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

On October 6th, Washington Examiner reporter Diana West and founder of Center for Security Policy, Frank Gaffney asked both Director of National Intelligence James Clapper and FBI Director Robert Mueller about a Hamas operative named Kipha Mustapha who had been invited into one of the FBI's outreach groups known as a 'Citizens Academy.' Both Clapper and Mueller seemed to either be unfamiliar with Mustapha or disinterested in explaining why such a man had been embraced by the FBI.

Since that conference, the Investigative Project on Terrorism has published a report on Mustapha's background and it is - to say the least - beyond disturbing. Check out this portion of what should be his rap sheet:
*Mustapha misrepresented his leadership role in the Islamic Association for Palestine, Hamas' U.S. propaganda arm, while testifying under oath during a 2004 deposition, according to court records and IAP documents.

*Mustapha raised more than $100,000 for CAIR and another group closely tied to the radical Muslim Brotherhood – the Muslim American Society (MAS) – as recently as August 2010.

*He also appeared at an April 2010 CAIR fundraiser and raised more than $240,000.

*As a member of the band al-Sakhra, Mustapha performed at fundraisers for the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development, which the federal government shut down in 2001 because of its ties to Hamas. In addition, Mustapha spent at least four years as a paid HLF fundraiser and was named as an unindicted conspirator in the 2008 HLF. It ended with the conviction of five foundation officials on charges they funneled millions of dollars to Hamas. Mustapha was shown in a video exhibit in the 2008 HLF trial singing "O Mother, Hamas for jihad," and calling for resisting Israel with a "machine gun and a rifle."

*He hosted a fundraiser in July 2009 for Viva Palestina, a British charity that raises money for the Hamas-run government in Gaza. Mustapha appeared at the Mosque Foundation with George Galloway, the former British Member of Parliament and Viva Palestina leader.
I wrote about the conference at which Clapper and Mueller were questioned about Mustapha HERE but after discovering how extensive Mustapha's nefarious past is, take another look at how both men addressed the questions about being so cozy with him despite that past.

Giving these guys the benefit of the doubt would almost necessarily require an acceptance of that old saying about keeping your enemy closer than your friends. In light of the reports coming out about Able Danger and the CIA knowing about Mohammed Atta a year before 9/11, I'm not a subscriber to that philosophy at this point.

Speaking of Able Danger, Verum Serum had a nice piece on it as well.

This is extremely significant. It's been nearly a full year since the countless emails were leaked from the Climate Research Unit (CRU) at East Anglia University in Great Britain. Since then, there have been random and sporadic events that only serve to discredit Al Gore's cause. We have another one and it is significant. The American Physical Society (APS) is a group of highly respected scientists whose support has been critical to the man-made Climate change hucksters. In the days after Climategate, a few APS scientists authored a fiery letter to other members of the group, charging that the work on global warming they had done was based on corrupted science.

One of the scientists who signed that letter was Hal Lewis, emeritus Professor of Physics, University of California, Santa Barbara. One year later, Lewis has submitted his resignation from APS with a letter even more highly charged. On October 6, 2010 here is part of what Lewis wrote to Curtis G. Callan, Jr., Princeton University, President of the American Physical Society:
Dear Curt:

When I first joined the American Physical Society sixty-seven years ago it was much smaller, much gentler, and as yet uncorrupted by the money flood (a threat against which Dwight Eisenhower warned a half-century ago).

Indeed, the choice of physics as a profession was then a guarantor of a life of poverty and abstinence—it was World War II that changed all that. The prospect of worldly gain drove few physicists. As recently as thirty-five years ago, when I chaired the first APS study of a contentious social/scientific issue, The Reactor Safety Study, though there were zealots aplenty on the outside there was no hint of inordinate pressure on us as physicists. We were therefore able to produce what I believe was and is an honest appraisal of the situation at that time. We were further enabled by the presence of an oversight committee consisting of Pief Panofsky, Vicki Weisskopf, and Hans Bethe, all towering physicists beyond reproach. I was proud of what we did in a charged atmosphere. In the end the oversight committee, in its report to the APS President, noted the complete independence in which we did the job, and predicted that the report would be attacked from both sides. What greater tribute could there be?

How different it is now. The giants no longer walk the earth, and the money flood has become the raison d’ĂȘtre of much physics research, the vital sustenance of much more, and it provides the support for untold numbers of professional jobs. For reasons that will soon become clear my former pride at being an APS Fellow all these years has been turned into shame, and I am forced, with no pleasure at all, to offer you my resignation from the Society.

It is of course, the global warming scam, with the (literally) trillions of dollars driving it, that has corrupted so many scientists, and has carried APS before it like a rogue wave. It is the greatest and most successful pseudoscientific fraud I have seen in my long life as a physicist. Anyone who has the faintest doubt that this is so should force himself to read the ClimateGate documents, which lay it bare. (Montford’s book organizes the facts very well.) I don’t believe that any real physicist, nay scientist, can read that stuff without revulsion. I would almost make that revulsion a definition of the word scientist....
In short, he resigned because he couldn't stomach the fact that science had been corrupted by money. CLICK HERE to read the entire letter; it's definitely worth it.

This is not only incredibly surreal but it demonstrates exactly how immature this president is. Since being elected nearly two years ago, Obama has been able to ram practically all of his policies through congress. Instead of accepting responsibility for the Obama economy, he told a crowd in Philadelphia how 'Republicans messed up so bad' that he still hasn't been able to turn things around. Can you believe this guy?

As for his emotional immaturity, it's largely attributed to his upbringing. Behold yet another reason why it is so important for a presidential candidate to be vetted. This one was not.
