FBI terror probe targets group funded by Obama President, Bill Ayers channeled money to ‘anti-Israel’ organization

JERUSALEM – President Obama and Weather Underground terrorist group founder William Ayers provided funds in the 1990s to an Arab group whose executive director had his home raided last week in a terror probe by the FBI.

“The [search] warrants are seeking evidence in support of an ongoing Joint Terrorism Task Force investigation into activities concerning the material support of terrorism,” Steve Warfield, spokesman for the FBI in Minneapolis, told reporters.

Warfield was referring to the FBI’s raid of seven homes Friday, including that of Hatem Abudayyeh, the executive director of the Arab American Action Network, or AAAN.

Those dumb, dangerous, ‘fundamentalist’ constitutionalists

Those dumb, dangerous, ‘fundamentalist’ constitutionalists

Mark J. Fitzgibbons

Bill Schneider of CNN political analysis fame echoes the new line of attack on Tea Partiers in his piece at Politico, Tea party: Political fundamentalists.
He writes, “The tea party is a political fundamentalist movement. Like religious fundamentalists, its members do not tolerate waverers . . . They drive out heretics . . . They punish unbelievers . . . And they believe in the total inerrancy of scripture – in this case, the U.S. Constitution as originally written in 1787.”
Dahlia Lithwick and her two Slate colleagues, Emily Bazelon and Hanna Rosen, used that theme of confluence of Biblical and constitutional fundamentalism in their online chatty posts, Decoding Christine O’Donnell. Lithwick’s post in particular raised howls of amazement at her constitutional ignorance, and from many sources.
It is no stretch to understand what liberals are trying to do. ‘Fundamentalists’ conjures up visions of snake handlers and the like. You know, all the people made fun of by smart city-folk.
Post 9/11, fundamentalism is a term associated with Al-Qaeda.
So, the new liberal meme is that the Tea Party, with its emphasis on constitutionalism, is a bunch of dumb and dangerous ‘fundamentalists.’
Mr. Schneider also repeats the left-wing meme that “tea partiers are anti-government.” Now, that’s dumb. The Constitution established our government, and created its structure, authorities and limitations. Therefore, how can we be pro-Constitution yet anti-government?
Anti-lawbreaking government? We are that.
To those of us who believe the Constitution is the law that government must follow, or amended only as provided in that governing document and not through fiat or usurpation, transparent attacks devoid of fact and logic like those of Ms. Lithwick and Mr. Schneider merely remind us how important it is that we proceed and succeed.

Obama’s claim on Selma

Obama told a Selma audience how he had been conceived by his parents because they had been inspired by the fervor following the “Bloody Sunday” voting rights demonstration in Selma, Alabama.  “There was something stirring across the country because of what happened in Selma, Alabama,” he said.  “Because some folks are willing to march across a bridge.  So they got together and Barack Obama Jr. was born.  So don’t tell me I don’t have a claim on Selma, Alabama.  Don’t tell me I’m not coming home to Selma, Alabama.”  Small detail — Obama was born in 1961 — the Selma march occurred in 1965 — four years later — oops!
