Allen B West & Notes from the Trail – The Hypocrisy of the Left (6-30-2010)

Notes from the Trail – The Hypocrisy of the Left

Team West Supporters,

On Monday, Ron Klein launched his latest attempt at salvaging his fledging fundraising efforts. In an email to his shrinking pool of supporters, Klein outrageously claimed that Allen West has raised $2 million from people who have either been sympathetic to BP, proposed cuts to Medicare/Social Security, or are affiliated with corporations accused of wrongdoing.

With a complicit local left wing media at his back, Ron Klein and his political hacks have the freedom to make baseless assertions that the average American who supports our campaign “would leave our beaches in ruin, end Social Security and Medicare…”

Here are the facts:

ü     Allen West has raised over $2 Million from nearly 26,000 individual contributions – including many of Klein’s former supporters.  That’s about $80 on average per donation.  Over 94% of our funds have come from individual contributions.

  • Ron Klein has received a vast majority of his contributions from PACs, unions, and other special interests. This includes at least $22,000 from trial lawyers, $10,000 from the SEIU, $30,000 from the Teamsters, and $11,000 from Fannie & Freddie.

In his desperate plea for more money to save his failing campaign, Klein tried to link Allen to BP through a March 2010 contribution from Congressman Joe Barton in Texas, and thousands of other donations from average Americans.

Here are the facts:

ü     Allen West has never taken a dime from BP, has expressed his anger with BP’s inability to control its rig, and frustration with the Federal Government’s complete and utter failure in stemming the environmental disaster occurring off of Florida’s coasts.

  • Ron Klein received $1,500 from BP, has a former Chief of Staff who is now a lobbyist for BP, has been flip flopping on his position on offshore drilling, and has done absolutely nothing in his role as a United States Congressman to pressure the Obama Administration to get on top of this crisis.

Klein – a career politician and trial lawyer – says he is for the average American, yet has voted 98% of the time with Nancy Pelosi. He says he supports hard working citizens, yet he attacks and vilifies these very people for writing modest checks to his opponent.  He says he is for Israel, yet he remains silent and actually defends the Obama Administration’s shameful browbeating of the Jewish State.  He says he respects the veteran, yet he ruthlessly attacks and repeatedly calls ‘extremist’ a man who courageously and selflessly served his country for over 2 decades, serving in 3 different combat zones.  Klein tries to link Allen to BP, yet he accepted and has refused to return $1,500 in donations from the oil giant. $1,500 may not be a lot of money to a career politician, but to the average Floridian, $1,500 is real money.

The hypocrisy is so thick you could slice it with a knife.

It has become crystal clear that a career in politics has distorted reality for Ron Klein. He is doing whatever it takes to run away from his record, and from the real problems facing South Florida.  Under Ron Klein and Nancy Pelosi’s watch, Florida’s unemployment rate has climbed to a staggering 12.3% – much higher than the national average.  When one drives down A1A or Federal Highway and sees empty house after empty house from Jupiter to Fort Lauderdale, it is a stark reminder of why Florida has the third highest foreclosure rate in the country. Ron Klein and his ultra-liberal base have set our country in a steep decline, and average Americans are fed up.

In the coming months, I can all but guarantee that you will see very little of Ron Klein as he continues to dodge his ultra liberal record. Rather, I expect a very negative campaign in which character assassination will be the method of choice for Klein and his cronies.  But as continually demonstrated by Klein, he has miscalculated the American people, thus his tactics will continue to fail.  The West Campaign will continue to run a campaign on the issues that South Floridians and all Americans care about – restoring our economy, protecting Americans, and bringing character and integrity back to Washington.

New York’s Finest in Times Square (5-20-10) video

May 20, 2010: The ubiquitous NYC Police Car Surge-Drill. It always confuses the tourists so there are lots of You Tube posts . A drill the police have done  since 9-11 but this was a particularly quiet drill and they split and went different directions (don’t usually see that). Loved the choreography….so why not set it to music : 0)

A Peaceful Protest at the Ground Zero Mosque(June 25, 2010) and more….

Video links have been repaired…sorry for any confusion.

.

On June 25, 2010 , concerned citizens held a peaceful protest  outside the Ground Zero Mosque (the  former Burlington Coat Factory). The hosts of the rally were ACT-Manhattan and the Human Rights Coalition Against Radical Islam. Everyone inside and out  was polite (except for the mosque security-thugs). The message from the citizens… build your mosque somewhere else not on sacred ground.  Finally, after their prayers, some of the Muslims spoke with the peaceful protestors. However, as the video reveals, they remained perplexed as to why this location for a mosque is offensive to those who had friends and family murdered by 19 Muslim terrorists on 9-11.

Perhaps Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf  has much bigger plans for this mega mosque at Ground Zero. Bridge-Building?  Financed by whom? Da’wah Central and conversions….

Feisal Abdul Rauf

His ‘out-reach’ to the community might  not be about  lovely community rooms and swimming pools. His  Cordoba “Community Center” and  those  da’wah bridges just might “welcome” lots more converts like Allison Poole El Gamal.  She’s the former Baptist-Muslim Convert who spoke lots of da’wah and taqiyya at the Community Board 1 meeting  on May 25 in Lower Manhattan.

.

.

Interesting that CNN just happened to cover Allison’s conversion . Her Imam was , of course, was  Imam Rauf.


Is this  our future?

What more could the Great Imam hope for, as he continues his father’s  legacy, leading the infidels to his new Islamic Center and to convert…convert…convert. Perhaps it will even grow into a mega-mosque just like the house his father built on E. 95th street

A very big mega-mosque with a very TALL minaret. Maybe we can look forward to the same at Ground Zero ?

.

But, first they’ll  have to tear down the factory with the 9-11 plane debris and most likely the remains of those murdered by the Muslim Terrorists


But, Daisy Kahn, wife of the Imam, thinks this is no ‘big deal’

No big deal, huh? Peaceful Christian missionaries are arrested on the streets of America because they are  too close to a Muslim Festival.

.

And bus ads that offer refuge to Muslims who have left Islam are challenged and removed from busses and taxis because they ‘offend’ Muslims? (Guess that’s a ‘Big Deal”) What happened to freedom of speech in America?  Pamela Geller at Atlas Shrugs would like to know.

Muslims have placed their own ads on busses saying “Why Islam”?

And ads on subways  saying, “Islam? You Deserve to Know”…

And atheists  have proclaimed on city bus ads “You don’t have to believe in God to be a moral or ethical person”. Is no one is offended ? What gives?

Once the Cordoba” Community Center” is built will there be lots more rules, rules, rules (like in Dearborn) about what we can’t do on a public street (because it might offend a Muslim? ) We must no longer remain silent.  This outrage must be stopped.  Let the TRUTH be told and say “NO to a Mosque on Ground Zero!”

A Masjid in Manhattan and the amplified call to prayers

UPDATE on a BRONX masjid and Call to Prayers amplification from 2009 (Tuesday, Nov. 17 2009)

A Bronx mosque that had sought a sound permit to amplify its morning call to prayer has quietly rescinded its application.

But the Jame Masjid mosque’s revocation of the proposal didn’t hush its neighbors, since the mosque plans to resubmit its request to play the undulating ribbon of Arabic invocation, or adhan, through a loudspeaker during four of five daily prayer times.

Residents called the plan, which was unveiled in October, an imposition on the daily lives of a diverse community. The idea of prayer booming through the streets also touched off cultural resentments.

“When in Rome do as the Romans do,” said Gerri Lamb, who lives a quarter mile from the mosque. “If you’re not in your own country, in your own culture, then you can’t force me to be a part of it”…

The comment, made during a Community Board 9 hearing on the issue (though the proposal was off the table at the moment), seemed to sum up neighborhood tensions. The local advisory board had asked residents to avoid that type of commentary while testifying, but Lamb received uproarious applause.

For those who live around the Virginia Avenue mosque, the daily din threatens their quality of life. Over the course of a year, a muezzin will have sung the call to prayer 1,460 times.

Residents frowned upon the constant disruption. They envisioned life with the incessant sound filling their living rooms. They pictured school lessons pausing as it permeated through local classrooms. They said the prayer would be equally piercing to local businesses.

The mosque has omitted the first in the daily sequence of five prayers. That first prayer is said around 5 a.m. — a predawn hour that would probably would have provoked a greater outcry.

But locals criticized the need to amplify the call at any time, especially in this technological age where alternatives like an iPhone application with daily prayer time reminders can be used. “Why do we all have to hear it?” asked Gwendolyn Brown, a 20-year resident. “That’s imposing their religious beliefs over ours.”

Some worried that an approval for this mosque’s sound system could set a precedent for other religious institutions seeking permits. “What are you going to say when the next mosque comes?” one reverend asked.

For now, local board members do not have to weigh in on the plan. The issue created so much debate at an October forum that the local advisory board rescheduled a second public sounding session for last night at IS 125 on Gleason Avenue, a much larger venue.

Nobody testified in favor of the plan.

Mohammed Ahia, a member of the Board #9, said that the mosque needed to submit plans at a later date because they could not draw enough support at the second hearing. The date coincided with mosque members performing haj, a religious pilgrimage.

Ahia, who also worships at the mosque, said that the Arabic intonation lasted about a minute, each time it is performed. “It’s a nice sound,” he said. (!!!!!)

Mosque & Church : Arrested in Dearborn, 4 Christian Missionaries at Arab Festival!(video)

IS this how Islam plans to Co-Exist in America???

“Pay Attention to What’s going on, America. Something’s Not Right Here!”

Must See Videos Documenting the Arrest of Four Christian Missionaries at the Arab Festival in Dearborn; Their Side of the Story

ANN ARBOR, MI – Must see videos. Two videos dramatically describe how Sharia law
is being enforced in Dearborn, Michigan where Dearborn Police Officers arrested four Christian
missionaries. The missionaries explain in their own words what happened.

The first video documents the actual arrest of some of the
missionaries.

Later in the video the missionaries give an account of the events leading up to their
arrest and overnight detention.

On Saturday, the missionaries attempted to peacefully distribute copies of the Gospel of
John outside the entrance to the Arab festival. Within three minutes, the Christians were
surrounded by eight Dearborn police officers and ordered to cease and desist.
These events were
also captured on video [ video #2]


The Thomas More Law Center, a public interest law firm based in Ann Arbor, Michigan,
announced today it is representing all four of the Christian missionaries.

From Acts17Apologetics — 19 June 2010 — This is a video of David Wood, Paul R, and me, Nabeel Qureshi, being arrested for being at the Arab Festival in Dearborn 2010.

It cannot be said that we were arrested for causing a disturbance, because we did not approach anyone, rather everyone with whom we spoke first approached us. It cannot be said that we were harassing anyone, because the moment anyone said “stop talking to me”, we would stop talking to them. And it cannot be said that we were spreading hate speech, because we said virtually nothing about Islam at all. On the contrary, we repeatedly affirmed our love for all Muslims. Whenever I was asked “Why would you love me?” I said “Because Jesus loves you, and he told me to love you.”

No hating, no disturbing, no harassing… It remains only to be concluded that we were arrested simply for being Christian Preachers at the Arab Festival in Dearborn.

The dhimmi politicians continue to offer  our places of worship  to the invader as the violation…the obliteration … of our churches and synagogues continues.

June 9, 2010.

PART  1  is the beginning of a two hour meeting with brief introductions from the Civic Committee and then introductions  of the three speakers from MAS

Ayman Hammous, Abdel Hafid Djamil and Mohamed Sadeia , offering peace and love Allah-style to an over-flow crowd of hundreds who attended  this  Civic Meeting in Staten Island to protest the sale of a convent/church to MAS .

.

PART One


.

PART Two. The second speaker drones on and on  with the dawa and taquiyya


.

PART 3:  Robert Spencer presents the first question to the MAS panel.  Ayman Hammous, the second  MAS speaker


.

PART 4  : The taqiyya dance continues in the Q and A with the Mas representatives and  the over-flow crowd of hundreds


.

PART 5  The taqiyya dance  went on and on in the Q and A (Add one outraged Chinese Commie -Che Lover who went on a long rant and was finally removed from the hall)


.

PART 6 – This was the last 20 minutes of the meeting.  A few people didn’t speak in to mic as well as others. Hard to understand. Left them in because the crowd reactions are just as much a part of this meeting as what was said.

.

Many objected to the idea of an Islamic house of worship in the neighborhood, admitting they are afraid of the property’s new owners, the Muslim American Society (MAS.) The community is also angry at the archdiocese because the sale was secretly brokered by a parish priest who recently resigned. The Archdiocese did not send a representative to this meeting.  Among those who asked questions of the ‘new neighbors’ was Robert Spencer.  He asked,   “Will you here and now denounce Hamas and Hezbollah as jihad terrorist organizations?” But, getting an straight answer was difficult  for Spencer if not impossible for most of those who asked questions.  Many were waiting on-line to ask questions of the MAS representative, but the frustration of the audience grew loud and impatient from the evasive ‘answers’  and then suddenly the meeting was ended.

.

Will post more of this explosive meeting as the story develops. Meanwhile, here are some pictures …
