Report: Hamas Loving Pig Chris Christie Appoints Four Violent Jihadis to NJ’s Muslim “Outreach” Program

By Gary P Jackson

I’ve talked about New Jersey Governor Chris Christie’s dirty ties to radical Islam, including the fact that as a United States Attorney, Christie intervened on the behalf of a convicted Hamas terrorist, stopping his deportation.

Now it seems Christie has decided he needs further “outreach to America’s sworn enemies, and has picked some real winners to represent New Jersy. From the Paramus Post:

A RadicalIslam.org investigation has discovered that at least four Islamists sit on New Jersey Governor Chris Christie’s Muslim outreach committee, which was formed after Attorney General Jeffrey Chiesa concluded in May that NYPD intelligence-gathering operations in New Jersey did not break any laws.

All of the information about the Islamist backgrounds of these four committee members is publicly available, yet the Christie Administration picked them to serve as liaisons to the Muslim community of the state. As a result, they are having private meetings with N.J.’s top security officials. This is just the latest example of Christie’s embrace of Islamists that should be shunned, not exalted.

The discovery that the Islamists were on the committee was made when RadicalIslam.org obtained a previously unreleased list of committee members present at a September 5, 2012 meeting at the Leroy Smith Building in Newark.

The four committee members of concern are:

• Imam Mohammad Qatanani, whose deportation is sought by the Department of Homeland Security for not disclosing on his green card application that he was arrested and convicted by Israel in 1993 for his involvement with Hamas;

• Ahmed Shedeed, a fervent supporter of the Muslim Brotherhood and President of the Islamic Center of Jersey City, a mosque with a history of Islamist leadership. Its website currently contains disturbing statements about jihad, the West, wife beating and polygamy;

• Mohammed Younes, the President of the American Muslim Union, a group with Islamist leadership and close ties to Qatanani’s mosque, which was founded by a Hamas fundraiser; and

• Imam Abdul Basit
of the New Brunswick Islamic Center, a mosque founded by a radical cleric. In July, it held a Brotherhood-linked seminar featuring multiple extremist speakers.

Addressing the committee were: Attorney General Chiesa, NJ State Police Superintendent Colonel Rick Fuentes and the Office of Homeland Security and Preparedness Director Edward Dickson. These addresses were followed by dialogue with committee members.

Other NJ officials that were present at the meeting were: First Assistant Attorney General Calcagni, Special Assistant Christopher Iu, Special Assistant Paul Salvatoriello, State Police Major Gerald Lewis and Office of Homeland Security and Preparedness Community Affairs Chief John Paige.

Profiles of the Four Islamist Committee Members

Imam Mohammad Qatanani

The most notorious of the committee members is Mohammad Qatanani. He was arrested in Israel in 1993 because of his links to Hamas, including the fact that his brother-in-law was a Hamas official in the West Bank. Qatanani told the Israelis that he had been a member of the Jordanian Muslim Brotherhood but left in 1991 because he had limited time for this project. The Israeli government says he admitted to being a Hamas member and was convicted, but he was released as part of a plea bargain. The Department of Homeland Security is seeking his deportation for failing to disclose this on his green card application.

In 1994, Qatanani moved to NJ to lead the Islamic Center of Passaic County in Paterson, a mosque founded in 1989 by Hamas fundraiser Mohammed El-Mezain. In November 1994, El-Mezain stated that ICPC was collecting money for Hamas, according to an FBI report. The two men jointly led the ICPC and lived together as El-Mezain raised money for terrorism until he stepped down in 1999. In July 2006, the Department of Homeland Security began deportation proceedings against Qatanani.

The DHS says Qatanani “engaged in terrorist activity” and is guilty of “material misrepresentation” and “engaging in unauthorized employment … by allowing an out-of-status alien to reside with him.” It also describes a “highly dubious” transfer of thousands of dollars to the West Bank.

It is certainly suspicious when a person who has been convicted of being a member of, and providing services, to Hamas, who has personal ties to a Hamas militant leader, and a Hamas fundraiser also sends undisclosed cash to the West Bank,” the 2008 DHS court filing states.

Qatanani is the only Hamas supporter identified by name in a July 2008 NJ Office of Homeland Security and Preparedness intelligence report about the Hamas network in the state. His preaching between 2007 and 2009 reflected his radical views, as shown in translations made by the Investigative Project on Terrorism. For example, he prayed for the defeat of “occupation and oppression” in Iraq, Palestine and Chechnya in 2007. The enemies of Islam are the U.S., Israel and Russia in this context.

He also preached that Jews and Christians “will be swiftly punished by Allah” and that Muslims should not speak poorly of Sheikh Yousef al-Qaradawi, a top Muslim Brotherhood cleric that endorses suicide bombings and Hamas. He also defended donations to the families of suicide bombers. Just this September, Qatanani said the U.S. should outlaw criticism of Islam.

Under Qatanani’s leadership, the ICPC has held various Islamist speakers, such as Hamas-supporter Imam Reda Shata, Hamas-linked activist Abdelhaleem Ashqar (who is now in prison for refusing to testify about the Hamas network in the U.S.) and Wagdy Ghoneim, who was voluntarily deported from the country in 2005 for his terror ties and now preaches extremism in Egypt.

The reason why convicted Hamas terrorist Qatanani hasn’t been deported, is because Chris Christie intervened on his behalf.

The other three profiled, including Imam Abdul Basit, a 9/11 Truther, are just as evil as Qatanani. Read more here.

Disturbing Gallup: Most Democrats Have a Positive View of Socialism, Big Government [and so do some Republicans!]

Communism has never come to power in a country that was not disrupted by war or corruption, or both.

~ John Fitzgerald Kennedy 35th President of the United States

I blame the feckless, spineless Republican Party 100% for the results of this latest polling from Gallup.

Communism and socialism are the greatest evils ever foisted on mankind. And yet, the GOP, which is supposed to be the “loyal opposition” to these evils, is afraid to talk about it! The Republican Party’s latest failed candidate for President, Mitt Romney, when asked, REFUSED to call Barack Obama a socialist. That’s right, Mitt Romney refused to call Barack Obama, who was raised from birth by hard-core, Anti-American COMMUNISTS a “socialist.” And the GOP is still trying to figure out why they lost the election!

Ronald Reagan, famously a democrat until the 1960s, railed against communism and socialism all of his life. Reagan understood the evils of communism and socialism. He saw them as barbaric ideologies that destroy humanity. Reagan saw his party, the democrat party, taken over by communists and socialists, and famously said “I didn’t leave the party, the party left me” [a sentiment many are feeling about today's Republican Party, BTW] But Reagan wasn’t the only well known democrat who hated communism and socialism, and the evils they represent. John F Kennedy constantly spoke of the evils of both, there is plenty of tape of Kennedy doing so.

My point?

Why doesn’t the GOP use this and other information to help educate the American people who have been dumbed-down by liberal run education, liberal run media, and liberal run entertainment?

If they were smart, Republicans could use nothing but democrats blasting socialism and the evil it represents, to defeat today’s socialist-communist controlled democrat party. Not just defeat them, but send the party and it’s failed ideology to the ash-heap of history, where it belongs. They don’t call the GOP the “Stupid Party” for nothing though.

We have a population that doesn’t even understand that the Nazis were SOCIALISTS or that Nazi was short for Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei in English: the National Socialist German Workers’ Party. Instead you have the Nazis described as “right wing” by the media and “historians” in an attempt to re-write history, a common communist/socialist tactic.

In his iconic 1964 speech: A Time for Choosing, Ronald Reagan suggested there was no such thing as right or left, politically, just an up …. or …. down. He was right, and there is nothing that drags humanity further down than communism and socialism…..

….and yet, the Republican Party, a group sensible Americans have always looked to for protection against such evils, remains clueless and unwilling to fight for America against these great evils.

I chose the Kennedy quote above for a reason. We are at war, for sure, but it’s the massive corruption, the crony capitalism, the payoffs to political allies, with tax payer dollars, that is the problem. Barack Obama may be the king of Chicago style, corrupt, crony politics, but make no mistake, there’s plenty of cronyism to go around in the Republican Party as well. It’s this massive corruption in both parties that has allowed the notion of communism and socialism to thrive in America.

We expect nothing but evil and corruption from modern day democrats, but many in the GOP would rather hang on to their piece of the pie than rock the boat. I’m not calling Mitt Romney corrupt, it seems that he’s a rather decent, if not spineless, fellow, but it’s telling that he couldn’t bring himself to use the rather mild [but just as evil] socialist moniker to describe Barack Obama, a hard core, raised from birth, Saul Alinsky COMMUNIST.

You cannot defeat evil with timidity.

Gallup’s latest polling is disturbing, to say the least. It shows that most democrats, not surprisingly, hate big business, capitalism, and embrace socialism. More disturbing is that nearly a quarter of self-described Republicans hold these same views. It would almost seem all of these Republicans are currently serving in Congress or in “leadership positions within the RNC, looking at the state of affairs.

PRINCETON, NJ — Exemplifying a major partisan divide in modern politics, Democrats react significantly more positively to the term “federal government” than they do to the term “capitalism,” while the opposite is true for Republicans. But both Democrats and Republicans are highly positive about the terms “small business,” “free enterprise,” and “entrepreneurs.”

Several very interesting results here. Republicans and democrats both see small business in a highly favorable light. In fact, at 95 and 94 percent, respectively, they are identical in their views. However, democrats are less favorable to free enterprise, 6 points less, and entrepreneurs, 7 points less, than Republicans.

Never mind that pretty much 100% of small business owners are entrepreneurs who rely on free enterprise to survive. And never mind that communism and socialism are the sworn enemies of small businesses, free enterprise, and entrepreneurs.

It would seem there is a disconnect somewhere!

It’s troubling to me that Republicans aren’t answering closer to 100% on all three of these. It’s also troubling that only 72% of Republicans view capitalism favorably, only 75% have a favorable view of big business, and a mind-blowing 23 PERCENT see socialism in a favorable light.

Again, the Republican Party is still trying figure out why, once again, they lost. Not only lost, but lost to the worst president in the 236 year history of our nation. I think we’ve, at least partly, stumbled on the answer.

The idea that any American would view socialism favorably is just hateful, but the results of this polling speak to the absolute failure of the GOP as a political party, let alone protector of Liberty and Freedom.

Gallup conducted a similar poll in 2010, and sadly, it’s only gotten worse:

The chart combines both parties together, but it simply doesn’t compute. While those surveyed feel even more positive towards free enterprise and entrepreneurs now than they did in 2010 [and even big business for that matter] there is a sharp rise in those who favor Big Federal Government and socialism. Both of which are the absolute enemies of small businesses, free enterprise, and entrepreneurs. And for that matter, big business too!

It’s obvious that while pining for more of it, and re-electing the most radical of socialist-communist radicals as President, most democrats and a disturbing number of Republicans, have absolutely no idea what socialism actually is.

At least that’s what I want to believe. The alternative, that the majority of those surveyed DO know and understand what socialism is, and want it anyway, is just too depressing to even contemplate.

The bottom line is 53% of democrats and 23% of Republicans have a favorable view of socialism. That’s 53 and 23 percent, respectively, too damned many!

Thank the spineless GOP for this. Someone should have been fighting the fight against this evil, and working night and day to educate the public. Far too many Republicans were more worried about holding on to their own little centers of power to care.

Video: Saul Alinsky’s Radical Anti-American Agenda is Barack Obama’s Radical Anti-American Agenda

“Lest we forget at least an over-the-shoulder acknowledgment to the very first radical: from all our legends, mythology, and history… the first radical known to man who rebelled against the establishment and did it so effectively that he at least won his own kingdom — Lucifer.

~ Saul Alinsky’s dedication to Satan in his book Rules for Radicals

By Gary P Jackson

A fantastic interview with David Webb and Anita Moncrief. They talk with Sean Hannity about Saul Alinsky and Barack Obama’s radical Anti-American communist agenda. Unspeakable evils set upon the American people for decades:

Radio talk show host David Webb, former ACORN official Anita Moncrief, and Sean Hannity discuss the connection between Saul Alinsky, ACORN, and Barack Obama.

I suggest readers who don’t know the extent of the evils Alinsky preached, or how ingrained those evils are in Obama, do their own research into both. Rarely does one find pure, unadulterated evil in the world, in these two, however, it’s all there.

Barack Obama taught the principles of Saul Alinsky to ACORN members in Chicago.

Thanks to our friends at SarahNET for the video.

Video: Peter Schweizer and Sean Hannity Discuss Obama’s “District of Corruption”

By Gary P Jackson

Over the holidays Sean Hannity ran a special on Victory Film’s new movie District of Corruption. Here Sean and Peter Schweizer talk about Obama’s vicious circle of crony capitalism. Corruption on a massive scale.

It’s not just Obama who is corrupt though. It’s every major politician in Washington. Though many are democrats, as they are the ones in power, there are Republicans involved as well.

If you haven’t read Peter’s book Throw Them All Out I highly recommend you do so. You can also check out the Government Accountability Institute here. Plenty of solid information on the who, what, when, and where of corruption in government.

I’m in for a New Third Party! To Heck with the Bushes’ GOP!

The GOP has failed.  Now what?

I have spent the last four days dealing with the Jeb Bush possible (probable) run for President 2016, and can’t help but feel exasperated and even depressed at the thought that we are being set up yet again to have our voices ignored.  My answer to that?  Start a new Third Party once and for all. Why not?

The consequences of doing nothing far outweigh the risk of making the effort to do something.  I KNOW the issue of money is of great concern, and that is outside the scope of my comprehension or pay grade.  Someone else can deal with that crucial issue.

IM A DREAMER!

And a problem-solver!  People feel disenfranchised and would love to see A NEW DAY and a NEW REVITALIZED PARTY! But we are not going to get it by trying to change the one we have.  It’s been proven over time. How many “Bush” presidencies do we need in one lifetime to show that this is all fixed and that there has never been room for a REAL PEOPLE’s candidate to take their place?

If 2012 was NOT a wake up call for the GOP, then it is deaf, blind and beyond dumb!! And if it is NOT a wake-up for us, then let me ask you this: If not us, who?  If not now, when? Bush INC is NOT going to relinquish their power to We-the-People, so what choice are we left with?  They are our problem if WE CHOOSE to let them be our problem.  We can choose for the GOP NOT TO BE our problem.  It is well within our power to do so.

The party’s message is tired, worn out and has been proven not to work.  It is not going to change any time soon as long as the pernicious leadership remains at the helm.  If we cannot change the party leadership, then we need to change OURSELVES and say and do what me mean.

We must be taken seriously with a platform of Reform, Revitalization of the economy as well as Restoration of Principles and Honor in Politics.  I have heard some say the party name should be The Conservative Party.  That sounds fine to me.   The name doesn’t really matter, it is the spirit of the party that does.

I would rather spend my time dreaming about this than trying to beg the leadership to listen.  I would rather follow a new, exciting, refreshing solution to a problem we know won’t change, rather than try to fix a failing GOP mentality.

If it generates fear, frustration and setbacks, so be it.  It’s still worth a shot.

The Republican Party’s Political and Policy Pyramid Scheme

by Whitney Pitcher

On Saturday, Tony Lee wrote a piece at Breitbart highlighting a recent speech by Pat Caddell where he discussed the reasons behind the Republican party’s defeat in the presidential election. Among the many things that Caddell noted is that the Romney campaign bowed to the “consultant-lobbyist-establishment” complex. However, this is not only the GOP’s political modus operandi, it is also their policy approach. This is why, although the Democrats may seem to resonate with voters more on messaging (Caddell also mentioned that voters didn’t think Governor Romney “cared about them”), the differences on policy between the two parties appears to be shrinking. Of particular note, Caddell said:

“Why are Republicans not the anti-establishment party?,” Caddell asked.

Caddell emphasized a “narrative is a story” that comes over a period of time and “not just a single message.”

He cited Ronald Reagan as someone who knew how to speak to Democrats and “ordinary and common” Americans and bring them over to his side because Reagan had been one of them and came from regular Americans and shared their experiences.

“That is a quality that has been missing a long time in a search for alternative candidate,” Caddell said, in reference to Reagan’s ability to resonate with blue collar Americans.

[...]

“As long as the establishment wants to preserve the establishment and their special deals, you will lose,” Caddell said.

Caddell, of course, is correct. The Republican party’s political approach has been inept attempt of self-preservation of the Establishment. They have been rudderless, inarticulate, and out-of-touch. I wrote last week about the need for the Republican party to do a better job at messaging and selling the winning product of conservatism, but the keys to victory of course, goes beyond this. One of the Republican party’s failures has been that they have seen politics along a single axis–right and left–between the seemingly arbitrary boundaries of political parties. In reality, politics and policy both have a vertical component to them—top to bottom–not in the terms of political party, but of political connection and personal benefit.

As Caddell notes, “why are Republicans not the anti-establishment party?”. They are not because they willfully ignore their own devotion to that “consultant-lobbyist-establishment” complex. Caddell also noted:

“No presidential campaign should be run by consultants,” Caddell said. “They should be run by people who are committed to the candidate and not into making big money.”

However, the past two losing presidential campaigns has been run by people who saw they could make money even in losing. Despite running a horrible campaign in 2008, Steve Schmidt saw he could continue to make money as a consultant and later as a political analyst at MSNBC as a “Republican” who trashes Republicans. The same can be said for Nicolle Wallace who works now at ABC and has attempted to capitalized on the notoriety of defeat by writing political fiction (which is the same genre as her political commentary). Through mid October, the Romney campaign had paid  $134+ million to political firms tied to his aides, including funding a  failed GOTV software. Karl Rove’s “Crossroads” group brought in and spent more than one hundred million dollars, only to have every candidate they supported lose. The GOP establishment has turned the Republican party into a pyramid scheme–where the few at the top (the Establishment and their consultants) eat well at the expense of their own base. The political game is not simply “right vs. left”; it is a game where the establishment does not care if they win politically (and the country wins on the basis of ideology and principle) so long as they win monetarily.  They eschew their own base and ignore the entire electorate to pad their bank accounts. They do not realize the need for “free market populism”, which is the solution for the “vertical” political and policy problems the GOP has.

Policy must be viewed on a vertical plane as well. Cronyism and corporatism must be rejected. Both of these “isms” allow for the politically connected at the top of food chain to benefit at the expense of the taxpayers at the bottom. This goes beyond the infamous problems with Solyndra and the other green energy companies tied to political donors. This also includes political institutions like the ExIm Bank, which provides taxpayer backed loan guarantees for American companies who sell their product overseas. The ExIm bank is supported by many Republicans, and its re-authorization was one of the few things that flew through the House and Senate with ease before being signed by President Obama. The Republican party is not distinguishing themselves from the Democrats when they choose to subsidize business on the backs of ordinary Americans.

Economic ideas must not be the “pro-government” ideas of the Democrats, nor the purported “pro-business” ideas of the Republicans. Rather, they must be “pro-market” ideas. Pro government ideas are founded in expanding government at the expense of the taxpayers’ money and liberty. Pro business ideas are founded in expanding government and some businesses at the expense of both other businesses and taxpayers. Both of the ideologies empower either government or specific businesses or industries, but “pro market” ideas empower the consumer as their purchasing power, not government taxation, bailouts, or subsidies, drives the market. Take, for example, ethanol subsidies. The EPA refused to ease ethanol mandates for fuel following a year of drought which negatively affected the corn harvest. What does this do? It makes fuel more expensive, and it has even made livestock farmers resort to feeding candy to their animals because increased corn prices have made livestock feed more expensive, which continues to occur in part because corn is being used for ethanol in fuel rather than in livestock feed. What does this have to do with the Republican party? Again, ethanol subsidies have bipartisan support, and the Republican party has not distinguished themselves from Democrats.

The concept of populism is not often seen as a conservative concept, and to some, free market populism may seem like an oxy moron. However, it is not the populism of liberals who pit Americans against each other through class warfare. It is a populism that desires to wage a war of sorts against the permanent political class (and the “consultant-lobbyist-establishment” complex) through a new brand of policy and politics. It is a brand guided not by the clinched fist of socialism, nor the hand-in-hand relationships of business and government, but of the invisible hand of the free market where the individual is empowered by lower taxes and smaller government.

In order to win elections and subsequently support for policy, the Republican party must realize that the battle lies in their message and the directionality of their focus, not in the hands of establishment consultants. If they ignore the vertical plane of their political and policy battles, they will lose not only their political base, but the electorate as a whole, and their pyramid scheme will come crashing down.

Vogue editor André Leon Talley: Allen West’s ‘Coon Minstrely Theatre’ an ‘embarrassment to blacks’ UPDATED

Comrade André Leon Talley, a vile, hate-filled democrat crapweasel

By Gary P Jackson

Remember now, it’s Republicans who are the racists ….

André Leon Talley is an editor at Vogue and misspells “embarrassment.” And yet Allen West is the embarrassment? I guess this moron spent all of his money renewing his KKK membership and can’t afford spell check.

From Twitchy:

Revolting.

André Leon Talley is the former American editor-at-large for Vogue magazine and a current contributing editor. When we last checked in with Talley, he was calling for progressives to boycott a Clint Eastwood film. Today he slithered further into the progressive gutter and joined the other foul-mouthed libs who attacked Rep. Allen West in racial terms when he conceded his House race.

More here.

I don’t know why we expect these evil bastard democrats to act any differently than they do. This is the party of the KKK, Jim Crow, voter intimidation, Margaret Sanger, and institutionalized segregation. I’m beyond fed up with these totalitarian Neo-Nazi weasels who viciously attack anyone who they disagree with, especially women and minorities.

We’ve all seen how democrats treat blacks who “wonder off the plantation” and have the audacity to think for themselves. How dare these black men get “uppity” and defy their masters!

Lt Col Allen West has more integrity and honor in his little finger than every democrat that ever breathed …. combined.

Liberalism is not compatible with civilized society, and it’s time were eradicate this cancer on all of humanity once and for all.

H/T: SarahNet.

****UPDATE****

It seems that besides being a jackass and a racist, André Leon Talley is also a coward. He has since deleted his hate-filled tweets. Of course, being a democrat, he ain’t all that intelligent. Embedded tweets are forever!

Jessie Jackson Jr Resigns From Congress, Jail Time Likely

By Gary P Jackson

Evidently there is no such thing in Illinois as an honest politician, or intelligent voter. Jessie Jackson Jr just won re-election in a landslide, and now has resigned, and could face jail time. Of course, we can count on Illinois to replace him with an equally corrupt Anti-American political hack, so this will change nothing but the name on the office door.

From Andrew Breitbart’s Big Government:

Jesse Jackson Jr. has resigned from Congress just weeks after winning reelection for a ninth term.

Jackson Jr. has been in treatment for bipolar disorder since June. The timing of his treatment coincides with an FBI investigation into misuse of campaign funds which also reportedly began in June.

The FBI has been looking into claims that Jackson Jr. allegedly used $100,000 in campaign funds to decorate his Washington D.C. home and also purchased a $40,000 Rolex watch for “a female friend.”

Days after his reelection, reports revealed that Jackson Jr. had hired attorney Dan Webb to work out a plea agreement with the Department of Justice. Though voters didn’t know it when they went to the polls, the pleas deal negotiations had supposedly been taking place for months” behind the scenes. The possible deal was said to include jail time and to require Jackson Jr.’s resignation from Congress.

Even before the FBI investigation, Jackson Jr. was being investigated by the House Ethics Committee for his alleged attempts to raise money for disgraced former Governor Rod Blagojevich in an attempt to get himself appointed to the US Senate.
