The Conservative Political Action Conference kicked off its annual conference 10 February. A complete list of speakers and the itinerary at this link: http://www.conservative.org/cpac/
This year’s conference was not without controversy. One speaker in particular, Ryan Sorba, bitched about the CPAC’s inclusion of GOProud, a conservative gay group. Sarah Palin did not attend, opting instead to have her political action committee, SarahPAC, sponsor a Diamond Reception on CPAC’s opening night.
Then there’s Grover Norquist, an Islamist masquerading as a conservative Republican activist.
Norquist aligned himself with the Muslim Brotherhood network in the U.S. that is supporting Imam Rauf (the Ground Zero Mosque) and accuses his opponents of having “Islamophobia” and having an anti-Muslim bias.
His ties to radical Islamic individuals and organizations is well documented. Islam is diametrically opposed to everything our Democratic Republic stands for. A cretin like Norquist cynically takes advantage of a CPAC forum and subversive membership in the Board of Directors of the American Conservative Union.
Norquist hosted an Islamic propaganda event titled: “You’ve Been Lied To: Why Real Conservatives are Against the War on Terror.” Its message was that “real conservatives” don’t support the war on terror because it is a creation of the “Israeli lobby.”
More background on Norquist:
This Islamic collaborator has no business in this country, let alone CPAC. Who the hell invited him?
His buddy Suhail Khan is on the board of the American Conservative Union:
……And here is a website with extensive evidence on ACU Board Member Suhail Khan’s links to the Muslim Brotherhood as a case study. It includes some excellent videos including Khan praising those Muslims who say they love death more than their adversaries love life, and stating that his father founded MSA and ISNA in the U.S. – also video of Suhail Khan accepting awards from Alamoudi and Sami Al Arian.
If the ACU supports Khan – and they do – their official position now is his: that there is no MB in the U.S. and that the DoJ Holy Land Foundation case proving that there is MB in the U.S. was somehow based on evidence that should be ignored, wrongly prosecuted and should not have been upheld in a recent judge’s opinion; that CAIR (Khan’s mother is on the board of the SF-CAIR chapter), ISNA etc are all just non-profits.
Khan is pushing for willful blindness about the MB, which will lead to recognition of the MB, and the rest of the ACU is standing by his position.
The ACU’s vetting process is fucked.
The best speeches came from John Bolton and Keynote speaker Allen West.
Bolton focused on foreign policy with a few choice words for Obama:
“Not only do we have a crisis, we don’t have a leadership in the White House that can deal with it”.
“This is a critical time where we need a president who understands the priorities of American national security and can implement them,” he said. “Not somebody who is worried about staying on top of the media spin cycle.”
He also honed in on National Intelligence Director James Clapper’s unbelievably asinine statement that the Muslim Brotherhood is “largely secular”. That, said Bolton, was the “single most foolish statement any American Intelligence official has ever made.”
CPAC saved the best for last with this great closing speech from Congressman Allen West (LTC, US ARMY RET). His dissertation covered the gamut from domestic issues like the “failed gimmick policies like cash for clunkers,” saying “We cannot continue on with excessive taxation and the overburdens of regulation and that’s why we’re going to be cutting from the EPA.”
And false charges of racism:
“We have a GOP House majority…You’ve made your voices heard and have reminded Washington D.C. that this is a representative democracy made up of the consent of the governed. You endured the relentless and hostile attacks from the liberal left such as being called racists, perhaps they should see who is standing here as your keynote speaker”.
To foreign policy:
“Peace begins with courageous leaders who are willing to identify and defy our enemies and their objectives,” he said, “Because political correctness has no place in our national security agenda.”
His comments on Egypt:
“Yesterday we witnessed a historic moment. However, let us be reminded of the lessons of revolution in Iran. History has a way of teaching you a very bad lesson if you don’t pay attention.”
The video of Congressman West’s speech in three parts:
Allen West does not mince words when it comes to defining our enemy:
Let me say this, and I don’t care being popular whatever. The first thing you got to do is to study and to understand who you’re up against. And you must realize that this is not a religion you are fighting against, you are fighting against a theo-political belief system and construct. You’re fighting something that’s been doing this thing since 622 AD, the 7th century,1388 years.
You want to dig up Charles Martel and ask him why he was fighting the Muslim army at the Battle of Tours in 732? You want to ask the Venetian fleet at La Ponto, why they were fighting a Muslim fleet in 1571? You want to ask the Germanic and Austrian knights why they were fighting at the Gate of Vienna in 1683? You want to ask people what happened at Constantinople and why today it’s called Istanbul because they lost that fight in 1453?
You need to get into the Koran, you need to understand their precepts, you need to read the Sura, you need to read the hadiths, and then you can really understand that it’s not a perversion, they are doing exactly what this book says. I want to close by saying this, and I think that we’ve said this all through this morning so far.
Until you get principled leadership in the United States of America that is willing to say that, we will continue to chase our tail, because we will never clearly define who this enemy is, and define, their goals and objectives, which is on any jihadists website, and then come up with the right and proper goals and objectives, to not only secure our republic, but to secure Western civilization.
I wonder if Norquist and the ACU paid attention.
