Billed as the 'Restoring Sanity' rally, comedians Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert actually provided a venue that only served to further INsanity. Case in point is who performed there - none other than the artist formerly known as Cat Stevens, Yusuf Islam. In 1989, Islam called for the death of British author Salman Rushdie, whose book at the time 'Satanic Verses' garnered a call for this death, courtesy of the Ayatollah Khomeini.

Courtesy of Hot Air, check out this video from 1989 in which Yusuf Islam went on the record with his views. The added irony is that Islam played the song 'Peace Train' at the 'Restoring Sanity' rally.

Here is Salman Rushdie in 2007 writing about Yusuf Islam / Cat Stevens via the Telegraph:
Cat Stevens wanted me dead.

However much Cat Stevens/Yusuf Islam may wish to rewrite his past, he was neither misunderstood nor misquoted over his views on the Khomeini fatwa against The Satanic Verses (Seven, April 29).

In an article in The New York Times on May 22, 1989, Craig R Whitney reported Stevens/Islam saying on a British television programme "that rather than go to a demonstration to burn an effigy of the author Salman Rushdie, 'I would have hoped that it'd be the real thing'.''

He added that "if Mr Rushdie turned up at his doorstep looking for help, 'I might ring somebody who might do more damage to him than he would like. I'd try to phone the Ayatollah Khomeini and tell him exactly where this man is'.''

In a subsequent interview with The New York Times, Mr Whitney added, Stevens/Islam, who had seen a preview of the programme, said that he "stood by his comments".

Let's have no more rubbish about how "green" and innocent this man was.
Salman Rushdie, New York

There was something very disturbing about this performance... An added touch of irony - as if you needed one - was Ozzie Osbourne singing 'Crazy Train' at a 'Restoring Sanity' rally.


What do you get when a piece of dead legislation authored by one liberal Democrat Representative is picked up and given life by a liberal Democrat Senator? In this case, $8 million worth of corruption. The Representative was Lynn Woolsey, who introduced a bill in 1998 that would reinstate an Indian tribe that had been ruled non-existent 30 years earlier by the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA). After the BIA determined that there was no evidence the participants of the revived tribe had any connection to the defunct one, the bill sat - until 2000, when Senator Barbara "don't call me ma'am" Boxer picked it up, made some changes, and Bill Clinton signed it.

Via Rick Manning at The Hill:
Shortly after passage, the newly minted Indian tribe declared that after much soul-searching, the only thing it could do was open a casino on the outskirts of San Francisco in the town of Rohnert Park.

The tribe turned its fortunes over to two firms to make its dreams of wealth come true — Platinum Advisers, a political consulting/lobbying firm, and Kenwood Investments 2. Amazingly, and I’m certain quite coincidentally, Barbara Boxer’s son, Doug, was a partner in each firm.

To avoid immediate citizen concern about a casino popping up in their posh neighborhood, Doug Boxer’s Kenwood Investments 2 kindly fronted for the casino interests in purchasing a tract of land in Rohnert Park, as well as helpfully taking options on adjoining parcels of land for themselves to sweeten the pot. (Can I say pot and Sonoma County, Calif., in the same breath?)

Then Platinum Advisers sprang into action to try to gain community support for the casino. They apparently didn’t do a very good job, because the casino still is not built 10 years later.

According to, Doug Boxer’s take from the project was a very Abramoff-like $8 million.
The best part of all this comes at the end of Manning's piece, which only serves to validate the decision of the BIA back in 1998. The "Chief" of the revived tribe could hardly be considered an Indian, let alone one with ancestors from this tribe.
Of course, my favorite part of this story is the poor bedraggled, downtrodden Indian chief, Greg Sarris. You see, poor Greg Sarris is a Ph.D. who has served as a professor at the University of California at Los Angeles.

Dr. Chief Sarris, according to his own biographical story, was adopted out when he was born, never meeting his natural parents. At some point in his life, like many who have been adopted, he wanted to know about his birth parents, and began to research. He discovered that his mother was deceased, and his father’s name was unlisted on the birth certificate. His mother was not a Native American.
It's then revealed that Sarris' father, Emilio Hilario, was Filipino but that his mother's father had "some Indian ancestry."

So the chief of a rejuvenated Indian tribe had less than a smidgeon of Indian blood in his ancestry and was able to start an entire tribe, which resulted in the Boxer family becoming $8 million richer.

One half of the 1960's duo who called for the crashing of the U.S. economy by flooding welfare and entitlement programs, said last month that she is very impressed with what Barack Obama is doing 'under the radar.' Frances Fox Piven, the female half of the Cloward-Piven strategy developed at Columbia University in the 1960's is considered a hero by the Progressive movement. That would be the same Columbia attended by Barack Obama and William Ayers.

Via Discover the Networks:
In their 1966 article, Cloward and Piven charged that the ruling classes used welfare to weaken the poor; that by providing a social safety net, the rich doused the fires of rebellion. Poor people can advance only when "the rest of society is afraid of them," Cloward told The New York Times on September 27, 1970. Rather than placating the poor with government hand-outs, wrote Cloward and Piven, activists should work to sabotage and destroy the welfare system; the collapse of the welfare state would ignite a political and financial crisis that would rock the nation; poor people would rise in revolt; only then would "the rest of society" accept their demands.
It should be easy to see that Barack Obama embraces this strategy; he IS using it. The proponents of it in the 1960's were also fans of Saul Alinsky, a man whose work Obama places at the front of his playbook.

On September 20, 2010 Fox Piven spoke at the Brecht Forum, a place where socialists, marxists, and communists speak freely. Here is the excerpt from Piven in which she lauds the work Obama has done but people don't notice it because it has been "under the radar."

Anjem Choudary is probably the most well known Muslim cleric in Great Britain. In interviews, he's always taken his rhetoric right up to the line; it's likely how he got to be so well known. However, in an interview with CNN's Kathleen Parker and Eliot Spitzer, Choudary crosses the line completely. When asked by Spitzer if he is communicating with people in the United States and encouraging them to participate in terror attacks, Choudary actually says, 'Of course I am.'

I'm actually glad this happened on CNN with a couple of leftwing hosts. Perhaps now they'll start waking up.

This video montage starts with Chris 'my leg is tingling' Matthews on April 28th, imploring people not to use the 'Nazi' reference when arguing against Obamacare. His point, which could have been argued had some merit, was that if you disagree with something or someone, take the time necessary to actually debate without defaulting to the Nazi reference, thereby ending or at least changing the argument.

The video then jumps to the week of October 25th and the issue is a Rand Paul supporter stomping on the shoulder / head of a rabble rouser who actually had already gotten too close to Paul for the Secret Service's liking. Matthews dug into his bag of strong arguments and kept pulling out the 'Nazi' reference.

Uh, hypocrisy anyone?

The U.S. Commission on Civil Rights has released its report on its findings relative to the handling of the New Black Panther Party case involving the voting rights section of the Civil Rights division of the Department of Justice. The report not only finds that high level officials in the Department were involved and tried to cover it up.

Via the Washington Post:
The Justice Department has tried to hide the involvement of high-level political officials in the dismissal of a controversial voter-intimidation lawsuit against members of the New Black Panther Party, a federal commission concluded in a draft report.

The U.S. Commission on Civil Rights said the department's reversal in the case, which drew criticism from conservatives, indicates that its Civil Rights Division is failing to protect white voters and is "at war with its core mission of guaranteeing equal protection of the laws for all Americans.''
Recently, Darrell Issa was quoted as saying there is "not a chance" of impeaching Obama. If this case of ignoring voter intimidation coupled with a subsequent cover-up reaches to the White House, Issa better start changing his tune. Moreover, of all the things the Obama administration could be investigated for, the case of the New Black Panther Party should be at the top of the list.

Floyd Brown of the Impeach Obama Campaign is doing interviews on this very thing.


U.S. Rep. Betty McCollum (D-MN) led the House floor in reciting the Pledge of Allegiance back in 2002 and clearly omitted the words 'under God.' A blogger was able to find footage of this event and it managed to go viral. Perhaps even more amazing than McCollum omitting those two words while appearing adamant and indignant while doing so is how she has reacted to the fact that she actually omitted those two words. In a press release, she actually blamed conservatives.

First, here's the video from 2002:

Now for the Press Release:
October 26, 2010 -- McCollum Honors Pledge of Allegiance and “One Nation Under God"

Congresswoman condemns radical right-wing agenda of hate, intolerance and racism

St. Paul, MN -- Congresswoman Betty McCollum honors and respects the Pledge of Allegiance and believes the United States is one Nation under God. She has led the Pledge of Allegiance on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives numerous times as can be seen in these video links.

Conservatives are using an eight year old video clip to incite hate, racism, and intolerance among Tea Party Republicans. This right-wing effort to call into question Congresswoman McCollum's Christian faith, her belief in God, and her patriotism is blatantly anti-American and all too similar to the extremists who earlier this year mailed a soiled American flag to her Congressional office and threatened the Congresswoman with violence.

Congresswoman McCollum rejects this radical agenda and condemns the extremist tactics behind this poisonous political exploitation of the Pledge of Allegiance.
The site that originally posted the video from 2002, Norcalblogs, is reporting that McCollum staffers are posting comments on his site and one of the arguments - if you can believe this one - is that McCollum didn't say "Under God" because she was taking a breath.

U.S. Rep. from Texas, Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Houston) is apparently trying to leverage two things in her favor while reaching out to Attorney General Eric Holder - she's black and she's a Democrat. Perhaps she was further emboldened by how the New Black Panther Party case of voter intimidation was handled by Holder's department. Lee is calling on Holder to send people to her district to monitor what she is calling instances of voter intimidation. I'm not making this up.

Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) is asking the Department of Justice to investigate whether tea party groups are intimidating black and Hispanic voters in her district.

Jackson Lee has asked Attorney General Eric Holder to send poll monitors to her district on Nov. 2 to make sure the King Street Patriots, a local conservative voter turnout and tea party group, aren’t stopping people from voting.

“Many of these incidents of voter intimidation have been occurring in predominately minority neighborhoods and have been directed at African-Americans and Latinos,” she said in the letter. “It is unconscionable to think that anyone would deliberately employ the use of such forceful and intimidating tactics in 2010 to undermine the fundamental, constitutional right to vote.”
The Politico article goes on to say that the King Street Patriots are openly welcoming such visits. In fact, in light of what was revealed last week, Lee may be overplaying her hand as there are written accounts from poll watchers in her district that she herself was electioneering at voting booths in her district.

Via Liberty Pundits:
Sheila Jackson-Lee (D-Houston) violated election laws when, on Tuesday, October 19 [corrected: date was wrongly noted as the 18th], she entered into Acres Home Multiservice Community Center, walked to where the voting booths were looking for the poll watchers, greeted voters there, and then found and confronted the poll watchers before being directed to, and then asked by, the presiding judge Bernard Gurski to leave the area.
Let's get this straight. An elected official is electioneering at polling stations within her district, is asked to leave for violating the law, and then that same elected official complains to the U.S. Attorney General that voter intimidation is taking place.

Huh? It gets better. Lee apparently tried to confront the alleged voter intimidation first hand while electioneering illegally at the polling station:
While this occurred, the poll watcher heard Lee loudly say to the crowd in the voting area,”I’ve heard a lot of complaints about voter intimidation by poll watchers. I am not going to allow voter intimidation.”

The poll watcher started writing the incident down.

Lee then went to the poll watcher and asked,”What’s your name? Who do you represent?”

A poll watcher is not allowed to speak in the polling area, so directed Congresswoman Lee to the presiding judge. The poll watcher said that Congresswoman Lee indicated that she wanted names to report to the Department of Justice for voter intimidation.
Perhaps we are witnessing some unintended consequences for the leadership of the Justice Department after they so egregiously dropped voter intimidation charges against the Black Panthers. A U.S. Representative allegedly breaks election laws and is attempting to intimidate those who upheld those laws through the U.S. Department of Justice.

We're about to see if Eric Holder has any limit at all to how low he'll go.

And you thought John Kerry couldn't get any lower than what he did in 1971, comparing American troops to 'Jengis Kahn.' Well, apparently he can. While attending a groundbreaking ceremony in his home state, an Imam concluded the proceedings by exhorting everyone to chant, 'Allah hu Akbar' and Senator Kerry allegedly obliged - twice.

Via New English Review:
He delivered a Muslim prayer, did this Abdullah Farooq who once told Muslims they should, if they felt it necessary, "reach for their guns," and he asked the whole audience to join him in proclaiming "Allahu Akbar" -- a Muslim statement of elation -- of elative and relative triumph over the Infidels, for Allah is the Greatest, and Allah is also Greater for it says not that "God is Great" but that "God, the Muslim God, Allah," is greater than the God of the Christians or the Jahweh of the Jews.

And when the audience did as it was told, he berated them for not being enthusiastic and loud enough, and insisted that again they all say with him, this time more loudly, and with feeling: : Allahu Akbar.

And so they dutifully, or sheepishly, did.

And among those who lustily shouted "Allahu Akbar" was the man sitting next to Abdullah Farooq: Senator John Kerry.
Of course, though he didn't attend, earlier this year, Kerry was invited to speak at a CAIR event alongside Tariq Ramadan, the grandson of the Muslim Brotherhood founder, Hassan al-Bana.

There will be two primary Fort Hood memorial services one year after the shootings that left 14 dead and 35 wounded on November 5, 2009. One will span two days - November 5 and 6. It will be sponsored by the City of Killeen (Fort Hood). It is sanctioned by the City and the military. Its purpose is to commemorate the fallen and the wounded but the truth about the ideology of the shooter, Nidal Malik Hasan is certain to be ignored.

Enter the other memorial, which is being sponsored by the International Counter-Terrorism Officers Association on November 21st. It is being organized by the Forum For Middle Eastern Understanding. The local ABC affiliate there - KXXV News Channel 25 - reported on the story of a letter that was sent out by the Killeen Chamber of Commerce last week.

That letter, as well as several billboards (pictured) that popped up in the area are serving as a source of controversy. One of the billboards is said to be very close to the entrance of Fort Hood. Here is an excerpt from the KXXV report:
The "Fort Hood Memorial" event name is also the same name for the planned Fort Hood memorial structure next to the Killeen Conference Center. Killeen chamber officials wouldn't go on camera but said the letter was straight-forward in making a difference between the two for its members, and not an attempt to take donations away.

Davies still feels it's an attempt to drag his donations down. He also says it's the nature of his speakers that might have some people worried. At least two former Jihadists turned counter-terrorist spokespersons are scheduled to make speeches.

The events are planned on separate days. The Fort Hood memorial unveiling is on November 5th, and the Forum for Middle-East Understandings event is on November 21st.
Here is the video report from KXXV.

There will be two memorials to commemorate the first anniversary of the Fort Hood massacre. One will span two days, with the memorial ceremony on November 5th and a 'celebration' on November 6th. The Killeen Chamber of Commerce is billing those days as being the 'official events.' The City of Killeen is responsible for organizing the off-post event. The other memorial will be held on November 21st at the Killeen Civic Center and his being organized by the Forum for Middle Eastern Understanding.

Here is the press release via Special Guests:
HOUSTON, TX (Oct. 27, 2010)-- A Memorial for the Ft. Hood Fallen scheduled for Nov. 21, 2010 has been many months in the making. But instead of joining the solemn assembly, The Killeen, TX Chamber of Commerce is playing politics by only promoting a Nov. 5 event and attempting to thwart the Nov. 21 memorial service.

The Killeen Chamber went so far as to issue a letter to its members stating that they are supporting the Nov 5th, and are not supporting Nov 21st event. They have also insinuated that there is a money issue, and that the 'competing' event's sponsor, The Forum For Middle East Understanding, has been "pressuring" local businesses to sponsor the Nov. 21st event. They have further stated to members that our event is being misrepresented as a memorial service.

Conducting interviews on this topic are Keith Davies, executive director of The Forum for Middle East Understanding, and Michael Riker, president of the International Counter Terrorism Association and retired detective of Prince Georges County Police Dept. in Maryland.

"Why is the Chamber of Commerce of Killeen even taking sides one way or the other?" asks Keith Davies, adding, "I would not expect their animosity."

What adds insult to injury is that the memorial service and symposium for the Ft. Hood victims is proudly a private affair funded by donors, ticket sales and sponsors. The overall cost of the private sector event is in excess of $80,000, while the Nov. 5th memorial service is totally funded by the 'deep pockets' of U.S. taxpayers.

"We are offering Killeen businesses the opportunity to participate as a sponsor, said Davies, "but no one is pressuring anyone as insinuated by the Chamber."

Keith Davies says he has not been in communication with the Killeen Chamber of Commerce and wonders why they have so much animosity toward the second event. Keith believes the answer is likely the ongoing issue of political correctness, the very reason why the Ft. Hood tragedy occurred in the first place, and the root cause of similar incidents, because of the lack of resolve necessary to properly address the issues and roots of terrorism.

Said Davies, "Our conference wishes to truly honor those soldiers and civilians who lost their lives with a memorial service, and then present terrorism experts who are not afraid to share the truth with the American people. We dishonor our men and women in uniform, and put them at greater risk by not speaking the truth or facing the facts about Jihadist Terrorists like Major Nidal Hasan, whose hidden agenda killed 14 and wounded 35.”

The theme of this memorial event is DIVERSITY STARTS WITH THE TRUTH, which will be held at the Killeen Conference Center Nov. 21st, 2-8 PM Central Time. A primary sponsor of the event is the ICTOA (International Counter Terrorism Officers Association). Among the five keynote speakers, each of whom are experts in terrorism, are former military officers, law enforcement officers and two former Jihadist terrorists, Walid Shoebat and Kamal Saleem, who want to share with the world the root causes of terrorist and what can be done to fight the spread of terrorism.
There appears to be a controversy bubbling over opposing memorial events at Fort Hood.

The maker of the multiple ACORN videos from last year that crippled the organization, James O'Keefe has certainly fired a couple of duds since then but his latest work, which exposes the New Jersey Teachers Association as engaging in despicable behavior and apparent voter fraud, lands another haymaker. If this video report isn't as big as the ACORN videos - in some ways, it may be bigger - it's definitely a close second. It also serves as the quintessential contrast between what the mainstream media ISN'T doing and what citizen journalists ARE doing - actual journalism.

As the nice little cherry on top, check out this interview of James O'Keefe by an anchor with a local Fox affiliate. The anchor is obviously unhinged for no apparent reason as O'Keefe calmly explains his side. The most obvious reason for the anchor's demeanor is that as a paid professional journalist, he got thoroughly SKUNKED AND PUNKED by members of the population he is charged with serving.

When you factor in the level of embarrassment this man must feel, it's actually kind of easy to understand, though not excuse, his indignation.


In fairness to press secretary Robert Gibbs, how can anyone be expected to lie so incessantly that the truth NEVER comes out? At a recent press briefing, a reporter attempted to hold the administration accountable by asking Gibbs how long Obama was going to use the metaphor about the Republicans driving the country into a ditch while standing back drinking slurpees as the Democrats work to get it out of the ditch. He was trying to get Gibbs to give him an answer regarding when it becomes the Democrats' responsibility.

Gibbs' response? We know that the car in the ditch has an "Obama bumper sticker" on it.

This attempt at citing a source was so pathetic, even Joy Behar couldn't carry it through to the finish line. She stopped on the last letter of the group 'Media Matters' which is perhaps the most far left group in America today. Instead she says 'Media Matter type groups' when citing a source for someone who has determined that NPR is 'very balanced, unlike Fox.' Media Matters is an arm of George Soros while Behar calls Fox the 'arm of the Republican Party.'

Let's re-cap. Juan Williams, a devout yet polite liberal is fired from NPR for innocuous comments he made about his own personal reaction to being on a plane with others wearing 'Muslim garb.' Williams is obviously too far right for NPR who has absolutely ZERO conservative viewpoints working there.

Conversely, Juan Williams (liberal) has been a contributor to Fox for years. Fox has plenty of liberal commentators. In fact, both sides are represented in debates. Bob Beckel, Kirstin Powers, Alan Colmes, Jason Levine, Leslie Marshall, just to name a few. Let's also not forget that Shepard Smith is a liberal too and he has his own show(s) on Fox.

Notice the headline of this post includes quotations around Obama's words. While appearing on a very popular hispanic radio show, he exhorted latinos to 'punish our enemies' on November 2nd. Notice that exhortation did not include the word 'legal.' In light of what the Department of Justice is doing to Arizona, this takes on a more incendiary tone. If you had any doubts about that lawsuit against the state of Arizona being about making enemies of the American people, that doubt should be removed after listening to this.

Those planning to vote against the Democrats on November 2nd are considered 'enemies' of this president. Again, did you notice the quotes?

I don't know what's more absurd here, these pathetic allegories on the part of a guy who was forced out of the Obama administration once it became too politically damaging for the administration to keep him, or the brainwashed lemmings in the audience who think he's so brilliant. Remember, Van Jones is still with John Podesta's Center for American Progress (CAP) which basically writes White House policy.

Here he is, Obama's former Green Jobs czar talking at UC Berkeley Law School on October 14, 2010 - less than three weeks before the election. He concedes that Cap and Trade will not get foisted onto the American people via the legislative process but then calls for the EPA to simply implement it.

On October 23rd, Cliff Kincaid of America's Survival attended 'Green Fest' in Washington, D.C. In attendance was none other than Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn as well as Code Pink's Media Benjamin. This event was fresh off the heels of an exhaustive report completed by Kincaid in which he explored the extremely likely possibility that Bernadine Dohrn planted the bomb that killed San Francisco police officer Brian McDonnell in February of 1970. Larry Grathwohl, whom you hear Kincaid refer to in the first video was an FBI informant at the time and testified under oath that Bill Ayers told him Dohrn planted that bomb.

I posted the first video before but here are all three including comments from Kincaid at America's Survival: Kincaid: Video One: Bernardine Dohrn, who praised the Manson Family mass murders, tells America's Survival, Inc. President Cliff Kincaid to get away when he questions her about her involvement in the bombing murder of Police Sergeant Brian V. McDonnell. "Preposterous," she says., Her husband Bill Ayers (with the ear ring) rescues her from Kincaid. Finally, a Dohrn groupie grabs Kincaid's camera and it goes black. The beginning of the video shows Dohrn talking with Medea Benjamin of Code Pink. She calls Kincaid the "pack of lies guy" because of his questions during the question-and-answer period following their remarks.

Kincaid: Video Two: Dohrn says she is not insane or a murderer. Ayers and Dohrn talk about revolutionary movements at Green Fest and denounce questions from Cliff Kincaid as a "pack of lies." The questions were about Dohrn praising the Manson Family murders and the dedication of their Praire Fire Manifesto to Sirhan Sirhan, the assassin of Robert F. Kennedy. Dohrn talks about "our past" and the "handouts" distributed by Cliff Kincaid and Trevor Loudon about their involvement in terrorism. She says they are "pawns" to get at Obama.

Kincaid: Video Three: "Green Fest" conference organizer Kevin Danaher (of Global Exchange) tells Cliff Kincaid that he won't talk on the record about why they invited unrepentant communist terrorists Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn to their event The silence is deafening. "Do you want to stay in the event?" Danaher asks, implying that Kincaid could be booted out. "Are you going to call the police on me?" Kincaid asks.


Florida Governor Charlie Crist is circling the drain in more ways than one these days.

To say that Karl Rove's appearance on CBS' Face the Nation was a case of guest dressing down host and paddling him for eight minutes comes as close to not being a metaphor as you can get. In fact, the only thing Karl Rove didn't say that he should have was, 'Is that the best you can do, Bob?' Try as he might, Schieffer could not get around the blatant hypocrisy when he attempted to call Rove on the matter of unnamed contributors. Rove continued to bring it back to the lack of outrage when the left does it.

Instead of acknowledging the point, Schieffer kept wanting to go back to 'the original question.' I didn't think there was anything left of the mask on the liberal media but Schieffer pulled off another layer with this blatantly biased line of questioning.

Rove almost - note, I said 'almost' - redeems himself for the treatment he gave Christine O'Donnell.

Not sure if this was an attempt to walk back her suggestion that newly fired news analyst Juan Williams seek the help of his 'psychiatrist' or to just pile on. Either way, NPR Chief Executive Vivian Schiller probably would have been better off if she'd have put the shovel down. Instead, after hitting rock bottom, she continues to dig. What further proof does one need to conclude that the left uses matters of race to further an agenda, not promote equality?

Vivian Schiller apparently felt compelled to clarify her 'psychiatrist' remark by granting the New York Times an interview. Here is what Schiller said:
The reason that we terminated his contract is because of our news ethics guidelines.

The guidelines are based on the same news ethics guidelines of the Society of Professional Journalists, and are very similar to that of The New York Times and many other news organizations.

He had several times in the past violated our news code of ethics with things that he had said on other people’s air. I’m not aware of any problem with any things he has said on our air. In each of those instances, we called him on it; we had a discussion; we asked him not to do it again. It happened several times. What happened a few days ago was the latest in a series of incidents.

I can’t characterize that this was better or worse or less egregious or more egregious than any other time. The point is, this was the latest in a series of incidents.

You give people second chances — we’re big believers in that and we do it all the time — but it happened again and again. And so we made the decision at this point that we had to draw the line somewhere.

A reasonable person could say, “Well why didn’t you make the decision last time this time or the time before?” Or, “Why didn’t you wait until the next time?” Fair enough.

We made the decision here because, at a certain point, if someone keeps not following your guidance, you have to make a break. And that’s what we did. And that is the sole reason.
No, Ms. Schiller; you made the decision this time because you were intimidated by the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), an Islamic group with ties to nefarious terror organizations.

The CAIR issue was addressed in the New York Times article as well:
Some critics of the firing have questioned whether NPR caved in to pressure from the Council on American-Islamic Relations, or CAIR for short. The group, which advocates for Muslims, released a statement on Wednesday calling on NPR to address Mr. Williams’s comments on Fox, and a few hours later the termination decision was announced.

“I have actually not seen the statement from CAIR,” Ms. Schiller said Friday evening. “We don’t make decisions like this based on influence. We don’t make decisions based either on political pressure or financial pressure. That’s not the way we make decisions like this. They’re based on own ethics and our own news values at NPR.”
Gee, I wonder if lying is acceptable under NPR's ethics. They were shown to have done so in their dealings with Steve Emerson in 1998 over a very similar issue involving another Muslim group, the Arab American Action Network (AAAN) Vice president Ali Abunimah.

Cliff Kincaid of America's Survival was at the Green Fesitval on October 23rd and confronted both Bernadine Dohrn and Bill Ayers over the murder of San Francisco police officer Brian McDonnell. First, he confronts Dohrn as the latter is talking with Code Pink's Media Benjamin. After getting more than just a little defensive and upon hearing the name Larry Grathwohl, Bill Ayers shows up to run interference. Take note of how red he is. Kincaid and Grathwohl have the truth on their side and these two derelicts know it.

Notice what Ayers says after Kincaid asks him a fact-based question. He doesn't answer it at all; he simply calls Kincaid delusional.


It's amazing to watch this Obama Justice Department rack up cases it refuses to prosecute - like the voter intimidation case involving the Black Panthers - or the bogus ones it files - like suing Arizona for enforcing its own immigration law. There is another one that has been around for 40 years that consists of mounting evidence that Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn were involved in the murder of a San Francisco police officer named Brian McDonnell on February 16, 1970.

FBI Informant Larry Grathwohl testified under oath that Bill Ayers told him that Dohrn placed the bomb in front of the Park Police station that killed McDonnell. This is not new but evidence continues to mount and there is no statue of limitations on murder. Via World Net Daily:
"My greatest fear today is that the Department of Justice (under Obama appointee Eric Holder) will protect these terrorists by blocking an attempt to bring them to justice," Grathwohl said. "Consider that President Obama held his first fundraiser at the home of Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dorhn when he was running for the state Senate in Illinois.

"Do you think there might be some resistance to placing these two people on trial for the murder of Brian McDonnell? These are President Obama's friends. He and Bill served on a board and appeared at functions together."

Grathwohl said a resolution would be for Congress to act.

"I urge the new Congress to create a committee or subcommittee to facilitate the efforts of law enforcement in bringing terrorists to justice. For example, a new House Internal Security Committee can assist in that regard. The Senate could consider reinstating a Senate Internal Security subcommittee. Such committees should also investigate the groups that represent a current danger to the internal security of this country," he said.
It was reported last year that the DOJ and local law enforcement put pressure on a group of retired San Francisco police officers to stop talking about this case but a group known as the Phoenix task force has remained undeterred in its efforts to investigate.
Of the McDonnell bombing, Grathwohl has quoted Ayers saying, "It was a success. But it's a shame when someone like Bernardine has to make all the plans, make the bomb and then place it herself. She should have to do only the planning."

In the conference remarks, Grathwohl said, "The charges have not yet been brought in this 'cold case' but I can tell you that a law enforcement entity called the Phoenix Task Force is working to solve the murder of Sergeant McDonnell as well as other police officers who died in the line of duty during that period of Weather Underground violence and terrorism."

Grathwohl continued, "Justice can still be done. And that is why I am here today. I have recently met with the lieutenant in charge of the Phoenix Task Force. … He assures me that the effort remains focused and the motivation is to gather the evidence and bring the killers to justice. I should add that the murder of Sergeant John Young by the Black Liberation Army when they attacked the Ingleside Police Station in 1971 has been solved and successfully prosecuted."
As this conservative ascendancy continues, if the Phoenix Task Force brings enough evidence to the fore one day, perhaps justice will be done. In either case, this is yet another headache for Eric Holder.

HERE are Grathwohl's prepared remarks at the October 21st conference.

Tamika Francis attempted to participate in early voting at a Fiesta grocery store in Houston and was turned away because she had a Barack Obama t-shirt on. She was told it either goes inside out or goes away. She didn't accept it and called local television news reporters from KHOU out to have her story told. Tamika obviously stuck around until they showed up. I'm not saying she DID call them but odds are good.

She then attempts to make the argument that because Obama is not in the election, she should be allowed to wear the shirt. Uh, not so much. Indignant, Tamika demanded that the Harris County Clerk show her the law that prohibits such a thing. Hector de Leon obliged by citing Texas Election code 85.036, which says:
“...during the time of an early voting polling place is open for the conduct of early voting, a person may not electioneer for or against any candidate, measure, or political party in or within 100 feet of an outside door through which a voter may enter the building or structure in which the early voting polling place is located.”
Tamika was at the Fiesta store with her mother. Did it seem like the camera was focusing on the mother's walking cane or is that just me?

On September 19th, Barack Obama quoted from the Declaration of Independence and omitted the phrase 'endowed by our creator.' He did so again during another speech. On October 19th, Les Kinsolving of the White House press corps. called press secretary Robert Gibbs on the omission. Gibbs' response was true to form in his long line of lame responses. He told Kinsolving he hadn't 'seen the comments' and then assured him that the 'president believes in the Declaration of Independence.' Perhaps Gibbs asked for a bone from the president and got him to put 'Our creator' back in on October 22nd.

The judges in the trial of Geert Wilders found the perfect way to get out of a very uncomfortable position after the prosecution recommended last week that charges be dropped. Whether it was their intention to step down from the proceedings because the Defense accused them of bias matters little.

Via Reuters:
Oct 22 (Reuters) - A Dutch court approved on Friday a request from anti-Islam politician Geert Wilders to have new judges for his trial on charges of inciting hatred against Muslims.
Wilders made this request earlier in the proceedings but it was declined. The court has now agreed with Wilders and has stepped down based on claims that a court official has attempted to intimidate one of the defense's witnesses.

Via Dutch News:
Geert Wilders' trial on inciting hatred charges in Amsterdam took a new twist on Friday after it emerged another court official may have tried to pressure one of the defence witnesses.

The allegations, in De Pers newspaper, led Wilders' lawyer Bram Moszkowicz to again ask for the judges to be dismissed because they refused to rule on whether the witness should be recalled.

Wilders broke his silence to call personally for new judges. The trial is 'a great big mess', Wilders told the special panel considering the request.
The Monsters & Critics website is reporting that one of the judges tried to influence one of the defense witnesses at a dinner.
Wilders had filed the partiality complaint on grounds that one member of the panel of judges had attempted to influence an expert on Islam, who was being called on as a witness in the proceedings.

When the expert witness, an Arabic scholar, divulged the attempt to influence him, he was no longer allowed by the panel of judges as a witness. Thereupon Wilders' lawyers filed suit declaring that he 'had not the slightest trust' any longer in the judges.

In the wake of the ruling, it meant that a new panel of judges would have to be found to carry out proceedings against Wilders.
This is a huge victory for Geert Wilders, made even more so by revelations and admission by the court itself that he was a victim of judicial bias.

The judges should be investigated.


Cliff Kincaid, president of USA Survival has just completed an exhaustive expose into the Marxism that is running all through this country and at the highest levels of government. As part of this report, Kincaid interviewed two people about their knowledge of the Park Station Police office in San Francisco in early 1970. There is strong evidence that Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn are responsible for that bombing, which killed police officer Brian McDonnell.

Kincaid interviewed former FBI investigator Max Noel and FBI informant Larry Grathwohl, who penetrated the Weather Underground. Both testified under oath in the 1970's about what they knew regarding the bombing. Kincaid's interview with Noel and Grathwohl is in seven parts. You're urged and encouraged to check them out. The case of Brian McDonnell is still open - in fact, there's still a $100,000 reward for information leading to arrests.

VIEW for yourselves and see if you think it's possible that Ayers and Dohrn got away with killing a cop.

Don't be confused by the headline. This is great news. South Carolina Senator - and the man who should be the Republican nominee in 2012 - Jim DeMint says he will introduce a bill that will call for the cessation of all public funds from going to National Public Radio (NPR) in response to the taxpayer-funded propaganda outfit's decision to fire liberal Juan Williams for comments he made about being 'worried' when on a plane with passengers in 'Muslim garb.'

Via Gawker:
Republican Senator Jim DeMint has confirmed that he will introduce legislation to cut federal funding from NPR after they fired analyst Juan Williams for making insensitive comments about Muslims on Fox. The Right's war on NPR has begun in earnest!

Tonight on The O'Reilly Factor, Bill O'Reilly followed his Fox colleague Mike Huckabee in calling for "an immediate suspension of all public money going to NPR" because of Williams' firing. He also added, "We understand [South Carolina] Senator Jim Demint will introduce legislation to defund that enterprise. No taxpayer money should be going to an outfit that abuses free speech." (CNN has confirmed DeMint's intention.)
So the most conservative senator in Congress is choosing to come to the defense of a liberal. Yeah, the skeptical left will say DeMint is using Williams to further an agenda but how can they deny that Williams was unfairly terminated?

Gawker even makes a rather lame point by arguing that if taxpayer dollars are pulled from NPR, then their fundraising drives will become more obnoxious. Who cares?! If the fundraising drives become too obnoxious, they'll eventually turn people off. Besides, I have a problem with my tax dollars funding an outfit that spits on the first amendment, regardless of whether the end result is increased donations to that outfit. At least they'll have to actually WORK to make up for that shortfall.

Barney Frank is in real trouble in his race with Sean Bielat. This ad isn't going to help the Banking Queen either. What's truly amazing is that there is a significant contingent of voters in Frank's district that actually thinks he's doing a good job, despite being largely responsible for the housing crisis. In fact, when you hear Barney refer to 'bubble' in this clip, it's taken from 2005 in which he advocated mortgages being given to people who couldn't afford them while saying there would be no housing bubble.

It doesn't get any better than this. The NAACP held a press conference about it's report that the Tea Party is not dealing with perceived racist elements. Adam Sharp of the Sharp Elbows blog was on hand to ask questions. He wanted to know why the NAACP hadn't done the same thing with racism in its ranks.

He then got in a shot about the falsified cover of the NAACP report before being asked to turn off his camera. What ensues serves as the perfect example for what happens when someone realizes they're losing the debate - they try to shut it down. Even the NAACP attorney didn't want to talk.

Great stuff via Sharp Elbows:


As the Pentagon was still sporting a gaping wound months after the 9/11 attacks, the man who is now known to have mentored Fort Hood jihadist Nidal Malik Hasan and the Christmas Day underwear bomber dined at the Pentagon. Anwar al Awlaki apparently said he was a moderate at the time and was believed. While he is an American citizen, he is now number one on the CIA kill list. He also had ties to the 9/11 hijackers themselves.

Catherine Herridge at Fox News broke the story:
Anwar Al-Awlaki may be the first American on the CIA's kill or capture list, but he was also a lunch guest of military brass at the Pentagon within months of the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks, Fox News has learned.

Documents exclusively obtained by Fox News, including an FBI interview conducted after the Fort Hood shooting in November 2009, state that Awlaki was taken to the Pentagon as part of the military’s outreach to the Muslim community in the immediate aftermath of the attacks.
The ineptitude of our government agencies is growing increasingly disconcerting. It definitely adds fuel to the arguments that the Oklahoma City bombing was a botched sting operation and that stories about Able Danger are well founded. HERE is a link to some of the documents on al Awlaki.


I'd say this is getting ridiculous but that would be redundant. The Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) is a group that rolls up under the Muslim Brotherhood umbrella; it was an unindicted co-conspirator in the largest Islamic terrorism funding trial in U.S. history. In the Holy Land Foundation (HLF) trial, the defendants were found guilty on over 100 counts of supporting terrorism. You'd think a group like ISNA would be shunned, right? Wrong.

Asst Secretary of State P.J. Crowley visited ISNA headquarters and schmoozed with Muslim Brotherhood members according to the Global Muslim Brotherhood Daily report, which posts the relevant excerpt from ISNA's website. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has also courted ISNA according to the report. Via GMBDR:
U.S. Assistant Secretary of State of Public Affairs Philip Crowley met with representatives from all seven of the Indianapolis area masjids and Islamic community centers at ISNA Headquarters on the evening of Thursday October 7th. The Assistant Secretary attended a discussion on the Indiana University Purdue University of Indianapolis (IUPUI) campus earlier that day and met later in the evening with the Muslim community. A retired Air Force Colonel who held senior positions in the White House and Pentagon during the Clinton administration, Philip Crowley was sworn in as Assistant Secretary of State for public affairs of the Obama Administration on May 26, 2009. Crowley’s main responsibility as Assistant Secretary is to ensure that public affairs informs public policy. From 7:30 to 10:30 PM, just under 30 local Muslim community leaders from the greater Indianapolis area met with Assistant Secretary Crowley at ISNA, where he discussed and answered questions on U.S. foreign policy. He focused on current strategies in the Israeli-Palestinian peace talks and current U.S. involvement in Afghanistan, Pakistan and Sudan.
If the name PJ Crowley seems familiar, he's the same guy who defended another State Department employee for apologizing to the Chinese for Arizona's stance on illegal immigration.

Your tax dollars at work. National Public Radio is a far left, taxpayer-funded media propaganda enterprise that has actually fired one of its biggest advocates for actually speaking his mind and being honest. Juan Williams is a regular contributor to the Fox News Channel whose leftwing views often lead to uncontrollable eye-rolling on the part of those watching and listening but he's one of the more likable libs if nothing else.

What on earth did he say that NPR so objected to? Muslims on a plane make him nervous. Via the New York Times:
The move came after Mr. Williams, who is also a Fox News political analyst, appeared on the “The O’Reilly Factor” on Monday. On the show, the host, Bill O’Reilly, asked him to respond to the notion that the United States was facing a “Muslim dilemma.” Mr. O’Reilly said, “The cold truth is that in the world today jihad, aided and abetted by some Muslim nations, is the biggest threat on the planet.”

Mr. Williams said he concurred with Mr. O’Reilly.

He continued: “I mean, look, Bill, I’m not a bigot. You know the kind of books I’ve written about the civil rights movement in this country. But when I get on the plane, I got to tell you, if I see people who are in Muslim garb and I think, you know, they are identifying themselves first and foremost as Muslims, I get worried. I get nervous.”
This is what happens when taxpayer dollars fund media enterprises - or practically anything else for that matter. That enterprise goes completely off the tracks. Being honest gets you fired at NPR. Let's not forget another NPR / Fox News Contributor, Mara Liasson, who in late 2009 was reigned in by NPR who was 'concerned' about her appearances on the Fox News Channel.

Potential upside? Now that Juan is no longer on the government dole, perhaps he'll see what's wrong with socialism. Stay tuned.

Via The Blaze, here is the video of the comments that got Juan in trouble. Go figure, the one time I agree with Williams and NPR fires him.

Reporter Lester Kinsolving asked White House Press Secretary why Obama continues to omit the phrase, 'endowed by our Creator' whenever he quotes the Declaration of Independence. Gibbs' response? He pleads ignorance that Obama ever did that and then assures Kinsolving that his boss believes in the Declaration of Independence. That's quite the defense. What does it say when the White House Press Secretary has to assure the press corps. that the president believes in the country's founding documents?

Then watch how Gibbs responds to Kinsolving's second question, which involved a quote from Obama that Fox News was "destructive" to the country. Brace yourself but Gibbs actually says that news outlets have a responsibility to tell the truth.

I'm not kidding.

This all started during Rush Limbaugh's October 19th program. He read a quote attributed to Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) that disturbed him to the point that he asked his producers on-air to get Issa on the phone in the next segment. Sure enough, Issa was on the phone per Rush's request. The exchange started out cordially enough with Issa thanking Rush for giving him the opportunity to explain how the Wall Street Journal took one small quote of his to make it appear he said something he didn't.

Here is the quote in question via WSJ:
"It's pretty clear the American people expect us to use the existing gridlock to create compromise and advance their agenda," said Rep. Darrell Issa (R., Calif.). "They want us to come together [with the administration] after we agree to disagree."
Now for the audio..

This is awesomely awesome. Issa is actually one of the good guys. If the Republicans take back the House, he will be the chairman of the House Oversight Committee on Government Reform and he is poised to do some serious investigating of this administration after getting subpoena power.

That's not what this was about and Limbaugh clearly got Issa's attention in this exchange.

First, a backdrop before checking out this awesome video. In 2009, Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-IL) was discovered to have been one of 70 members of congress to also be official members of the Democratic Socialists of America caucus. Another aspect to keep in mind is that Schakowsky's district is heavily Jewish and she has run on a pro-Israel platform in the past. Her opponent is a conservative named Joel Pollack.

In a debate on October 17th, U.S. policy toward Israel was a central theme. Attendance was high yet media coverage, save for citizen journalists, was virtually non-existent. Why? Could it be because Schakowsky's alleged pro-Israel stance is in stark contrast to her being a professed progressive? It was progressive groups who were behind the Gaza flotilla for example. This video report from Founding Bloggers is a must see.

As a side note, Schakowsky was also one of the four names given by Rahm Emanuel to Rod Blagojevich as requested replacements for Obama's Senate seat. The other three were Jesse Jackson Jr., Dan Hynes, and Tammy Duckworth. In light of Obama's treatment of Israel, the Schakowsky choice is interesting in light of this video report.

During the confirmation hearings of Clarence Thomas in 1991, Anita Hill testified and accused him of sexual harassment, with graphic descriptions. Thomas was confirmed despite the claims. The story is back thanks in large part to Thomas' wife, Virginia. On Saturday, October 16th Virginia Thomas left a message on Anita Hill's answering machine. The transcript was released and based on the message conveyed by the Supreme Court Justice's wife, it was polite. The way Hill reacted to the message appears to me to be a case of 'Thou Doth protest too much.'

Here is the transcript via Jake Tapper:
“Good morning, Anita Hill, it's Ginny Thomas. I just wanted to reach across the airwaves and the years and ask you to consider something. I would love you to consider an apology sometime and some full explanation of why you did what you did with my husband. So give it some thought and certainly pray about this and come to understand why you did what you did. OK, have a good day.”
Hill then apparently took the message to the cops. The reason for bringing authorities into such a matter is curious at best. It was obviously the first time Ginny Thomas had contacted Hill, it was not threatening, and it was intended to be private. Obviously, the Justice's wife is 100% convinced of her husband's innocence. Did Hill feel "harassed" by the message? If so, it doesn't say much for her threshold when it comes to being offended.

Testimony at the Article 32 hearing resumed on Monday, October 18th. The hearing is used to determine if there is enough evidence against Nidal Malik Hasan for a court martial. One of the accounts involved the pregnant soldier that was killed. Her name was Pvt. Francheska Velez.

Prosecutors, as well as media reports continue to refer to 13 people being murdered by Hasan. After reading about how Velez died, it should be viewed as an injustice not to include her baby as being among the dead.

Via the Austin Statesman:
Several witnesses recounted the last moments of Pvt. Francheska Velez, a 21-year-old Chicago soldier who was pregnant when she was shot and killed. Capt. Dorothy Carskaden, with the 467th Medical Detachment, testified she tried to comfort a young Hispanic woman.

"She was worried about her baby," Carskaden said. "She kept saying she was hit in the stomach and saying my baby, my baby."

Moments later, Carskaden was shot four times, in her hip, head and stomach but managed to survive.
Anyone who is pro-choice should read that and see if it doesn't make them re-think their views. The prosecution should be ashamed they didn't charge Hasan with the murder of 14.

There's nothing like getting the support of the Communist Party while decrying accusations that you're a socialist. Sam Webb, the current leader of the Communist Party USA (CPUSA) is calling on his followers to turnout to vote this November 2nd. Why? To vote against the GOP and for the Obama agenda. Remember all of those people who dismissed Obama's childhood mentor, Frank Marshall Davis as having any real influence on him? Davis was a registered member of the CPUSA too.

Seriously, how do you dismiss this one, Democrats? Via the CPUSA website, here are Webb's own words:
Some voters on our side of the struggle are taking a powder on the elections. They claim that President Obama raised their hopes as a candidate and let them down as a president.

They expected bold action on the economic crisis, but it didn't happen. The stimulus didn't go far enough. Ditto for health care legislation. The scale and pace of change has been too slow - too many people are out of work, out of affordable health care, and out of their homes.

Meanwhile, their riff goes, bloodletting continues in Afghanistan, corporations are sitting on nearly $2 trillion of idle money, profits are up, inequality is growing, and tax cuts for the wealthy are draining our treasury and driving up the national deficit.

There is truth here, but the question is: is it enough to stay home? I say no for three reasons.

To begin with the most obvious, the elections' impact on people's lives. Even though the size of the stimulus was inadequate and a public option was missing in the new health care law, both bills bring a measure of relief to millions of people. And as a friend of mine keeps reminding me, it may make only an inch of difference, but a lot of people live on that inch.

Which brings me to next month's congressional elections. If the Republicans regain control of the House of Representatives, that inch of difference (things like unemployment insurance extensions, food stamps, relief for local and state governments, modest jobs and infrastructure programs, readjustment of tax policy in favor of working people, funding for education, a real fight over military appropriations for Afghanistan) will probably vanish - along with hope for more far-reaching measures.
So when the Democrats protest the notion that they're communists and socialists, ask them why they have the support of the head of the CPUSA. Be prepared for a response that involves changing the subject.

Commies and Democrats sittin in a tree...

Often times, third party candidates are shunned from debates. Here we have a perfect example of why they shouldn't be - sheer compelling entertainment. Jimmy McMillan was one of seven candidates participating in a debate for the New York gubernatorial race. The name of his party? 'The Rent is Too Damn High' Party. Kinda reminds me of the XFL player a few years back named, 'He hate me.' I think it's safe to say McMillan stole the show. These are unusual times and don't forget, Alvin Greene won the Democrat nomination in South Carolina.

As Dutch politician Geert Wilders stands trial in his home country, accused of insulting Islam, thereby inciting hatred and violence against Muslims, actual Muslims are kind of proving his case by threatening - what else - violence against the Netherlands for form a minority government that includes Geert Wilders and his anti-Islam Freedom Party (PVV).

Via the Dutch Press:
Amsterdam - The Taliban have warned of a possible terrorist attack against the Netherlands, according to a press report Monday, in the wake of the government's decision to forming a minority government backed by the anti-Islam politician Geert Wilders.

'If the Netherlands enforce its anti-Islamic policies, it will ensure that they will be the target of an attack by a jihadist group,' Taliban spokesman Sabiullah Mujahid told the de Volkskrant newspaper.
Not sure about you but this kind of reminds me of Nathan Thurm who got overly defensive after being accused of being defensive.
