Jihad Darrell Loses: McCotter Defeats Pro-Hezbo/Syria Darrell Issa 4 House GOP Policy Job; Schlussel Cited

By Debbie Schlussel
Even in this gloomy time, sometimes good things happen, and the House Republicans do the right thing.
Yesterday, I wrote a New York Post column about Congressman Darrell Issa a/k/a “Jihad Darrell” and his quest to become Chairman of the Republican Policy Committee. I wrote more about it on this site. As I wrote, the man has a consistent record of supporting and aiding Hezbollah, Syrian leader Bashar Assad, and Palestinian terrorists.
High-ranking Capitol Hill sources tell me that my column on Issa was heavily circulated, yesterday, among House GOP Congressmen, many of whom took heed and voted for McCotter. This morning, the majority of House Republican Congressmen saw the light. They elected Michigan Congressman Thaddeus McCotter over Issa by more than a 2-1 margin, 132-63 votes.


So Sad, Too Bad:

Jihad Darrell Loses Race for House GOP Policy Chairman

Good for them. Proof that even a pan-Arabist gazillionaire like Issa–who has lied and stolen his way to the top–can’t always buy his way to victory.
I hope this big defeat will give Issa a hint that he should abandon his ambitions for higher office and leadership positions. There is no place for jihadists in those roles in America.
A note about Thad McCotter. In October 2004, I attended a Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR)-Michigan candidate forum. I was initially disappointed to see McCotter there. He gave a very friendly speech asserting that these were peaceful people (when they are not). However, my view on McCotter changed when I saw him tell off the CAIR board members and attendees on issues ranging from the war in Iraq to Israel to what it means to be an American.
A then-CAIR board member, Shi’ite Muslim nurse Najah Bazzy, a third-generation American who wears a hijab, said she is “embarrassed to be an American.” McCotter responded and told her off (and where to go). It was a great moment that told me what he’s about. Since then, Bazzy donated an anti-Israel propaganda tape (about the Jenin so-called “massacre”) for an anti-Israel exhibit at the National Arab American Musuem. She is also likely involved in a Medicaid and citizenship scam for pregnant Muslim foreigners who get Medicaid coverage and U.S. citizenship for their babies born here.

Najah Bazzy: Proud. . . er, “Embarrassed to Be an American”

Congratulations to Congressman McCotter–who has a great record on issues relating to terrorism, America’s national security, and Israel–on his win.

New House GOP Policy Committee Chairman Thaddeus McCotter

sounds like mccotter will do a good job and this may mark a setback for the new wave of ‘common sense conservatism’ rising under mccain, which is just a euphemism for appeasement, surrender and politically correct politics combined with some noises about reform and fiscal conservatism… which should be read as redirecting funds to mccain’s own supporters and donors pet projects

Debbie – If all it takes for things to change in “our” favor is for you to write a column… I say you need to get busy writing just a few more of them.
Go. Go on, now… What are you doing here reading comments? You need to be off writing columns that, as you so succinctly and eloquently do, lay down the facts in black and white so that our elected officials can make the “right” decisions. [Big cheer from this squad member!] Go, Debbie!!!

This may be a minor victory–but it clearly shows that free speech matters. I wonder if Issa would have made it otherwise. Thanks for your fearless example Debbie.

That is terrific news that we conservatives needed right about now. Thanks for all of your hard work, Debbie.

Yes Deb, Way to Go. Good for you, Good for the Repubs, but most importantly Good for all of us.

YES !! Baby steps, baby steps.
I hope you are ramping up the machine to hammer all of the expected DhimmiCrat obstructionism about to come down the pike.
I’m always willing to help. (grin)

Debbie, I read your posting on Issa and emailed my congressman. I am glad he lost. Keep up the good work.

Debbie…I’d like to see an investigation into Issa’s role in Irv Rubin’s “attempted suicide” in Nov 2002.
