If the largest trade deals in U.S. history have any chance of becoming law, they will require an unusual alliance between the Obama administration and pro-trade Republicans. An emerging consensus is that this union could be tested soon, with the upcoming “lame duck” session of Congress considering a procedural bill called “Trade Promotion Authority” that would smooth both negotiation and congressional consideration of U.S. free trade agreements.
For TPA to pass (now or next year), President Obama and Republicans will need to work together to overcome opposition from Democrats allied with traditional anti-trade groups, like environmentalists and labor unions. But if you ask the media and some on Capitol Hill, these strange pro-trade bedfellows face a new threat: a “Tea Party” caucus that could rebel against the Republican agenda to spite the president or scuttle FTAs. Though it makes for titillating political journalism (and a great scapegoat for a divided Democratic Party), the “Tea Party opposes trade” narrative is a myth that grows from fundamental misunderstandings of who the Tea Party is, how U.S. trade agreements work, and what “free trade” actually means.
A part of Islam that is gaining attention in the United States is Taqiiya, the intentional deceiving of those who are not of Islam. One lesser known precept is Muruna, the act of infiltration through stealth of non-Islamic nations.
This concept was brought to this country 25 years ago by Yusuf al-Qaradwai, pictured below, the same man who has been sentenced to death in Egyptian courts for a mass jailbreak in 2011. Al-Qaradwai has set aside 30 years for the complete infiltration of the United States government, to be completed by 2020.
He has been seen at the Dar Al Hijrah mosque in Falls Church Virginia with Shaker Elsayed, the Imam of the mosque and former Secretary General of the Muslim American Society, known to be a front for the Muslim Brotherhood.
