Ground Zero Mosque Denied Tax Payer Monies from LMDC

Major props go to Pamela Geller, for leading the fight against the GZ Victory Mosque.:

Islamic supremacist grifter Sharif El Gamal was denied the jizya. This is the people’s victory. Because you stood against this cultural obscenity. The LMDC knew the firestorm that would ensue if they went against the will of the overwhelming majority opposed to this 15-story middle finger to America.

Oh, oh happy day!

Downtown Nonprofits reports:

In all, the LMDC awarded 38 grants after receiving 266 applications seeking a total of $191 million, more than 10 times the amount that was available. Eligibility was limited to nonprofits or government agencies with projects below Houston Street.

One organization that applied for a grant but did not receive funding was Park51, the mosque and community center two blocks north of the World Trade Center site.

Park51’s request for funding sparked controversy among those who did not want to see an Islamic center so close to the site of the 9/11 attacks. It appears that Park51 did not meet the eligibility requirements because the organization has not yet received its nonprofit certification.

This doesn’t mean they won’t keep trying to secure funds, but at least it won’t be with tax-payer money.

There will be a 911 Freedom Rally on Sept 11 at West Broadway and Park Place to take the place of the soulless, and anodyne (no first responders or clergy) Obama/Bloomberg affair.



Video: Newt Gingrich Calls For Congressional Investigation of Gibson Guitar Raid; Republicans Invite CEO To Obama Speech

Neil Cavuto opened  the segment with the news that presidential candidate, Newt Gingrich was calling for an investigation in Congress of the Gibson Guitar raids.

Also, CEO Henry Juszkiewic, has been invited by Republicans to sit with Republicans for Obama’s jobs speech, Thursday night:

Eric Holder maintained that the raid was based on the “facts” (what facts?), the law (which wasn’t being violated), and the enforcement responsibilities they have (why don’t these enforcement responsibilities extend to Dem Guitar makers?), and denied that politics were involved (yeah, right).

Everything that corruptocrat Eric Holder’s DOJ does is politically motivated.

An investigation is in order, and the fact that Republicans have invited the CEO to possibly sit in the Speaker’s Box suggests that Republican Leaders are amenable to the idea:

Political Punch reports:

Henry Juszkiewicz, the CEO of Gibson Guitar Corp., will either sit in the House Gallery as the guest of his member of Congress, Rep. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn. (members of Congress each get to invite one guest to sit in that balcony), or he will be invited to sit in the speaker of the House’s box for the speech, Republican officials tell ABC News.

As of Wednesday afternoon, officials in House Speaker John Boehner’s office were trying to decide where he should sit.

Last month, the Nashville company was raided by federal officials for importing ebony from India that the Justice Department says was “fraudulently” labeled to evade Indian export laws. The Justice Department says the mislabeling constituted a  violation of a 2008 law requiring companies to detail information about wood they import, and to abide by the relevant laws of foreign nations.


Andrew Stiles  at The Corner: In the Speaker’s Box Tonight:

House Speaker John Boehner (R., Ohio) will host more than a dozen special quests in the House gallery during President Obama’s jobs speech to Congress this evening. According to the speaker’s office, the guests “are all employers who have run into unnecessary Washington-made barriers as they’ve tried to create jobs,” including Gibson Guitars CEO Henry Juszkiewicz.

Pure Genius: MSNBC’s Schultz Says Reason Obama’s Poll Numbers Are Down Is Because “Nobody in the White House is Talking Like James Hoffa”

Sergeant Schultz was giddy because when Union boss James Hoffa said he wanted to take out those sons of bitches in the tea party, he was “spot on!”

Schultz proceeded to make some truly absurd remarks about how there was nothing wrong with what Hoffa said because of things previously uttered by conservatives such as former Alaska governor Sarah Palin and Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann.

I guess he forgot about all the calls for civility in political discourse – including from himself! – following the tragic January shootings in Tucson.

Missing his own hypocrisy, Schultz actually told his viewers that President Obama’s poll numbers are down “because liberals in many parts of the country are very frustrated that nobody in the White House is talking like James Hoffa.”

Yeah, he really said that.

Note, he even took time to slam the Republican “young guns” ( Eric Cantor, Kevin McCarthy, Paul Ryan) because “young guns” is somehow a troublesome nickname, while glorifying Hoffa’s violent rhetoric.

You can’t make this stuff up.

Schultz brought Hoffa on via satellite to ask the burning question, “Do you think the Republicans are sons of b—hes?”

Hoffa responded, “Well, I think they are if they’re trying to take away food out of the mouth of working people.”

Well yes, that’s the thinking man’s answer. Of course middle class tea partiers (who work for a living, too) “want to take food away from the mouths of working people.” That makes perfect sense.
After listing off a litany of tea party offenses from wanting to take away public union “collective bargaining rights” (guilty!) to “basically (wanting to)take away their pensions” (make modest cuts), he declares, “that’s a BAD person!”
You can count me among the legions BAD persons and SOBs out there who aren’t down with the Obama/big labor/CPUSA agenda.
