    Connecticut Senator Blumenthal wants more Syrians here faster, proposes to eliminate some screening Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 6, 2015 Colonizing Connecticut? Update October 7th: Follow-up post to the revelation that CAIR is behind (literally) BlumenthalÂ’s proposal to lessen security screening for Syrian refugees, go here. ***Update*** Who is that sinister-looking man over BlumenthalÂ’s left shoulder. It is none other than the Executive Director of CAIR Connecticut. Thanks to Kyle for identifying him. You can bet his interest is not in saving persecuted Christians! See bio below.

    Update: Who was that man over Senator Blumenthal’s left shoulder? Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 7, 2015 Yesterday we told you that Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) is leading the charge to lessen the security screening for Syrian and other Middle Eastern refugees and he wants to expand the so-called P-3 (fraud ridden!) family reunification program. See yesterday’s post by clicking here. That is CAIR-Connecticut’s Executive Director behind Senator Blumenthal. Getting pretty brazen aren’t they, or is Blumenthal just pretty dense to invite CAIR to be so prominently involved in lessening security screening for refugees? Now we know the answer...

    Sexual harassment/misconduct charges have exploded across the landscape leaving no segment of society untouched: Hollywood, comedy, news media, restauranteurs, publishing, business, art, government, and of course, politics.Why, I wondered to nobody in particular, have all these cases just now come crawling out of the closet? It’s not as if this pig-like behavior hasn’t been going on forever - 30 years in the Weinstein case alone. So I can’t help but wonder who is churning this latest outrage which looks oddly similar to the organizing forces behind Black Lives Matter. I seriously doubt if it is the Left as they seem to...

    An open lecture at Scripp’s College in Southern California ignited a firestorm of anti-Muslim sentiment last month when a group in the audience challenged the lecturer about his views on Islamic terrorism and President Trump’s immigration policies. Hussam Ayloush, Executive Director of the Los Angeles chapter of the Council of American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-LA), addressed the Scripps’ audience on the subject of American-Islamic Relations and xenophobic rhetoric in the wake of the 2016 presidential election. The lecture, titled, “Muslims Not Welcome: The Political Ramifications of Islamophobia,” came as part of the school’s Tuesday Noon Academy speaker series held in conjunction with...

    Major American foundations have given millions of dollars in funding to Islamic organizations accused of having ties to radical Islamist movements or designated terrorist organizations and a group of activists are trying to convince them to stop. Groups like Islamic Relief Worldwide, which some countries have banned for allegedly funding Hamas and other terrorist organizations, have received millions of dollars from corporate charities like the GE Foundation, community foundations like the Silicon Valley Community Foundation, and independent foundations like George Soros’ Open Society Foundation.Researchers with the Middle East Forum, an activist group devoted to promoting American interests abroad, identified the financial...

    Politics may make for strange bedfellows, but don’t expect to see Palestinian-American activist Linda Sarsour and City Council Candidate Kalman Yeger turning out the night light and slipping beneath the covers anytime soon. That after both Sarsour and Yeger – arch adversaries in terms of Israeli-Palestinian relations – both categorically denied that Sarsour is supporting Yeger in his run-up to the Nov. 7 election against Yoni Hikind for the open 44th District City Council seat covering Boro Park, Bensonhurst, Midwood and part of Kensington.

    BROOKLYN (WPVI) -- A woman's body was found in a car after a fiery crash on the Gowanus Expressway in Brooklyn Friday morning, and authorities say the driver -- believed to be a man she was dating -- hailed a cab in the middle of the highway while she burned to death. The car was found facing eastbound in the westbound lanes between Hamilton Avenue and Prospect Expressway just after 4 a.m. The 2007 Infiniti G35 was fully on fire. When firefighters put out the flames, they found a badly burned woman in the passenger seat. She was pronounced dead...

    Multiple Excerpts: With more and more videos coming out that appear to document the 'multiple shooter' theory while Las Vegas Sheriff Joseph Lombardo claims its likely that at somewhere along the line, Stephen Paddock probably had some help, we take a look within this ANP story at an emerging theory that continues to pile up evidence - Stephen Paddock may have been an arms dealer working for a shadowy 'deep state' US government agency. Along with taking a look at several emerging warnings that he may have been selling weapons to ISIS terrorists within the United States. We also take...

    According to Muslim feminist bloggers, who write regularly for the site muslimgirl.com, MAS, ICNA, and ISNA are blatantly racist. If Sarsour and her fellow Islamists in the United States are to be believed, they work to "make America better..." "...out of love" for fellow Americans. Yet, their behavior tells another story -- one of closeted bigotry and deceit -- all for the purpose of legitimizing their own false claims to the leadership of mainstream Muslims. In an interview published on ISNA's website, Muzzammil Siddiqi called homosexuality a "moral corruption," and explicitly stated that he supports laws in countries that execute...

    What is the role of the education system in our children’s lives? It seems that it’s constantly changing. Once upon a time, it involved teaching our children things like reading, writing, math, science, history — typical subjects to prepare them for the real world. Now, liberals are seemingly adding more and more to the curriculum, and not everyone is happy about it. Parents were reportedly furious after learning that the San Diego School Board of Trustees partnered with the Council on American-Islamic Relations, or CAIR, to launch an anti-bullying campaign. The campaign involves educating children about Islam, with the purported...

The letter was signed by the leaders of virtually all significant Islamic groups in the United States: 57 Muslim, Arab, and South Asian organizations, many with ties to Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood, including the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), the Muslim American Society (MAS), the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA), Islamic Relief USA, and the Muslim Public Affairs Council...

    Google, Facebook and the rest wield more power than most governments. The secular Left and the proponents of Islamic blasphemy laws have a new issue on which they are making common cause: the quest to destroy the freedom of speech, the cornerstone of our democracy. After Charlottesville, the Left sees its chance to crush all dissent, and given its alliance with Islamic supremacists, this means the implementation in the West of prohibitions on criticism of Islam, including counterterror analysis of the motivating ideology of jihad terrorists. This anti-free speech initiative, if it succeeds, will destroy free society, which cannot exist...

    A strange way to combat anti-Semitism. On August 28, The Anti-Defamation League announced that it had hired Obama holdover, George Selim, as its “Senior Vice President of Programs.” According to the ADL’s press release, Selim will be the ADL’s point man on programs connected to law enforcement, education and community security. This newly created position will ostensibly help the ADL better track, monitor and thwart all forms of xenophobia and prejudice. Selim will report directly to the ADL’s CEO, Jonathan Greenblatt. On paper, Selim, an Arab-American of Egyptian and Lebanese descent, appears qualified for the role. He served in the...

    GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip (AP) — Hamas' new leader in the Gaza Strip said Monday his group has repaired relations with Iran after a five-year rift and is using its newfound financial and military aid to gear up for new hostilities with Israel. The announcement by Yehiyeh Sinwar came as U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres was visiting Israel. At a meeting with the U.N. chief, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu complained about what he called rising anti-Israel activity by Iran and its allies in the region. Iran was once the top backer of Hamas, an Islamic militant group that seeks Israel's...

    I must be much more fair and generous than liberals. Because I would never attack a CEO for what political causes he personally believes in.Liberals clearly don't feel that way. I remember a few years back when the CEO of Mozilla was forced by liberal activists to resign from his company because he gave a PERSONAL $1000 donation to a California PAC fighting gay marriage. This CEO didn't involve his company in politics in any way. He didn't use a dime of company money. The charity was not radical. In fact, it was so mainstream that the leftist voters California voted in favor of traditional marriage....

    The controversy-ridden Council on American-Islamic Relations has welcomed the resignation of Dr. Sebastian Gorka from the White House. The group — which has campaigned for the dismissal of Dr. Gorka from the beginning of the Trump administration — stated: “We welcome the resignation of Sebastian Gorka as a presidential adviser… His extremist and Islamophobic views, and his reported past and current associations with racist and anti-Semitic groups, should have disqualified him from any government position.” The “anti-Semitic” talking point has been widely circulated since Dr. Gorka first took the job as Deputy Assistant to the President in January, but has...

    The swamp is overflowing. It's on the garden path. It's in the lawn. It's on the front stairs. It's in the foyer. It's certainly in Foggy Bottom. The State Department hosted this month leaders from the U.S. Council of Muslim Organizations, which represents a number of organizations including American Muslims for Palestine, or AMP, an organization that promotes "extreme anti-Israel views" and "anti-Zionist" propaganda, according to the Anti-Defamation League, which tracks anti-Israel hate groups.

    WILLMAR, Minn. — The Minnesota chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations wants a Willmar man charged with a hate crime after an incident at a farmer's market last weekend. Willmar police were called to the farmer's market about 11 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 12, on a report that an individual had allegedly been cursing at a young adult male Somali-American selling vegetables at a stand. According to law enforcement reports, he then threw a pig's foot at the Somali. The Willmar Police Department identified the man as Joseph Fernkes, 61, of Willmar. CAIR-MN now wants Fernkes charged with a hate...
