Mecca On The Hudson?

Chuck here.

First off, in the Duh! Department:

The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) has been connected to the terrorist organization Hamas, a federal judge said in a July 2009 ruling just unsealed.
“The government has produced ample evidence to establish the associations of CAIR, ISNA, NAIT, with NAIT, the Islamic Association for Palestine, and with Hamas,” U.S. District Court Judge Jorge Solis said in the July 1, 2009, ruling.

CAIR, the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) and the North American Islamic Trust (NAIT) had protested to Solis that they were incorrectly named as unindicted co-conspirators in the 2008 trial of the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development. Among the allegations, HLF was accused of having provided more than $12 million to Hamas. After a 2007 mistrial, five former HLF officials convictedon 108 counts, ranging from money laundering to conspiring to provide material support to terrorists.

Like we hadn’t a clue…

Meanwhile, just down the hall in the Moxi Department:

The so-called ground zero mosque recently applied for a $5 million federal grant from a fund designed to rebuild lower Manhattan after 9/11, reports The Daily Beast’s John Avlon.

Developers of the controversial Park51 Islamic community center and mosque located two blocks from ground zero earlier this month applied for roughly $5 million in federal grant money set aside for the redevelopment of lower Manhattan after the attacks of September 11, according to two sources with direct knowledge of the matter.


While news of the application has not previously been made public, developer Sharif El-Gamal outlined it in closed-door meetings, according to two individuals he spoke with directly. The thirtysomething, Brooklyn-born El-Gamal is motivated more by real estate ambition—one of these sources describes him as aspiring to be the next Donald Trump—than Islamic theology or ideology.

Park51’s developers clearly have a legal right to apply for the grant. A list of Frequently Asked Questions that accompanied the application specifically states that religious organizations can make funding requests for capital projects “as long as the request is for a facility or portion of a facility that is dedicated to non-religious activities or uses.” According to an individual familiar with the Park51 application, it requests funds to cover a number of cultural, educational and community development aspects of the proposed 13-story building—but the prayer room is excluded from the grant application.

Here’s where we hunker down and see if A) the “revelations” about CAIR’s involvements in terrorism will have the effect of curtailing the government’s ass kissing on terrorism’s PR agency, and B) whether or not the same government agrees to pay for Islamofascism’s tribute to their 9/11 “victory” the Park51 Islamic “Cultural Center”.

What we’re doing now is hunkering…

It Never Stops

It never does, no matter what happens among the panoramas of our political landscape, whether the leftist controlled Democrats are in charge or the Republicans have regained control after a stark demonstration of Democrat dominance has reawakened the voting public to the BOHICA (bend over, here it comes again) effect that always follows the advent of a new majority coming from the left side of the aisle.

The “it” in question is the never ending assault from the left on the elements of our marketplace that made it, in two centuries, the most formidable in the history of the world.

From ever vigilant Red State, we have Killing the Private-Sector: What Democrats in Congress couldn’t do for union bosses, the NLRB will.

As unemployment continues to rise as a result of the Obama administration’s anti-business climate, the union-controlled National Labor Relations Board is about do what a Democrat-controlled Congress could not do—give unions the ability to kill unionize more companies.

We’ve known this was coming for a while now, but after union bosses blew a few hundred million of their members’ money trying to save what Democrats they could on Tuesday, they now know that their number one legislative agenda item, the Employee Free ANTI-Choice Act is all but dead. Union bosses don’t seem to be too upset though. Why should they? After all, they’ve already engineered Plan B and, now, they’re ready to implement it.

Union leaders on Wednesday said they would focus their efforts on regulatory agencies that govern labor and union-organizing matters, and push for job-creating programs such as new infrastructure projects.

That means unions will turn their attention toward agencies such as the Department of Labor or the National Labor Relations Board, now that there’s little hope Congress will act on legislation such as the Employee Free Choice Act, a bill that would make it easier for unions to organize without secret ballot elections.


The NLRB doesn’t have the authority to overhaul labor law, but it could make administrative changes to shorten the time between when a union files for a unionization election and when the election is held at a company, a change unions say is needed to cut down on unfair anti-union pressure tactics by employers.

Gridlock in Washington could compel unions to put more resources into organizing new members, especially low-wage laundry and restaurant workers, and those in health care where unions have had recent successes, labor experts said. They might use more campaigns to allege unfair labor practices at companies, and work more with international unions.

I suppose that in any great country, there are always going to be crooks and scumbags people like our union leaders who have no compunction about bringing down their nations’ economies at the expense of millions just to put some sleazily “earned” lucre in their own pockets, and there will always be a few treasonous politicians who support their efforts.

It’s enough to make you sick.

Can’t Complain, At Least Not Across The Board

This is my first opportunity to comment on yesterday’s elections, so:

The Democrats and their liberal, excuse me, ahem, “progressive” mentors had their collective lunch eaten for them in the House (YES!), which was to be expected by an awakening America that’s had since January, 2007 to get a belly full of having Nancy Pelosi and her ilk at the helm.

The Senate could have fared better, however, not least by the political demise of that anti-America, kommie snake in the grass piece of feces Harry Reid, but he managed to prevail (durn!) while the bad guys lost only six seats to Team America.

However, as I said, we can’t complain too badly.

To you, Barack Hussein Obama, I say: 2012 is only 2 years away, so start typing your resume.
