It’s a sad day in American history when a one-time conservative/libertarian stalwart has fallen more out of touch with America’s needs for national security then our current socialist presidential regime, said Young Americans For Freedom national director Jordan Marks.
The dispute between Paul and the the group seems to stem from Paul’s anti-war activities and the prominence of his supporters at conservative events like CPAC.
“Rep. Paul is clearly off his meds and must be purged from public office. YAF is starting the process by removing him from our national advisory board. Good riddance and he won’t be missed,” added Marks. via americanthinker.com
listen to this Paulbot go at anyone who criticizes his guru. btw… there were WMDS in Iraq… saying that there weren’t won’t change the truth. Or was Saddam not a CIA operative? yeeehah the truth comes out. It is a no brainer, but the segment bite of no WMDs registers with the sheep. Even Noam Chomsky said there were WMDs because we gave it to them.
blaming America – and Israel – for most of the evils in the world. It didn’t fly in 2008 and it will be even less popular in 2012 if Ron Paul were to embarrass himself and run for president again.
The modern debate over government is based on offering Americans a choice between two minority monopolies of power. Government controlled corporations or corporate controlled government. Two extremes, both of which monopolize power in the hands of a small number of powerful and influential people. And deprive ordinary citizens of their rights. Because a tyranny of the minority is still a tyranny– regardless of what its guise is. And either corporate controlled government or government controlled corporations mean a totalitarian state serving the interests of a small group. The only debate is over which small group will benefit the most from the oppression of the majority.
The debate between government controlled corporations and corporate controlled government is mostly irrelevant. Because we have both.
…and Here is Noam Chomsky on WMDs. I know he is a liar, but even he does not agree with the idea that there were no WMDs
Chomsky: “This is even sometimes discussed. You can find it in the strategic analysis literature. Take, say, the invasion of Iraq again. We’re told that they didn’t find weapons of mass destruction. Well, that’s not exactly correct. They did find weapons of mass destruction, namely, the ones that had been sent to Saddam by the United States, Britain, and others through the 1980s. A lot of them were still there. They were under control of U.N. inspectors and were being dismantled. But many were still there. When the U.S. invaded, the inspectors were kicked out, and Rumsfeld and Cheney didn’t tell their troops to guard the sites. So the sites were left unguarded, and they were systematically looted. The U.N. inspectors did continue their work by satellite and they identified over 100 sites that were systematically looted, like, not somebody going in and stealing something, but carefully, systematically looted.” via Chomsky info
Jack Abramoff and Grover Norquist: 1/2 of the Islamo-Sleazebag-a-Palooza Goes to Prison. The Other Half is in the Tea Party.
I’m talking about Grover Norquist, whose Americans for Tax Reform is a major sponsor of the Tea Party launch event, Tea Party Patriots’ manifesto, at today’s start of CPAC (the Conservative Political Action Conference). Norquist bragged to Politico that he is behind the tea party activists’ presence at CPAC. That’s braggadocio the tea party people would run away from if they truly abhor anti-Semitism, anti-Israel activism, and Muslim extremism. But they aren’t running the other way. They are embracing Norquist. And Norquist isn’t just embraced by Tea Partiers in Washington or in town for CPAC, but by key Tea Party leaders, organizers, and activists in every state, whom he’s traveled to meet and who also embrace him and ask him for guidance.
Many in the know refer to his organization as “Arabs for Tax Reform,” for good reason. Even Norquist’s ATR business cards are bilingual, with everything in Arabic on the flip side (or perhaps the main, with English on the flip side).
Norquist, a founder and board member of the Islamic Institute (which operated out of his offices), was on the take from Gulf state emirates and laundered money for his buddy Jack Abramoff. At Islamic Institute (which operated out of Abramoff’s Americans for Tax Reform offices), he employed Khalid Saffuri, an admitted funder of “the martyrs”–he adopted HAMAS homicide bombers’ families and funded them. And Norquist and Islamic Institute accepted cash from several “charities” which laundered money for the Saudi government to Al-Qaeda. Norquist got a top Bush White House job for Suhail Khan, whose father, Mahboob Khan, twice brought Al-Qaeda biggie Ayman Al-Zawahiri into the country to raise money for Al-Qaeda at the elder Khan’s mosque. The younger Khan proceeded to invite extremist Muslim clerics, such as one who described Jews as a “dirty little tribe,” to hang out with President Bush.
And then there is my own experience with the Islamic McCarthyism that is the Norquist brand:
Norquist got the spineless Heritage Foundation (and its Islamic lobbyist chief, Edwin Feulner, whom he took on a trip to meet the emir of Qatar) and the Town Hall site, which Heritage then owned, to remove my columns, because he was upset that I wrote about Republican Congressman Darrell Issa’s embrace of Hezbollah, terrorist state Syria, and anti-profiling laws for Arabs and Muslims. Norquist, a National Rifle Association board member, who got the NRA to revoke a written invitation to me to speak at its annual national convention because he was upset that I wrote about his close friend, Sami Al-Arian’s founding, involvement in, and terrorist fundraising for Islamic Jihad (a bombing he funded murdered New Jersey college student, Alisa Flatow, a friend of my sister’s). The NRA revoked the dis-invitation only when I was about to discuss their behavior on the Howard Stern syndicated radio show.
Yes, this is the man the conservative movement embraces, and whom Karl Rove shielded from Justice Department prosecution, even though he laundered money for Jack Abramoff through Americans for Tax Reform and defrauded U.S. taxpayers who gave up the taxes on the millions Norquist laundered through his tax-deductible organization for Indian Tribes Abramoff represented and who wanted to protect their gambling fiefdom. There is no difference between ACORN’s tax fraud and misuse of its tax deductible status and that of Norquist and his ATR. Yet conservatives continue to embrace him, and Norquist brags to Politico about how he got away with it:
Norquist said he’s worked to bring on board tea party activists and hasn’t faced any backlash from those who see him as part of the establishment or who hold against him his involvement in the Jack Abramoff scandal.
Yup, Grover Norquist one of the not-so-know, same-old-establishment faces of the Tea Party movement.
yes this is old news, but before any Conservative is supported we need to know what his connections were to Norquist.
In 1995, investigators raid two groups in Tampa, Florida, associated with Sami al-Arian, a university professor who some claim has been a supporter of terrorist groups. These raids alert investigators to a group of Muslim charities in Herndon, Virginia, known as the SAAR network (see July 29, 1983). An investigation into that network’s alleged terrorism financing begins. In 1998, National Security Council aides in the Clinton White House push the FBI to intensify the SAAR investigation. However, the FBI declines, claiming that an aggressive probe would be seen as ethnic profiling. The SAAR network will not be raided until early 2002 (see March 20, 2002). [Washington Post, 10/7/2002] Al-Arian will not be arrested until 2003, largely on the basis of activities from 1995 and before. He will eventually be sentenced to almost five years in prison and will admit to aiding the Palestinian Islamic Jihad (see December 6, 2005), which the US has officially designated as a terrorist group.
Why did Paul, a former Libertarian candidate who sees dark conspiracies in the Federal Reserve and other places , beat GOP stars like Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich, Tim Pawlenty and even Sarah Palin?
Paul has called for an end to U.S. aid to Israel, slammed AIPAC “control” of U.S. policy and said Israeli policy on Gaza amounts to keeping Palestinians in a “concentration camp.” Paul has also opposed Iran sanctions, a top priority of most pro-Israel groups.
Results of this year’s poll were announced just as the crowd prepared for the conference’s keynote speaker, Fox News host Glenn Beck.
consider this: if Ron Paul were as anti-Islam as he is anti-Israel, he would not have been in CPAC, and his perspective would not have
been represented. Instead of coming together on our basic core values and
circling the wagons on the fundamentals — national security, small government,
low taxes, and the freedom of speech — the floundering, fleshy, unfocused CPAC
leadership had a circus of the fringe.
There’s nothing conservative about soft-pedaling jihad. This
was CPAC? Or was it the Islamist repackaging of the conservative movement?
Every year CPAC gets progressively worse. Silly, even. Is it
hard to believe that this year’s CPAC was co-opted by Paulian bots?
CPAC 2010 was like CPAC 2009 in that it had nothing
addressing the war we are engaged in and the enemy threat doctrine. That again
was why I held my event there. Stealth jihadist Grover Norquist and his soldier of Allah Suhail Khan seem to be in charge at CPAC — no CPAC event goes on that doesn’t reflect their perspective. Norquist and Khan are serving the
purposes of the Muslim Brotherhood, the international Islamic organization that
has infiltrated the U.S. government and media to such an extent (as Stephen
Coughlin explained at our CPAC event) that it controls the information and
dissemination of everything you see, hear, and read on Islam — unless you do
your own research, your own study, and frequent blogs like mine and Robert Spencer’s.
