Video: Virginia School Board Doubles Down – Defends Having Third-Graders Sing Occupy Indoctrination Song

Via CBS 19 News:

The School Board in Charlottesville is clearly out of line, and not fooling anyone with their lame explanation for how kids came to sing a class warfare song at an assembly.

Indoctrinating other people’s children with their political messages is a tactic leftists use all the time.  Conservatives shouldn’t stand for it, and need to continue to sound the alarm on this story. This is an outrage.

video via Weasel Zippers, (watch for Zip cameo at the 44 second mark.)

Yes, they’re actually asking us to believe that the group, “Kid Pan Alley” doesn’t “shape or censor the lyrics”.  Third-grade children came up with topic, and  class warfare lyrics all by themselves.

Give me a break!

What do we know about the group, Kid Pan Alley, which the school board chair says is doing such good work? J Christian Adams reported at Big Government:

Kid Pan Alley’s infiltration into government schools goes well beyond Woodbrook Elementary in Charlottesville.  They have a presence in Payne Elementary in Lynchburg (VA), Union Elementary in Montpelier (VT), Campbell Court Elementary in Martinsville (VA), Burnley Elementary in Charlottesville (VA), Thompson Elementary in Marshall (VA), Pierce Elementary in Remington (VA), Red Hill Elementary in Virginia, Brownsville Elementary in Crozet (VA), and many many more.

Consider the results of Kid Pan Alley’s residency inside Parker Elementary Waimea, Hawaii.  They spent a week inside the school writing the song “Walk to Japan” with an apocalyptic environmental message.  “Reduce, reuse and recycle, maybe it’s time to face what we messed up, cause if we don’t save the ocean, we’ll have to walk to Japan.”

When you consider the leftist activists who introduced this garbage into Woodbrook Elementary, the agenda is even more clear.  Kid Pan Alley receives money from the William and Mary Greve Foundation.

The Greve Foundation funds many other causes at odds with American traditions, including the American Society for Muslim Advancement, which is run by a 9-11 conspiracy theorist.  The Greve Foundation is headed by John Kiser, III, author of Communist Entrepreneurs : Unknown Innovators in the Global Economy.  (From a review: “the book is of value in confronting tired stereotypes about the inherent inferiority of technology under Communism.”)  Kiser is from Sperryville, Virginia, which might explain why so many Virginia elementary schools.

You can watch Kid Pan Alley’s video “If I Change One Thing” here for another whiff of Occupy.  The kids sing the answer: “If I could change one thing, I’d change all the rules.  Freedom would be free.  I’d be my own boss no matter what the cost.”  Sort of like a mob.

The nonsense continues in the song:  “What if kids could vote, its love that sets us free, when everyone has what they needed.  There would be no more war. Yeah, that’s what kids are for.”

Once again, the lyrics the third graders at Woodbrook Elementary “wrote”, with my suggested accompanying color sheet:

Suggested caption: “I’m so happy to be part of the 99, I’m going #2″

Some people have it all
But they still don’t think they have enough
They want more money
A faster ride
They’re not content
Never satisfied
Yes — they’re the 1 percent

I used to be one of the 1 percent
I worked all the time
Never saw my family
Couldn’t make life rhyme
Then the bubble burst
It really, really hurt
I lost my money
Lost my pride
Lost my home
Now I’m part of the 99

Some people have it all
But they still don’t think they have enough
They want more money
A faster ride
They’re not content
Never satisfied
Yes — they’re the 1 percent

I used to be sad, now I’m satisfied
’Cause I really have enough
Though I lost my yacht and plane
Didn’t need that extra stuff
Could have been much worse
You don’t need to be first
’Cause I’ve got my friends
Here by my side
Don’t need it all
I’m so happy to be part of the 99

Some more coloring sheets for the kiddies at Woodbrook Elementary :

Just print these out to give the kids something fun and relevant  to color in between lessons:

Suggested caption: Because he was a blood-sucking Jew, Goldman Sachs CEO ‘s decapitated head is stuck on a pole at an “Occupy Wall Street” rally in New York

Suggested caption: Everyone dropped trou for some festive fun at the Occupy World’s Largest Gathering of Naked Santas.

Suggested caption: As members of the “1%”, police officers get what’s coming to them at #OWS protests.

Suggested caption: Zuccotti Love

Suggested caption: Exposing injustice in this sagging economy.

Suggested caption: “Time for some window-breaking fun!”

Suggested caption: Soon, #OWS may be coming to a park near you!

Suggested caption: Don’t worry, as one of the “99″, you’re safe.

#OWS Becomes A Den Of Thieves

As I’ve been saying, a whole host of left-wing pathologies are on display at the #occupy protests…

This is just one more thing you’ll never experience at a Tea Party.

The New York Post reports:

Occupy Wall Street protesters said yesterday that packs of brazen crooks within their ranks have been robbing their fellow demonstrators blind, making off with pricey cameras, phones and laptops — and even a hefty bundle of donated cash and food.

“Stealing is our biggest problem at the moment,” said Nan Terrie, 18, a kitchen and legal-team volunteer from Fort Lauderdale.

“I had my Mac stolen — that was like $5,500. Every night, something else is gone. Last night, our entire [kitchen] budget for the day was stolen, so the first thing I had to do was . . . get the message out to our supporters that we needed food!”

Crafty cat burglars sneaked into the makeshift kitchen at Zuccotti Park overnight and swiped as much as $2,500 in donated greenbacks from right under the noses of volunteers who’d fallen asleep after a long day whipping up meals for the hundreds of hungry protesters, the volunteers said.

“The worst thing is there’s people sleeping in the kitchen when they come, and they don’t even know about it! There are some really smart and sneaky thieves here,” Terrie said.

“I had umbrellas stolen, a fold-up bed I brought because my back is bad — they took that, too!”

“The people united will never be defeated” -

“This is what Democracy looks like!” -

“Tax the rich” -

“I’m taking your stuff!”

It should surprise no one that a materialistic movement that seeks to “redistribute wealth”, and is characterized by a pathological class envy would have this problem.


Or as Ace puts it:

Wow, it’s almost like some people don’t respect the concept of private personal property, and think — how does it go? — that property should be parceled out from each according to his ability to each according to his need.

In Interview Paul Krugman Says He has Regular Contact With White House, Bush WH Was “Evil and Stupid” – Obama WH “Good Guys and Smart”

Krugman laments that those good, smart guys in the Obama White House aren’t forceful enough. (after all, Obama could go over the heads of Congress and pass everything by executive fiat.)

He says he’s trying to make this Communist “progressive” moment in American history  a success.

This very special interview was conducted on September 3rd, and is brought to you courtesy of The Blaze:


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.


Left-Wing Idiots Think They Caught Charles Koch Calling Obama Saddam Hussein

Good Gad, if you take a look at  Memorandum, today, you’ll see this is a top story in the left-wing feverswamps: Exclusive Audio: Inside the Koch Brothers’ Secret Seminar. Oh my guh-ness, what are those eeevil Koch brothers up to now???

“We have Saddam Hussein,” declared billionaire industrialist Charles Koch, apparently referring to President Barack Obama as he welcomed hundreds of wealthy guests to the latest of the secret fundraising and strategy seminars he and his brother host twice a year. The 2012 elections, he warned, will be “the mother of all wars.”

Operative word here – apparently because Obama could just as apparently not be who he was referring to. The sentence doesn’t even make sense as a reference to Obama.

It probably took John from Verum Serum all of two seconds to figure this out:

The problem with Brad Friedman’s report is that Charles Koch wasn’t referencing the President here. The reference is in fact to Saddam Hussein who on January 17th, 1991 was still full of bravado:

In Baghdad, Saddam Hussein remained defiant. He said the “Mother of all Battles had begun”.

Here’s a contemporaneous printed report of the same statement. Granted, Mr. Koch remembered it as the “mother of all wars” instead of battles, but he was speaking extemporaneously.

There is one more reason I’m certain this is the correct interpretation of the remarks. If you listen carefully to the full audio at Brad’s site, you can hear a missing word which didn’t make it into his transcript. It should read:

But we’ve been talking about — we have as Saddam Hussein, this is the Mother of All Wars we’ve got…

What dolts.

Brad plans to crap out part two of his groundbreaking report on the sooper secret Koch Bros Seminar at Mother Jones, tomorrow.

(Btw, I don’t know about you, but it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy that those boys are raising big time bucks to defeat President Zero, who is projected to raise a billion dollars for his re-election campaign.)

The Koch brothers rock!


John updates with:

Mother Jones isn’t going to correct this and thus another BS progressive factoid is born.

Of course.

Obama’s Uncle Omar Is An Illegal Alien, Yet Has MA Drivers License and Federal SS#?

Obama’s uncle Omar,” Onyango Obama, (also known as, Obama Onyango), who was arrested last week in Framingham, MA, last week, was ordered to be deported in 1992, according to two federal law enforcement officials with knowledge of the case. Despite his illegal status, Uncle Obama has a valid MA drivers license and a  federal SS. via Weasel Zippers:

Onyango Obama, who is from Kenya and is known as the president’s Uncle Omar on his father’s side, had lived a quiet life in Massachusetts until last Wednesday, when police said the car he was driving darted in front of a police cruiser, nearly causing the officer to hit his car.

The federal officials, who spoke about Obama’s immigration status on condition of anonymity because they are not authorized to speak about the case, said Obama had been told to leave in 1992, but he did not go.

Obama is the second relative of the president to have defied a deportation order, reigniting debate over illegal immigration and raising questions about how a man who had lived in the United States illegally for years had managed to secure a job, a Massachusetts driver’s license, and apparently, a federal Social Security number, without being detected by US Immigration and Customs Enforcement, or ICE.

“There are hundreds of thousands of people who have been ordered deported and just ran off and nobody’s looking for them,” said Mark Krikorian, executive director of the Center for Immigration Studies, which favors strict controls on immigration.

Onyango Obama’s sister, Zeituni Onyango, also faced deportation before a Boston immigration judge granted her asylum last year. She, too, had avoided the spotlight, living in public housing in South Boston despite a deportation order. Her immigration status was leaked to the media days before her nephew’s historic election in 2008.

Here’s Sean Hannity discussing the strange story on his show, last night.

Local CBS affiliate WBZ reported that Aunt Zeituni and Uncle Omar are brother and sister.

Aunt Zeituni, allegedly also has a valid SS# issued between 2001 and 2002 in the state of Indiana, although she is not known to have ever lived in Indiana.

Zeituni and Omar’s famous nephew allegedly has a SS# issued in CT, although he’s never lived in CT.

The President has little to do with his  Massachusetts relatives.

Pretty weird, huh?

How The White House Plans To Politicize The 10th Anniversary of 9/11

Latest AP ObamaHalo pic via Weasel Zippers

According to a set of guidelines the White House is disseminating to federal agencies and overseas embassies, instead of commemorating the victims of the 9/11 attack, and honoring the heroic first responders, the focus on the 10th anniversary of that fateful day, will be on national service (like say, OFA), and Obama himself - his leadership team and his nation.

JammieWearingFool read through the lines of the NYT’s story for Human Events:

First responders aren’t even invited to participate in ceremonies this coming September 11 and instead it appears as if the primary focus of 9/11 will be paying tribute to Barack Obama​ while downplaying the terrorism threat facing us.

Members of the clergy will also not be allowed, but that was Mayor Bloomberg’s call.

So what’s left?

The White House in recent days has quietly disseminated two sets of documents. One is framed for overseas allies and their citizens and was sent to American embassies and consulates around the globe. The other includes themes for Americans here and underscores the importance of national service and what the government has done to prevent another major attack in the United States. That single-page document was issued to all federal agencies, officials said.

And even more nauseating:

After weeks of internal debate, White House officials adopted the communications documents to shape public events and official statements, and they sought to strike a delicate balance between messages designed for these two very important but very different audiences on a day when the world’s attention will be focused on President Obama, his leadership team and his nation.

Weeks of internal debate? Huh? It appears these folks have spent more time figuring out how to prop up Obama than Obama and his people have spent on their long-awaited so-called jobs plan. But what’s particularly galling is the part where they note the world’s attention will be focused on President Obama, his leadership team and his nation.

The only question is, how many me, myself and I’s will be mentioned in his speech? He may actually shatter his old record of  800 per paragraph. Oh, and how many times will he refer to his gutsy call?

Hey, and maybe if the lighting is just right -  another gorgeous halo will form around his head – and maybe if he’s able to get through the speech with a minimum of stutters and snafus,  they’ll use the speech for Obama’s Gutsy Call movie - the one set to be released in October of  2012.

You know what’s funny? (Not really).

Just last night, two notorious progressive sh*t for brains morons, Keef and Kos, were ruminating bitterly about how Republicans used 9/11 as a “political opportunity.”

The reason, according to Moulitsas, is “because they were able to take that and use it to stifle their domestic critics, push through a radical agenda, try to silence anybody who opposed him [Bush].”

Uh huh. I’ve dealt with this so many times…. It never happened.

It enraged them to no end that a Republican was the President at that traumatic and historic moment, and he rose to the occasion.

“It essentially won him another term in 2004 based on 9/11 because he wasn’t popular on any other matter. So, for Republicans, even today, 9/11 is the gift that keeps on giving. The fact that 3,000 people died is incidental to them. They don’t care about that. What was there was a political opportunity and he took it.”

You see what I mean about “left-wing projection”, people? See. what. I. mean?


Scene Stealing Squirrel and Dramatic Chipmunk Join Biden In China

After witnessing several days worth of cringe-worthy gaffes and missteps by Joe Biden in China, some comic relief may be in order.

Daniel Foster at the Corner found an interesting pic of Biden in China, and decided he had to have a caption and photoshop contest. He wasn’t taking no for an answer:

Cornerites, you must submit your captions in the comments below or e-mail me your photoshop job. You must do one or both — but under no circumstances neither — as soon as is humanly possible. I’ll update the post with selected captions, and winning photoshop(s) will go on the homepage.

Again, kindly do this immediately.

Naturally, he got submissions right away. (I’m going to have to be that firm next time I have a photoshop contest.)

Of course, this was a good excuse to dust off the scene stealing squirrel, and his furry pal, dramatic chipmunk:

Video: Obama Now and Then On Individual Mandate

It’s pretty sad that 16 months after Obama’s signature achievement, the abominable ObamaCare was passed, (against the will of the people), he is still out on the campaign trail his Magical Misery/Malaise Tour stumping for it. Sadder still that his position on the individual mandate is 180 degrees away from what it was when he was running for President, as this video, via Weasel Zippers, demonstrates:

So which Obama is right, A.) the 2008 Hope and Change Obama, or B.) the 2011 Misery and Malaise Obama?

If you chose A, the 2008 Hope and Change Obama (the one who was elected) *Ding Ding Ding!* you are correct!

ObamaCare’s defenders claim that all Americans consume health care, so Congress can use its power under the Commerce Clause of the Constitution to compel everyone to pay for their care via insurance. The purpose of that individual mandate, they insist, is to prevent “free riders” from shifting their health-care costs on to others.

Nonsense, said the judges: The administration’s arguments are a “convenient sleight of hand,” obscuring what the law truly does. In reality, they concluded, it forces healthy people to buy “fully loaded” health plans to subsidize insurance companies — which in turn are compelled to provide unlimited coverage to people with chronic illnesses and pre-existing conditions.

In short, the law converts insurers into private tax collectors, collecting mandatory premiums from the healthy to pay for politically popular changes in the insurance laws.

Drawing on copious statistics, the judges show that today’s health-care “free riders” are largely illegal immigrants (who are exempt from the mandate) and low-income Americans (who will get coverage under the law’s vast expansion of Medicaid). In other words, the mandate doesn’t prevent free riding — it enforces it.

In imposing the mandate, wrote the judges, “the Congress sought to mitigate” the costs of popular reforms like covering pre-existing conditions and removing lifetime caps on payouts “by compelling healthy Americans outside the insurance market to enter the private insurance market and buy insurers’ products.”

That is, it forces people to enter the insurance market — and forcing people to enter into commerce is different from regulating them once they voluntarily engage in it. Only the latter is constitutional.

When people forego insurance, that is “inactivity,” argued Judge Roger Vinson, who ruled for the 26 states and against the Obama administration in a lower court. Vinson said that if Congress “has the power to compel an otherwise passive individual into a commercial transaction,” there is no practical limit on Congress’ power.

Judges Hull and Dubina agreed with Vinson. But they made a further argument that may be decisive before the Supreme Court — namely, that the Obama administration contrived its Commerce Clause argument on a falsehood.

The Obama lawyers argue that health-care consumption is “universal” and “inevitable,” that there is no such thing as being “inactive” in health-care commerce, that people without insurance are actively deciding to be “free riders.”

That’s a whopper. Half the population consumes little or no health care, the federal Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality reports. Yet the law would subject them to the same insurance mandate as those who consume health care.

Stop Action Photos: Newbie Asks Obama Her First Question

CNN reporter Jessica Yellin got her first chance to ask the President a question, today.

Jessica Yellin. Congratulations, your first question here.

Thank-you, Mr. President…

No pressure. You’re going to do great. (Laughter.)

Thank you. Your administration has laid out four different dates by which you’ve said that the debt ceiling must be raised or the U.S. would face potential dire consequences. Three of those dates have come and gone and we haven’t faced financial calamity. Some of your critics have argued that these are then scare tactics to force a deal. So why should the American people believe that the August 2nd deadline is the final deadline by which a deal must be raised? And would you also spell out for us what you believe will happen if the debt ceiling is not raised by that date?

Jessica, let’s  be clear….

Zero Hedge: We’re in A Recession That Started In April

I think this is what economists call, “a double dip recession”, a rare phenomenon which has only happened three other times in our nation’s history.

Zero Hedge reports:

There may be those among the less than brainwashed lemmingerati out there who have noticed what, as we have pointed out for the past month when reporting on the various manufacturing and regional Fed indices, has been an epic collapse in the appropriate data series. As John Lohman so kindly demonstrates, the two month implosion has been beyond epic, and while certainly the biggest drop in the past decade, may also be the all time worst ever. To the point of this post: the last time we had an economic contraction of this magnitude was back in February of 2008, which was two months into the most acute recession in post-depression history. We are confident that once the groupthink wraps its head around the fact that the auto production based renaissance is not coming, and the economy officially tumbles into the commode of Ben Bernanke’s fiat dungeon, the NBER will determine (with an appropriate 12-18 month delay), that the current recession started in April of 2011.

See chart at site.

Not to worry, though, thanks to Obama’s $500 million new, Advanced Manufacturing Partnership “jumpstart”, we are going to be sitting pretty in no time.

I am so excited that the federal government is committed to “nation building here at home”, and has decided to “partner” with 11 major corporations, including Caterpiller, Corning, Dow Chemical, Ford, Honeywell, Intel, Johnson and Johnson, Allegheny Technologies, Stryker and Proctor and Gamble. And how wonderful for us all that it is based, in part, on the recommendations of Obama’s brilliant Science Czar, John Holdren:

In his Friday speech at Pittsburgh as he announced the Advanced Manufacturing Partnership, Obama also put a focus on government “investment” in “clean energy” and pointed to the government bailouts of General Motors and Chrysler as successes.

“If we want a robust, growing economy, we need a robust, growing manufacturing sector.  That’s why we told the auto industry two years ago that if they were willing to adapt, we’d stand by them.  Today, they’re profitable, they’re creating jobs, and they’re repaying taxpayers ahead of schedule,” said Obama.

“That’s why we’ve launched a partnership to retrain workers with new skills.  That’s why we’ve invested in clean energy manufacturing and new jobs building wind turbines and solar panels and advanced batteries,” he said.

The White House said the creation of the government-corporate partnership program was based on a recomendation by the President’s Council of Advisers on Science and Technology (PCAST). PCAST is co-chaired by John Holdren, head of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy.

In Human Ecology: Problems and Solutions, a 1973 book that he co-authored with Paul Ehrlich and Anne H. Ehrlich, Holdren and his co-authors wrote: “A massive campaign must be launched to restore a high-quality environment in North America and to de-develop the United States.”

“De-development means bringing our economic system (especially patterns of consumption) into line with the realities of ecology and the global resource situation,” Holdren and the Ehrlichs wrote.

“Resources must be diverted from frivolous and wasteful uses in overdeveloped countries to filling the genuine needs of underdeveloped countries,” Holdren and his co-authors wrote. “This effort must be largely political, especially with regard to our overexploitation of world resources, but the campaign should be strongly supplemented by legal and boycott action against polluters and others whose activities damage the environment. The need for de-development presents our economists with a major challenge. They must design a stable, low-consumption economy in which there is a much more equitable distribution of wealth than in the present one. Redistribution of wealth both within and among nations is absolutely essential, if a decent life is to be provided for every human being.”

In a videotaped interview with in September 2010, reporter Nicholas Ballays asked Holdren what he meant by a campaign to de-develop the United States.

“What we meant by that was stopping the kinds of activities that are destroying the environment and replacing them with activities that would produce both prosperity and environmental quality,” said Holdren. “Thanks a lot.”

Ballasy followed-up: “And how do you plan on implementing that?”

“Through the free market economy,” Holdren said.

See video of Holdren explaining his call for de-developing the United States at CNS News.

John Holdren, you may remember, co-wrote the radical enviro-wacko book, Ecoscience, with Paul and Ann Ehrlich.

Per Zombie’s  July 2009 report, we learned the book advocated:

• Women could be forced to abort their pregnancies, whether they wanted to or not;
• The population at large could be sterilized by infertility drugs intentionally put into the nation’s drinking water or in food;
• Single mothers and teen mothers should have their babies seized from them against their will and given away to other couples to raise;
• People who “contribute to social deterioration” (i.e. undesirables) “can be required by law to exercise reproductive responsibility” — in other words, be compelled to have abortions or be sterilized.
• A transnational “Planetary Regime” should assume control of the global economy and also dictate the most intimate details of Americans’ lives — using an armed international police force.

Questions About Huma Abedin

While many parts of the right-wing blogosphere are still investigating the mystery behind sock-puppets,  “Betty and Veronica” in this extended Scooby-doo episode known as, “Weinergate”, I remain intrigued by Huma Abedin, the aggrieved wife, who didn’t see what the “fuss” was all about early on, and was not only willing to ‘stand by her man’ after less than a year of marriage to the louse, but was actually going to help him fight to keep his seat. As a wife and mother who has read all the gory details about Weiner’s sordid online activities, I have found Huma’s lack of concern, curious.

Now comes some disconcerting news about Abedin’s relations.

According to reports, Huma, herself is still an observant Muslim, and her mother has established ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, which is dedicated in its own words to “eliminating and destroying Western civilization from within.”

Her brother is a fellow at the radicalized Oxford Centre for Islamic Studies (OCIS) at Oxford University in England where number of Muslim Brotherhood members sit on the board.

FrontPage Magazine has been ringing  alarm bells about her family’s connections to this insidious Islamic organization.

Ms. Abedin’s mother, Saleha Mahmoud Abdeen, is reportedly part of a special woman’s unit known as the Muslim Sisterhood or the International Women’s Organization (IWO) which, according to a counter-terrorism report obtained by the Terrorism Committee of the National Association of Chiefs of Police, operates within the Brotherhood in Egypt and possibly other Arab nations as well. The Egyptian newspaper Al-Dostor confirms that the Sisterhood includes 63 international members in 16 different countries.

The group is being portrayed by Western media in a benign fashion, as noted in Der Spiegel and on its Facebook page. But a report by the Egyptian opposition newspaper Al-Liwa Al-Arabi paints a far more ominous picture. It reveals that these women, who are “the wives of some of the highest-ranking leaders in the Muslim Brotherhood” are being recruited to:

[S]muggle secret documents for the members since women go undetected by security surveillance…to spread the Brotherhood’s ideology by infiltrating universities, schools and homes…to lay the plans for the Sisterhood to work at the state level…[and]…to fulfill the interests of the Brotherhood and also to benefit from international women’s conferences and unify all efforts to benefit the Brotherhood globally.

Furthermore, the Sisterhood’s mission includes:

[O]rganiz[ing] projects which will penetrate its prohibited ideology into the decision making in the West and in an indirect way under the guise of “general needs of women”…through the university and the state capitals and institutions and is done in accordance to the project Al-Islam Huwa Al-Hal (Islam is the solution).

The newspaper then lists the names of the women who belong to the organization on a country-by-country basis. There are a dozen members of the Sisterhood from Saudi Arabia. Saleha Mahmoud Abdeen (Abedin) is one of them.


It has also been revealed in the Arab media that Huma Abedin’s brother Hassan is a fellow at the Oxford Centre for Islamic Studies (OCIS) at Oxford University in England. A number of Muslim Brotherhood members sit on the board, including Qatari cleric Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi, who has incited violence against Jews and Israel on numerous occasions.


Hassan Abedin himself has expressed an interest in spreading Islam in the West, meeting with billionaire Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal. Alwaleed is one of the largest shareholders in both Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp and Citigroup. He is also the same prince Alwaleed whose $10 million dollar check for post 9/11 disaster relief was rejectedby then-NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani when the prince suggested U.S. policies in the Middle East contributed to the attacks.


Which brings us to Anthony Weiner’s wife, Huma Abedin, who is Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s deputy chief of staff. Ms. Abedin was born in Kalamazoo, MI, but moved to Jeddah, Saudi Arabia at the age of 2, before returning to the United States 16 years later to attend college. A detailed report from 2007 shows that the aforementioned Abdullah Omar Naseef was instrumental in the Abedin family’s move around 1977 — the same year that the Muslim Sisterhood was established. Huma Abedin has been working for Mrs. Clinton since 1996. Between that job and being married  to a Congressman — in a ceremony officiated by Bill Clinton — Ms. Abedin is privy to sensitive and secret information. Walid Shoebat explains the significance: “Huma Abedin is a practicing Muslim and is still well-connected to her family. She also has access to highly sensitive State secrets–admitted by Hillary herself–as well as significant influence in the Obama administration.”

This brings us to a curious sidebar: how it is possible for a “practicing Muslim” woman to be married to a Jewish American? Islamic scholarship and Sharia law forbid Muslims from marrying non-believers. Mr. Shoebat translated the Al-Marsid newspaper, which reported on the Weiner/Abedin marriage specifically:

Dr. Anwar Shoeb of the faculty of Islamic law in Kuwait declared that the marriage between Anthony Weiner and Huma Abedin is null and void, considering it adultery as confirmed in the Sharia position, prohibiting the marriage of a Muslim woman to a non-Muslim, regardless of whether he is a Jew or a Christian. In this case, he assured the invalidity of the marriage certificate between them.

Yet far more importantly, how is it that Huma Abedin’s mother’s and brother’s associations with the Muslim Brotherhood, direct and indirect respectively, have remained beyond scrutiny? As for Ms. Abedin herself, it strains credulity to assume that she is unaware of those associations, just as it is impossible that Mrs. Clinton doesn’t know. NPR reported that Mrs. Clinton visited Dar al-Hekma college last Tuesday, where Saleha Mahmoud Abdeen is a vice dean and the school’s co-founder.


So, we essentially have a parent who is a member of the Muslim Sisterhood, and a daughter who holds an “important and sensitive position” in one of the highest echelons of the federal government. In this context, would it really be that out of line to suggest that the real scandal in the Weiner family has less to do with Anthony, and far more to do with his wife Huma and her apparent enabler, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton?

Jamie Glazov interviewed Jihad Watch’s Robert Spencer about the Weiners’ strange marriage.

Frontpage: Robert Spencer, welcome to Frontpage Interview.

I would like to talk to you today about Anthony Weiner’s marriage to his Muslim Brotherhood wife, Huma Abedin.

How is it exactly that a Muslim woman connected to the Muslim Brotherhood is married to a Jewish man? Something is not fitting here, right?

Spencer: Jamie, Islamic law prohibits a Muslim woman from marrying a non-Muslim man. A Muslim man may marry a non-Muslim woman, but not the other way around. This is yet another manifestation of Islamic supremacism: the idea is that a wife will become a member of her husband’s household, and the children will follow the religion of the father. Thus, Muslim men marrying non-Muslim women ultimately enriches the Islamic community, while the non-Muslim community must forever be made to diminish.


FP: This all seems very strange. What do you personally think is going on?

Spencer: Either Weiner converted to Islam to marry Abedin, and a Muslim was officiating at the ceremony along with Clinton, or the marriage is a sham and Abedin, at very least, is fully aware of that — and probably the others are also. I don’t see any other possibilities.

FP: Sorry, I am a bit confused about the Bill Clinton angle. Isn’t this a bit of a bizarre person to ask to officiate your wedding? One would think that in getting married, you have things like faithfulness and loyalty on your mind, no?

Spencer: Yes, Bill Clinton is a strange choice, indeed — unless the whole point of the union had to do more with the Clinton connection than with faithfulness and loyalty.

FP: According to Islamic Law, Huma Abedin could be killed, right? If the whole thing is not a charade and a trick, it is a bit curious that her family, who are Muslim Brotherhood and Muslim Sisterhood operatives, have allowed this and not punished her, no?

Spencer: Yes, Jamie. If the marriage is not a sham, it is exceedingly strange that Huma Abedin’s mother and other Muslim Brotherhood connections would have no problem with it. She is, of course, a high profile individual in the United States, and thus is in a very different situation from that of a woman in Saudi Arabia who might enter into a relationship with a non-Muslim man. In Saudi Arabia, such a woman would almost certainly be murdered…

Is Abedin actually being deceptive in her marriage to Weiner to follow Muslim Brotherhood instructions and to infiltrate the U.S. government? Or has Weiner converted to Islam? If she’s an observant Muslim, what are the other possibilities?

It is all very strange and disconcerting.

Video: WeinerGate Press Conference

I was waiting for a video to appear on YouTube that included the question and answer period that followed the weeping mea culpa. It’s his shifty answers that tell you what you need to know , not his pitiful blubbering over the fact that his lies are no longer credible so now he has to face the music:

I live blogged the presser, here.

Michelle Malkin’s take, here.

Earlier, Andrew Breitbart had boldly crashed the press conference:

Did anyone else notice the deafening silence when Breitbart challenged the media to come up with one example of when he had lied?

Will the “Reality-Based” bloggers who had accused Breitbart of being behind the Weinergate “hacking” , apologize, now that Breitbart has been fully vindicated?

Not a chance: Charles Johnson: I Won’t Apologize to Breitbart.

This one here just keeps on digging.

This Kos Kiddie is swearing up a storm because reporters asked if Weiner would apologize to Breibart. How dare they!  He then desperately tries to change the subject by mentioning Paul Ryan and Sarah Palin in totally unrelated updates.


Just for lulz, via Ace:

A hoaxster hacked into Daily Kos and did a perfect, spot-on impersonation of a Kos Kiddie covering the Weiner press conference: NEW DETAILS: Weiner’s Press Conference was FAKE!!

So how do I know today’s press conference was a hoax?  There are ten reasons:

1) Today’s press conference was supposedly held at a Sheraton hotel in New York City.   Well, I went to websites various New York area Sheratons this morning.  Not one of them indicated that Rep. Weiner was going to give a press conference there this afternoon.  Not a ONE.

2) Anthony Weiner does not look like that.   Go to his website – he has more hair and his complexion is not that dark.   Also, having heard him speak many times, I know he does not talk like the guy in the press conference.  He’s a lot more combative, louder, and funnier.

3) YFrog.

4) Last week, Anthony Weiner said he could not say with “certaintude” that the photo was his.  Many people here rightly assumed that he knew the photo was not his, but couldn’t say so, because the FBI was involved.   Because as you know, if you’ve asked the police to investigate something, that last thing you would want to do is proclaim your innocence.  They hate that.   Anyhow, the Feds surely would have known that Weiner making a statement would have compromised their whole investigation.    And Andrew Breitbart, knowing this, had a press conference with a fake Weiner – so as to keep the FBI off his scent.

5) Who does this help?  Clarence Thomas, Dana Loesch, Dana Bash, and some guy named Wolfe.   Think about it.  Add it up.

6) Normally, during press conferences of this nature, the spouse of the so-called apologetic Congressman is in attendance.   But not this time.   Why not?  Obviously they couldn’t find a lookalike for her.

7) Don’t you think he would have apologized using Tweet Deck?

8) During the press conference, the shadow behind him didn’t always match the image of the person pretending to be Congressman Weiner.

9) I’ve created better fake press conferences using only iMovie, a couple of Apps on my EVO, and a cardboard cutout.

10) Anthony Weiner would never do anything like this.


An excellent essay from Zombie on the the liberal use of the hypocrisy defense: Why the Hypocrisy Defense is political suicide for liberalism

Consider these two statements from two different potential husbands:

“I know I promised to stop drinking forever, honey, but I fell off the wagon again; please forgive me, and I’ll really really try to stay sober from now on, but no guarantees.”


“I’m a tertiary alcoholic, a stone-cold drunk; always have been, always will be. You’re not likely to ever see me sober. Take it or leave it.”

If you had to choose, which would you marry?

Obviously, neither is very appealing, but the liberal stance is that the second potential husband is preferable, because at least he’s honest. The conservative stance is: The first potential husband is preferable, because at least he’s trying.

Within the parameters of this “Hypocrisy Defense”…Which do you think the general public prefers: An ideology that at least tries to champion a moral code, but whose adherents sometimes fail to live up to it; or an ideology that by its own definition is inherently immoral and whose adherents don’t even have a moral code to violate?
