Confirmed: Obama Bundler Caught Working With al-Qaeda Linked Group

Guest Post by Kristinn Taylor

Obama bundler Jodie Evans and Code Pink, the leftist group she co-leads, have been found to be working with a group whose leaders have recently been declared terrorists and al Qaeda supporters by the Treasury Department.

This is not the first time the Democratic Party allied group has been caught in bed with terrorists. As this writer has reported over the years, Code Pink works with terrorists, state sponsors of terrorists, the Democratic Party and President Barack Obama against the United States in the war on terror.

This most recent Code Pink tie to terrorists involves al Karama, a so-called human rights group. A report published this week by the Washington Free Beacon about Rep. Alan Grayson (D-FL) scheduling a meeting with a representative from the al Karama in November about the Obama administration’s use of armed drones to kill suspected terrorists prompted an examination by this writer of Code Pink’s alliance with al Karama.

Mohammad Al Ahmady, the Yemen director for Geneva-based NGO Al Karama, was expected to brief Reps. Alan Grayson (D., Fla.), Barbara Lee (D., Calif.), and Jan Schakowsky (D., Ill.) the morning of the Nov. 19, according to press release from Grayson’s office.

Ahmady, who also serves as a top official in an al Qaeda-linked Yemeni political party, did not attend because of visa issues. The State Department said it could not comment on visa matters.

Several Al Karama officials have faced terrorism allegations. Al Karama’s founder and current president Abdul Rahman Naimi was designated as a terrorist and al Qaeda supporter by the U.S. Treasury Department in December, along with the group’s Yemen representative Abdulwahab Al-Humayqani. Al Karama’s legal director, Rachid Mesli, is currently wanted for terrorism charges in Algeria.

Unreported by the Free Beacon was that the meeting was likely arranged by Code Pink, which has worked with Grayson in the past, and had hosted an anti-drone conference in Washington the previous weekend. Also unreported by the Free Beacon was Code Pink’s history of working with al Karama in Yemen.

The Free Beacon report keys off a press release by Grayson that listed the anti-drone delegation that was to meet with him, Rep. Barbara Lee (D-CA) and Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-IL). Most of the delegation that was listed on the press release was also listed as speakers at Code Pink’s anti-drone conference.

A spokesman for Grayson told the Free Beacon Mohammad al-Ahmady did not attend the meeting and noted that the terrorist designation for al-Ahmady’s group al Karama was not in place at the time the meeting was scheduled.

Last June, Code Pink traveled to Yemen and met with the father of slain al-Qaeda spiritual leader Anwar al-Awlaki. While in Yemen with Code Pink, Obama bundler Jodie Evans sought donations for families of drone victims and Yemenis held at the U.S. terrorist detention facility at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

Code Pink also worked with al Karama while in Yemen, according to report on al Karama’s website.

Yesterday, 17 June 2013, Yemeni and American activists organized a sit-in in front of the American embassy in Sanaa to protest against drone attacks in the context of American counter-terrorism policy, and to denounce the inability of the Obama administration to close the Guantanamo Bay detention facility. This campaign, launched under the slogan “Human Dignity” in April 2013 by Alkarama and other human rights organizations in Yemen, aims for the closure of Guantanamo and Bagram detention centers. Several members of Code Pink, a pacifist American organization, joined Alkarama and Hood yesterday to show their support to the families of Guantanamo detainees and pay a tribute to the victims of American airstrikes.

It is long past time the U.S. government designates Code Pink a terrorist support group for its work with terrorists, terrorist groups and state sponsors of terrorism.

It is also long past time President Obama and the Democratic Party are called to account for their ties to the al Qaeda tied group Code Pink.

504 Documented Examples of Obama’s Lies, Lawbreaking, Corruption, Cronyism, Etc.


Freedom Outpost

Corruption, Cronyism, etc., has been updated to 504 documented examples.  The update is below.

Every President, every politician, and every human being tells lies and engages in acts of hypocrisy. But Barack Obama does these things to a far greater degree than anyone else that I have ever known of. His campaign promises were so much better sounding than anyone else’s – no lobbyists in his administration, waiting five days before signing all non-emergency bills so people would have time to read them, putting health care negotiations on C-SPAN, reading every bill line by line to make sure money isn’t being wasted, prosecution of Wall St. criminals, ending raids against medical marijuana in states where it’s legal, high levels of transparency. Obama’s promises of these wonderful things sounded inspiring and sincere. They sounded so much better than the promises of any other President. So when Obama broke these promises, it felt so much worse than when other Presidents broke their promises.

EPA Changes The Borders Of Wyoming; Governor Appeals Decision

Governor Mead

Gateway Pundit

Just when you think that the EPA can’t get any more out of control, it decides to change the border of a state.

According to an article on, the EPA overturned a 1905 Federal Law by expanding the Wind River Indian Reservation:

CHEYENNE — Gov. Matt Mead’s administration is calling on the Environmental Protection Agency to freeze implementation of its recent decision that more than 1 million acres around Riverton remains legally Indian Country.

Wyoming Attorney General Peter Michael wrote Monday to national EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy and Regional Administrator Shawn McGrath in Denver asking them to reconsider the agency’s decision.

The EPA ruled last month that a 1905 federal law opening part of the Wind River Indian Reservation to settlement by non-Indians didn’t extinguish the land’s reservation status.

The EPA addressed the reservation boundary issue in its decision last month that granted an application from the Eastern Shoshone and Northern Arapaho tribes. The tribes had applied to have the reservation treated as a separate state under the federal Clean Air Act.

Wyoming’s Governor, Matt Mead, says he will fight the decision and is concerned that a Federal Agency assumes it has the power to alter a state’s boundaries:

Mead has pledged to challenge the EPA decision in federal court. The state’s request to the EPA to halt implementation of its decision could help the state if it later asks the court to block the agency’s decision while the appeal plays out.

“My deep concern is about an administrative agency of the federal government altering a state’s boundary and going against over 100 years of history and law,” Mead said. “This should be a concern to all citizens because, if the EPA can unilaterally take land away from a state, where will it stop?”

If you agree with the decision or not, the EPA does not have the power to adjust the borders of a state.  The proper places for such a decision are either in the legislative branch or the judicial branch.  To me this is an obvious abuse of a power the EPA wrongly assumes it has…
