TEA PARTY FRAUD: Seeking Muslim Votes, Tea Party Star Wastes Tax $s on Phony “Investigation”

By Debbie Schlussel

Mike Cox, a prominent Tea Party figure and candidate for Michigan Governor, is wasting tens of thousands of tax dollars on a witch hunt to please extremist Muslims.  Cox was a featured speaker and embraced honored guest at each of several Tea Party Express rallies all throughout Michigan over the weekend.


Tea Party Star Mike Cox Speaking @ Pro-HAMAS/Pro-Hezbollah ADC Banquet


Mike Cox Speaking @ Tea Party Event, Saturday

And you ask me why I don’t like the Tea Parties.  Answer:  Because people like Mike Cox are prominent speakers at these events, to the gushing applause of idiots who want to replace corrupt Democrats with more corrupt Republicans, who pander to Islamic terrorism supporters and other assorted cretins.  Why did the Tea Party Express invite this sleazebag and tax money waster to headline its events?  Ask the clueless Melanie Morgan, one of the people heading up the Tea Party Express (melanie@melaniemorgan.com, radiowest@comcast.net).

Several months ago, I told you about the FBI raid on a warehouse and the subsequent arrest and federal indictment of several mostly Black Muslims.  The whole operation was largely trumped up by lazy politically incorrect FBI brass who don’t want to go after the real, dangerous threat of Muslim Arabs in the Detroit area financing Hezbollah and–to some extent–HAMAS.

So, instead, the FBI rented the warehouse, infiltrated a Black mosque, and convinced the mosque’s Imam and his congregants to sell what they thought was stolen merchandise.  Yes, these were common thugs prone to crime, but they were not terrorists.  And, clearly, they were used by the FBI to protect its politically correct butt-kissing of the real extremist Muslim threat in Michigan.  And the ignorant public is fooled, thinking the FBI is going after Islamic terrorists, instead of some relatively harmless, though hateful, Black guys.

Still, during the raid, the imam, Luqman Ameen Abdullah, a common criminal, pulled a gun on FBI agents, and they shot him.  He died.  The agents were defending themselves, and their behavior was completely justified.  But the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) needs something to whine about, so they are making a big deal out of it, demanding an “investigation” (translation:  a witch hunt).

And now, they’ve gotten one of their biggest panderers–Michigan Republican Attorney General and candidate for Governor Mike Cox–to waste tax dollars investigating FBI agents who were doing their job and engaged in legitimate, textbook self-defense.

Cox appointed a special prosecutor to conduct a witch hunt against the agents.  And he gave the guy, lawyer Doug Baker, a staff, state resources, and a budget.  Just how much?  Well, he’s not saying, and we don’t know.  But, while Michigan taxpayers and residents are hurting worse than in any state in the Union, Cox is wasting their tax money to get Muslim votes.  And it’s costly grandstanding with no teeth.  As a state official, Cox has no jurisdiction over the FBI, a federal agency, nor do he and his tax-funded special prosecutor have subpoena power over FBI documents and records.  It’s a complete fraud and an absurd, tax-paid extension of his shameless campaign for Governor. Call him the CAIR Republican.

Yes, it’s disgusting.  But, sadly, par for the course of many Republicans these days, not just liberal Democrats.

I’ve told you about Cox, a corrupt, sleazy politician and former ally of deposed, convicted former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick.   Both of them came from the same Democratic machine, even if Cox has an “R” after his name.

And as I’ve told you repeatedly on this site, throughout his career Cox has consistently been in the back pocket of the most extremist Muslims in Michigan to the point of utter corruption.  Cox single-handedly and deliberately poisoned a federal investigation into a pervasive Muslim Medicaid fraud ring, comprised of pregnant illegal alien Muslims who ripped off Michigan and American taxpayers to the tune of billions, by getting Medicaid to cover the births of their children here, and then getting U.S. citizenship for those anchor babies.  Cox deliberately waited for the few women he knew of involved in the scam to leave the country before he issued warrants for their arrest.  That’s because he never wanted to arrest them.  Instead, he wanted to tip off his Muslim buddies running the ring, that they were under investigation by the feds.  He did this against the pleas of federal prosecutors, then sent out press releases and went on “O’Reilly Factor,” bragging about how tough he is on Medicaid fraud, when the exact opposite is true.

Then, there is his tight relationship with FBI award revokee, immigration fraud perpetrator, and “former” Islamic terrorist Imad Hamad.  Cox repeatedly visits the openly pro-HAMAS, pro-Hezbollah Hamad’s offices, asking publicly how he can help the man’s pan-terrorist organization, the deceptively named, Muslim-dominated American Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee (ADC).  Last year, Cox spoke as an honored guest at ADC’s Martin Luther King, Jr. essay contest banquet (see above photo).  Ironically, the contest was open only to Arabs, not to Blacks.  And Cox posed with and praised multiple open anti-Semites and known Hezbollah agents, whom he eagerly glad-handed at the event.

Cox also bragged on Twitter about campaigning at a Hezbollah mosque.  Ah, a Halal “tea party.”  Alhamdillullah [praise allah].

I’ve written so much more about Cox’s pandering to extremist Muslims (redundant phrase)..  But that’s the Cliff’s Notes version.

Now, he’s spending tens of thousands of tax dollars to pander to Muslims once again.  Is that really what the Tea Parties stand for?  If not, why is he a repeated fixture at the events?

Republican corrupticans who pander to extremist Muslims replacing Democrat corruptocrats?  Sorry, the tea is rancid.  And it ain’t no party.  Count me out.

I understand feelings against Cox. I’m not crazy about him either. Given a choice between getting involved with an organization, that is getting attention opposing socializing America, and not trying to unseat the much more corrupt demtards, I’ll tea party.
In todays world, I think, one has to try to further the most good at any given time.
Where the republicans have their dumb asses kissing the ass of many muslims, look at the alternatives. Not too promising. Just like holding my nose, voting for McCain. I hope he loses his re-election bid, but he’d have been better than Obamanation. Nobody in the Bush administration coined a phrase as loony as “Man caused disaster”.

J: HUH? This is FAR worse than McCain. What are you smoking? McCain never did any of this stuff. Mike Cox is far worse than any Democrat running for Governor. Period. Sorry to hear you excuse this kind of thing. This is why you will get only this kind of crappy candidate and elected official, b/c you vote for it and you get what you deserve. You are saying a criminal scumbag in the back pocket of Islamic terrorists, allowing them to commit Medicaid fraud and have anchor babies galore is “better” than the “demtards” as you call them? Wake the heck up. One would have thought that in years of reading this site, you’d get it. But you don’t. DS

Joe on April 13, 2010 at 1:37 pm

I also don’t understand the short term memories on Ted Nugent supporters. I really don’t.

J: Huh? Look in the mirror.

I do get it. It’s just like your two-second memory on Mike Cox. You know he’s complete scum and in the back pocket of this country’s enemies (and helping them invade the country and commit fraud). Yet you say you will vote for him. You are no different than the Nugent supporters. And the Obama supporters. DS

Joe on April 13, 2010 at 1:39 pm

    I’d love to vote for the nerd. I didn’t say I’d be voting for Cox, I was indicating I’d be continuing the tea party support. That’s the organization I think has a chance at getting conservatives to get out the vote. I’m not smoking anything. Drank a half a pot of coffee with some grape juice earlier. Keep the passion alive though.
    After years of reading this site I AM smarter. I also know not to kick your bee hive by saying I’d vote for Cox just to get a angry response. CHILL.

    Joe on April 13, 2010 at 2:52 pm

Thanks again, Debbie.

Keep up the great, fearless, work that no one else has the chutzpah or intellectual honesty to be doing!

David on April 13, 2010 at 1:51 pm

I would agree that the Tea Party people need to be more selective about whom they support. Standing behind people like Mr. Cox is problematic at best Getting close to anyone who panders to Islamists, even if they claim to be conservatives(Grover Norquist anyone?), is very, very unwise.

Unfortunately, the Tea Party Movement is a symptom of a disease, namely the implosion of the Republican Party. It fills a vacuum left by others who are unable or unwilling to organize a coherent opposition to the left. The Tea Party Movement might appear to be rancid at times, but what of the rest of the conservative movement? Are they more than dust and bones at the moment? Do funereal invocations of Ronald Reagan, Sean Hannity style, accomplish anything? I would agree that the Tea Party Movement is a sign of decadence in the conservative movement, rather than a sign of health.

I have definitly soured on the tea parties. abc news is reporting sarah palin has made twelve million since june and that number is likely to increase. I know she got paid a hundred grand for one speech but I’m left wondering how much she has made from the tea parties. When I heard the tea parties twenty things they want for America and not one thing said about illegal immigrants I knew it had been co opted. Its to bad because I think it started out innocent enough but to many frauds started getting involved and exploited them. The main stream right wing has really become pathetic.

tyler on April 13, 2010 at 2:01 pm

    The Tea Parties have been taken over by the Saudi owned Fox News Channel and their allies, i.e., Sarah Palin, Sean Hannity, Glenn Beck, Mike Cox, and the rest of the profit-hungry, self-serving frauds.

    Palin is in it for the money-period. If Saudi Arabia offered her money to speak at their events, she will take it. Follow the money.

    The Tea folks refuse to listen to logic. They have been brainwashed by the Saudi owned Fox News.

    Antoinette on April 13, 2010 at 3:31 pm

Just a small correction on the jurisdiction issue. Federal law enforcement employees can be investigated and charged for a crime arrising out of use of force by a local prosecutor. Quite frequently Border Patrol Agents are charged locally in shooting cases and the State of Idaho tried to charge Lon Horiuchi for shooting Vickie Weaver during the Randy Weaver seige. The Department of Justice to stop it had to assert federal jurisdiction, but, of course did nothing afterward. That is the usual policy of DOJ involving FBI shootings, but they do not exercise federal jurisdiction for most other federal agencies, especailly the Border Patrol. Just look at the case of Border Patrol Agent Nicholas Corbett who was tried twice by Cochise County even after the Border Patrol concluded it was a justified shooting.

F: Actually, the FBI documents needed for the investigation will be unattainable. The FBI already said it will refuse to turn the docs over, which is why Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy declined to investigate. The feds WILL assert supremacy laws in this case, and Mike Cox and his toadies won’t have power to get anything. The shooting happened in the federal agents’ capacity with the federal government. Cox has no juice to do anything here . . . except his usual wasting of tax dollars to promote himself to Muslims. DS

Federale on April 13, 2010 at 2:02 pm

    In any event, the proper investigating authority is the Department of Justice Office of Inspector General and the Civil Rights Division, but, as per practice, neither make much effort in FBI shooting incidents. However, OIGs are very agressive in other agencies in shooting incidents, as is the DOJ CRD. My point with the local prosecutors is that they can investigate and charge, as they do in USBP cases quite frequently. Though this appears to be a good shoot, I just don’t like the double standard for everyone else but the FBI.

    Federale on April 14, 2010 at 1:56 pm

This is very disheartening to hear, and unfortunately it’s not an isolated incident. The criminal, anti-semite Jim Traficant is speaking at my local tea party on Thursday.

Jim Traficant! I can’t believe it! This villain thinks Jews are after him. I’m actually tempted to wear my Mossad shirt and follow him around to see what he’ll do.

Debbie, your work in exposing Islam has been priceless. In your opinion, what politician is the strongest supporter of Israel, and understands the threat Islam poses to western civilization?

Vince on April 13, 2010 at 2:04 pm

Finally, it is amazing that Melanie Morgan still has any sort of audience. Describing her as vapid would be far too kind.

S: Amen. BTW, she was fired from her radio show. So her only audience is online and at these gullible tea parties and with her fraudulent charity Move America Forward. I’ll be writing about that at some point. DS

sorrow01 on April 13, 2010 at 2:25 pm

I haven’t liked the Tea Party for quite a while. This started for me when they started having so-called conservative Republicans speaking at their events. The Tea Party movement shouldn’t be associated with either major party, but they are certainly bringing the career Republican politicians into their fold.

Having Palin talk at these events is enough to make me not trust them. She is one of the worst people to be used as an advocate for the Tea Party. I only need to look at her endorsements of McCain to make me swear off anything associated with the Tea Party. There are also too many other politicians like Palin that the Tea Party should distance themselves from, but they don’t. I’m sure you know who they are.

Jarhead on April 13, 2010 at 3:17 pm

If we’re looking for a GOP resurgence this year, we may be set up for a huge disappointment. And the Tea Party’s association with a discredited Republican establishment may just be enough to stall it. So what is it? I’m of the opinion its the same old vinegar under a shiny new label. If you like what Mike Cox and others like him happen to represent. Until then, I’d stay away from the entire Tea Party phenomenon.

NormanF on April 13, 2010 at 5:10 pm

I’m part of a 912 group. Yes we share the same origins as the Tea Parties & Patriot groups. We’r upset conservative people. And though these large public figures are receiving a lot of media attention, don’t think that the Conservative movement is 100% behing them. I know my group is becoming a little preturbed at the Tea Party Pro Republican push and not talking about all candidates that state they are conservative. It’s the big fear push that the only way to boot the liberals & socialists out is to vote Republican.

I’m from MI. And for your information a woman from the council of the 912 group I belong to found a long shot running for governor as a Republican and helped him become a part of the forum on 4/12/10. He received more applause than the vetern politicians in the introduction part of the night. We want to here from every CONSERVATIVE. Yes, most tend to run under the Republican name, but it doesn’t mean we’ll support them all.

Each Tea Party, 912, American Patriot Group is different. We belong to local groups that are like communities. Each group is different. It’s like each township & state. This is why a LARGE Federal Government is BAD. When small government is focused on the people who are directly around you, you can actually agree on ideals because you tend to live around people who are like you.

So Please STOP ASSUMING that everyone in the Conservative movement is still behaving like sheep. The media shows the BIG News items. They don’t come to the monthly meeting of the 1,000’s of groups around the Country. They don’t know that we want the ability to be able to vote for people NOT the parties. Unfortunetely, the DEMOCRATES & REPUBLICANS have made that a near impossible feat.

Stop assuming. Talk to someone that is in a group. Check out the websites. My group is mostly a combination of Republicans, Libertarians and Independents, but we do have a few Democrates even.

Thank you.

K: Unfortunately, the Tea Party groups may have different names but they share the same thing: sleaze, corruption, and anti-Semitism. The 912 Tea Party group, your group, hosts anti-Semite and convicted felon (who accepted bribes, etc.) Jim Traficant at its Ohio events. Don’t assume. Wake UP. DS

    Wasn’t the “912” project created by glenn beck?

    tyler on April 13, 2010 at 7:21 pm

    Um, like I said. I’m from MI-not OH. Each group is different. Our group gets pissed at the type of speakers too SOMETIMES. And though I like Palin overall, the fact that she is promoting McCain really made me mad. We are watching everything everyone is doing. Mike Cox, in many of our opinions is trying to jump on the Tea Party Band Wagon & USE us. I chose a few months ago not to vote for him. I don’t assume anything, but people lumping every group together are. The TEA Party from Genesee understands that these are local groups.

    M: Next you’ll be telling us that Rev. Wright tried to jump on the Obama bandwagon. Newsflash: The Tea Party Express INVITED him to be a speaker at all of their Michigan events. And he spoke to thousands of CHEERING Tea Party activists. It isn’t called band wagon jumping. It’s called, “partners.” The Tea Party Express is partnering with Mike Cox. And that’s reason enough to stay far away.

    ME on April 14, 2010 at 1:49 am

I am a TEA party member in Genesee County, MI, and plan on being involved in the local tax day protest in Flint. TEA = Taxed Enough Already. That is why I am involved, and will stay involved as long as this local group keeps this as their main issue.

Yankee Will on April 13, 2010 at 9:24 pm

Just a word of advice for all of you naysayers of Palin and the tea party. Why is it that in a Capitalist Society, it’s immoral for a conservative to make Capital? Who here on this site donates all of their time for free?

And those of you who believe they’re going to get Jesus Christ or his mother Mary as their elected representative, well I have to say your hopes are at the very least misplaced.

Folks, you are going to have to learn that you have to take the spots with the leopard.

08: Get a clue. She quit in the middle of her first and only term as governor to make money, then she continued to dupe and lie to people. The woman is nothing more than a cheap whore. DS

For the love of God, it is anti jew. Because anti semitic can mean many things. Including anti muslim, anti arab, anti jew, anti christian, anti judaism, anti islam. Which do you mean?

I am tired of having to correct your spelling, and having to show you the propper use of words. Thank you very much!

Christopher Nelson on April 14, 2010 at 12:38 pm

No one sucking up to the Muslim community and terrorist supporters for votes should get any support from Tea Party patriots or Republicans and we should expose this malfeasance and abuse of the movement far and wide. I had no idea about Mike Cox and the Tea Party movement of Michigan but here in NY, I doubt that we would fall for such a fraud. We, The Nassau/Queens 9-12 Project and the other grassroots groups on LI and NY are a politically active group of folks, Jews and Christians who love and support Israel with all our hearts. There are many Israelis and Orthodox Jews in our group as well, and one of our major objectives is a unified Israel and Jerusalem. We were involved in organizing and promoting the 9/11 civilian terror trial protests in Manhattan and only after we stirred up the pot and raised our voices did Mayor Bloomberg and the rest of the NY electeds fall in line and demand Holder stop the terror trails in NY. We gave AG Eric Holder the surprise of his lifetime, and let him personally hear our loud voices and outrage on a frigid snowy serene Sunday morning when he came to speak at a Long Island church service. We sent press releases and made 100’s of calls, letters, faxes and to NYC Council Speaker Christine Quinn’s office in January and had the anti-Semitic, former Black Panther, thug Councilman Charles Barron removed from his chairmanship of the Council Higher Education Committee. Now, our Tea Party group is one of the major sponsors of the mass Israel Solidarity rally on April 25 at the Israeli Consulate in NYC in protest against the Obama administration’s unrelenting assault on Israel. In fact tomorrow evening at the Tax Day rally I plan to be distributing fliers for this event.

Having said that, I would urge you not to throw the baby out with the bath water. You should avoid jumping on the left-wing media driven Tea Party bashing frenzy. Criticism, yes, but don’t kill the fledgling. The Tea Party folks are the troopers, the revolutionaries of today, who assemble peacefully, and soldier on amidst the daily radical socialist barrage from a federal government that is out of control and no longer hears or represents the will of the people. It signifies the greatest patriotic rallying cry of hard working American citizens in recent history, who love our country, and realize it’s time to stand up and fight for our individual liberties with our voices, pens and votes, that our soldiers fought and died for overseas. There is no messiah, no national charismatic leader – it is a bottom-up movement, composed of countless local loosely organized groups, that can sometimes get off message. If we find politicians and self-serving sleaze bags who abuse the movement for votes or their own agenda, or conspiracy theorists, anti-Semites and racists who glom on to it and give it a bad name, it is unfair to smear the entire movement, and all the good people in it, with a broad judgmental brush. The free market applies to ideas as it does to goods, and although some may remain delusion, the majority of the people will not be fooled for long by an impostor such as Mike Cox, or the Alinkyites infiltrating the movement. Believe it.

Please don’t write us off yet. Hope to see you at the big Israel rally in NYC next Sunday!

Phil Orenstein on April 15, 2010 at 12:09 am

Were some of our Founding Fathers anti-semitic? Were some of our original colonies openly hostile to Jews? Did some of their churches teach anti-semitism and codify it?

Did some subsequent leaders, politicians, military commanders, religious leaders, and all their masses of followers and supporters build Our Nation, even while they harbored anti-semitism deep in their hearts?

How do we proceed in our efforts to secure our Liberty in our generation knowing full-well we will always be surrounded by and working along side anti-semites? Highly flawed humans all around. Spend inordinate amounts of time trying to shower off that filthy-grimey-I-might-be-a-whore feeling? Or simply proceed with our eyes wide open?

I greatly appreciate Debbie’s work in painting detailed, vividly colored, startling clear pictures of who people really are and who they are connected with. I am not finding this information so readily available anywhere else. But perhaps my eyes are still opening.

Thank you again for another interesting, informative, and challenging newsletter, Ms. Schlussel.
