Conspiracies abound

So this idiot grows a beard, lies about being a Muslim convert, gets an internship at the Council on American-Islamic Relations, steals a bunch of their stuff and then writes a book with his dad claiming there's a muslim conspiracy to undermine American national security.

Republicans have picked it up, screaming for an investigation into the findings.
Mrs. Myrick and Republican Reps. John Shadegg of Arizona, Paul Broun of Georgia and Trent Franks of Arizona called Wednesday for an investigation by the House sergeant-at-arms into whether CAIR was successful in planting congressional interns.

"If an organization that is connected to or supports terrorists is running influence operations or planting spies in key national security-related congressional offices, I think this needs to be made known," Mr. Broun said.
Of course the main congresspeople pushing this are clearly a bit nutty and the guy who sent his son undercover is a major nutjob who's convinced Obama's a Muslim who wants to bring Sharia law to the United States, but that doesn't mean we shouldn't look at the evidence they claim demonstrates (in the words of North Carolina Republican Rep. Sue Myrick) a "concerted effort on the part of radical Islamists to infiltrate our major institutions."

And here's the evidence, taken from a memo stolen from the CAIR offices:




It reads: We will focus on influencing congressmen responsible for policy that directly impacts the American Muslim community. (For example congressmen on the judiciary, intelligence and homeland security committees.) We will develop national initiatives such as a lobby day and placing Muslim interns in Congressional offices.

In other words, the undercover investigation came up with nothing. This is simply a typical PR planning memo in which a group seeks to get a hearing for its constituents by getting people near those who can make a difference. If you think there's something special about this, however, check out the mission of the conservative Leadership Institute, which uses almost precisely the same language.
The Leadership Institute’s mission is to increase the number and effectiveness of conservative activists and leaders in the public policy process. To accomplish this mission, the Institute identifies, recruits, trains, and places conservatives in government, politics, and the media.
Morton Blackwell's Leadership Institute has been creating and farming out conservative ideologues for 30 years now and there's nothing wrong with that. Right wingers have every right to build a base of support for their beliefs. If, however, CAIR is a conspiracy, then the Leadership Institute has been operating a conspiracy since 1979.

The truth is, getting an aide position in Congress is a complicated and often grueling process and getting a position on a committee that deals with defense and security requires a thorough background check. So the Muslim aides to congresspeople have to have proven their loyalty to the U.S.

Arguing with these people about this won't help, of course. As Blackwell himself once wrote, "Those fully convinced of a conspiracy theory take any contradictory information as proof positive of just how clever the masters of the conspiracy are."

Terry,

Good to see you posting!

"So this idiot ... lies about being a Muslim convert ..."

Isn't this called "bearing false witness"? I suppose we can presume he's not a Christian.

Best,

Ours is an envionment where evil is perceived to be rewarded while good is punished. As with everything the Gods have a reason for creating this perception::::
People who fall on the good side of the good/evil scale have more favor, and when they do something wrong the Gods punish them BECAUSE THEY WANT THEM TO LEARN. The Gods want them to receive this feedback in hope they make corrections and begin to behave appropriately. The Gods DON'T like evil and refuse to grant this feedback.
EVERYBODY pays for what they do wrong, only evil people must wait until their next life before they will experience the wrath of the Gods, manifested in their reincarnation as a lower form of life into environments with increased/enhanced temptations.
Sadly, this allows the Gods to position this perception of evil rewarded as temptation, one which they use as an EXTREMELY effective corruptor.

Both Africa and the Medittereanean are regions which have sexual issues. This is a sign of morbid disfavor once you understand that females are the God's favored gender. Muhammad's (Mohammed's) polygamy halfway through his life as a prophet was preditory. Now a huge percentage of Muslims believes in male superiority and that the abuse of women is God's will. Female genital mutilation is still practiced in Africa. Black misogyny is the most eggregious example in the recent past.
Black member size is temptation to a predisposed population.
The patriarchal cancer spread throughout Europe because of Christianity, of which the majority of policy makers were Italian men. Expect the largest landowner in Europe and the continent's original superpower also played a major role in African slavery.

Militancy in Africa is consistant with the Iraqi example, as was slavery and the KKK here in America:::Fear enforces proper behavior. Without it we see what happens as a result of gross/morbid disfavor:::::AIDS, crack babies, dead young men in gangland retaliation killings. This is the purpose behind many black's historical tendancy towards resistance.
The same principle was true in Europe and throughout the world for centuries:::People whom lived under iron fists were conditioned to think the right way. As a result they experienced higher numbers of children accend into heaven because they were taught to think and behave appropriately, which they passed on to their children. Our preditory envionment of "freedom" was the primary purpose the Gods had when implimenting this strategy that is the United States, one which they used to spred the cancer of democracy and westernization throughout the world. And the Gods use this tool that is America to prey on the disfavored both at home and abroad:::Much like the ghetto, America in general experiences a heightened level of temptation due to the people's disfavor.

Even the Old Testiment is not to be taken literally, but the Gods do offer clues throughout to help the disfavored:::The apple is a tool of temptation used to corrupt Adam and Eve and cast them out of the Garden of Eden.
There is another lesson to be learned from this passage, and it is quite similar to the vailing issue and the discourse over women's attire which ultimately died in the 70s:::Women are responsible for and control the fate of mankind.

Think about what I say. Consider what I teach. Society is going to become disturbingly ugly as we approach the Apocalypse due to spiralling, runaway disfavor.
I do not know when this will occurr, but it is the God's way to grant some time before they end on Planet Earth.
Make the decision to always be good and never look back. Until you do this technology will employ tactics to test your resolve:::Ridicule, beligerance, doubt and refusal to abandon what people perceive to be their "investment".
Pray daily. Think appropriately. Too many are confident, unaware of the God's awesome powers or their status as antients. Others may fall prey to their positioning.
Be humbled, God-fearing and beware of the God's temptations, for everyone is tested to evaluate their worthiness.
Search rest

Dear Anonymous,

Thank you so much for your post. I've been wondering for a while why it was that Dick Cheney seemed to be getting away with everything he's done. Now I know it's because the "Gods DON'T like evil and refuse to grant (evil people the) feedback" of punishment. It explains so much.

I owe you a fruitbasket.
