Anti-Iran Rally Turns Pro-Palin

The anti-Iran rally went on without Sarah Palin, unfortunately it was a disaster in numbers, with only about 2,000 people showing up. Maybe if they had let Sarah attend she could have brought in a crowd like she did in Florida, 60,000…

The rally ended up with overtones of of being Pro-Palin and anti Democrat, which upset the higher ups. Too bad. They are pissed because it became a political rally… First of all, what do they think the rally was in the first place. It was political against Iran. Second of all, it would not have turned into a partisan political issue had they let Sarah attend and had Hillary not blown her cool acting like a 5 year old by cancelling her appearance in the first place. Or maybe if Joe Biden or or Barack Obama had decided to attend, then maybe just maybe this would have been a nice UNITED front to show the terrorist from Iran.

I hope the Jewish voters pay attention to this and really think hard before throwing their vote behind Obama.

Jewish Groups Furious That Protest Against Ahmadinejad Was, At Times, A Pro-Palin, Bash-The-Dems Affair

Politics and diplomacy were not a good mix at Monday’s protest rally against Iran at the United Nations. 

Hillary Clinton and Sarah Palin didn’t participate in the “Stop Iran Now” rally and there were a lot of hard feelings about it. 

It was a simple sign that read “We Want Sarah. Shame On The Rally Organizer.” 

Howard Webber from Brooklyn held it. 

“As important an event as this is, you needed a unity of Democrats and Republicans to show Ahmadinejad that we’re not going to accept a nuclear Iran.” 

Buddy Macy of Little Fells, N.J., felt much the same way. 

“I’m so disappointed, upset,” Macy said. “She would have brought 10,000-20,000 more supporters of Israel. People who were curious were stopped because of partisan action.” 

The brouhaha started after Clinton pulled out after she learned Palin was invited. Three organizations supporting the rally threatened to pull out unless Palin was disinvited. She was but organizers didn’t stop there. 

They were furious Monday about the political signs brought by some at the rally, like an anti-Obama sign that said, “Jews Against Obama & Ahmadinejad.” 

“I am upset by the sign because this is a non-political event,” said Janice Shorenstein, president of the Jewish Community Relations Council. “We are here today to cry out against Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, not political. American elections are not part of this event.” 

Congressman Anthony Wiener disagreed. 

“I think this is a classic political event in the best sense of the word. Politicians from all corners come here to speak out against Iran,” Wiener said. “I think it would have been fine for Sarah to speak. We just needed someone of equal stature from the Obama campaign to speak.” 

The question is what are the political repercussions not to have politicians speak at the rally?

“Republicans benefitted more than the Democrats did,” political consultant Hank Sheinkopf said. “Why? Sarah Palin wanted to be there, but it looks like she was purposely told not to and rejected. It gives her standing, particularly among those people who are thinking about voting Republican anyway.”

Both Clinton and Palin tried to make political hay anyway. Clinton released a statement. Palin released the speech she would have given. She will be in New York on Monday and Tuesday to meet with world leaders. Republicans hopes that helps boost her foreign policy credentials.

With the General Assembly now in session, avoid the East Side if you can. There will be the usual traffic troubles all week. 

Streets will be closed at different times, anywhere from the FDR to Madison Avenue, between 42nd and 57th streets.


Bin Laden Video Warns Iraqi Sunnis and Threatens To Eliminate Israel

Bin Laden’s latest attempt to garner support in Iraq, shows his disperation as Sunni’s turning back on Al Qaeda. This is the fifth tape from Al Qaeda since September, when reports first started to show that the surge in Iraq was working well and terrorist tactics were becoming less effective.

In an attempt to recruit new supporters, Bin Laden brought the issue of Isreal into the picture, promising to get rid of all Jews from Jordan to the sea…

Al Qaeda presence in Gaza and Lebanon have been previously confirmed, however this sounds like a call for representation in those regions to begin open recruitment. If Al Qaeda in Iraq should fail, Bin Laden needs another group to become visible or else he faces larger losses in recruitment.

It looks like 2008 could be a death blow to Al Qaeda in Iraq, provided our liberal media and factions of government do not interfere with our military doing their job.

CAIRO, Egypt  —  Usama bin Laden warned Iraq’s Sunni Arabs against fighting Al Qaeda and vowed to expand the terror group’s holy war to Israel in a new audiotape Saturday, threatening “blood for blood, destruction for destruction.”

Most of the 56-minute tape dealt with Iraq, apparently Al Qaeda’s latest attempt to keep supporters in Iraq unified at a time when the U.S. military claims to have Al Qaeda’s Iraq branch on the run.

The tape did not mention Pakistan or the assassination of Benazir Bhutto, though Pakistan’s government has blamed Al Qaeda and the Taliban for her death on Thursday.

But bin Laden’s comments offered an unusually direct attack on Israel, which has warned of growing Al Qaeda activity in Palestinian territory. The terror network is not believed to have taken a strong role there so far.

“We intend to liberate Palestine, the whole of Palestine from the (Jordan) river to the sea,” he said, threatening “blood for blood, destruction for destruction.”

“We will not recognize even one inch for Jews in the land of Palestine as other Muslim leaders have,” bin Laden said.

In Iraq, a number of Sunni Arab tribes in western Anbar province have formed a coalition fighting Al Qaeda-linked insurgents that U.S. officials credit for deeply reducing violence in the province. The U.S. military has been working to form similar “Awakening Councils” in other areas of Iraq. /**/

White House spokesman Tony Fratto said bin Laden’s tape shows that Al Qaeda’s aim is to block democracy and freedom for all Iraqis.

“It also reminds us that the mission to defeat Al Qaeda in Iraq is critically important and must succeed,” Fratto said. “The Iraqi people — every day, and in increasing numbers — are choosing freedom and standing against the murderous, hateful ideology of AQI. And we stand with them.”

Several hours before the tape was issued, the top U.S. commander in Iraq, Gen. David Petraeus, said Al Qaeda was becoming increasingly fearful of losing the support of Sunni Arabs and had begun targeting the leaders of the Awakening Councils.

Petraeus said Al Qaeda attaches “enormous importance” to “these tribes that have turned against them, and to the general sense that Sunni Arab communities have rejected them more and more around Iraq.”

“They are trying to counter this and they have done so by attacking them,” which is increasingly turning Sunnis against Al Qaeda, he said.

Iraq’s interior ministry spokesman Maj. Gen. Abdul Kareem Khalaf claimed that 75 percent of Al Qaeda in Iraq’s terrorist network had been destroyed in 2007, and gave some of the credit to the rise of anti-Al Qaeda in Iraq councils.

Petraeus said that despite a number of successes against Al Qaeda in recent months, the terror network remains “the most significant enemy Iraq faces because it carries out the most horrific attacks.”

In the audiotape, bin Laden denounced Abdul-Sattar Abu Risha, the former leader of the Anbar Awakening Council, who was killed in a September bombing claimed by Al Qaeda.

“The most evil of the traitors are those who trade away their religion for the sake of their mortal life,” bin Laden said.

Bin Laden said U.S. and Iraqi officials are seeking to set up a “national unity government” joining the country’s Sunnis, Shiites and Kurds.

“Our duty is to foil these dangerous schemes, which try to prevent the establishment of an Islamic state in Iraq, which would be a wall of resistance against American schemes to divide Iraq,” he said.

He called on Iraq’s Sunni Arabs to rally behind the Islamic State of Iraq, the insurgent umbrella group led by Al Qaeda. Besides the Awakening Councils, some Sunni insurgent groups that continue to fight the Americans have rejected the Islamic State.

Bin Laden said Sunnis should pledge their allegiance to Abu Omar al-Baghdadi, the little known “emir” or leader of the Islamic State of Iraq. U.S. officials have claimed that al-Baghdadi does not exist, saying Al Qaeda created the name to give its coalition the illusion of an Iraqi leadership.

“Failure to give allegiance to the emir after he has been endorsed leads to great evils,” bin Laden warned. “Emir Abu Omar would rather have his neck severed than betray the Muslims … Emir Abu Omar and his brothers are not one of those who accept compromise or meeting the enemy halfway.”

The authenticity of the tape could not be independently confirmed. But the voice resembled that of bin Laden. The tape was posted on an Islamic militant Web site where Al Qaeda’s media arm, Al-Sahab, issues the group’s messages.

The tape was the fifth message released by bin Laden this year, a flurry of activity after he went more than a year without issuing any tapes. The messages began with a Sept. 8 video that showed bin Laden for the first time in nearly three years. The other messages this year have been audiotapes.

In an October tape, bin Laden sought to patch up splits between Iraqi insurgent factions, urging them to unite with the Islamic State of Iraq — the insurgent coalition led by Al Qaeda. He took a conciliatory stance, chiding even Al Qaeda’s followers for being too “extremist” in their positions toward other insurgents.

Bin Laden’s deputy Ayman al-Zawahri took a sharper tone in a Dec. 16 video, branding as “traitors” those who work with the anti-Qaida tribal councils and calling for Sunnis to purge anyone cooperating with the Americans.

Black Support For Ron Paul

Previously it was revealed that Ron Paul had accepted donations from Stormfront’s White Supremisist leader Don Black… Well now a couple of pictures from the Event in Florida have surfaced with Ron Paul and his Black support… Don and Derek Black… This photo op is more damning than Hillary’s Arafat shoot…

Ron Paul’s Photo-Op with Stormfront

Thu, Dec 20, 2007 at 3:53:50 pm PST

An LGF reader emailed this photograph, showing Ron Paul at the Values Voters Presidential Debate in Fort Lauderdale on September 17, 2007. Immediately to Paul’s left: Don Black, the owner of neo-Nazi hate site Stormfront. If anyone knows who the creepy guy in the hat is, please post a comment.

Update: it’s Derek Black, Don’s son.

UPDATE at 12/20/07 5:17:22 pm:

Here’s another picture from the same event, showing Ron Paul signing an autograph for Derek Black:

UPDATE at 12/20/07 9:48:41 pm:

And if you’re wondering where these photos came from, here’s the source: Stormfront. (Google redirect page.) They were apparently taken by Stormfront member Jamie Kelso, with a Canon PowerShot SD1000 camera.

Note that Paul has refused to relinquish the donation from Don Black and actually recently defended his stance on keeping it…
It would appear to me that Ron Paul is trying to play popular anti-Israel card to gain votes… He must see this lobby as the main stream voting group right now…

9/11 An inside Job, Run By Alex Jones

Another Alex Jones hack job where the basis of his claims starts with a lie… The basis of this premise is that Cossiga is an honest politician who exposed Operation Gladio. Well folks, if memory serves be correct, Cossiga revealled his involvement in the establisment of Operation Gladio after a rival , Andreotti, exposed him as being involved in it. In order to avoid an impeachment, Cossiga came out and told everyone what Operation Gladio was and that he helped establish it. This was not an act of exposure on his part, but rather a confession. Shortly after he confessed, he resigned his Presidency…

The second problem with Jones’ conspiracy theory is that the actual actions of Gladio during the cold war are still unknown. There is much speculation as to their false flag work, but I do not recall seeing and definitive proof of such actions taking place…

It would seem to me that Jones’ and Cossiga are doing nothing but putting forth speculation as fact, which is typical of Jones and his moonbat theories… The problem is the liberal and uneducated fall for this crap every time..


Ex-Italian President: Intel Agencies Know 9/11 An Inside Job
Man who set up Operation Gladio tells Italy’s largest newspaper attacks were run by CIA, Mossad

Former Italian President and the man who revealed the existence of Operation Gladio Francesco Cossiga has gone public on 9/11, telling Italy’s most respected newspaper that the attacks were run by the CIA and Mossad and that this was common knowledge amongst global intelligence agencies.

Cossiga was elected President of the Italian Senate in July 1983 before winning a landslide 1985 election to become President of the country in 1985.

Cossiga gained respect from opposition parties as one of a rare breed – an honest politician – and led the country for seven years until April 1992.

Cossiga’s tendency to be outspoken upset the Italian political establishment and he was forced to resign after revealing the existence of, and his part in setting up, Operation Gladio – a rogue intelligence network under NATO auspices that carried out bombings across Europe in the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s.

Gladio’s specialty was to carry out what they coined “false flag operations,” terror attacks that were blamed on their domestic and geopolitical opposition.

Cossiga’s revelations contributed to an Italian parliamentary investigation of Gladio in 2000, during which evidence was unearthed that the attacks were being overseen by the U.S. intelligence apparatus.

In March 2001, Gladio agent Vincenzo Vinciguerra stated, in sworn testimony, “You had to attack civilians, the people, women, children, innocent people, unknown people far removed from any political game. The reason was quite simple: to force … the public to turn to the state to ask for greater security.”

Cossiga’s new revelations appeared last week in Italy’s oldest and most widely read newspaper, Corriere della Sera. Below appears a rough translation.

“[Bin Laden supposedly confessed] to the Qaeda September [attack] to the two towers in New York [claiming to be] the author of the attack of the 11, while all the [intelligence services] of America and Europe … now know well that the disastrous attack has been planned and realized from the CIA American and the Mossad with the aid of the Zionist world in order to put under accusation the Arabic Countries and in order to induce the western powers to take part … in Iraq [and] Afghanistan.”

Cossiga first expressed his doubts about 9/11 in 2001, and is quoted in Webster Tarpley’s book as stating that “The mastermind of the attack must have been a “sophisticated mind, provided with ample means not only to recruit fanatic kamikazes, but also highly specialized personnel. I add one thing: it could not be accomplished without infiltrations in the radar and flight security personnel.”

Coming from a widely respected former head of state, Cossiga’s assertion that the 9/11 attacks were an inside job and that this is common knowledge amongst global intelligence agencies is highly unlikely to be mentioned by any establishment media outlets, because like the hundreds of other sober ex-government, military, air force professionals, allied to hundreds more professors and intellectuals – he can’t be sidelined as a crackpot conspiracy theorist.

My Enemy’s Enemy Is My Friend – Ron Paul 2008

It seems that Ron Paul has attracked another interesting support group. I recent posted on WasteOfMyOxygen about Muslim extremists in the US who support Paul, now I am posting about how Neo-Nazi White Supremists are supporting him. Now this may seem odd to many as the obvious would dictate that the Neo-Nazi’s would not want the Muslim extremists in the US and the same goes for the Muslim extremists, however this fundemental principal is the old method of fighting the greater evil, in this case Jews. I suspect Mahmoud Ahmadinejad will be the next big campaign funder for and trumpet blower for Mr. Paul as he did host earlier this year, the Holocaust Deniers Reunion… I am sure many of the members and leaders of the groups outlined below were participants…

Maybe Mr. Paul can get a good voter turnout if he has Ahmadinejad run as his Vice President… Then the will definetly get the Muslim and KKK votes. A whole new meaning to the “White” House.

Mr. Paul needs to look at his supporters, and sources of funding and take a moral stance to determine whether or not he will run his campaign using funding from individuals and groups with this much racist and bigoted background.

Americans need to really think about if Ron Paul is the best candidate for our next President, considering his base of supports he is gaining, there must be something of his character and past political agenda that is attracking the likes of them. He is openly against supporting Israel in any capacity and has made that quite clear, however how far will he go to remove support from Israel. He open supports complete withdrawal of the US military from Islamic countries, how much damage will result from our complete removal and how much power will the extremist Terrorist gain in the world. How much weaponary and how large of a force will they build to attack America again.

Mr. Paul needs to reevaluate the people funding him and return the money immediately. Don’t be a Hillary and wait until it makes the mainstream liberal media to do so.

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad

The Ron Paul Campaign and its Neo-Nazi Supporters

By Andrew Walden

When some in a crowd of anti-war activists meeting at Democrat National Committee HQ in June, 2005 suggested Israel was behind the 9-11 attacks, DNC Chair Howard Dean was quick to get behind the microphones and denounce them saying: “such statements are nothing but vile, anti-Semitic rhetoric.”

When KKK leader David Duke switched parties to run for Louisiana governor as a Republican in 1991, then-President George H W Bush responded sharply, saying, “When someone asserts the Holocaust never took place, then I don’t believe that person ever deserves one iota of public trust. When someone has so recently endorsed Nazism, it is inconceivable that someone can reasonably aspire to a leadership role in a free society.”

Ron Paul is different.

Rep Ron Paul (R-TX) is the only Republican candidate to demand immediate withdrawal from Iraq and blame US policy for creating Islamic terrorism. He has risen from obscurity and is beginning to raise millions of dollars in campaign contributions. Paul has no traction in the polls — 7% of the vote in New Hampshire — but he at one point had more cash on hand than John McCain. And now he is planning a $1.1 million New Hampshire media blitz just in time for the primary.

Ron Paul set an internet campaigning record raising more than $4 million in small on-line donations in one day, on November 5, 2007. But there are many questions about Paul’s apparent unwillingness to reject extremist groups’ public participation in his campaign and financial support of his November 5 “patriot money-bomb plot.”

On October 26 nationally syndicated radio talk show host Michael Medved posted an “Open Letter to Rep. Ron Paul” on It reads:

Dear Congressman Paul:
Your Presidential campaign has drawn the enthusiastic support of an imposing collection of Neo-Nazis, White Supremacists, Holocaust Deniers, 9/11 “Truthers” and other paranoid and discredited conspiracists.
Do you welcome- or repudiate – the support of such factions?
More specifically, your columns have been featured for several years in the American Free Press -a publication of the nation’s leading Holocaust Denier and anti-Semitic agitator, Willis Carto. His book club even recommends works that glorify the Nazi SS, and glowingly describe the “comforts and amenities” provided for inmates of Auschwitz.
Have your columns appeared in the American Free Press with your knowledge and approval?
As a Presidential candidate, will you now disassociate yourself, clearly and publicly, from the poisonous propaganda promoted in such publications?
As a guest on my syndicated radio show, you answered my questions directly and fearlessly.
Will you now answer these pressing questions, and eliminate all associations between your campaign and some of the most loathsome fringe groups in American society?

Along with my listeners (and many of your own supporters), I eagerly await your response.
Respectfully, Michael Medved

Medved has received no official response from the Paul campaign.

There is more. The Texas-based Lone Star Times October 25 publicly requested a response to questions about whether the Paul campaign would repudiate and reject a $500 donation from white supremacist founder Don Black and end the Stormfront website fundraising for Paul. The Times article lit up the conservative blogosphere for the next week. Paul supporters packed internet comment boards alternately denouncing or excusing the charges. Most politicians are quick to distance themselves from such disreputable donations when they are discovered. Not Paul.

Daniel Siederaski of the Jewish Telegraph Agency tried to get an interview with Paul, calling him repeatedly but not receiving any return calls. Wrote Siederaski November 9: “Ron Paul will take money from Nazis. But he won’t take telephone calls from Jews.” [Update] Finally on November 13 the Paul campaign responded. In a short interview JTA quotes Jim Perry, head of Jews for Paul describing his work on the Paul campaign along side a self-described white supremacist which Perry says he has reformed.

Racist ties exposed in the Times article go far beyond a single donation. Just below links to information about the “BOK KKK Ohio State Meeting“, and the “BOK KKK Pennsylvania State Meeting“, website announced: “Ron Paul for President” and “Countdown to the 5th of November”. The links take readers directly to a Ron Paul fundraising site from which they can click into the official Ron Paul 2008 donation page on the official campaign site. Like many white supremacists, Stormfront has ties to white prison gangs.

Finally on October 30 Paul’s campaign came back with a non-response. In a phone interview with the Lone Star Times, Ron Paul national communications director Jesse Benton was non-committal about removing the donations link from After a week of internet controversy, the best Benton could come up with is:

“We hadn’t thought of these options but I’ll bring up these ideas with the campaign director. Blocking the IP address sounds like a simple and practical step that could be taken. I doubt there is anything we can do legally. Tracking donations that came from Stormfront’s site sounds more complicated. I’m concerned about setting a precedent for the campaign having to screen and vet everyone who makes a donation. It is important to keep in mind is (sic) that we didn’t solicit this support, and we aren’t interested in spending al of our time and resources focused on this issue. We want to focus on Dr. Paul’s positive agenda for freedom.”

Perhaps frustrated by the weasel words, Lone Star Times asked Benton: “Bottom line- Will the Ron Paul campaign be rejecting the $500 contribution made by neo-Nazi Don Black?”

Benton’s response:

“At this time, I cannot say that we will be rejecting Mr. Black’s contribution, but I will bring the matter to the attention of our campaign director again, and expect some sort of decision to be made in coming days.”

On October 11 Stormfront Radio endorsed Ron Paul for President saying:

“Whatever organization you belong to, remember first and foremost that you’re a white nationalist, then put aside your differences with one another and work together. Work together to strive to get someone in the Oval Office who agrees with much of what we want for our future. Look at the man, look at the issues, look at our future. Vote for Ron Paul, 2008.”

As of November 11–the Ron Paul donation link is still up and active on Stormfront. No IP address has been blocked. Stormfront’s would-be stormtroopers are still encouraged to contribute to Paul’s campaign.

The white supremacists do more than raise funds. Blogger Adam Holland reports:

“one of Rep. Paul’s top internet organizers in Tennessee is a neo-Nazi leader named Will Williams (aka ‘White Will’). Williams was the southern coordinator for William Pierce‘s National Alliance Party, the largest neo-Nazi party in the U.S.”

Pierce is author of the racist “Turner Diaries”. When the Lone Star Times exposed the $500 Don Black donation, Williams responded on the national Ron Paul meetup site,

“Must Dr. Paul capitulate to our Jewish masters’ demands?”

The mild responses to Williams’ MeetUp post make a sharp contrast to the hatred and invective with which Paul supporters respond to Medved or any other writer questioning Paul’s refusal to disassociate himself from his racist supporters. Any other campaign would presume Williams’ expression of anti-Semitism was a dirty trick by an opposing campaign. Williams would have been hurriedly denounced and booted out of the campaign. Not Ron Paul.

Williams has also organized at least one other discussion, “the Israel factor revisited” on the national Ron Paul MeetUp site. Again the measured tone of the remarks by Ron Paul supporters in the comments section contrasts sharply with the invective Paul supporters rain down upon bloggers who oppose him. Paul’s campaign relies heavily on MeetUp sites to organize. Over 61,000 Paul supporters are registered on MeetUp as compared to 3,400 for Barack Obama, 1,000 for Hillary Clinton, 1,800 for Dennis Kucinich and only a couple of dozen members for most other candidates.

On the white-supremacist Vanguard News Network, Williams links to Paul’s “grassroots” fundraising site and organizes other racists to “game You Tube” to advance a specific Ron Paul video to the top of You Tube’s rankings. Writes Williams, “Everybody here can do this, except bjb w/his niggerberry.” Holland points out, “BJB” stands for “burn Jew burn”. BJB’s internet signature is, “Nothing says lovin’ like a Jew in the oven.”

Williams is not Paul’s only supremacist supporter. “Former” KKK leader (and convicted fraudster) David Duke’s website, calls Ron Paul “our king” and cheers while “Ron Paul Hits a Home Run on Jay Leno Show.” Duke also includes a “Ron Paul campaign update” and plugs Ron Paul fundraising efforts. These articles are posted right next to articles such as “Ten reasons why the Holocaust is a fraud” and “Germans Still Remember their Historical Greatness“-featuring a map of Hitler’s Third Reich at its 1942 military height, just in case anybody doesn’t get the point. Apparently “Dr. Paul’s positive agenda for freedom” is attractive to those who ape the world’s worst tyrants and genocidaires.

There are others. In a You Tube video circulating the internet, Ron Paul is endorsed by Hutton Gibson, a leading Holocaust denier and father of controversial actor and director Mel Gibson.

Ron Paul is supported by Patrick Buchanan, whose website carries videos and articles such as: “Ron Paul epiphany” and “Ron Paul a new hope.” Buchanan has a long history of remarks some call anti-Semitic (see link). Ron Unz, editor of Buchanan’s American Conservative magazine, is a Paul contributor and may have helped raise money from Silicon Valley sources. Ron Paul’s American Free Press supporters run literally from one end of the country to the other:

There is more to the Paul campaign than racists. The mis-named 9-11 “truth” movement has also been a big source of Paul support. The Detroit Free Press describes the scene as Republican Presidential candidate Rudy Giuliani shared the ferry ride back from a Mackinac Island Michigan Republican caucus September 21.

“According to one eyewitness, Giuliani was beset by dozens of Paul enthusiasts as he was leaving the island, some of whom shouted taunts about 9/11, including: ‘9/11 was an inside job’ and ‘Rudy, Rudy, what did you do with the gold?’ — an apparent reference to rumors about $200 million in gold alleged to have disappeared in the collapse of the World Trade Center towers. Ed Wyszynski, a longtime party activist from Eagle, (MI) said the Paul supporters threatened to throw Giuliani overboard and harassed him as he took shelter in the ferry’s pilothouse for the 15-minute journey back to Mackinaw City.”

Paul campaign spokesman Jesse Benton told the Detroit Free Press “Ron Paul does not think that 9/11 was an inside job.” But the “truthers” aren’t fooled. Paul’s committee paid 9-11 conspiracy nut and talk-show host Alex Jones $1300. Jones claims the payment is a partial refund after he over paid August 27 when giving Paul a $2300 contribution. Aaron Dykes of Alex Jones’ company Magnolia Management and Alex Jones’ Infowars website gave Ron Paul $1600. Jones has been pumping Paul’s campaign on his nationally syndicated radio show for months. Alex Jones got Paul’s first radio interview January 17 after announcing his Presidential campaign. LINK: In a lengthy October 5 interview — apparently Paul’s fourth with Jones — Paul thanks Jones for his support saying: “You and the others have always said run, run, run.” Alex Jones’ websites are piled with Ron Paul articles and campaign paraphernalia for sale.

Other Paul donations and activists come from leftists and Muslims. Singer and Democrat contributor Barry Manilow is also a Ron Paul contributor and possibly a fundraiser. There are close ties (but no endorsements) between Ron Paul’s San Francisco Bay Area campaign and Cindy Sheehan’s long-shot Congressional campaign.

An Austin, TX MeetUp site shows Paul supporters also involved in leftist groups such as Howard Dean’s “Democracy for America.” MeetUp lists other sites popular with members of the Ron Paul national MeetUp group. The number one choice is “9/11 questions” another leading choice is “conspiracy.” chimes in writing:

“Brothers and Sisters, please vote for Ron Paul in the Republican Primaries. It’s our obligation to come together and try to stand up for not only our best interests, but the best interests of the entire Ummah.”

A Ron Paul flyer directed at Muslims reads: “Who is Ron Paul and why does the Jerusalem Post call him crazy?” A “Muslims for Paul” bumper sticker puts the Islamic crescent in Paul’s name.

The ugly mishmash of hate groups backing Paul has a Sheehan connection as well. David Duke is a big Cindy Sheehan supporter eagerly proclaiming “Cindy Sheehan is right” after Sheehan said, “My son joined the Army to protect America, not Israel.” members joined Sheehan at her protest campout in Crawford, TX and posed with her for photos. Sheehan is also intimately associated with the Lew Rockwell libertarian website which has posted over 200 articles by Ron Paul as well as some “scholarly” 9-11 conspiracy theories.

The white supremacist American Nationalist Union also backed Sheehan’s Crawford protests and endorsed David Duke for president of the United States in 1988. Now they are backing Ron Paul-linking to numerous Pro-Paul articles posted on

Medved’s questions surprise many, but they shouldn’t. Paul’s links the anti-Semites and white supremacists continue a trend which has been developing since the 9-11 attacks. Barely six weeks after 9-11, Paul was already busy blaming America. On October 27, 2001 Paul wrote on, “Some sincere Americans have suggested that our modern interventionist policy set the stage for the attacks of 9-11”. Paul complained: “often the ones who suggest how our policies may have played a role in evoking the attacks are demonized as unpatriotic.” He says the US is “bombing Afghanistan” and is upset nobody is interested in his solution:

“It is certainly disappointing that our congressional leaders and administration have not considered using letters of marque and reprisal as an additional tool to root out those who participated in the 9-11 attacks.”

Paul is quick to blame the victim when the issue is Islamist violence. But when it comes to ordinary criminal violence, Paul once blamed “95% of black males.” During Paul’s 1996 Congressional campaign a Houston Chronicle article raised questions about a 1992 Ron Paul newsletter article. Under Ron Paul’s name was written: “If you have ever been robbed by a black teenaged male, you know how unbelievably fleet-footed they can be.’ Paul added: “I think we can safely assume that 95 percent of the black males in that city (Washington, D.C.) are semi-criminal or entirely criminal.”

Texas Monthly later interviewed Paul. He claims:

“They were never my words, but I had some moral responsibility for them . . . I actually really wanted to try to explain that it doesn’t come from me directly, but they campaign aides said that’s too confusing. ‘It appeared in your letter and your name was on that letter and therefore you have to live with it.'”

Adds Texas Monthly:

“It is a measure of his stubbornness, determination, and ultimately his contrarian nature that, until this surprising volte-face in our interview, he had never shared this secret. It seems, in retrospect, that it would have been far, far easier to have told the truth at the time.”

Paul defenders often point to a December 24, 2002 Paul essay, “What really divides us?” Wrote Paul,

“Racism is simply an ugly form of collectivism, the mindset that views humans only as members of groups and never as individuals. Racists believe that all individual who share superficial physical characteristics are alike; as collectivists, racists think only in terms of groups.”

What his supporters don’t often mention is that Paul deployed this fine rhetoric only in defense of Sen. Trent Lott (R-MS). Lott was pilloried in the press for his flattering words about the segregationist 1948 Presidential run of South Carolina Senator Strom Thurmond.

Responding to rioting in Los Angeles under the heading “Terrorist Updates”, Paul’s 1992 article exposes a double standard. Substitute the words “Islamist terrorism” for “riots” and try to imagine Paul using this language:

“The cause of the riots is plain: barbarism. If the barbarians cannot loot sufficiently through legal channels (i.e., the riots being the welfare-state minus the middleman), they resort to illegal ones, to terrorism. Trouble is, few seem willing to do anything to stop them. The cops have been handcuffed. And property owners are not allowed to defend themselves. The mayor of Los Angeles, for example, ordered the Korean storekeepers who defended themselves arrested for “discharging a firearm within city limits.” Perhaps the most scandalous aspect of the Los Angeles riots was the response by the mayors, the media, and the Washington politicians. They all came together as one to excuse the violence and to tell white America that it is guilty, although the guilt can be assuaged by handing over more cash. It would be reactionary, racist, and fascist, said the media, to have less welfare or tougher law enforcement. America’s number one need is an unlimited white checking account for underclass blacks.“Rather than helping, all this will ensure that guerrilla violence will escalate. There will be more occasional eruptions such as we saw in Los Angeles, but just as terrifying are the daily muggings, robberies, burglaries, rapes, and killings that make our cities terror zones.”

If one forgets the implication that the US treasury is a “white checking account” or the suggestion that all “underclass blacks” are thugs, it seems that Paul believes that appeasing street criminals “will ensure that guerrilla violence will escalate.” But when it comes to the Islamist terror, Paul’s message, now the theme of his Presidential campaign is: “our policies may have played a role in evoking the attacks.”

The double standard raises questions. Paul’s real motivation for appeasing Islamists may be underlined in quotes from a May 24, 1996 Congress Daily article:

“Stating that lobbying groups who seek special favors and handouts are evil, Paul wrote, ‘By far the most powerful lobby in Washington of the bad sort is the Israeli government’ and that the goal of the Zionist movement is to stifle criticism.”

“Ron Paul-America’s Last Chance”, a January, 2007 article by Ted Lang on the anti-Semitic site, makes a familiar argument for supporting Paul. Lang claims,

“Dr. Paul’s best credentials are those identifying him as a true libertarian, meaning a ‘classical liberal’ of the anti-Federalist genre of libertarians that helped found this country, true liberals such as Thomas Jefferson, Patrick Henry and Samuel Adams….”

Paul himself writing on says:

“Thomas Jefferson spoke for the founders and all our early presidents when he stated: ‘peace, commerce, and honest friendship with all nations, entangling alliances with none…’ which is, ‘one of the essential principles of our government’. The question is: Whatever happened to this principle and should it be restored?”

Perhaps Paul forgets America’s 1801-05 war with the Islamic terrorists known as the Barbary Pirates? Paul’s interpretation of American history is false. This writer explained in “The Colonial War against Islam”:

“In 1786, Thomas Jefferson, then U.S. ambassador to France, and John Adams, then American Ambassador to Britain, met in London with Sidi Haji Abdul Rahman Adja, the Dey’s ambassador to Britain, in an attempt to negotiate a peace treaty based on Congress’ vote of funding. To Congress, these two future presidents later reported the reasons for the Muslims’ hostility towards America, a nation with which they had no previous contacts.

…that it was founded on the Laws of their Prophet, that it was written in their Koran, that all nations who should not have acknowledged their authority were sinners, that it was their right and duty to make war upon them wherever they could be found, and to make slaves of all they could take as Prisoners, and that every Musselman (Muslim) who should be slain in Battle was sure to go to Paradise.'”

Apparently Paul chooses to remember only the parts of American history which benefit his arguments. As part of the War on Terror Paul wants the US to abandon, the US Navy is on duty fighting Islamic pirates off the coast of Somalia, in the Persian Gulf, and Southeast Asia.

In spite of official silence from the Paul Campaign, hordes of Paul supporters lit up the comments section of Michael Medved’s open letter on In a phenomenon familiar to any blogger who posts information negative to Paul, the 500-plus comments include several which indicate that Medved has got Paul’s supporters dead to rights:

  • “Your own Zionism is slipping, Medved! Why should anyone disassociate from 9/11 Truthers?”
  • “I suggest you take off the tin-foil yamika (sic), your brain is fried.”
  • “You will do anything to smear this good man to try and safeguard US policy in Israel.”
  • “Hey Medved. Tell your AIPAC handlers to be nervous. You are failing miserably.”
  • “It’s patently obvious why you don’t support Dr. Paul: He’s not hand-picked by AIPAC and the Likud Party.”

Over at Liberty Post, a self-described “Christian Zionist” identifying himself as ‘David Ben-Ariel’ adds this response:

“If discredited and paranoid Michael Medved is so concerned about it, let him actually follow his Judaism to the Jewish Homeland of Israel and take the treacherous ACLU and its liberal ilk, and every other self-hating, defeatist, godless group and loathsome organization with him. What’s he got to lose, especially if he fails to believe the Israeli oligarchy is under German-Jesuit control and guilty of murdering Yitzhak Rabin? … I’m voting for Ron Paul.”

Besides the Paul backers whose words seem to provide backing to Medved’s case, others complain that it is wrong to question the sources of Paul’s support. Writing on the “Daily Paul”, Mike Bergmaier complains it is “unfair” for Medved to demand Paul renounce the support of anti-Semites, white supremacists, and neo-Nazis. Really? Why?

Lew Rockwell attempts to respond to Medved’s question by echoing leftist themes equating Nazis with mainstream conservatives. Rockwell argues Medved should renounce Cheney and Bush. In a weak effort at verbal judo, Rockwell calls Medved’s letter a “neocon libel.” Rockwell continues:

“Mr. Medved, will you repudiate belligerent nationalists, drooling torturers, scheming warmongers, redistributing pressure groups, foreign aid thieves… (etc)”

and then without even pausing to catch his breath accuses Medved of practicing “guilt by association.”

Perhaps Rockwell hopes weak-minded readers will not notice that associating Medved with “drooling torturers” is itself “guilt by association.” No “drooling torturers” have been identified among Medved’s financial backers but actual neo-Nazis have been identified by name amongst Paul’s. Is this what passes for scholarship at the Ludwig von Mises Institute headed by Rockwell? Judging from many of the comments Paul supporters have flooded the internet with, it apparently is good enough for them.

Meanwhile, elsewhere on the Daily Paul, Paul’s “fair” supporters are organizing to call radio stations and demand they yank Medved’s show, thus demonstrating that censorship is a Libertarian value.

Neither Paul nor his campaign has officially responded to the questions raised by Medved. But then perhaps these types of comments are the official response.

Paul supporters complain endlessly that the “mainstream media” is censoring or ignoring their candidate. They should be careful what they ask for. If Paul wants to be taken seriously, he must stop cowering behind the internet and face these questions. Until then it is only reasonable to presume that Paul is happy to wallow in well-financed obscurity accepting the support of some of the worst enemies of freedom and liberty within American society.

Is CAIR Trying to Islamify WWII

Atlas Shrugs brings an interesting article in where there is an honoring of a Muslim US soldier from WWII. The claim is that this soldier, Nazeem Abdul Hakeem fought on the beaches of Normandy.

As most of us, we have no access to easy to read official records of those that did serve on the beaches, so I cannot make any assertation of truth, however I find it highly suspicious as during WWII there was a strong alliance between the Muslim Middle East and Nazi Germany, which Atlas points out.

What I do find interesting, is the need to create a whole memorial service for 3 soldiers who did not perform any significant acts. If they did serve, then great, they join the ranks of every other soldier that served, that does not have a special ceremony dedicated to just them. Did any of these Muslim soldiers being honored do anything more than every other soldier? What acts of heroism did they perform above the call of duty? Is being Muslim and serving in the US Military itself an act worthy of such designation?

Why after 60 years does this man all of sudden rank above the everyday soldier that does his/her job? Someone is playing politics with the memories of those served this country bravely.

This is political correctness at it’s best…

Atlas reports on Bill Warner’s take, as a man who had several of his immediate family serve on the beaches of Normandy on D-Day…


Look, I am suspect of any World War II veterans group established  in 1997 – uh…… huh? And it is common knowledge that the Muslims were conspiring with the Nazis. FACT. But facts are irrelevant when it comes to the Islamic narrative.

Bill Warner sent me this latest outrage by CAIR — but remember if they keep repeating it, it becomes part of the conventional wisdom. Just ask Israel

Bill writes;

DC: Muslims Veterans to Lay Wreath at WWII Memorial CAIR  11/1/2007     

    (Washington, DC – 11/01/2007) – On Veteran’s Day, American Muslim service members will lay a wreath at the National WWII Memorial to honor Muslims and all those who served in that conflict.

Muslims_vet_bull Additionally, three surviving American Muslim WWII veterans will be honored, including Army Sgt. Nazeem Abdul Hakeem who fought at Normandy.

Who: Muslim American Veterans Association
What: will lay a wreath at the National WWII Memorial to honor American Muslims and others who served in that conflict Where: 17th Street between Constitution and Independence Avenue in Washington D.C.
When: November 11, 2007 (Veterans Day) between 10-11 a.m.

The Muslim American Veterans Association has conducted similar wreath laying at the Korean and Vietnam War Memorials.

For more information: CDR Saleem G. Abdul-Mateen, Muslim American

Bill adds, “I am as close to an expert on the invasion of Normandy as you can get, my father and his 3 brothers were at the invasion of Normandy, my Father (Robert Warner) parachuted into St. Mere Eglise France at 2:30am on 6/06/1944, D-Day, with the 82nd Airborne, there were no Muslim parachuter’s on 6/06/1944.”

Bill Warner’s family


Bill continues,

My uncle, William Warner, was on a wooden Coast Guard Cutter picking up the wounded in the surf at Normandy Beach under heavy machine gun fire from the Germans, there were no Muslims in the surf of Normandy Beach on 6/06/1944.

Robert, William and Harry Warner were involved in the D-Day invasion of Normandy, James (Medical Corps) probably arrived in the war zone sometime after the initial assault.

From air and sea, Allied troops invaded Normandy’s beaches on June 6, 1944, with 5,300 ships, nearly 11,000 airplanes, about 50,000 military vehicles and 154,000 troops (no Muslims)

The strategy was to establish five beachheads as gateways into the German-occupied territory. The assault eventually opened Western Europe to Allied forces and turned the tide against Adolph Hitler and the Muslim SS Corp run by the Grand Mufti, the Muslims were on the side of the Germans.

For CAIR to make such a out right lie and link WW II Muslims who worked for Hitler to Veterans Day is the most appalling, disgusting out right lie that I have ever heard in my whole life, if you want to file another Defamation/Injunction law suit against me (CAIR), bring it on !

There are NO Muslim heroes at D-Day the invasion of Normandy on 6/06/1944, you (CAIR)  are not going to re-write history !

The US Defense Department seems to have a different version of events, seems more like a PR campaign to show how were are not against Muslims

Marine Corps’ First Islamic Prayer Center Dedicated

By Samantha L. Quigley
American Forces Press Service

WASHINGTON, June 7, 2006 – Calling freedom of religion a principal right in “a nation of people from all races and creeds who believe in liberty and freedom,” Deputy Defense Secretary Gordon England helped the Marine Corps dedicated its first Islamic prayer center here yesterday.

England offered his congratulations to the Corps and the leadership of Quantico and the chaplain corps for seeing the need for the center, and working to establish it.

The Navy has two Islamic facilities; however, neither is a dedicated facility similar to the one at Quantico, a Defense Department official said. The Air Force has similar centers at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio and Ramstein Air Base, Germany, according to Air Force public affairs officials. Army information was not available.

Quantico is considered the crossroads of the Marine Corps. The prayer center will help educate many about the Islamic faith while it serves the Islamic community here, England said. Quantico is host to a mixture of U.S. and foreign servicemembers, as well as civilians, Gen. Michael Hagee, commandant of the Marine Corps, said.

“This Islamic prayer center, the first of its kind in the Marine Corps, is really an extension or our ethos, (the) ethos that we take care of one another,” Hagee said. “It is going to provide our Muslim Marines and their families, Muslim Department of Defense civilians and Muslim international military personnel serving with us a proper place for religious services.”

Spiritual devotion is an important component of the profession of arms, as well as important element in quality of life, Hagee said. He added that events like the dedication of the prayer center strengthen the ties that bind.

“I believe that we all share some very important basic values; the respect for human life, the respect for truth and the respect for personal property,” he said.

Rear Adm. Louis Iasiello, chief of Navy chaplains, lent his support to the establishment of the center with a story of Marines and local Iraqi leaders who had gathered in a train terminal south of Baghdad. A Navy chaplain offered a prayer that, “Betrayed neither himself, nor his country, nor his God,” Iasiello said. In fact, the prayer served as an icon of religious respect that united the two groups.

“Today … religious respect takes the form of a center, an Islamic center established to afford those of the Muslim faith the opportunity to pray and worship God in a manner that honors and respects their religious heritage,” he said.

Twenty-four of the 426 Muslim Marines currently serving are stationed at Quantico. This center is a welcome haven for them, Lance Cpl. Mehreena Ahmad said.

“There haven’t been a lot of centers to pray at, but this one’s solely dedicated to us,” she said. “So, we’re just happy that we have a place.”

Staff Sgt. Madyun Shahid echoed her sentiment. “The Marine Corps is recognizing diversity in the Marine Corps, and I’m just happy to have a place … to go worship.”

The prayer center, which was established in an existing structure on the base, is only temporary until an extension to the existing Marine Memorial Chapel is complete. Ground-breaking for the extension is scheduled for fall, and completion is expected in 2008.

Before touring the center with Hagee and Navy Lt. Saiful Islam, Headquarters and Service Battalion chaplain, England acknowledged the long history of Muslim servicemembers defending the United States.

“Their service continues a long and noble tradition,” England said. “Muslim-Americans served in the ships of our Navy and in the U.S. Army in World War I, World War II, Korea, Vietnam, Somalia, Grenada, Panama and the 1991 Gulf War.”

Some of those veterans of past conflicts were present for the dedication. England acknowledged Army Sgt. Nazeem Abdul Hakeem who fought on the beaches of Normandy in World War II, Air Force Sgt. Gath Noor Kas-Heef, who served during the Korean War, and Army Maj. Christopher Bell who served at Cam Ron Bay in Vietnam.

Also present was Army Sgt. 1st Class Mujaheed Muhammed, who was a Korean War prisoner of war. Captured by Communist forces while assigned to the 15th Infantry’s reconnaissance patrol, he was held from 1952 through 1954.

“Your example of service continues today with the thousands of Muslim Americans in uniform,” England said, recognizing the more than 4,000 Muslims who serve. “These men and women represent the best of our nation.”

Islamification Infiltrates Houston Schools

Atlas Shrugs brings to us a poingant smelling piece from Texas, hey isn’t that the same place the Holyland Foundation Trials are being held? Islamification has reared it’s nasty head in the public school system. Now what I find amazing is that political correctness has taken a back seat this time, why because it is Islam (Religion) being taught in a Public School. Now that this been Christianity or Judism, then there would be law suites, riots and possibly even the excommunication of those that allowed such religion to be mixed with the state.

Remember those liberals who insist that there be a separation fo church from state, and that includes schools and prayers.

Those that feel creationism is not a viable study at school, somehow find teaching of Mohammad is relevant to middle school education. Wait maybe this is the diversity side of it…

Well surprise surpise, they have name even made a sigh at this one… Now this goes beyond just religious teaching, it is teaching Jihad. Yes that is right folks, your good ol school taxes are funding Jihad teachings in US Public Schools…

This borders on child abuse as far as I am concerned, yes child abuse does include mental assults… What’s next, HTV – Hamas TV coming to a school near you…

Where is the ACLU when you need them, oh yeah defending some non American’s rights…

“Houston, We Have a Problem”

Tainted teachings.  A deadly trend.

Too much time on teachings of Islam? Amanda Dyer, LODI News hat tip Bud
Parents say seventh-grade textbook at Houston Elementary inappropriate

The parents of children at Houston Elementary School plan to complain to the school board about concerns they have with a seventh-grade history textbook, which they feel pays an undue amount of attention to the teachings of Islam.

When Jim Self asked his son last week what he was learning in school, he was surprised to hear his 12-year-old boy say that he was learning about the Prophet Muhammad.

And his favorite 6 year old wife Aisha? Or the Pro Moe’s happy thoughts for the day like,“I have ordered you to kill them” 

That night Jim Self and his wife, Korina, flipped through their son’s textbook, “History Alive!: The Medieval World and Beyond,” and found at least three chapters dedicated to the Islamic faith, including an entire chapter dedicated to the Prophet Muhammad.

A chapter on the pro moe, propeller beanie be upon him?

Since then, the couple has started a campaign to remove the textbook from their child’s classroom. The book is used in classrooms throughout the district.

“I don’t think we would have an issue about it if (it wasn’t so) in-depth,” said Jim Self, who fought in Iraq as a Marine from 2003 to 2004.

Among the Selfs’ concerns about the textbook is its definition of the word “jihad,” which is described in the book as “the human struggle to overcome difficulties and do things that would be pleasing to God.”

I smell Sauduction. Saudi money is everywhere.

The Selfs said the textbook mentioned Jesus only twice, and other major religions were only given a paragraph of explanation.

One of the Selfs’ biggest concerns, though, is that such detailed explanation of Islam is a violation of the separation of church and state.

“If he was in college and he was studying world religions, fine,” Jim Self said.

The Selfs, who are Christians, worry that their reaction to the textbook will cause people to label them as religious “wackos.”

“We’re just regular people,” Jim Self said.

I’ll say. You are heros Jim.

Parents in Arizona requested that the same textbook, which was being used on a trial basis, be pulled from classrooms in Scottsdale Unified School District because they felt the book contained Islamic propaganda, according to an article in the East Valley Tribune newspaper.

Read this and weep. Betrayed by the left.  Again.
