  • Libs Are All Muslims Today

    Being religious is never un-American. Being religious is quintessentially American -Denis McDonough The White House is quick to defend the only religion liberals recognize as legitimate in preparation for congressional hearings on Islamic radicalization in America. Liberals show no such tolerance toward Christianity, but tirelessly defend the rights of terrorists as long as they remember to shout “allahu akbar” at some point during their killing rampages. Rep. Peter King of New York wants to study the reasons why young people are turning themselves into jihadis at such a terrifying rate. Rather than applaud King’s efforts to combat extremism, those much...

    Today I attended the counterprotest held by supporters of Representative Peter King’s investigation into Islamic radicalism. A rally that was held approximately three blocks away from an event staged by radical leftists and Islamic extremists opposed to the very notion of Rep. King’s proposed hearings. Sponsored by the Liberty Alliance-and co-sponsored by numerous anti-sharia organizations throughout the area-it attracted a wide variety of individuals, including many New Yorkers opposed to the construction of the Ground Zero mosque, such as the man pictured above. The rally was in large part organized and emceed by Andy Sullivan from Blue Collar Corner, an...

    February 21, 2011 The King committee: ready to probe subversion By Wes Vernon The lofty, privileged hear-no-evil see-no-evil advantage that Islamofascism has enjoyed in the United States may soon be a thing of the past. For starters, this likely means a look at the Muslim Brotherhood and Islam's persistent and silent invasion of the U.S. The House Homeland Security Committee is ready to take on the subversives who want Americans dead. As previously reported in this space, committee chairman Peter King (R-N.Y.) has come under increasing pressure to cancel or water down his planned investigation. The congressman appears to have...

    Apparently there is a contest going on at MSNBC to see who will emerge as the "face of hate" for the network of insane liberal hate. Newsbusters' Noel sheppard writes that Lawrence O'Donnell berated Congressman Steve King (R-IA) over President Obama's religious background, and actually asked the Iowa Republican if he was a Muslim. After treating King like a hostile witness in a murder trial, O'Donnell repeatedly asked King if he had identification proving he was a Christian. "Should I take you at your word or should I maybe suspect you're a Muslim? Do you have a Christian ID you...

    CAIR says Peter King doesn’t think American Muslims are real Americans. CAIR director Corey Saylor is angry at Republican Peter King for his intention to drag members of the American Muslim community before his House Homeland Security Commission, which he chairs. So what does Saylor do in his role as representative of the “religion of peace?” Why, start to cast aspersions on the good Republican. That’s what. He also accused King—who just wants to help the American Muslim community by finding the radicals there—of misrepresenting the number of Muslims in the US who do not report on the bad apples...

    Never to let a "good crisis go to waste" (i.e., as an excuse to transfer more power and control to federal politicians and bureaucrats), reports (my emphasis) that mere hours since the Arizona mass murders: "Rep. Robert Brady (D-Pa.) reportedly plans to introduce legislation that would make it a federal crime to use language or symbols that COULD BE PERCEIVED as threatening or inciting violence against a federal official or member of Congress." "Perceived"? "Could be"? And who gets the arbitrary, unbridled power to "perceive" what "could be" threatening? Him? Or, some other politician, bureaucrat, or board of self-annointed...
  • A fox in the US House: Peter King’s “ willful blindness”

    In late February New York Representative Peter King’s House Committee on Homeland Security will begin hearings to examine the radicalization of Muslims in the United States and the extent to which “moderate” followers of Islam either contribute to the problem or assist law enforcement in combating it. It should come as no surprise that King has been roundly criticized by Muslims and leftists nationwide, being accused of “…throwing more gasoline on the fire by opening hearings whose main purpose seems to be to pressure US Muslims into showy denunciations of terrorism.” King maintains that there is “…a real threat coming...

    AOL News ^ | Jan 20, 2011 | John R. Lott Jr.
    Just 24 hours after the shooting in Tucson, politicians were calling for more gun control. And the drumbeat has continued. On Sunday, Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., called for using the information supplied on people's applications to join the military to determine whether they will be banned from buying guns. Sens.Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., and Richard Lugar, R-Ind., promised a new push for renewing at least part of the federal assault weapons ban. The previous week had been filled with calls for everything from gun show regulations to a thousand-foot gun-free zone around politicians. But while the emotional reaction to a mass...

    Congressman Peter King (R-NY) told Politico Tuesday that in his upcoming hearings on radicalization among American Muslims, he was "not planning to call as witnesses such Muslim community critics as the Investigative Project on Terrorism's Steve Emerson and Jihad Watch's Robert Spencer,who have large followings among conservatives but are viewed as antagonists by many Muslims." Based on this, it appears that this will be a show trial. Between Emerson and Spencer, the whole of it is covered. Emerson knows who all the players are and what groups and cells they are affiliated with. He knows who everyone is and what...
  • Top Republican Rep. Pete King to Introduce Gun-Control Legislation

    The chairman of the House Committee on Homeland Security Peter King, R-New York, announced today that he will introduce a bill that would ban knowingly carrying a firearm within 1,000 feet of certain high-profile government officials. [Mayor Michael Bloomberg] and I have discussed that we are introducing in the next several weeks legislation which would make it a federal crime to carry a weapon within 1,000 feet of any event which is attended by the President, the Vice President, members of the Senate, members of the House of Representatives, Cabinet officials, including the CIA director as well as federal judges,”...

    It’s a well-worn mantra in politics to never let a crisis go to waste, so it comes as little surprise that public officials and the chattering class are wasting no time in dusting off some of their wilder ideas in the aftermath of the tragic shooting in Tucson, Arizona.With only a few days detached from the national tragedy, here’s the list of the top five most ridiculous proposals already floated by your national leaders and thinkers.1.

    There aren't many pro-gun-control Republicans in Congress, but Long Island's Peter King is one of them. Today he announced legislation — with anti-gun crusader Mayor Bloomberg at his side — that would make it a crime to "knowingly carry a gun within 1,000 feet of the President, Vice President, Members of Congress or judges of the Federal Judiciary."

    Rep. Peter King, a Republican from New York, will introduce legislation that will make it a federal crime to carry a firearm within 1,000 feet of federal officeholders and judges in response to the shooting in Tucson that killed Judge John Roll and gravely injured Rep. Gabrielle Giffords. King, who chairs the Homeland Security committee in the House, will get support from New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, a longtime advocate for gun control (via The Daily Caller): Rep. Peter King, a Republican from New York, is planning to introduce legislation that would make it illegal to bring a gun...

    Rep. Peter King says that Republicans must have an “intelligent debate” over their opposition to the health care reform law and other policies backed by President Barack Obama, rather than stonewalling Democrats without discussion for the next two years. A frequent Obama critic, the New York Republican said that his party must use substantive arguments to push back against the president. “Republicans have to conduct an intelligent debate, we have to show we're not just against President Obama and everything he does,” King said Monday night on Fox News Channel's "The O'Reilly Factor." Rep. Peter King says that Republicans must...

    If 2010 was the year America finally woke up to political Islam's ne farious reach on US soil, with luck 2011 will be the year we launch an offensive against it. One way to begin that process is through hearings that Rep. Peter King (R-NY), the new chair of the House Homeland Security Committee, plans to hold on American Muslim radicalization. Attention to this issue offers an opportunity for American Muslims to confront the radicalization problem and provide solutions -- as only they can. My group, the American Islamic Forum for Democracy, believes these hearings will shed light on the...

    Muslim congressman Keith Ellison accuses GOP’s Peter King of bigotry. The very proud and very first Islamic congressman from Minnesota, Keith Ellison, does not like Peter King at all. In fact, he downright loathes him. That explains why his appearance on MSNBC’s low-rated "The Ed Show," hosted by constantly angry Ed Schultz, was highlighted by nothing more than one personal attack after another against New York’s Peter King, who has said he intends to hold hearings on radical American Muslims in 2011. In an appearance that involved more character assassination than reasoning and more absurd analogies than intellectual honesty, Ellison...

    The radicalization of Muslim communities will be the subject of Congressional hearings next year when Rep. Peter King (R-NY) becomes chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee. The impetus for the hearings, according to the congressman, are complaints by law enforcement officials concerning the lack of cooperation of Muslim leaders in terrorism investigations. A CBS News report on the planned hearings, announced Thursday, quoted two apparent Muslim leaders: Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN), the first Muslim member of Congress, and Abed Ayoub, legal director of American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee. Rather than displaying any concern about the difficulties encountered by law enforcement or,...

    After WikiLeaks' unauthorized release of a quarter of a million State Department documents Sunday, Rep. Peter King (R-Seaford) called for the Swedish website to be designated a "foreign terrorist organization" and its founder Julian Assange to be charged as a spy. "WikiLeaks presents a clear and present danger to the national security of the United States," he wrote Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton. "I strongly urge you to work within the administration to use every offensive capability of the U.S. government to prevent further damaging releases by WikiLeaks," said King in the letter he made public Sunday.
