JUST IN…

Rep. Darrell Issa wrote an article today for The Hill. In 2011, B. Todd Jones took over as head of the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) – first as Acting Director and later as Director. The Bureau was in need of new leadership in the wake of Operation Fast and Furious, and his mission was to help the agency recover from that humiliating and dangerous scandal.

Just over a year ago, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported on Operation Fearless, an undercover storefront operation that took place in Milwaukee, Wisconsin during Director Jones’ tenure. Everything about Operation Fearless went wrong: ATF agents allowed convicted felons to leave the store, Fearless Distributing, armed and dangerous. The store was burglarized and $39,000 worth of merchandise was lost — ATF had neglected to install an alarm system. In a separate incident, three weapons, including a machine gun, were stolen from an ATF vehicle. And agents hired a person with intellectual and developmental disabilities, who had an IQ in the 50s, to assist with store operations – and then arrested him for his involvement.

Three years after the death of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry, ATF management has yet to fire any employees for their role in Operation Fast and Furious. That is inexcusable. ATF promised to change its culture, implement new policies and procedures, and hold agents accountable for their actions. As the details of Operation Fearless come to light, it’s difficult to see what has changed.

Full article

~ Background Match 2014 Operation Fearless, as it was called, was a multi-city program through which ATF opened roughly 37 pawn shops and storefronts around the country, often in or near gang areas, with the purpose of attracting felons and criminals to unknowingly sell their crime guns to the government. Agents would then trace the weapons to determine their source and use forensics to tie the guns to homicides.

Problem is, some storefronts opened across from schools and churches, against policy. Agents attracted juveniles with free video games and alcohol. In one case, the agency paid two informants, one mentally deficient, to get tattoos on their neck of a squid smoking a joint to promote the store. Taxpayers later paid to remove the tattoos.

* A man found an ‘X’ next to ‘Democratic Party’ already on a voter registration form he received from Covered California, the state’s Obamacare registrar

* The lifelong Republican asked to keep his name private, but said few people would notice – but his accountant did

* Covered California is sending 4 million voter cards to people following a lawsuit from a voter-rights group

* The Washington Post has reported that the Affordable Care Act will swell Democrats’ numbers because of how most uninsured Americans vote

According to Brian Cook, who is with Medicare and Medicaid Services, all of the health exchanges are required to offer voter registration in compliance with the 1993 National Voter Registration Act. But that doesn’t mean that when healthcare enrollees receive their voter registration applications that they are automatically marked as Democrats.

Covered California had not automatically sent out voter registration cards to all of their enrollees until the middle of March. They were threatened with a lawsuit by a number of liberal pro-Obama groups which includes the ACLU, Young Invincible and the League of Women Voters.

When one La Mesa couple, that asks not to be identified, received their voter registration card from Covered California, they were shocked to find that the box indicating Democratic Party had already been selected. The husband told local media:

“I’m an old guy and I never would have noticed it, except I have an accountant that notices every dot and dash on a piece of paper as a wife. [T]here’s an awful lot of people who are going to get this that are already registered and they don’t need to. I can see that, but I can’t see putting x on the form before it’s given to me in a little bitty box that nobody’s really going to notice.”

Receiving pre-marked voter registration cards reminds me of the numerous reports of voting machines automatically converting Romney votes to Obama votes in the 2012 election. Like the gentleman from La Mesa asked; how many people will notice the small box already marked for the Democratic Party?

Oh yeah, I wonder if the reason the couple were not able to speak to anyone with the California Secretary of State’s office is because the current Secretary is Debra Bowen, a diehard Obamanite Democrat? ~ Dave Jolly

Allen West was one of the first people to condemn my opponent liberal Democrat Alan Grayson when he outrageously said “the Tea Party is the home of bigotry and discrimination in America today, just as was the KKK for an earlier generation.”

You see liberal Congressman Alan Grayson, popularly known as “America’s Worst Politician,” is desperate and is warning his closest supporters that he could lose his seat in Congress…again!

He has lost elections in 2006 and 2010…and with your continued support we can add 2014 to that list!

We know of Grayson well here at JUSTPiper. How he ever got elected again to any public office is, well, how idiot voters roll.

Meet Jorge:

In America, our origins matter less than our destination, and that is what democracy is all about. – Ronald Reagan

In 1989, inspired by his grandfather’s service in the Korean Conflict, Jorge enlisted in the United States Marine Corps Reserves. The lessons learned in the sand pits of Parris Island will remain with him for the rest of his life. In 1991, he became an active-duty member of the United States Navy, and served in operations in support of Desert Storm, where he proudly served, and was honorably discharged in 1993. – See more

We can’t let this opportunity to stop Alan Grayson slip away:

Campus Reform’s Katherine Timpf attended the National Young Feminist Leadership Conference (NYFLC) — an event which promised to be about “inclusivity” and welcoming everyone — only to be told that “conservative” women were not welcome.

Timpf attempted to ask students’ their opinions on feminism, but conference organizers made an announcement advising participants not to talk to Campus Reform because it was a “conservative” outlet.

“You guys aren’t wanted here.” Tweet This

The organizers also followed Timpf around the conference to interrupt her conversations with students to tell them the same thing.

“They’re a group that’s conservative, so what we are fighting for is not something…” one organizer told a student who was talking with Timpf, prompting the student to walk away.

Well, they didn’t do very well did they?

Shooting with casualties reported at Ft. Hood

Developing EXCLUSIVE: The FBI is searching for a recent Army recruit believed to be planning a “Fort Hood-inspired jihad against U.S. soldiers,” FoxNews.com has learned.

The alert is titled, “Planned Fort Hood-inspired Jihad against US Soldiers by Army Recruit” and was issued “to inform and protect officers who may encounter this individual or others exhibiting the same aspirations.” The source of the information contained in the alert was listed as “An FBI agent.”

According to the alert:

“On 20 March 2014, the Kansas City Division FBI became aware of an individual named BOOKER aka Muhammad Abdullah Hassan who had publicly stated his intention to commit jihad, bidding farewell to his friends and making comments indicating his jihad was imminent. BOOKER had been recruited by the US Army in Kansas City, Mo., in February 2014 and was scheduled to report for Basic Training on 7 April 2014. Kansas City Division Agents interviewed BOOKER on 20 March 2014.”

The alert, whose legitimacy was confirmed by military and law enforcement officials, stated that a man identified as Booker had told friends of his “intention to commit jihad.” Booker, who is also known as Muhammad Abdullah Hassan, was recruited by the U.S. Army in Kansas City, Mo., in February 2014 and was scheduled to report for basic training on April 7. But he was discharged last week, apparently after law enforcement authorities learned of his alleged plan.

Both the FBI and the 902d Military Intelligence Group at Fort Leavenworth are involved in the hunt.

The alert, a copy of which was obtained by FoxNews.com, was sent out by the FBI’s Kansas City Division on Friday and distributed through the U.S. Marine Corps. The portion obtained by FoxNews.com did not include Hassan’s photo or age. It was also sent to the Kansas City Police Department, which could indicate authorities believe he may have remained in the area where he was recruited./a

A local reporter was limited to a four minute interview with President Obama, during which she was required to stand up.

President Obama’s staffers informed the reporter that her interview with the President was not to exceed four minutes and that she had to conduct the interview standing up.

The reporter was told that interviewers were required to stand for the interview because the President has a tendency to become “very chatty” when doing sit down interviews. The standing requirement was put in place to ensure that the interview was limited to a brief four minutes. A staffer was said to be standing nearby with a countdown clock.

“But what was interesting–a side note–is the reason why we’re standing, I was told by one of his staffers, is because he likes to get comfortable when he’s sitting and he tends to get very chatty. And so this was another way to keep him–and us–at the four minutes that they were suggesting that we not go over.”

Said the local anchor, “Yeah, and it sounds like the pressure is on when some guy is standing behind him with a countdown clock. That’s a little ridiculous.”

attack our prophet and islam.

We have covered these conferences since 1998 being they were in our backyard of Rosemont, IL. It is how I got to know my friend Steve Emerson.

chicago-seerah

When it is they who are hate-filled and caused much turmoil in a community of Western and Devon (2701 W. Devon Ave.) in Chicago, where this group is located that is promoting this conference. This community borders an enormous Jewish community. Imagine that. An extremist islamist community surrounding a Jewish one! Shades of Israel.

This is the promo of this group:

- Remember the Danish cartoons defaming the Prophet?

- Remember anti-Islam film “Innocence of Muslims”?

These attacks are no accident. Hate groups in the U.S. have invested at least $140 million dollars to attack our Prophet and Islam.

Isn’t it time we invested in defending our Prophet?

Yep, Patriots this has been going on in our backyards since before 9/11 and continues until the end of time.

This program will raise funds to establish a Strategic Communication Center for the Muslim community, which will develop effective responses to attacks like those mentioned above, as well as to train young Muslims in media. Train muslims in?!

When: Saturday, April 19, 2014. 4:30pm CST for appetizers, registration and Asr. the program begins at 5:30 PM Sharp.

Where: Donald E. Stephens Convention Center, 9291 Bryn Mawr Ave, Rosemont, IL 60018

Speakers:

* Lord Nazir Ahmed (UK)

In April of 2012 we featured a post about him ‘ Lord Nazir Ahmed Puts Bounty on President Obama and President George Bush.’ Ahmed indicated “that he would arrange the bounty at any cost, even if he was left with the option of selling all his personal assets, including his house”

* Dr. Abdalla Idris Ali (Canada) Probably the most loved president of ISNA (1992-1997), he developed and implemented Islamic and Arabic Studies curricula for elementary and junior high students. He is considered a pioneer in the area of Islamic education in North America.

* Prof. John Esposito (DC) He speaks regularly at many conferences and Chicago University. He is billed as the most prominent scholar attacked by Muslim haters. World governments, corporations, universities, and the media consults him as a balanced non-Muslim voice on Islam. A former President of the Middle East Studies Association of North America and of the American Council for the Study of Islamic Societies, he is currently the President of the American Academy of Religion.

Modern conflicts in the Islamic world are influencing today’s academic community

* Sister Ayesha Adawiyya (NY). Founder of Women In Islam Inc. She also coordinates Islamic input for the Preservation of the Black Religious Heritage Documentation Project of the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture.

Ms. Al-Adawiya serves on numerous boards related to the interests of the global Islamic community, including the Interfaith Center of New York; KARAMAH: Muslim Women Lawyers for Human Rights; New York Jobs With Justice; Greater New York Labor-Religion Coalition; Muslim Consultative Network; The Malcolm X & Dr. Betty Shabazz Memorial Educational and Cultural Center (The Shabazz Center).

* Shk. Kifah Mustafa. Jun 23, 2010 CAIR had a presser with him announcing Imam Kifah Mustapha’s lawsuit against Illinois State Police:

To round it out they will have 3 imams:

* Imam Abdul Malik Mujahid who gave a lovely speech United National Antiwar Committee Rally, NYC., is a founder of the Muslim Peace Coalition

* Imam Ousman Drame, who gave this speech, in Naperville,IL. Jan 14th, 2011

* Imam Musa Azam, who was part of a panel Oct. 2010, ICNA Chicago at the Candidates Forum with Governor Pat Quinn

Join Sound Vision’s ground-breaking International Seerah conference for the first time in Chicago, (Just under a different name) “Stand with the Prophet in Honor and Respect” on April 19th, 2014, to be part of the solution!

Not just another conference, but a a solution-oriented message. Opportunity to help build the first of its kind Strategic Communication Center for the Muslim community in Chicago

Guide to past conferences:

* 2008 Palestinian Popular Conference

* 2012 conference in Rosemont under another name, another umbrella, same goings on

* Muslim summit Sept. 2010

* June 2010 “Fall of Capitalism & Rise of Islam.”

* Extremist Conference in Chicago & The Muslim War Council

They are in every facet of our lives. What goes on in these conferences when you speak their language, dress as they do, would astonish you. But I am sure they are not through with us by a longshot. ~JP
