Muslim Brotherhood Declares Victory in Tunisia

The Muslim Brotherhood continues to rack up one victory after another thanks in large part to the policies of the Barack Obama administration. Gadhafi hadn't even reached freezer temperature when the Islamists in Tunisia began unmasking themselves as the victors in the elections there. Make no mistake, the Enahda Party is nothing more than an extension of the Muslim Brotherhood, which is an identifier that is increasingly becoming more well known to westerners with each country that falls under its control. In fact, the leader of Enahda has an interesting history with the leading Muslim Brotherhood cleric, Youssef Qaradawi.

Rachid Ghannouchi (many spelling variations) is the leader of the Tunisian Islamist movement known as Nahada (aka Ennahda, Al Nahda) and can best be described as an independent Islamist power center who is tied to the global Muslim Brotherhood through his membership in the European Council for Fatwa and Research (ECFR) and his important position in the International Union of Muslim Scholars (IUMS), both organizations led by Global Muslim Brotherhood Youssef Qaradawi. An Egyptian news report has identified Ghannouchi as a leader of the Muslim Brotherhood “abroad.” Ghannouchi is also one of the founding members of the World Assembly of Muslim Youth (WAMY), a Saudi organization closely linked to the Muslim Brotherhood and dedicated to the propagation of “Wahabist” Islam throughout the world. Ghannouchi is known for his thinking on the issue of Islam and citizenship rights. Earlier posts reported on the return of Mr. Ghannouchi to Tunisia following his long exile in the UK.
Meanwhile, Reuters is referring to Ghannouchi's Party as 'moderate' while championing its electoral success:
Moderate Islamists claimed victory on Monday in Tunisia's first democratic election, sending a message to other states in the region that long-sidelined Islamists are challenging for power after the "Arab Spring."

Official results have not been announced, but the Ennahda party said its workers had tallied the results posted at polling stations after Sunday's vote, the first since the uprisings which began in Tunisia and spread through the region.

"The first confirmed results show that Ennahda has obtained first place," campaign manager Abdelhamid Jlazzi said outside party headquarters in the center of the Tunisian capital.

As he spoke, a crowd of more than 300 in the street shouted "Allahu Akbar!" or "God is great!" Other people started singing the Tunisian national anthem.
Amazingly, the United States continues to help clear the Middle Eastern path for the Muslim Brotherhood's rise while the country most interested in the Brotherhood's success - Turkey - just sits back and watches the United States deplete its resources. It strains every ounce of credulity to believe that the Obama administration does not know what it's doing.

Timothy McVeigh and the Occupy Wall Street Protests

As the American Nazi Party officially endorse the Occupy Wall Street protests while sharing the same target - 'Jewish Bankers' - I began thinking about how much Timothy McVeigh would have in common with the protesters. The more I explored the possibility, the more apparent it became to me that the executed Oklahoma City bomber had far more in common with what OWS is all about than with any right wing movement in general, or the Tea Party in particular. The next time someone attempts to paint McVeigh as a right wing extremist, consider that he was anything but.

My latest at Big Government:
Timothy McVeigh Smiling up at #OccupyWallSt Protesters
by Ben Barrack

As the Occupy Wall Street protesters started to gather in various cities across the country, it was soon learned that the American Nazi Party endorsed the movement and called for its members to “…JOIN IN the attack on Judeo-Capitalism.” Even the left wing media is conceding that the OWS crowd is a manifestation of left wing anger intended to counter the Tea Party. Timothy McVeigh was a neo-Nazi. His favorite book was a novel entitled The Turner Diaries, which was written by William L. Pierce, an official with the American Nazi Party; even the far left group Southern Poverty Law Center acknowledges this. We are left to conclude that since the American Nazi Party endorses the OWS protests, so would Mr. McVeigh.

So why would the Nazi Party get behind a left wing movement if the Tea Party is the group that is supposed to be filled with racists and Nazis? Nancy Pelosi said the swastika was the symbol of the Tea Party. Yet, the group whose logo is the swastika has endorsed OWS. Instances of Nazi references at Tea Parties have often involved left wing hijinks. Posters of Obama with a Hitler mustache that appeared at some Tea Party rallies were actually the brainchild of the far left’s LaRouche PAC.

Let’s also not forget the short-lived ‘Crash the Tea Party’ movement that called for left wing activists to infiltrate Tea Parties and behave in ways that would help portray the group as racist. True Tea Party conservatives actively policed themselves when aptly named infiltrators attempted to tar the movement. One of the more blatant examples came courtesy of the Sharp Elbows website. When a man sporting Nazi garb milled around within the group, he was confronted and weeded out. Recently, while defending the OWS protesters, Media Matters’ Eric Boehlert posted a photo of two youths, one holding a sign with a swastika on it that said “No Repeats” and the other with a photo portraying Barack Obama in a Mao suit, at what appeared to be a Tea Party rally. Such behavior is not advisable to be sure but in addition to the protesters in the example Boehlert provided being rather young, those signs were intended to convey a rejection of, not support for, Nazism.

There are other examples of white supremacists infiltrating Tea Parties but such instances are typically strategic attempts at piggy-backing and not the result of a common cause. Consider the case of the Council of Conservative Citizens (CofCC), a neo-Nazi group that uses deceptive means and tactics to infiltrate Tea Parties. In fact, one of Arizona’s Neo-Nazi leaders – JT Ready – deceptively donned partriotic American garb and posed for a photo with Arizona State Senator Russel Pearce, who was responsible for crafting his state’s tough immigration law, SB 1070. Had Pearce known Ready was a Neo-Nazi, he most assuredly would not have granted him a photo-op.

The American Nazi Party is not using deceptive means to graft itself into the Occupy Wall Street protests. Increasingly, it doesn’t seem necessary as a large number of OWS protesters are seen referring to their targets as Jewish Bankers.

That is exactly what the Nazi Party is claiming. This is a common denominator between the two groups. At practically every turn, Tea Party conservatives went out of their way to denounce racist entities and individuals who attempted to join their ranks. Conversely, when it comes to the target of generic OWS protesters and the American Nazi Party, the idea of denunciation comes precariously close to hypocrisy. In any case, Tea Partiers made quick work of Nazi infiltrators. Thus far, OWS doesn’t seem all that interested in doing the same. After all, entities with a common cause make interesting allies who are all too often willing to overlook the political liabilities presented by the other.

Let’s consider the target of the OWS protesters. The object of the group’s collective ire is Wall Street in general and bankers in particular. They are demanding that rich bankers be made to give up their wealth so that it can be re-distributed. In essence, the protesters are calling for institutionalized bank robbery. Go figure, Timothy McVeigh was also a bank robber, as were several of his colleagues.

Moreover, the left always defaults to the Timothy-McVeigh-was-a-Christian argument every time the subject of Islamic terror comes up. In fact, the only thing more maddening than that meme is when it goes unchallenged by conservatives who never seem to bring up the fact that McVeigh was agnostic. Oh, that reminds me. The agnostic movement seems to be largely supportive of the OWS protests as well. A perusal of the Agnositics International forum should sufficiently demonstrate that. Also, take note that a guitarist for the band Agnostic Front is in support of the OWS protests too.

Everyone acknowledges that McVeigh believed in solving his problems with violence. The crime that led to his execution proves that but what about the OWS crowd? Democratic pollster Douglas Schoen discovered that nearly one-third of the OWS protesters are in support of violence to further the group’s agenda; 98% support civil disobedience. Something tells me Timothy McVeigh would fit right in with this bunch.

At the very least, the left should think twice before painting Timothy McVeigh as a poster child for the right wing extremist movement. Such a charge, now more than ever, reeks of projection.

Chilling Video: Steve Wynn gives Cavuto look behind Curtain of 'Politics in America'

Look for this to get significant play over the next couple of days. It's not often (perhaps never) that a wealthy businessman is this frank about his dealings with national politicians but Las Vegas hotel magnate, Steve Wynn does just that and it is more than just a little chilling. The fact that Wynn is this frank is trumped only by his charges which, in turn, are made all the more disturbing by the fact that he's so forthright about delivering them.

Here, Wynn tells what looks like an increasingly shell-shocked Neil Cavuto that politicians know they're doing wrong but do it anyway. He makes reference to Harry Reid hanging up on him and then his Congresswoman telling him during the Obamacare debate that while she didn't agree with the legislation, she voted for it for fear of being 'punished' by Nancy Pelosi. Watch the entire 1:30 of video. If you're not awake before watching this, you should be afterward.

A relevant follow-up clip comes from none other than Obama himself, who said these words while in Las Vegas. In light of what you heard Wynn say about Pelosi's tactics, consider the implications of Obama's words here when he says he is going to act 'with or without Congress.' It is long past time for the legislative branch to stand up for itself against this president.
