Dem Rep James Moran Gives Money to Terrorist Front Group CAIR

Evidence accrues that a vote for Democrats is a vote for Islam and its terror war against Western Civilization:

A Democratic congressman has donated funds to a political group that was implicated in a criminal fund-raising operation for the jihad group, Hamas.

“Thank you Congressman James Moran for his generous personal donation to @CAIRNational at #CAIRturns20,” said a tweet from Linda Sarsour, the host at a Sept. 27 fund-raiser for the jihad-linked Council on American Islamic Relations. …

The Islamic group also gave the Democrat a “Lifetime Achievement Award” during the fundraising event, which provided CAIR with at least $350,000.

What does a congresscritter need to do to get such an award from a terrorist front group, other than give them money? Propaganda support is always appreciated:

Critics say the Democrat has repeatedly suggested that Jews are responsible for starting various wars in the Arab countries.

CAIR mostly serves to generate propaganda itself. But it has also directly raised funds for terrorists.

In 2009, a judge confirmed the Justice Department’s decision to name CAIR, its founder and [Executive Director Nihad] Awad as unindicted co-conspirators in a scheme to smuggle funds to Hamas, which is a jihadi affiliate of the Muslim Brotherhood. …

Five men in the smuggling ring were sentenced to jail in 2009, including two who were given 65-year sentences. …

Separately, five CAIR employees or employees have been jailed or deported for terror-related offenses.

Alarmingly, Moron isn’t the only Democrat on cozy terms with CAIR. As noted here some time ago, plenty of Dems have taken money from these jihadists, presumably in return for influence. Then there is the Stander With the Muslims in Chief:

In June 2012, a top White House official said administration officials have had 100s of meetings with CAIR. “There is [sic] hundreds of examples of departments and agencies that meet with CAIR on a range of issues,” George Selim told The Daily Caller, after being asked if his office refuses to meet with any Muslim groups. Selim is the White House’s director for community partnerships.

CAIR money continues to buy favor in Congress:

In May 2012, a covertly-taken photograph showed Democratic leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi standing near Awad at the top-dollar fundraiser. …

The cheapest tickets cost $5,000, and the most expensive were $30,800 per couple, according to the event invite from the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, which used the cash to fund Democratic candidates.

This may cast some light on why Democrats are willing to go along with Obama’s failed policy of siding with the rabidly anti-American Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and Libya.

Awad is the one with the creepy smile.

    Our Minnesota representative, Keith Ellison, took a $10,000 trip to Mecca, courtesy of CAIR. Democrat’s response: nothing to see here, folks.

    I’m sure it’s reciprocal. How much has CAIR given the terrorist front group the democratic party?

    Marie Harf explains: ISIL Was Too Fast For Us!
    With the dissolution of the Obama administration’s foreign policy in the Middle East and elsewhere, President Obama is talking as fast as he can. Obama set some kind of a land speed record for double-talk in his interview with Steve Kroft on 60 Minutes last night, highlighted by Obama’s passing the buck for his misunderestimation of ISIS to the Director of National Intelligence et al. That hasn’t gone down too well, in part because it conflicts with what one could learn from following the headlines over the past year or two. Empirical reality belies Obama’s buck-passing. Moreover, those who have seen the intelligence reports, such as House Intelligence Committee member Michele Bachmann, have found Obama guilty of nonfeasance at best. Michele says that Obama is not being — what’s the word? — forthcoming.

    Obama’s Pass-the-Buck Presidency
    The president has a pattern of deflecting blame and denying responsibility. With military action against ISIS underway, that’s a dangerous habit.
    In attempting to downplay the political damage from a slew of second-term controversies, President Obama has counted on the American people having a very short memory span and a healthy suspension of disbelief. The time-tested strategy for Obama: Claim he’s in the dark about his own administration’s activities, blame the mess on subordinates, and hope that with the passage of time, all will be forgotten. Harry Truman, the president isn’t. He’s more likely to pass the buck.

    His latest eyebrow-raiser came on 60 Minutes on Sunday, when the president blamed the failure to anticipate the rise of ISIS on his intelligence community for not informing him of the growing threat. “I think our head of the intelligence community, Jim Clapper, has acknowledged that I think they underestimated what had been taking place in Syria,” Obama said. Most early news reports dutifully pinned the blame on the intelligence agencies, with the president escaping any further scrutiny.

    But anyone following the news over the past year would have been better informed than the commander in chief. As NBC foreign affairs correspondent Richard Engel said on MSNBC Monday: “It’s surprising that the president said that U.S. intelligence missed this one, because it seems that U.S. intelligence was the only group that missed this one. Everyone knew that Islamic extremists were on the rise in Syria and in Iraq; it was well documented. The extremists were publicizing their activities online—they were bragging about it. Journalists, including us, were interviewing foreign fighters. This was no state secret.

    White House: Obama wasn’t passing buck with ISIS comment
    President Obama wasn’t passing the buck by saying intelligence officials underestimated the threat from the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS), the White House said Monday.

    Press secretary Josh Earnest said officials were aware of the threat posed by ISIS, but misjudged the will of the Iraqi military to fight back and how successful the terror group would be at capturing territory. He said “everybody” — from the intelligence community to the White House — made the same mistake, but that Obama was ultimately responsible.

    In other news, it’s been determined that the NYT is now RACIST!

    New York Times exposes Obama’s shameless ISIS blame-shifting
    Peter Baker and Eric Schmitt of the New York Times destroy President Obama’s attempt to shift blame to the intelligence community for his lack of focus on ISIS:

    By late last year, classified American intelligence reports painted an increasingly ominous picture of a growing threat from Sunni extremists in Syria, according to senior intelligence and military officials. Just as worrisome, they said, were reports of deteriorating readiness and morale among troops next door in Iraq.

    But the reports, they said, generated little attention in a White House consumed with multiple brush fires and reluctant to be drawn back into Iraq. “Some of us were pushing the reporting, but the White House just didn’t pay attention to it,” said a senior American intelligence official. “They were preoccupied with other crises,” the official added. “This just wasn’t a big priority.”

    What “crises” were diverting the White House’s attention late last year from the rise of terrorist force more dangerous than al Qaeda? The botched Obamacare roll-out?

    It may be true that the intelligence community failed to predict the precise speed of ISIS’s blitz through Iraq. But, as Baker and Schmitt affirm, the picture it painted for Obama was an “ominous” one. Certainly, that picture was inconsistent with Obama’s claim that ISIS is al Qaeda’s “jayvee.”

    Ft. Hood Victims to Feds: Prosecute OK Beheader as Terrorist
    The Fort Hood terror victims have released a scathing statement calling for the federal government to prosecute the Moore, Oklahoma beheader, Alton Nolen, as a terrorist.

    Showing their support for Rep. Frank Wolf’s (R-VA) letter to Attorney General Eric Holder which urges the Department of Justice to classify the beheading as terrorism, the victims say: “By ignoring the law and classifying religiously-motivated terrorism as ‘workplace violence,’…the government is playing semantic games that insult terror victims and corrode the public trust needed to combat domestic security threats.”
