdings are enormous, exceeding $25 billion. With these funds, he has established schools throughout Turkey and Central Asia to bring about his dream of "a New Islamic World Order."
Several countries have outlawed the establishment of Gulen schools within their borders - - including Russia and Uzbekistan. Even the Netherlands, a nation that embraces pluralism and tolerance, has opted to cut funding to the Gulen schools because of their threat to the social order.
In recent years, Gulen has established over 140 charter schools - - all fully funded by U.S. taxpayers allegedly as a means of indoctrinating American students in his militant ideology.
"Under the pretext of being qualified teachers hundreds of unqualified disciples are brought from Turkey to the United States with an H1B visa to work at these schools," Mr. Yilmaz says. "These teachers are to return 40% of their salaries to the movement in cash which then funds the movement. This way not only is the funding of the movement illegal but also tax fraud is committed."
The thirty-four "Gulen-inspired" Harmony Schools throughout the Lone Star State have been established at an annual expense to Texas taxpayers of $68 million. The schools are operated by the Cosmos Foundation, a mysterious non-profit corporation with headquarters in Houston. In an interview with this reporter, Sonar Tarim, the superintendent of the schools and a member of the Cosmos Foundation, said: "We have no ties to Fethullah Gulen or his movement." While Mr. Tarim admitted that the schools participate in the Turkish Olympiad, an event organized by Gulen, he expressed surprise that all of his schools were constructed by Turkish construction companies that reportedly are affiliated with Gulen and his movement.
Mr. Tarim insisted that very few teachers in Harmony Schools hail from Turkey. Yet the Cosmos Foundation has obtained H-1B visas for more than 1,136 Turks to come to Texas to teach in the Harmony Schools. He maintained that the Harmony Schools are not related in any way to the Bluebonnet Learning Centers, which represent yet another chain Gulen charter schools in Texas. Yet the Bluebonnet Learning Centers were located within the Harmony Schools and information about the centers remained posted on the Harmony website until the conclusion of the interview.
Mr. Tarim said that he and all Harmony teachers are certified by the Texas Board of Educators. Yet Mr. Tarim himself is not certified for his position as a school administrator.  He further said that Turkish nationals are not in control of the Cosmos Foundation and the Harmony Schools. Yet every member of the board of directors for the Cosmos Foundation is a Turkish national, and all members, save one, of the board of directors for the Harmony schools are Turks.
Osman Nori, the retired head of Turkish intelligence, recently alleged that the Gulen movement has served as a front for US intelligence by sheltering 130 CIA agents in its schools throughout Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan.
This claim collaborates the testimony of Sybil Edmonds, a former FBI translator and celebrated whistleblower. Ms. Edmonds says that Gulen and his movement began to receive vast sums of money from the CIA in the wake of the collapse of the Soviet Union, when US officials realized that they could not obtain control of the massive energy resources of the newly created Russian republics because of a deep-seated suspicion of American motives.
The CIA, Ms. Edmonds maintains, came to view Turkey as a perfect "proxy" for US interests since it was a NATO ally that shared the same language, culture, and religion as the other Central Asian countries. But centralized control of these republics, she points out, could only be actualized by the creation of the Pan-Turkish nationalism and religion, envisioned by Gulen and his followers. And so, according to Ms. Edmonds, the CIA became Gulen's partner in the creation of the New Islamic World Order. The money for the pasha's schools and settlements, she says, came not from congressionally-approved funding but rather from covert CIA operations, including narcotics trafficking, nuclear black market, weapons smuggling, and terrorist activities.
Although Gulen and his defenders have refuted this testimony, a Department of Justice inspector general's report called Ms. Edmond's allegations "credible," "serious," and warranting a full and complete review. Ranking Senate Judiciary Committee members Pat Leahy (D-Vermont) and Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) have offered her public backing. "60 Minutes," the CBS news program, launched an investigation of her statements only to find them truthful and substantial. No one has ever disputed any of Ms. Edmonds' revelations which she says can be verified by FBI investigative files.
Despite Gulen's global ambitions, he continues to be presented as a moderate Muslim, who champions the causes of tolerance, peace, and good-will. Dalia Mogahed, the first Muslim woman to serve as a member of the White House Advisory Council on Faith-based and Neighborhood Partnerships, says that the Gulen movement "offers people a model of what is possible if a dedicated group of people work together for the good of society."

Offensive, yes. UNbelievable... Yes. Democrat aiding the enemy, YES.

‘Offensive to Muslims’: Dem congressman calls on FBI to take down photos of terrorists


Always-unfiltered Rep. Jim McDermott penned a letter to FBI Director Robert Mueller Wednesday claiming a Joint Terrorism Task Force ‘Faces of Global Terrorism’ ad is racist.
McDermott, a Democrat from Washington state, voiced his “deep concern” about the ad, which shows mug shots of international terrorists, and asked the FBI chief to “reconsider publicizing” it.
According to McDermott, the “ad featuring sixteen photos of wanted terrorists is not only offensive to Muslims and ethnic minorities, but it encourages racial and religious profiling.”

 McDermott continued, “Representing terrorists, however, from only one ethnic or religious group, promotes stereotypes and ignores other forms of extremism. The FBI’s ‘Most Wanted Terrorists List‘ includes individuals of other races and associated with other religions and causes, but their faces are missing from this campaign.”
McDermott’s point is that two of the people on the FBI’s thirty-two person ‘Most Wanted Terrorists List’ do not have connections to Islam.
McDermott concluded that the “bus ad will likely only serve to exacerbate the disturbing trend of hate crimes against Middle Eastern, South Asian, and Muslim-Americans.”
McDermott, who has represented the Seattle area for 24 years, has a long history of unguarded commentary. In the past he has argued that victims of targeting by the Internal Revenue Service brought the trouble on themselves, that the government should issue “gas stamps” to lower-income Americans, and that the 2009 American Recovery and Reinvestment Act stimulus could be used to deliver groceries to outer space.
The congressman did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

what happens when a new leader doesn't know History: dangerous policy spells danger for American National Security... from Family Security Matters

A National Security History Lesson for Marco Rubio

by MICHELLE MALKIN April 27, 2013
Florida GOP Sen. Marco Rubio seems well meaning enough. As second-generation conservative Americans, I know we both share a common passion for this great land of opportunity. But when it comes to comprehending the real agenda of the open-borders zealots he's allied himself with, Rubio doesn't have a clue.
And his abject ignorance threatens all of us who cherish American sovereignty and exceptionalism.
On Fox News' "The Sean Hannity Show" Tuesday night, Rubio defended his Gang of Eight "immigration reform" bill and insisted that we could and should have a system in place that vets foreign tourists and short-term visa holders based on their "national security" profiles.
"In essence, we should be able to analyze (whether) these are individuals coming from a part of the world that keeps feeding into the terrorist network," Rubio earnestly explained. "(W)e should be very careful about who we allow in and take into account every single measure or every single factor that we think could lead to somebody being more likely possibly a member of a terrorist organization or involved in terror."
Great idea, Rubio! Newsflash: The concept of a national security entry-exit screening database is at least 10 years old. It's an idea that was sabotaged by the progressive soft-on-security ideologues with whom Rubio has recklessly partnered.
In the immediate aftermath of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, the Bush administration created NSEERS, the National Security Entry-Exit Registration System. Administered and championed by Justice Department constitutional lawyer, immigration enforcement expert and now-Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, NSEERS stopped at least 330 known foreign criminals and three known terrorists who had attempted to come into the country at certain official ports of entry.
NSEERS required higher scrutiny and common-sense registration requirements for individuals from jihad-friendly countries including Afghanistan, Indonesia, Iran, Iraq, Jordan, Libya, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, Syria and Yemen, as well as other at-risk countries. The basic components included a more rigorous application process in light of the shoddy visa questionnaires and undetected overstays of the 9/11 hijackers; 30 extra minutes of interviewing at ports of entry; a digital fingerprint check and in-person registration after they arrived in the interior of the country; and verification of departure once they exited.
The targeted registration of certain foreign nationals already in the country (temporary visa holders including students, tourists and businesspeople) resulted in the apprehension of dozens of illegal alien felons. As I reported at the time, these scumbags included:
--a Tunisian convicted of multiple drug-trafficking offenses, in addition to previous violations of immigration law.
--an Iranian who had been convicted three times of assault with a deadly weapon and had been convicted twice of grand theft in addition to immigration violations.
--an Iranian twice convicted of child molestation.
--two suspected al-Qaida operatives who were caught trying to enter the U.S. after their fingerprints matched ones lifted by our military officials from papers found in Afghanistan caves.
But grievance-mongering identity groups and the American Civil Liberties Union could not stand the idea of an effective national security profiling database. For one thing, a successful program would have laid the groundwork for a broader nationwide entry-exit system affecting all foreign visitors. Congress mandated that system six times over the past 17 years. It has yet to be built.
Let me repeat that: We still have no way of tracking who has actually met their visa requirements, who has overstayed their visa, and who has left the country when their visa requires them to do so. Earth to Rubio: This malignant failure is by special-interest design, not by accident or lack of imagination.
Here's a test: Why doesn't Rubio form a Gang of One and dare Washington to pass the entry-exit system his new pals all say they support as a stand-alone first. Let's see them prove they can keep even a single one of their national security/immigration enforcement promises before entertaining 900 more pages of them. Prove it.
I've read the bill -- and I can see right through it. The Democrats' history speaks for itself. The late Sen. Ted Kennedy, whose illegal alien amnesty spirit infuses the Gang of Eight's bill, spearheaded legislative attempts to de-fund and destroy NSEERS. His left-wing pals (and a few open-borders Republicans such as heavyweight operative Grover Norquist, who stood literally and figuratively behind Rubio at the amnesty bill unveiling) decried NSEERS and its supporters for fostering "discrimination" and "profiling."
Never mind that the pilot program was in line with alien registration systems around the world. And never mind that indiscriminate entry and immigration policies are what enabled so many jihadi plots in the first place.
When the Obama administration took over, as Kentucky GOP Sen. Rand Paul pointed out this week, it indefinitely suspended the NSEERS pilot program and has no plans to revive it in the aftermath of the Boston Marathon bombings.
Now the Gang of Eight Republicans want conservatives to jump in bed with these security saboteurs for another Amnesty Now, Enforcement Never plan? Who's Rubio kidding? Only himself.

WND article: Muslims tell the truth in TX- Naked Supremacism running free

WND EXCLUSIVE

'We are above the law of the land'

Muslim leader's stunning claim at Texas rally for Islam

Muslims living in America should not be bound by U.S. law, according to a leader of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, who delivered the controversial message to a crowd at a Muslim rally in Austin, Texas.
“If we are practicing Muslims, we are above the law of the land,” said Mustafa Carroll, executive director of the Dallas-Fort Worth CAIR branch.

The rally in Austin was part of a nationwide effort to hold “Muslim Capitol Day” events.
According to the event website, Muslims from around Texas went to the capitol to “promote civic and political activism throughout the wider Muslim community.”
The organizers said one major issue discussed “was the recent House and Senate bill proposals involving the implementation of ‘anti-Shariah’ legislation, where the First Amendment rights and freedoms of Muslims would ultimately be hindered.”
Critics argue Shariah prohibits other faiths from free exercise of religion when enforced, giving freedom only to Muslims.
Carroll’s statement was similar to a statement allegedly made by CAIR co-founder and former chairman Omar M. Ahmad. He was paraphrased by a reporter saying, “Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant” and the Quran “should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on Earth.”
Carroll began joking about the widespread concern about Shariah, the religious code that governs Muslim civil and political life.
“We tried to downplay Shariah, because we didn’t want to give the other side any excitement for being here,” he said.
He dismissed critics who express concern about Shariah, calling them “anti-foreign.”
“When you even say the word Shariah, people get nervous. We are not advocating for Shariah. We are not trying to make Shariah the law of the land,” he said.
Carroll claimed Muslims only want the “right to practice our faith.”
But he also said, “If you understand Shariah, the foundation of our faith … how we treat our neighbor, how we treat our parents … how we participate in society, all of that is part of Shariah.”
Carroll is on record defending Hamas, classified by the U.S. as a terrorist group.
“I think you can only blame Hamas for so long. It takes two to tango. And I think, you know, that what we’ve heard for a number of years is this terrorist, terrorist, terrorist, terrorist, Hamas, Hamas, Hamas, was not just Hamas,” he’s said.
At CAIR’s Dallas banquet in 2007, Carroll denied the Quran is the source of terrorism.
“Look at the true cause of the terrorism. It’s not somebody is reading a book, reading a Quran, and then go out and say, ‘Well, the Quran told me to blow this up. I’m gonna blow it up.’ The cause, the root cause of terrorism is oppression. The root cause of terrorism is oppression.”
Rev. Ronnie C. Lister, a social justice activist from the Houston area, spoke at Muslim Capitol Day.
“This country belongs to you. This state house is your state house. The police department is your police department,” he told the crowd. “This land is your land. … God is on your side … this is your house. [It] does not belong to the Republicans. It does not belong to the Democrats. It does not belong to just Americans. It belongs to all of us!
“We are looking for the day when a Muslim will become president of the United States; you heard it from me,” Lister said.
Islamic expert Frank Gaffney, founder of the Center for Security Policy in Washington, D.C., told WND that Carroll’s declaration of Islamic supremacy was consistent with Muslim teaching.
“When you hear one of their speakers say, we are above the law of the land – take it to the bank. That is what they really believe,” he said. “That is what all Muslims believe. That is what Shariah teaches. To the extent that Muslims adhere to Shariah, they are obliged to try and impose it on the rest of us.”
“The organized spread of Shariah is what Gaffney calls “civilization jihad.”
Gaffney, assistant secretary of defense for international security policy in the Reagan administration, noted CAIR was founded in 1993 to serve as a fundraising and political arm for Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood.
