Timmerman: Ron Paul Loved by Iranian Regime

This is an extremely disturbing development in light of the recent federal court ruling in the southern district of New York that found Iran and Hezbollah to be behind 9/11. Kenneth Timmerman, who was an expert witness in Havlish et al. v. Iran et al., makes a strong case that Iran is supporting Ron Paul for president.

Via AIM:
The Iranian regime’s English language propaganda channel, PressTV, has discovered a new American idol: presidential contender Rep. Ron Paul.

PressTV has stepped up its coverage of Paul’s campaign to win the Republican presidential nomination in recent weeks, featuring his anti-Israel rants, his claim that sanctions against Iran are “acts of war,” his approval of Iran’s nuclear ambitions, and much more.

The Iranian government channel portrays Ron Paul as an American hero, and brings on conspiracy theorists masquerading as political “analysts” to laud him for  “challenging the American establishment” and the “corporate neo-conservative Zionist consensus,” that cabal of Jews, banksters, and Reagan Democrats who in Tehran’s eyes (and in the eyes of these Ron Paul supporters) run the world.

It’s a script taken almost word-for-word from the infamous anti-Semitic forgery, The Protocols of the Elders of Zion.
Press TV, which is a media arm of the Iranian regime, is singing Ron Paul's praises in ways not all that dissimilar from how Debbie Wasserman-Schultz praises Obama. Here are some Ron Paul sound clips featured by Press TV via Timmerman's piece:
“Just think of how many nuclear weapons surround Iran. The Chinese are there, the Indians are there, the Pakistanis are there, the Israelis are there, the United States is there. All these countries—China has nuclear weapons! Wouldn’t it be natural that they might want a weapon? Internationally, they’d be given more respect… They have no evidence that they are working on a weapon. “Paul blasts US policy on Iran, Aug. 12, 2011.

“I think we’re looking for trouble because we put these horrendous sanctions on Iran… Sanctions against Iran are definite steps toward a US attack.” “Iran sanctions ‘acts of war’: Ron Paul,” Dec. 31, 2011; “Ron Paul raps US hostility toward Iran,” Jan. 7, 2012.

“Iran’s leader, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, had never mentioned any intention of wiping Israel off the map.” Quick Facts: Ron Paul on US Foreign Policy, Dec. 24, 2011.

“Iran is not a physical threat to us. They do not have capabilities. The stories you might hear about them being on the verge of a nuclear weapon is not true by our CIA and by the United Nations. They are not on the verge of it.” Quick Facts: Ron Paul on US Foreign Policy, Dec. 24, 2011.

“Who are they [Iran] going to bomb? If they had one or two bombs, they are going to bomb Israel? Israel has 300 of them! And our submarines all around there passing and everything else.” Quick Facts: Ron Paul on US Foreign Policy, Dec. 24, 2011.

“I think they’re acting in self-defense… That is a gross distortion of this debate that they’re on the verge of a nuclear weapon.” Ron Paul defends his anti-war policies, Dec. 16, 2011

“At least our leaders and Reagan talked to the Soviets. What is so terribly bad about this? Countries you put sanctions on, you are more likely to fight them. I say a policy of peace is free trade, stay out of their internal business. Do not get involved in these wars and bring our troops home.” Ron Paul blasts US policy on Iran, Aug. 12, 2011
Then, of course, there is the fact that Paul touts Robert Pape's foreign policy views; Pape reportedly has ties to CAIR. It would seem that we might be learning a little bit more about why Paul always seems to defend the Islamists.

Appeals Court Upholds Texas Ultrasound Law

In a classic example of how left-wing, activist judges attempt to legislate from the bench, federal district Judge Sam Sparks issued an injunction on Texas' Sonogram Law just two days before it was supposed to take effect. The law requires abortuaries to give pregnant women the option of viewing an ultrasound before going through with the abortion.

As if that wasn't absurd enough, the Texas state law was being challenged by an entity from another state - New York. That state's Center for Reproductive Rights (CRR) sought the injunction that Sparks ultimately granted.

Now, thanks to a federal appeals court, Judge Sparks has essentially been told to go pound sand.

Via LifeNews:
Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott, who is pro-life, quickly filed an appeal on the same day that the lower court released the injunction with the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans.

Last Tuesday, a federal three-judge panel heard arguments to determine whether to lift the injunction. The panel was critical of the grounds for the injunction and Jonathan Mitchell, Solicitor General, argued for the law before the panel.  Mitchell explained that the level of scrutiny and the arguments used to rule the law as unconstitutional — and thus block the law from going into effect — were misapplied and needed to be overturned.

Chief Judge Edith Jones, of the three-judge panel, asked pro-abortion attorneys how medical sonogram imaging, and a factual description of that image could be viewed as radical or against the health of women.

Today, the court ruled the state can enforce the law and said Judge Sparks was wrong to rule that abortion practitioners would likely win their case in court.
Why would a federal judge in Texas rule against a law passed by his state because of objections from an entity in another state that has NO business telling Texas how to run its state?

When Newt talks about holding Judges accountable, Sam Sparks is a perfect example.

The degree to which Sparks and CRR were willing to go reveals something else too. Pro-abortionists know the law will lead to less abortions.

Sparks did with this bill what federal Judge Susan Bolton did to Arizona's immigration law (SB 1070), likely for the same reason. Fear that it would work and that the insane leftist agenda would take a hit.

CAIR Targets FBI for Arresting Tampa Jihadist

Yugoslavian born, would-be Islamic terrorist Sami Osmakac planned massive destruction in Tampa, FL. He apparently made it onto the FBI's radar when he told an unidentified person that he wanted to purchase an al-Qaeda flag. Subsequent requests made by Osmakac about wanting to carry out multiple terror attacks before killing himself led to an FBI sting operation that took him down before he could do any damage.

Apparently, the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) thinks he's just another innocent Muslim targeted by the FBI:

Via IPT:
Despite Osmakac's commitment to carry out multiple deadly attacks, CAIR officials went on the offensive against the FBI for capturing another "innocent" Muslim. Trying to create tension between Muslim Americans and law enforcement is part of CAIR's regular response to government counterterrorism investigations.

Executive Director of CAIR San Francisco Zahra Billoo was quick to paint the arrest as a scam, stating that she was "wondering how much of the thwarted terror plot in Florida was seeded by the FBI, [a]ppreciating that even the MSM mentioned the informants." Dawud Walid, Executive Director of CAIR-Michigan, released a tweet saying, "it is not the job of civil rights groups to be commending the FBI on their use of informants, given the FBI's history."

The Director of CAIR's Florida chapter, Hassan Shibley, gave a more lukewarm and confusing response to news of the arrest. Although he stated that Osmakac "was no friend or supporter of the Muslim community" and that the Muslim community had played a "vital role" in his arrest, he also expressed "concern about a perception of entrapment."

"The weapons and explosives were provided by the government. Was he just a troubled individual, or did he pose a real threat?" said Shibly to the press this morning. As the day progressed, he was quoted casting additional mistrust of the government's intentions. "I think the fear at the point is that he was just mentally disturbed...I think that community members hoped that by reporting him, he could get the proper assistance," Shibly explained to MyFoxTampaBay.

The details of the case make plain the intentions of the plotter.
Notice that Shibley credited the Muslim community for helping the FBI to arrest Osmakac. A little later in Emerson's article, we find that there were Muslims who knew of Osmakac's intentions and did nothing.
He also talked of taking down Tampa Bay area bridges to "crush the whole economy" in the region and to create food crisis, but concluded it need more people. Osmakac also lamented that he was unable to inspire other local Islamists to enter the plot with him, indicating that other local Muslims knew of his plot and had not reported him.
The FBI should identify all of the individuals Osmakac attempted to recruit and question them. If there are applicable charges, they should be filed.

After all, Islamic terrorism is a crime, not an act of war.
