Glenn Beck and Grover Norquist Face Off

Grover-Norquist-by-Gage-Skidmore

By: Brent Parrish

I was surprised and bit buoyed recently when I saw that Glenn Beck has been taking a hard look at Grover Norquist’s very questionable ties to Islamic radicals. I was even more surprised when I read that Glenn Beck would be interviewing Grover Norquist on his show tonight.

Initially, Norquist rebuffed Glenn Beck’s request for an interview, as the following Twitter exchange will attest.

Norquist-Refusal-Glenn-Beck-Tweet

But, apparently, Grover has a had a change of  heart, for whatever reason.

Here’s a slice from Beck’s interview with Norquist:

Via the The Blaze:

Grover Norquist, the president of Americans for Tax Reform, appeared on The Glenn Beck Program Thursday to defend himself against accusations that he is an “agent of influence” for radical Islamists. Norquist set up the Islamic Free Market Institute roughly 20 years ago, and through the organization, Beck said, he crossed paths with a number of controversial figures, including two now-imprisoned terrorists.

“When we set up the Islamic Free Market Institute in the mid-nineties it was because I had seen in Afghanistan and Pakistan during the end of the war against the Soviet Union, this radical strain of anti-Americanism and statism in the Muslim community from people who you would think would’ve be more supportive of the United States,” Norquist explained. “I was looking around for, how do we make the case for a reformation in Islam focused on something that I know something about, which is free market economics.”

“That sounds like an unbelievably noble goal,” Beck said. “Now here is the question that leaps to mind: if that’s my goal, gosh, how do I take a check from a guy like [Abdurahman Alamoudi]?”

Beck explained on his television program Wednesday that Norquist’s Islamic Free Market Institute accepted at least $20,000 from Abdurahman Alamoudi, who allegedly raised money for Al Qaeda and is currently serving a 23-year prison sentence on terrorism charges.

Grover Norquist is founder and president of Americans for Tax Reform. Norquist has been under some scrutiny for a while now concerning his ties to Islamic radicals. Former Asst. Sec. of Defense Frank Gaffney has been trying to alert Americans about the concerning infiltration by Islamic radicals into the American political process for several years now.

Norquist joined forces with Abdul Rahman al-Amoudi in the 90s to found the Islamic Institute, later renamed the Islamic Free Market Institute.  Norquist is also connected with Khaled Saffuri, who worked with al-Amoudi for years. Abdul Rahman al-Amoudi is currently serving 23 years in a federal prison.

Via Discover the Networks (emphasis mine):

In September 2003, British customs officials arrested Alamoudi at Heathrow Airport as he was returning from Libya with $340,000 in cash given to him by President Muammar Qadhafi to finance a plot involving two U.K.-based al Qaeda operatives intending to assassinate Saudi Crown Prince (later King) Abdullah.

Alamoudi was subsequently extradited to the United States. In October 2003, he was arrested at Dulles Airport on charges of having illegally accepted $10,700 from the Libyan mission to the United Nations.

With Alamoudi in custody, federal authorities released a transcript of a telephone conversation in which he had: lamented that no Americans had died during al Qaeda’s 1998 bombing of the U.S. Embassy in Kenya; recommended that more operations be conducted like the 1994 Hezbollah bombing of a Jewish cultural center in Buenos Aires, in which 85 people died; and clearly articulated his objective of turning America into a Muslim nation.

Alamoudi was indicted not only for his illegal dealings with Libya, but also for tax evasion and immigration fraud. He ultimately pled guilty to, and was convicted of, being a senior al Qaeda financier who had funneled at least $1 million into the coffers of that terrorist organization. He also acknowledged that he had pocketed almost $1 million for himself in the process. In October 2004, Alamoudi was sentenced to 23 years in federal prison.

During the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development (HLF) trial of 2007, which examined evidence of HLF’s fundraising on behalf of Hamas, the U.S. government released a list of approximately 300 of HLF’s “unindicted co-conspirators” and “joint venturers.” Alamoudi was named in that list. To view the names of additional noteworthy individuals and groups listed, click here.

Some of Norquist’s Islamic ties are Suhail A. Khan, David Safavian, Jamal al Barzinji, and others, including Sami al-Arian, who was sentenced to 57 months in prison on one count of conspiracy to “make or receive funds … for the benefit of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad.”

Via Human Events:

Norquist, reported [Rep. Frank Wolf (R-VA], “also associated with terror financier Sami Al-Arian, according to Mary Jacoby’s reporting in March 2003, in the St. Petersburg Times.  Al-Arian pled guilty in 2006 ‘to a charge of conspiring to provide services to the Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ), a specially designated terrorist organization, in violation of U.S. law,’ and is under house arrest, according to a Department of Justice press release.  The Palestinian Islamic Jihad’s ‘paramilitary wing—the al-Quds Brigades—has conducted numerous attacks, including large-scale suicide bombings,’ according to the National Counterterrorism Center.”

Remembering Stan Evans 4: Chalk Up Two More for Joe

By: Diana West
DianaWest.net

Blacklisted-by-History

What turned out to be one of Stan Evans’ final contributions to the the truth of the record was an article he wrote last year called “McCarthyism by the Numbers.” This “sampler,” as Stan called it, contains a table of 50 McCarthy suspects named by McCarthy, his aides, or in his committee hearings who proved to be Communists, Soviet agents or who took the Fifth Amendment when asked about such matters. In sum, this concise article and table is the quickee way to refute the Big Lie that Sen. Joseph McCarthy never spotted a single Communist or Soviet agent — or identitied, as the Learned Professors keep repeating, “only a few.”

As Stan wrote:

As is self-evident from this lineup [of 50], it’s untrue that McCarthy never spotted a single Communist or Soviet agent, or–per one variation–came up with only a handful of valid cases. He in fact tracked down a small army of such people, and the roster given here is merely a sampling of the flagrant suspects who attracted his attention.

This is most obviously so of the Fifth Amendment pleaders. Our table of 50 includes 18 McCarthy cases who refused to answer questions concerning Red connections, but these were only a fraction of the total who claimed the privilege. All told, an astonishing 100-plus McCarthy suspects would plead the Fifth before his committee (the bulk of these in the Fort Monmouth/defense-supply probe that triggered the Army-McCarthy hearings).

Also, contra the standard image, McCarthy and his staffers in the usual instance did not allege that his suspects were Communists or Soviet agents–though in some famous cases (Owen Lattimore, Annie Lee Moss) this did happen–for the simple reason that the probers didn’t then know the total story. More typically, they wielded dossiers concerning adverse security findings, membership in pro-Red groups, and so on–thereby understating the scope and nature of the problem. …

Add the fact that, in case after significant case, McCarthy suspects were linked in ever-widening circles to a host of other operatives of like nature. For example, Adler, Currie, Keeney and the egregious pro-Soviet apparatchik Robert Miller were all parts of much larger networks, each with multiple contacts in the government, press corps, and outside groups of shadowy purpose.

All told, the McCarthy cases linked together in such fashion amounted to several hundred people, constituting a massive security danger to the nation.

However, numbers per se were not the central issue. By far the most important thing about his suspects was their positioning in the governmental structure, and other posts of influence, where they could shape American policy or opinion in favor of the Communist interest. This they did on a fairly regular basis, a subject that deserves discussion in its own right.

This is where Stan’s book co-authored with Herbert Romerstein, Stalin’s Secret Agentsand my book, American Betrayal, come in.

Stan told me last year that he stopped counting when he hit 50 for purposes of the “sampler,” which easily refutes the “court history” that tells us McCarthy targeted “halpess victims” and never came up with a certifiable Communist, let alone Soviet agent.

Today, randomly, I came across two more such cases.

51) George Seldes, a “journalist spy,” who denied all (lied) in executive session before McCarthy’s committee.

52) Nathan Sussman, a longtime spy for Julius Rosenberg who admitted his “past” secret Communist activities and named other secret Communists during McCarthy hearings into Communist infiltration of Ft. Monmouth, but not his own Soviet espionage. For true devotes, it’s worthing noting that Sussman may also be added to the subset of McCarthy cases who appear in Venona (his cryptonym previously only decrypted in part).

Chalk ‘em up.

WAR Declared! Beck, Rove, Norquist, GOP [Video]

YouTube/TheUnitedWest: An all out knock down drag out media war has broken out between Glenn Beck vs. Grover Norquist and Karl Rove and the GOP. Glenn has threatened to revoke his NRA membership if Grover Norquist, a Muslim Brotherhood agent, is re-elected to the NRA board. Karl Rove, a 30 year friend and mentor to Norquist, unleashed a verbal attack on Bill O’Reilly. Beck replied, with the following, “If you want to rumble baby, c’mon,” and added, “You guy’s have the spine of a worm, the ethics of whores, and the integrity of pirates, with my apologies to worms, whores and pirates.”

Our Weasel of the Week!! — 03/26/2015

The Watcher’s Council

 

Every Tuesday, the Council nominates some of the slimiest, most despicable characters in public life for some deed of evil, cowardice or corruption they’ve performed. Then we vote to single out one particular Weasel for special mention, to whom we award the statuette of shame, our special, 100% plastic Golden Weasel. This week’s nominees were all truly slime-worthy and disgusting,but in the end the unanimous winner was … the envelope please …

 http://twt-thumbs.washtimes.com/media/image/2014/05/20/e1eb22d1ba72b813540f6a706700ee32_c0-0-5000-2914_s561x327.jpg?621767495bf2ea1daa86da37e8ed2add4ee05f29
White House Chief Of Staff And Israel Basher Denis McDonough!

JoshuaPundit: Well, yah gets yer orders and yah follows ‘em, but even cops and football players say ‘no’ sometimes. But not at the Obama White House, nossir!

McDonough’s orders were to front for the president and amplify his childish tantrum after all those millions of dollars and ACORN-style campaigning complete with Chicago-style vote buying by his favorite operatives wasn’t enough to defeat Benyamin Netanyahu in the Israeli elections.

 Obama and his friends even tried to pull the race card on Bibi because he had the temerity to tell the Israeli public what was going on, that Arab voters known to belong to factions hostile to Israel ( the Parties on the so-called Arab List) were being bussed in to vote Labor for lunch and a hundred shekels funded by foreign sources.

And to be realistic about saying that  there was no possibility now of a two-state solution with Abbas’s rejectionism and Fatah’s alliance with Hamas in the mix.

So what was McDonough’s assignment? To be President Obama’s surrogate at the far left  group J-Street’s national conference and bash Israel as part of Obama’s amen chorus, McDonough followed through like a real champ, denouncing Netanyahu, what he called ‘Israel’s 50-year occupation’ and pimped for that mythical two state solution along the indefensible pre-67 lines, including dividing Jerusalem.

And he also did a fair amount of pimping for the president’s non-existent, non-binding super dooper Iran Nukes deal and of course spent some time bashing Republicans. It all got a big standing O from the Jay Streeters, After all, why wouldn’t they? The group was formed and funded by Obama and George Soros to provide cover for the Regime’s anti-Israel stance.

I really don’t mind folks like McDonough or even our president spouting this bilge. What annoys me most is when they try to insist they’re ‘pro-Israel’ and that ‘they’re only interested in Israel ‘s security,’ that making a nukes deal with people like the Iranians is anything but appeasement and an invitation to another Holocaust.

That’s where the weaselness comes in, the outright lies and pretending.Anyone with any common sense knows that they know they’re lying.  McDonough wasn’t alone, but he did his bit for the Regime this week, and I think he ought to be commended for it.

As I’ve said before, this award condemns weaselness. Denis McDonough started on his path to this award many years ago.

He came to public life as an adviser to the far Left senator and tax cheat Tom Daschele, who was, shall we say, not exactly pro-Israel. Understandable  of course since Daschele himself was a protege’ of  vociferously anti-Israel Senator James Abourezk. Afterwards, Daschele  went to work for the radical Left wing Soros funded think tank, The Center For American Progress. Daschele hired McDonough at the CAP as a ‘senior fellow.’

McDonough actually became involved as part of Obama’s minions as a senior foreign policy adviser during the Bamster’s first term, so obviously his views and those of the president really jibed on Israel. His promotion to White House Chief of Staff isn’t exactly a foreign policy post, but no doubt McDonough was happy to help bash Israel for his boss.

Again, the weaselness comes not from whatever he believes, but from the deliberate lies, the repetition of things he has to know are untrue. And his avid willingness to do so.

Here’s your weasel, sir. Oh, the engraving on the Weasel? That’s Hebrew and we had it done especially for you. ?????? is a well known Hebrew phrase of endearment and respect, they tell me…

Well, there it is! 

Check back next Tuesday to see who next week’s nominees for Weasel of the Week are!

Make sure to tune in every Monday for the Watcher’s Forum, and  remember, every Wednesday, the Council has its weekly contest with the members nominating two posts each, one written by themselves and one written by someone from outside the group for consideration by the whole Council. The votes are cast by the Council, and the results are posted on Friday morning.

It’s a weekly magazine of some of the best stuff written in the blogosphere, and you won’t want to miss it...or any of the other fantabulous Watcher’s Council content.

And don’t forget to like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter..’cause we’re cool like that, y’know?
