The Democratic Party of 2018 is aligning itself with the Council of American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), “an organization identified by the Justice Department as an ‘entity’ of the Muslim Brotherhood linked to pro-Hamas operations in the U.S.” Ryan Mauro of The Clarion Project has totaled up the list of Democrats likely running for their party’s presidential nomination who have endorsed this organization, an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation terror finance trial.
This is not your father’s Democratic Party.
It is a daunting line-up, including many of those regarded as frontrunners.
- Senator Kamala Harris
- Senator Cory Booker
- Senator Kirsten Gillibrand
- Senator Amy Klobuchar
- Senator Sherrod Brown
- Former A.G. Eric Holder
- Billionaire Tom Steyer
- California’s Rep. Eric Swalwell
- Maryland’s Rep. John Delaney
- Ohio’s Rep. Tim Ryan
- Former governor Bob Casey
- Former governor Martin O’Malley
- Mayor Pete Buttigieg of South Bend
- Senator Michael Bennet
- Senator Chris Murphy
- Massachusetts’s Rep. Seth Moulton
American Jews continue to support Democrats by a huge margin. They are fools.
At least there is a FARA filing.
Qatar is a hub for harboring terrorists and funding terror organizations. Recently, Gulf States with Saudi Arabia in the lead have isolated Qatar for these exact reasons.
Yesterday, this site published an article about the historical details of Qatar’s relationship with manifesting global terror.
Avenue Strategies was founded by former Trump campaign advisor Corey Lewandowski. The first clients were Citgo and Puerto Rico were among their first clients. He has since left the company, but the placeholder remaining are opportunists that apparently are dismissing the terror facts for money in their own pockets. Citgo is headquartered in Houston, Texas, but is “owned by the leftist government of Venezuela.” Citgo took out a loan from Russian state-owned oil giant, Rosneft in December 2016 that it has been unable to pay. It is under threat of a takeover by Rosneft.
At Avenue Strategies, there are names like Barry Bennett who previously worked for Ben Carson and Rick Perry. Then there is George Birnbaum who worked for Alfonse D’Amato, Charlie Crist and top leaders in Israel. Add in Ed Brookover, who worked for Ben Carson, John Boehner and Michelle Bachmann as well as leaders from various foreign countries. Bud Cummins is the last strategist who worked for Mike Huckabee’s campaign.
As you continue reading, remember, Qatar has a nasty historical connection to terror and has no plan to prosecute terrorists or to stop funding them including Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood, much less the Taliban. Testimony on the Hill regarding Qatar was hosted on July 27, 2017 and much of that testimony summary is found here.

New developments in the Middle East are focusing attention on the Muslim Brotherhood’s role in Jihadist terrorism.
These new developments are particularly important because there is legislation in Congress aimed at designating the Muslim Brotherhood as a Foreign Terrorist Organization (FTO):
There should be no controversy over the designation of the Muslim Brotherhood as a terrorist organization. The Muslim Brotherhood is in fact the forerunner of all Sunni Jihadist organizations.

Increasingly, America’s airlines are being sued by Muslim plaintiffs who claim they have faced discrimination because of their faith and/or their appearance.
Interestingly, these plaintiffs all seem to be represented by the Council on American Islamic Relations, better known as CAIR.
While CAIR purports to be a “civil rights” group, a new book by the Center for Security Policy demonstrates that it is actually a front for the designated terrorist group, Hamas. So, CAIR routinely engages in what amounts to “lawfare” and other acts of political warfare to force Americans to submit to the totalitarian code the Islamists call Sharia.
Before any airlines settle with CAIR and its clients, they should understand that doing so effectively rewards the stealthy jihadists – and can only encourage more of their supremacist aggression.

“Follow the money” – that fundamental rule for investigating organized crime – also holds true for uncovering terrorist organizations. But if the search leads to your own doorstep, immediate and decisive action must be taken.
This may be the case for the U.S. government in light of recent statements by Mahmoud Abbas, the current president of the Palestinian Authority. The 81-year-old Abbas, who has been president since 2005, is calling for unifying the Fatah party government with Hamas, which controls the Gaza Strip. President Bill Clinton’s executive order first labeled Hamas as a foreign terrorist organization in 1995.
Hamas was included among terrorist groups whose “grave acts of violence … disrupt the Middle East peace process [and] constitute an unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security, foreign policy, and economy of the United States.”
The State Department followed that up by labeling Hamas as a foreign terrorist organization in 1997. Those actions make it prohibited by law for any U.S. citizen to provide material support, including currency, to the organization. That means that if you or I gave a dollar to them or their pseudo charities, we can go to prison.

The willful blindness of the Western media and intellectual elites to Palestinian incitement and their hyper-focus on any incident they can use to portray Israel in a negative light were on abundant display last week when footage emerged of an Israel Defense Forces soldier shooting a wounded and disarmed Palestinian terrorist.
Since then, The New York Times and The Washington Post have run no fewer than 16 stories about the incident. This volume of coverage reinforces the patently mendacious Israel-is-evil “narrative” promoted by the mainstream media, the liberal elites in bed with Palestinian and jihadist killers, the demonstrably one-sided United Nations, and the sanctimonious rants of several congressional leaders who claim they are speaking out in the name of human rights.
Meanwhile, these same news outlets consistently fail to speak out against the massive and ongoing denial of human rights, suppression of basic freedoms and daily torture meted out to any Palestinian dissident by both the Palestinian Authority and Hamas. Many of these violations have been investigated and documented in horrific detail by the courageous Palestinian human rights advocate Bassam Eid.
