National Review and The American Spectator are marketing a cruise around Michigan and Chicago with an interesting guest of honor: Al-Qaeda funds recipient Grover Norquist, founder of the Islamic Institute, hater of Israel, and Muslim job-recruiter for the Bush White House.
Praise allah: National Review’s & American Spectator’s Guest of Honor w/ His Extremist Buddy Suhail Khan – Both Are Tied to Al-Qaeda
Norquist’s Islamic Institute was funded by Al-Qaeda organizations raided by the U.S. Customs Service in Operation Greenquest. And Norquist got the Bush Administration to hire anti-Semitic Muslim Suhail Khan as a Special Assistant to the President, despite the fact that Khan’s own father brought Al-Qaeda’s Ayman Al-Zawahiri into the United States in the ’90s to raise money at Khan’s California mosque. Khan was also connected to the Muslim boycott of Starbucks because it is headed by a Jew, Howard Schultz, who decried anti-Semitism (the nerve of him). And that’s aside from his illegal money-laundering scheme with Jack Abramoff. He got away with it because his friend, Karl Rove, blocked the Bush Justice Department from ever going after him. Everything you need to know about Grover Norquist (who converted to Islam to marry his Arab Muslim wife), is here, here, and here.
Norquist was tight with Islamic Jihad founder and convicted terrorist, Sami Al-Arian, even after it was well known that Al-Arian fundraised for and masterminded a bus-bombing in Israel in which New Jersey college student, Alisa Flatow, was murdered. After I exposed Al-Arian (and Norquist buddy and Hezbollah/Arafat-supporter Darrell Issa), Norquist–an NRA Board Member–demanded that the NRA disinvite me as a speaker to their annual convention, which they did (in writing), but then backtracked after I promised to expose what a fraud the NRA is on “The Howard Stern Show,” and that the organization isn’t really about the Second Amendment, but, rather, taking orders from Islamic terrorists. Norquist also demanded from his fellow Islamic lobbyist, Heritage Foundation chief, Edwin Feulner, Jr., that I be removed as a columnist from Townhall (then owned by Heritage), and Feulner–a recipient of mega-bucks for lobbying for Malaysia’s anti-Semitic leader–gladly obliged. Norquist also praised Barack Obama for his speech about Rev. Jeremiah Wright and declared that Obama had “closed the door” on Wright.
As I’ve noted on this site, National Review removed an article I wrote for its website, discussing the Starbucks boycott and pro-Hezbollah Congressman Darrell Issa. National Review editor Rich Lowry confirmed to me that he removed the article and banned me from National Review at the request of CAIR’s Ibrahim Hooper, Hooper’s buddy Norquist, Khan, and the Bush White House. Lowry told me that, while he agreed that the article was absolutely true, it was “a smear” (a term, he clearly doesn’t comprehend, since a smear is, by definition, false). When I repeatedly asked Lowry how it was a “smear” and why CAIR and Muslims get to decide whose work runs in National Review, he refused to answer. And, as I’ve recently told you, this schmuck Lowry said on TV that he applauds Al Sharpton and the Black Panthers for getting George Zimmerman prosecuted and that Zimmerman was completely at fault and should do time. Yup, that’s your “conservative” (if you’re a blind idiot). William F. Buckley is turning over in his grave.
And as for the American Spectator, it’s the same deal. Several American Spectator editors repeatedly attacked me for exposing Miss USA 2010 Rima Fakih’s Hezbollah family and the fact that her pageant bids were paid for by PFLP terrorist, immigration defrauder, and FBI Award revokee Imad Hamad. They also attacked me for pointing out that Lara Logan learned the true Islam when she was gang-raped by the Egyptian Muslim “democracy” protesters in Tahrir Square. This little, inconvenient fact got in the way of the magazine’s strong support for the “democracy protesters” and the removal of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak (the Spectator’s idiotic Aaron Goldstein actually quoted the New York Times pan-Muslim Marxist Nicholas Kristof to bolster their support). Among the worst of them is the wimpy, calorically-gifted American Spectator writer John Tabin, an utter moron who supported Miss Hezbollah USA (because liberal, pro-Hezbollah Lebanese sources told him so). After also initially applauding my expose of Sean Hannity’s Freedom Concert Fraud, which I documented heavily, the testicle-less Tabin did a 180 because his boss–shameless American Spectator Editor-in-Chief, R. Emmett Tyrrell, Jr., forced him to. Tyrrell, after all, needs his repeated exposure on Hannity’s radio and TV shows to promote his drivel-filled, tree-wasting books that no one reads. None of this is a surprise, though, because for years, Tyrrell ran the anti-Semitic, anti-Israel rantings of neo-Nazi Joseph Sobran, Pat Buchanan, and Taki Theodoracopulos.
So, now, they continue the tradition, with a cruise featuring Grover Norquist. And you have to wonder if they are getting any sort of pay-offs from Norquist’s Muslim friends in Al-Qaeda, HAMAS, Hezbollah, Islamic Jihad, etc. I wouldn’t put it past any of them. And don’t expect them to open the books for you.
It’s funny how all of the conservative groups, who regularly attack the left for cudding up to Muslims and Islamic terrorists, continue to cuddle up to their own version in Grover Norquist. Because they are hypocrites. Don’t expect the NRA, the Heritage Foundation, CPAC, the morons at HotAir, FOX News, Sean Vannity, Mark Levin, Sarah Palin, National Review, Mark Steyn, counterterrorism fraud Andrew McCarthy (who won’t say a word on Norquist), The American Spectator, Commentary Magazine, John Podhoretz, or anyone else to call out Norquist or cut ties with him. Rush Limbaugh won’t either, and he’s repeatedly promoted Norquist. Ditto for the various Tea Party activists, who constantly feature Norquist as a speaker at their events.
All of them will promote Norquist until he dies, and then they will ridiculously turn him into some sort of martyr. Ditto for the fraud, Michelle Malkin. Though she pretended to call out Norquist, she will never call out National Review for this dumb cruise or FOX News–which pays her six figures annually–for constantly pandering to him. National Review magazine buys and runs Fraudkin’s column, and she simply doesn’t have even an iota of courage to spare the $25 they pay each week for her regurgitated pap, after earning $2 million in selling her Hot Air site to Salem Broadcasting. It’s never enough for her.
The same goes for Fraudkin’s fellow phony, Jonah Goldberg. After naively predicting on NRO that Norquist would be indicted during the Bush Administration, he’s said nothing else. Even though he’s aware of Norquist’s misdeeds and behavior, Goldberg stands by NRO’s continued promotion of Norquist and running of his “work.” Principle is expensive, and Jonah Goldberg has books and columns to promote, as well as stupid online debates with his buddy, anti-Israel, self-hating Jew Peter Beinart, the author of a book promoting the boycott of Israel.
But if you are really a conservative–unlike all of these fakes and phonies, you will never go on this crappy cruise. And you will complain about it to National Review and the American Spectator. And you will boycott their sites, rather than give them more of the traffic and stats that they crave. Do you have the guts that they do not?
Conservative cruise offers tax debates in the sun
Ahhh. Summertime in Michigan. Boating on the Great Lakes. And tax cut discussions?
That and other serious issues will be the topics of many a debate on a seven-day cruise just after the nation’s birthday that will take guests from Detroit to Whitefish Point, Mackinac Island, Sheboygan, Wis., Saugatuck and, finally, Chicago.
The July 7-14 cruise is being marketed to readers of conservative publications the National Review and The American Spectator.
The biggest name on board will be Grover Norquist , the Americans for Tax Reform president who makes the blood boil of those on the left.
But don’t forget to bring your passports.
The voyage the brochure calls an “American summer idyll” aboard the American-flagged Yorktown with a crew of Americans also will spend two days in Canada.
Um, here’s a tip: there’s NOTHING “idyll[ic]” or “American” about hanging out with this anti-Israel, Jew-hating, enabler of Islamic terrorism and Islamic extremism in America.
In fact it’s only one thing: anti-American. And so is any publication that takes part in and promotes it and/or Grover Norquist.
