Here, you are urged and encouraged to run your mouths about something important.

Although the seven hour health care summit was utterly ponderous, there were some good clips to come out of it. Whether it was Nancy Pelosi calling the Obamacare monstrosity a "jobs bill", Paul Ryan basically implying that Obama is a hukster, John McCain on the wrong end of a smack-down with Obama, or Louise Slaughter exploiting for political gain the story of one woman having to wear her sister's dentures, here are a few highlights.

Louise Slaughter on New York...

Congressman Paul Ryan from Wisconsin...

Obama exposing himself as a Time Socialist....

Obama not respecting his elders.....

Senator Lamar Alexander from Tennessee gets Democrats to choke on their own words. Take note that as Alexander is quoting Harry Reid, the latter can't bring himself to look at Lamar.

h/t to Free Republic


Living and broadcasting in Texas, I've been able to watch the dynamics of our Gubernatorial campaign unfold for the past several months. In particular, the Republican primary between incumbent Rick Perry, sitting Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison, and libertarian favorite Debra Medina has been very interesting to watch. Medina was surging and there was much talk about her ending up in the run-off with Perry.

Then came the Glenn Beck radio interview. Beck deserves credit for getting Medina to reveal that which she wasn't to eager to reveal. However, based on how strongly Beck rejects the Truthers - have you ever wondered why he doesn't lay it all out on his television show?

Prior to Texas Republican gubernatorial candidate Debra Medina appearing on Glenn Beck's radio show, she was surging in the polls. Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison was reeling, in large part due to her inability to give a 'yes' or 'no' answer with respect to her position on Roe v. Wade in each of two televised debates. Speculation was mounting that Medina would make the run-off with incumbent Rick Perry unless something drastic happened.

Something drastic did happen thanks to Glenn Beck. At the end of his interview with Medina, Beck asked if she believed the United States government was in any way responsible for the attacks on 9/11 – he asked her if she was a “truther”. Medina's answer was reminiscent of how Kay Bailey Hutchison responded to the abortion question and it had the same effect. Beck was right to pose the question because it exposed a fatal flaw in an otherwise appealing candidate.

While Medina espouses returning to the Constitution and reducing the size of government, she gave Islam a virtual pass by implying that her own government may have orchestrated the 21st century's version of Pearl Harbor. The irony is that the real perpetrators of 9/11 not only wish to destroy the U.S. Constitution but insist on replacing it with Shariah law, a fate Medina doesn't seem to comprehend.

Beck however, must comprehend it. Otherwise he wouldn't have laughed Medina off the phone after giving her enough rope to hang herself in the form of a question she didn't want to answer. That is precisely why Beck may be guilty of the greater sin. He understands the Islamic threat and won't use the increasingly huge platform he now has to break it down on a chalkboard.

After Medina hung up, Beck's point was that if anyone believes the U.S. Government was responsible for 9/11, there should be “no bigger priority” than exposing it. Why isn't the converse true as well? If Beck knows that Islamists are the ones who hit us, shouldn't exposing their intentions be a priority above which there is none bigger?

Beck doesn't go there. When is the last time you saw the Glenn Beck show on Fox dedicate a show – or even a segment – to exposing the dangers of the Muslim Brotherhood? Has he had experts like Dave Gaubatz or Walid Shoebat on his show to explain how groups like the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC), the Muslim Students Association (MSA), and many others are front groups for the Muslim Brotherhood? The answer is no.

Glenn Beck has raised the bar. He is going where no journalist has gone before and should be commended for it. However, there is a realm he continues to avoid and it is a realm he obviously understands because he demogogues the other side – the 9/11 truthers.

It was recently learned that the same Saudi prince who offered Rudy Guiliani $10 Million after 9/11 – which Guiliani rightly refused - is now the second largest shareholder of Newscorp, the parent company of Fox News. Saudi prince Alwaleed bin Talal has an interest in what airs on Fox News and may not want the truth about 9/11 to be explained. Perhaps it is time for Glenn Beck to raise the bar a little more by educating Debra Medina on why she is wrong about 9/11 while simultaneously giving a certain Saudi prince the number to the red phone.
As I've stated in a previous post, it may be time for talk radio and the blogosphere to shift gears and start focusing their efforts on what Fox News is clearly averse to doing.


Well, if Fox News won't address the Islamic threat to our nation, maybe that responsibility will fall to talk radio and the blogs. WBT 1110 in Charlotte, NC has a talk show host named Keith Larson who - while talking on-air and in-studio with a Muslim named Jibril Hough on February 26th - witnessed quite the site. Larson presented Hough with some facts the latter simply could not refute, which resulted in his painting himself into a corner.

North Carolina is also home to Representative Sue Myrick, who has been one of the few leaders in this nation with the courage to confront the Islamic threats that face our nation. I wrote about her in a previous post. When it comes to Myrick, it appears that Hough has been using Alinsky tactics.

World Net Daily reports:
For years, Jibril Hough has represented himself and his North Carolina mosque as "moderate," while putting Rep. Sue Myrick, R-N.C., on the defensive as an anti-Muslim fanatic who "shoots from the hip" when sounding the alarm about homegrown Islamic terrorism. Myrick, a member of the House Intelligence Committee, co-founded the Capitol Hill caucus after 9/11 to educate Americans about the growing threat from jihadists.
Until now, Hough has painted Myrick as unstable, Islamophobic, and paranoid about threats to her nation. Again, that is Alinsky, Rule #5 to be exact, which states:

Ridicule is man's most potent weapon. It's hard to counterattack ridicule, and it infuriates the opposition, which then reacts to your advantage.

As that rule failed to be successful against Andrew Breitbart at CPAC, it has also apparently backfired here as well. During the interview, Larson produced evidence that the mosque Hough belongs to is not at all moderate, as Hough has claimed.
The North American Islamic Trust holds the deed to ICC, an 800-member Sunni mosque located on five acres at 1700 Progress Lane in Charlotte. The U.S. Justice Department recently blacklisted its owner NAIT as an unindicted co-conspirator in the largest terror finance case in U.S. history. The government also identified NAIT as a front for Hamas and the radical Muslim Brotherhood in America.
As an aside, that "largest terror finance case" had the Holy Foundation for Relief and Development (HLF) as the defendant. HLF was found guilty on all counts. Click here for more information on that trial. Not only is NAIT an unindicted co-conspirator in the HLF trial but it is a subsidiary of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), which has ties to the Muslim Brotherhood. To be clear, if Hough is connected to a mosque with ties to NAIT, it would not be all that dissimilar from an individual having ties to the KKK.

Back to WND:
Saudi-funded NAIT owns the title to hundreds of radical mosques across the country, including the notorious 9/11 mosque in Northern Virginia – Dar al-Hijrah Islamic Center (deed) – which helped some of the hijackers obtain housing and IDs and also counseled the Fort Hood terrorist and several other known terrorists.

Hough, ICC's spokesman, at first expressed surprise when confronted with the information, claiming he'd never before seen the deed and did not know NAIT was named in a federal terror probe.

"I'm not aware of this information here," he said, reviewing the documents.

Pressed by Larson, the ICC spokesman later admitted NAIT is the "parent" of his mosque, but quickly added that he was not a member of the mosque when NAIT took control in 1992.

"I was not involved in the decision to allow NAIT to be the (title) holder," he said.

Asked if he were a member of NAIT, Hough paused before answering: "Not necessarily."

Larson said it looked as if his mosque was acting as a "front" for an organization tied to terrorism, and wondered why Hough was not more concerned.

"It's concerning, yes," Hough conceded.

"To everybody else it looks not just concerning but absolutely damning," the host responded. "Do you understand that?"

"What else can I say?" Hough said.

"Will you disassociate yourself" from NAIT? Larson asked.

"I told you I was going to look into it and was going to take it to my board," Hough snapped.
As I mentioned at the beginning of this post, none of the commentators on the Fox News Channel are covering these issues, including Glenn Beck, who is doing some otherwise extremely good work. Perhaps it is time for talk radio and bloggers to start peeling off the layers of this onion.

Ever wondered why Fox News doesn't cover the Islamic threat and the ties many of these groups have to the Muslim Brotherhood, to include the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR). It very well may have something to do with the fact that Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal is the 2nd largest shareholder of NewsCorp, parent company of Fox and has already demonstrated that he can influence Fox programming.

Keeping that in mind, look at how Neil Cavuto handles Saudi prince bin Talal during an interview in January, 2010. Someone please try telling me bin Talal has no influence on Fox after watching Cavuto suck up to him for almost six minutes. By the way, this is the same Saudi prince who tried offering Rudy Guiliani $10 Million after 9/11. Rudy didn't accept it when bin Talal blamed the attack on U.S. policies in the middle east.
