Look for the controversial Ground Zero mosque to be back in the news soon with this news. Just when you thought those behind the construction of the mosque had used up their entire quota of gall, they turned on their reserve tank. As a consequence of 9/11, federal grant money was made available for the redevelopment of lower Manhattan. Now it has been learned that the Cordoba Initiative actually applied for $5 million of that grant money just last month.

Via the Daily Beast:
The audacious move stands to reignite the embers of a divisive debate that dominated headlines surrounding the ninth anniversary of the attacks this fall, say people vested in the issue.

The application was submitted under a “community and cultural enhancement” grant program administered by the Lower Manhattan Redevelopment Corporation (LMDC), which oversaw the $20 billion in federal aid allocated in the wake of 9/11 and is currently doling out millions in remaining taxpayer funds for community development. The redevelopment board declined to comment on the application (as did officials from Park51), citing the continuing and confidential process of determining the grant winners.

While news of the application has not previously been made public, developer Sharif El-Gamal outlined it in closed-door meetings, according to two individuals he spoke with directly. The thirtysomething, Brooklyn-born El-Gamal is motivated more by real estate ambition—one of these sources describes him as aspiring to be the next Donald Trump—than Islamic theology or ideology.
That last sentence is a joke. El-Gamal is more than just a little on-board with the furtherance of Islam in America. More on why HERE, HERE, and HERE.


This is truly one minute plus of sheer awesomeness. Using his cellphone, would-be airline passenger John Tyner recorded his encounter with a TSA agent and is being quoted by enough people to have sufficient material for a song compilation. You can watch an listen below but I think Charles Krauthammer's contribution to this song may be the best one. Besides, he just may be right when he said that 'don't touch my junk' is the new 'don't tread on me.'

Enjoy via Daily Caller:

Here's the inspiration for the song.


The president and CEO of OSI Systems is a man named Deepak Chopra and he accompanied Barack Obama on his recent trip to India. Chopra's company also owns the company known as Rapiscan Systems. Rapiscan is the manufacturer of all those body scanners that are being installed in airports and causing such a ruckus with travelers. We recently learned that George Soros and Michael Chertoff both had a stake in Rapiscan's success.

Not THIS Deepak Chopra. Via Public Intelligence:
HAWTHORNE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)– OSI Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: OSIS), a vertically-integrated provider of specialized electronic products for critical applications in the Security and Healthcare industries, today announced that Deepak Chopra, Chairman and CEO, was selected to accompany US President, Barack Obama, to Mumbai and attended the US India Business Entrepreneurship meeting, which was held by the US India Business Council (US IBC). The goal of the meeting was to promote further trade between US and India.

Deepak Chopra, OSI Systems President and Chief Executive Officer, stated, “I am honored to be selected to play a role in this very important cause. Currently the trade between US and India is only one tenth of the amount of trade between US and China. There is substantial opportunity to improve the trade relations with India for mutual economic gain.”
Go HERE for more on Chertoff's role in the proliferation of the body scanners.

The Washington Examiner has more on George Soros' investment in Rapiscan. As Rush Limbaugh pointed out yesterday, the likely thinking of the body scanner proponents was that people would prefer to be subjected to them instead of the increasingly intrusive pat-downs. However, that doesn't seem to be happening and is causing quite the headache for the Obama administration.
