The most terrifying danger Americans face from a second Barack Obama term isn’t the economy, which is scary enough.

The most harrowing prospect is the Obama Administration’s passivity in the face of attempts to introduce aspects of sharia law into our legal system.
Now there is strong and open evidence of the Obama administration collaborating with Islamist activists to ensure the path toward sharia law is accelerated.

Just last week, Thomas Perez, Assistant Attorney General of the Department of Justice (DOJ) Civil Rights Division, was asked this question by Trent Franks (R-AZ), a member of the House Judiciary Committee Subcommittee on the Constitution: “Will you tell us here today that this Administration’s Department of Justice will never entertain or advance a proposal that criminalizes speech against any religion?”

High Ranking DOJ Official Refuses to Affirm 1st Amendment Rights:

In a Constitution Subcommittee hearing yesterday, Congressman Trent Franks (AZ-02) questioned Assistant Attorney General, Thomas Perez, over the Administration’s commitment to 1st Amendment rights. Franks’ questions were prompted by a Daily Caller article from late last year in which Perez was quoted as warmly embracing the proposals of Islamist advocates in a meeting at George Washington University, among them a request for “a legal declaration that U.S. citizens’ criticism of Islam constitutes racial discrimination.”

Perez reportedly ended the meeting with an enthusiastic closing speech and was quoted as saying, “I sat here the entire time, taking notes…I have some very concrete thoughts … in the aftermath of this.”

In yesterday’s hearing, Chairman Franks asked Perez to affirm that the Administration would “never entertain or advance a proposal that criminalizes speech against any religion?” Perez refused.

Perez refused to answer. Four times.

And why would Franks target Perez?

Here’s why:

Last October, at George Washington University, there was a meeting between DOJ officials, including Perez, and Islamist advocates against free speech. Representatives from the Islamist side included Mohamed Magid, president of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA). The ISNA was an unindicted co-conspirator in a Hamas terror funding trial in 2008, as well as functioning as a Muslim Brotherhood Front. The leader of the Islamist attack was Sahar Aziz, an Egyptian-born American lawyer and Fellow at the Institute for Social Policy and Understanding, a Muslim advocacy group based in Michigan.

At the meeting, the Islamists lobbied for:

Cutbacks in U.S. anti-terror training

Limits on the power of terrorism investigators

Changes in agent training manuals

A legal declaration that criticism of Islam in the United States should be considered racial discrimination

Aziz said that the word “Muslim” has become “racialized” and, once American criticism of Islam was silenced, the effect would be to “take [federal] money away from local police departments and fusion centers who are spying on all of us.”

And what was the response from Perez and the DOJ officials?

Nothing.

That’s right: no objection, no defense of our first amendment right to free speech.

BIG Government

This happened 6 months ago, well before Cathy plunged Chick-fil-A into the spotlight, however this still rocks:

Rep. Alcee Hastings (D-Fla.) told The Huffington Post that the incident happened about six months ago but is now fresh in his mind given West’s recent comments in support of the fast food chain, which is run by a well-known Christian and backer of anti-gay religious organizations. Chick-fil-A president Dan Cathy last week sparked a nationwide response from gay rights activists after publicly denouncing marriage equality.

“We have a rotation in the Congressional Black Caucus where every member provides the lunch one of the weeks when we meet,” Hastings said in a Monday interview. The lunches, he said, are often quite delicious.

“We have fried chicken. And we have catfish and BBQ. We do not have watermelon, although sometimes people will have fruit. We serve a full course meal with collard greens. We have Jamaican beans and rice,” Hastings said. But West “sent Chick-fil-A with biscuits. Ok?”

“That was an ‘in your face.’ Every member of the Congressional Black Caucus that was there was offended,” he said.

Asked more specifically why lawmakers were insulted, Hastings said it was because they saw West’s actions as making a statement in support of the conservative views held by Chick-fil-A leaders. West is the only Republican member of the caucus.

“He did it deliberately,” Hastings said, explaining that he saw West’s message as, “You know, ‘That’s what I think of you all.’”

The Democratic lawmaker said West hasn’t been back to any CBC meetings since then.

ALCee has been nothing if not a progressive pain in the…On every committee he serves on he shows his racist and liberal bias. Particularly on F & F:

Rep. Alcee Hastings, D-Miramar, walked out and refused to vote. Rep. Ted Deutch, D-Boca Raton, voted against the contempt motion. Rep. Allen West, R-Plantation, and Rep. Tom Rooney, R-Tequesta, voted for it.

Now to the roots of his socialism:

Let’s begin with the fact yet another thug is serving in the house. In 1979, Alcee Hastings was appointed a federal judge for the Southern District of Florida by President Jimmy Carter. Two years later, Hastings was indicted on charges of conspiring to solicit a bribe from two defendants awaiting sentencing in his court.

* September 25, 2008 Judicial Watch: Rallying on behalf of Barack Obama, a Florida congressman impeached as a federal judge for perjury and bribery suggested that Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin is a racist anti Semite. This from a creature who is obviously prejudice.

Sep 25, 2008 The SchnittShow.com Race Baiting for Obama when Speaking to the Jewish Community:

Pot calling the kettle black:

In fact, Rep. Alcee Hastings, D-Fla., a “hate crimes” supporter, said, “This bill addresses our resolve to end violence based on prejudice and to guarantee that all Americans regardless of race, color, religion, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, or disability or all of these ‘philias’ and fetishes and ‘isms’ that were put forward need not live in fear because of who they are. I urge my colleagues to vote in favor of this rule.

Guess he didn’t mean it, being that he is one.

Washington’s “Ten Most Wanted Corrupt Politicians” JUST under Holder.

Also made NumbersUSA ’50 Worst Deserters’ list

* September 2010: Alcee Hastings has voted with the Constitution a mere 10% of the time, as rated by the Freedom Index. Alcee Hastings Record of Corruption

* Liberal, Socialist Congressmen Gone Wild

* A Florida congressman impeached as a federal judge and currently under House Ethics Committee scrutiny has earned yet another recognition for his transgressions, this time nepotism.

* He was also in hot water over a sexual scandal of his own harassing a member of his staff according to Judicial Watch.

Also See: Rep. Alcee Hastings has girlfriend on his payroll at taxpayers expense

* In November of 2010 he was the subject of a stepped-up investigation into alleged misuse of travel funds on overseas trips. The irony being he was broke and owed Millions

* Despite the fact he is blatantly corrupt he was reelected anyway Despite the fact he was impeached, he was reelected anyway.

Alcee Hastings: “All This Talk About Rules… We Make ‘Em Up As We Go Along…”

His voting record is abysmal.

The new “hate crimes” law was dubbed by critics the “Pedophile Protection Act” as it moved through Congress, because of several GOP attempts to insert language exempting pedophiles from any protection that were blocked by Democrats.

In fact, Rep. Alcee Hastings, D-Fla., a “hate crimes” supporter, said, “This bill addresses our resolve to end violence based on prejudice and to guarantee that all Americans regardless of race, color, religion, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, or disability or all of these ‘philias’ and fetishes and ‘isms’ that were put forward need not live in fear because of who they are. I urge my colleagues to vote in favor of this rule.”

So in essence he supported the “Pedophile Protection Act”.

In closing he also is up for reelection in November. Challenging him is Randall Terry who has No Party Affiliation. Anthony Dutrow looking to be a Write-In. Party or no party, or being able to spell Dutrow, one of these guys would be getting my vote if I could. ~ JP

Intelligent and inquisitive, chimpanzees have always been able to communicate with man.

But this heartbreaking video shows just how desperate this chimp is to be understood and to be let out of his cage.

The chimp is seen in the video motioning to a watching visitor to unlock the bolt on what appears to be a glass door and lift the window, so he can be free.

Tapping on the window the chimp repeatedly urges people standing on the other side of the glass to let them outside.

It links its fingers together, a signal similar to the American Sign Language representation of the word ‘gate’.

It’s been awhile since we have seen his tirades, that became legendary. Maybe he was in treatment and stopped. He does not do well in July or August. Whichever here is a bit of Pete History:

July 2010: (Stark) Says The More we Borrow the Richer we Get

Avowed Atheist Pete Stark has served long enough!

August 2010: PETE STARK:(At it AGAIN) – The Fed Gov can do most anything in this country

and here we are again in August 2012:

In the latest episode raising questions about the erratic behavior of California’s longest standing Congressman, a former California State Assembly Majority leader said Tuesday that East Bay Democratic Rep. Pete Stark erupted in an angry tirade — questioning his sanity, threatening his livelihood and even vowing to call social workers to check on his kids — after he informed Stark he would endorse his opponent in the November general election.

But the conversation quickly got ugly, as the Congressman launched into a bitter and angry diatribe. “(Stark) called me a turncoat and said, “Are you sick?” Torrico recalled. “He was yelling and yelling….he kept going and going. He asked me if I was mentally well.”

- source

WHY is he still serving as a Critter?! For California’s 13th congressional district, serving since 1973. The only surprise is he has not gotten a weapon and gone postal. For goodness sake he is past retirement age, institutionalize him.

Now to the skinny of Pete Stark’s long alliance in socialism:

Dec 12, 2007…

On Capital Hill, the House voted, yesterday, 372 to 9, to recognized the ‘importance of the Christmas tradition’ and to condemn bigotry against Christians. Those who voted AGAINST, Stark was one…

1 of 22 critters that hates Christmas

* Hon. Pete Stark IS a member of American Socialist Voter – Dem Soc of America

See page 7:

Socialism in America Far Left Democrats Setting the Policy

Honorable and dignified:

A senior citizen told Pete “don’t pee on my leg and then tell me it’s raining”, Pete’s reply: “I wouldn’t dignify you by peeing on your leg – I wouldn’t waste the urine”. Not exactly Congressional level behavior in my opinion…

* He opposed an ACORN investigation

* March 20, 2009 Judicial Watch Gets Illegal Tax Break:

A ranking member of the U.S. House of Representative’s tax-writing committee claims a Maryland home—located thousands of miles from the California district he represents—as his principal residence to get an illegal tax break.

Democrat Pete Stark, who has represented northern California in the House since 1973, lies about here he lives to qualify for an annual $3,853 tax break on a home he and his wife own in Harwood Maryland.

Is Pete Stark (D-CA) an illegitimate representative or a tax cheat?

* Made the NumbersUSA list of 50 WORST DESERTERS of JOBLESS AMERICANS

Watch Congressman Pete Stark blow up when Jan Helfeld asks him why Stark believes, “the more we owe, the wealthier we are.” Threatens to throw Jan ‘out the window’. Now what Republican could get away with that?!

* JULY 2010: Reps. Jan Schakowsky (D-IL), Lynn Woolsey (D-CA), and Pete Stark (D-CA) announced introduction of H.R. 5808, the Public Option Act . In great company hey?

* April 2010: Stark & his socialist colleagues Call for More Money for Dismantling Nuclear Weapons

* January 2010 HERE ARE THE ANTI-SEMITES:: Now surprise he and 54 other rabid liberals chose Hamas over Israel

* March 6, 2010 even the NYT said Is Often His Own Worst Enemy

* To solidify his dementia or whatever, stating Solyndra Makes Cars, Doesn’t Know He Represents Part of Silicon Valley.

* Approval seal from DSA on his being a co-sponsor with the likes of:

Emanuel Cleaver, John Conyers, Danny K. Davis, Bob Filner, Raul M. Grijalva, ichael M. Honda, Marcy Kaptur, Barbara Lee, Jim McDermott, Gregory W. Meeks, James P. Moran, Charles B. Rangel, Bobby L. Rush, Louise McIntosh Slaughter, Hilda L. Solis, Maxine Waters, and Lynn C. Woolsey.

I close with the best description of Pete from Right Stuff in June 2010. just another rabid liberal socialist who should have never been elected but now needs to be sent away. He will be up for reelection in Fort Lauderdale come November, with only another democrat challenging him. But if I lived in this district you can bet your sweet bippie I would vote for Eric Swalwell ~ JP

Founder of sect has declared himself a prophet, despite teachings of Islam

Children aged one to 17 allegedly kept in cells. Some of them may have never seen the sun

Inclusive city of Kazan shocked by allegations

Locator: Kazan is at the confluence of the Volga and Kazanka rivers in the province of Tartastan, southeast of Moscow

Russian prosecutors have brought child abuse charges against members of a reclusive Muslim sect accused of keeping some of their children in underground cells for more than 10 years.

Russia’s Vesti television reported that prosecutors in Kazan, the capital of the predominantly Muslim central province of Tatarstan, have also charged Faizrakhman Satarov, the sect’s 83-year-old founder, with negligence.

It said Satarov declared himself a prophet – a claim that contradicts the principles of Islam – and ordered some 70 of his followers to stop contact with the outside world and live in underground cells they dug under a house outside Kazan in the early 2000s.

Members of an underground sect in Russia’s Volga River province of Tatarstan province stand at the gate of a house outside the provincial capital, Kazan, on Wednesday, Aug. 8, 2012. The reclusive sect that literally went underground to stop contact with the outside world kept 27 children in dark and unheated cells, many of them for more than a decade, prosecutors said Wednesday. The children have been freed and the parents charged with child abuse.Some of the children, aged between 1 and 17, have never seen daylight, health officials said.

Vesti quotes prosecutors saying some 20 children, aged between one and 17, lived in the cells for years.

It is the eighth most populous city in Russia, and is famous for Muslims and Christians living together peacefully in the one city.

Kazan is to host the 2015 World Aquatics Championships and the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

The Great imposter trailer (Tony Curtis) by V-Shack

No friends Leonardo DiCaprio in ‘Catch me if you can’ was not the original Great Imposter…

In all, Roy Antigua had about 200 suspicious items when he was arrested this month, said James Steffens, chief of the New Port Richey Police Department.

The cache found in Antigua’s two homes and Cadillac Escalade included diplomatic license plates and dozens of fake identification cards from the Department of Homeland Security, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Department of Defense, CIA and NASA. The suspect also had access badges to hospitals around Florida, doctor and nurse scrubs, a respiratory technician badge, police blue lights and access stickers to Coast Guard bases around Florida, Steffens said.

Authorities are wondering if Antigua, 52, was a frequent guest at costume parties or if he was hatching something sinister.
