Grover Norquist Strikes Again!

Grover Norquist Has a Bet­ter Idea

COMMENT: Ear­li­er this month, the Tea Party/GOP Right demon­strat­ed their hypocrisy, as well as the degree of sol­i­dar­i­ty between the Islam­ic fas­cists of the Mus­lim Broth­er­hood and the Von Bolschwing/van Damm Nazi selectees that evolved from the Repub­li­can Eth­nic Out­reach orga­ni­za­tions and the Rea­gan admin­is­tra­tion.

The Jihad Watch web­site received the “Peo­ple’s Choice Award” at the 2013 Con­ser­v­a­tive Polit­i­cal Action Com­mit­tee. The award­ing of the hon­or was blocked, how­ev­er by the Tea Par­ty Repub­li­cans, who would only con­sent to give the award if the admin­is­tra­tors of the site would agree not to crit­i­cize Grover Norquist or Suhail Kahn, one of the Mus­lim Broth­er­hood-linked Jihadists who has had ready access to the Bush White House!

This as the Tea Par­ty rank and file accuse Oba­ma of being a Mus­lim and as Michelle Bach­man and oth­ers sound warn­ings about the Oba­ma admin­is­tra­tion and the Mus­lim Broth­er­hood!

Maybe they should look a lit­tle clos­er to home!

Grover Norquist and Karl Rove found­ed the Islam­ic Free Mar­ket Insti­tute, a par­al­lel net­work to the Eth­nic Out­reach orga­ni­za­tions. When fed­er­al inves­ti­ga­tors traced the 9/11 mon­ey trail, it led direct­ly to Sami al-Ari­an, the SAAR net­work, the Bank Al-Taqwa and the Repub­li­can polit­i­cal forces who sup­port­ed them.

That inves­ti­ga­tion was blocked when Talat Oth­man inter­ced­ed on behalf of the inter­ests raid­ed on 3/20/2002. Oth­man is the Pales­tin­ian-Amer­i­can who served as a direc­tor of Dubya’s Harken Ener­gy, advised both Pres­i­dents Bush on mat­ters polit­i­cal, gave a Mus­lim bene­dic­tion at the Repub­li­can con­ven­tion and served as the exec­u­tive direc­tor of the Rove/Norquist Free Mar­ket Insti­tute. 

Pales­tin­ian Islam­ic Jihad: Cham­pi­oned by Grover Norquist and Paci­fi­ca Radio’s Amy Good­man

An exam­i­na­tion of the Norquist/Rove/al-Ari­an link also demon­strates the sol­i­dar­i­ty between the so-called pro­gres­sive forces in this coun­try and the Naz­i­fied, Islam­i­cized GOP right. Sami al-Ari­an is a hero to the so-called pro­gres­sive sec­tor. His close asso­ci­a­tion with the Bush II admin­is­tra­tion, Pales­tin­ian Islam­ic Jihad and the fas­cist Al-Taqwa net­work does­n’t seem to both­er them at all.

“The Grover’s Choice Award: Jihad Watch Wins CPAC Award, Barred from Receiv­ing It”; Jihad Watch; 3/5/2013.

EXCERPT: . . . . But as time went by and no announce­ment was made of this vic­to­ry, and the vot­ing con­tin­ued despite my hav­ing been told that it offi­cial­ly end­ed last Fri­day night and that I had won, and the promised links and oth­er place­ment promised to the win­ning blog did­n’t mate­ri­al­ize, I start­ed to won­der. So I con­tact­ed the orga­niz­er who had writ­ten me telling me I won and asked him what was going on.

He told me that there was a slight prob­lem: the Tea Par­ty group, which co-spon­sored this Peo­ple’s Choice Blog Award, did­n’t want to allow me to receive it at CPAC next week unless I promised not to crit­i­cize Grover Norquist and Suhail Khan as I accept­ed the award.

I told the orga­niz­er that I could­n’t agree to that. He asked me if I had planned to talk about Grover and Suhail. I said no, I had­n’t, but I had to now.

So that’s that. The Peo­ple’s Choice Blog Award is now the Grover’s Choice Blog Award. I will not be going to CPAC and will not be receiv­ing this award.

And since I will not be allowed to receive this award at CPAC, I will talk about Norquist and Khan here.

As I wrote in this arti­cle:

Rep. Frank Wolf (R‑VA) called Norquist out for this on the House floor in Octo­ber 2011, say­ing of the anti-tax hero: “Doc­u­men­ta­tion shows that he has deep ties to sup­port­ers of Hamas and oth­er ter­ror­ist orga­ni­za­tions that are sworn ene­mies of the Unit­ed States and our ally Israel.” He point­ed out that “around the years 2000 and 2001, Mr. Norquist’s firm rep­re­sent­ed Abdu­rah­man Alam­ou­di, who was con­vict­ed two years lat­er for his role in a ter­ror­ist plot and who is present­ly serv­ing a 23-year sen­tence in fed­er­al prison.”

Norquist, report­ed Wolf, “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.”

And accord­ing to the Inves­tiga­tive Project on Ter­ror­ism:

Grover Norquist [and Karl Rove] hoped to…harness votes from the country’s grow­ing Mus­lim pop­u­la­tion by cre­at­ing the Islam­ic Free Mar­ket Insti­tute in 1998. He did so with sig­nif­i­cant finan­cial help from Abdu­rah­man Alam­ou­di, then one of America’s most influ­en­tial Mus­lim activists and head of the Amer­i­can Mus­lim Coun­cil. Today, Alam­ou­di is serv­ing a 23-year prison sen­tence after admit­ting to ille­gal trans­ac­tions with Libya and being part of a plot to assas­si­nate the then-Crown Prince of Sau­di Ara­bia. Alam­ou­di was also found to be a long time secret finan­cial couri­er for Al Qae­da. . . .

  1. A link to tell CNN to cov­er this. Though they appar­ent­ly are observ­ing the news black­out on this.

    Thanks for the link. Hon­est­ly, I prob­a­bly would­n’t have both­ered, but you made it so easy. Thanks for the reminder that we have to talk back to ‘the media’.

  3. So is it Grover-crit­i­cism or just a sign of good taste if you air­brush him out of your pho­tos? Both?
