Individuals from the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) visited the White House at least 20 times starting in 2009. In 2008, CAIR was listed as an unindicted co-conspirator in the largest terrorist money laundering case in U.S. history – the trial of the Holy Land Foundation in which five HLF officials were convicted of funneling money to Hamas.

U.S. District Court Judge Jorge Solis later ruled that, "The Government has produced ample evidence to establish the association" of CAIR to Hamas, upholding their designations as unindicted co-conspirators. In 2008, the FBI formally ended all contact with CAIR because of its ties to Hamas.

In January 2004, Hussam Ayloush, executive director of CAIR's Los Angeles office, publicly defended Palestinian terror attacks in comments before Muslim students at the University of California – Los Angeles, saying that terrorists were exercising their "legitimate right" to defend themselves against Israeli occupation.

Ayloush, who was a delegate to the 2012 Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C., casts the United States as controlled by Israeli interests. At a 2008 CAIR banquet in San Diego, he imagined "an America that respects and humanizes religion. It's an America that is free to act on its values and not on the interests of any foreign lobby." In 2004, he said that the war on terror had become a "war on Muslims." Ayloush attended at least two White House meetings.

The logs show Ayloush met with Paul Monteiro, associate director of the White House Office of Public Engagement on July 8, 2011 and Amanda Brown, assistant to the White House director of political affairs Patrick Gaspard, on June 6, 2009.

According to reliable sources, Monteiro was White House liaison for secret contacts with CAIR, especially with Ayloush. IPT has learned that the White House logs curiously have omitted Ayloush's three meetings with two other senior White House officials.

Louay Safi, formerly executive director of the Islamic Society of North America, visited the White House twice – meeting in intimate settings with Paul Monteiro on June 29, 2011 and July 8, 2011.

Law enforcement first noticed Safi in 1995 when his voice was captured in an FBI wiretap of now-convicted Palestinian Islamic Jihad leader Sami Al-Arian. At the time of his conversation with Al-Arian, Safi served as executive director of the International Institute of Islamic Thought, an organization listed in law-enforcement and in internal Muslim Brotherhood documents as one of the movement's top front groups in North America.

Safi also wrote for the Middle East Affairs Journal, produced by the United Association for Studies and Research (UASR). That group was established by Hamas deputy political leader Mousa Abu Marzook and part of the Hamas-support network called the "Palestine Committee."

Safi has repeatedly expressed understanding for the underlying causes that provoke terrorism: "Terrorism cannot be fought by…ignoring its root causes. The first step…is to examine the conditions that give rise to the anger, frustration, and desperation that fuel all terrorist acts." He also called Palestinian terrorists "freedom" fighters.

Esam Omeish, former head of the Muslim Brotherhood-created Muslim American Society, visited the White House three times.

In 2000, Omeish personally hired the late terrorist Anwar al-Awlaki to be the imam of Falls Church, VA, Dar al-Hijrah mosque. According to IPT analysis, more terrorists have been linked to Dar al-Hijrah since 9/11 than to any other mosque in America.

Omeish publicly mourned the Israeli airstrike that killed Hamas founder Sheikh Ahmed Yassin at an April 10, 2004, MAS conference.

According to video captured by IPT, Omeish went a step further at the December 22, 2000, Jerusalem Day rally in Washington's Lafayette Park, praising Palestinian terror groups, saying they had learned "the jihad way" to "liberate" Palestine.

way to go CIA,SS,FBI,looking out for us????

President Obama’s Taxpayer-Backed Green Energy Failures
[T]he extent of its failure has been largely ignored by the press. Sure, single instances garner attention as they happen, but they ignore past failures in order to make it seem like a rare case.
So far, 34 companies that were offered federal support from taxpayers are faltering — either having gone bankrupt or laying off workers or heading for bankruptcy. This list includes only those companies that received federal money from the Obama Administration’s Department of Energy and other agencies.

This guy is obviously in his own hell. And I'm compelled to offer hope to the hopeless.

It's the only thing I know to do.

But it will be the last time I say anything to him. It's going to take a supernatural power to change a heart like his. I just had to say what I had to say. It's out of my hands now.

It's clear what's at stake though if we don't win this fight. I believe it's going to take a supernatural power to help us win it - even if it's one person at a time.

<quoted text>How is Trump offering $5 million to Obama's favorite charity promoting himself and making him money? He doesn't need to do either. You are hopeless if you think all that is wrong with the Obama presidency is that angry white males can't tolerate a racially diverse man in the White House.
White males voted Obama into the White House. Angry males say he has failed their expectations and the country can't afford four more years of failure, regardless of the presidents' race.
I just happened to see The View this morning on TV. Every single cackling hen was laying an egg about the Race Card again. I must've rolled my eyes. They never give it up, do they?

People don't know who Obama is and still don't know! Obama paid millions of $$$ to have his college records sealed. Why, and what is he hiding? Was he foreign exchange student? His father and his family muslim religion, so ad his stepfather. Obama is registered in Indonesia as a muslim. His mother married to both men, muslim.
Saul Alinsky, Frank Marshall Davis, Bill Ayers, Rev. Jeremiah Wright, Louis Farrakhan ( nation of Islam) all of them AMERICA HATERS! What is wrong with the American people? Did anyone saw when Obama bowed to Saudi King? According to muslim religion, you have to show your submission to their God Allah. What did Obama doo when he bowed to the Saudis, but show his submission. Obama disrespected his country, his people and the entire nation. In 2009, he visited all muslim nations on middle east, all America's haters but Israel. What is that telling you?
In 2008 he did say, "FUNDAMENTALLY WE ARE GOING TO TRANSFORM AMERICA"!
What is wrong with people? Why are some so blind? Why would you let someone to deceive you
and destroy the most beautiful country on Earth?
Well, guess I said goodnight prematurely.

The first thing I say to people who say they voted for Obama the last time but are so disappointed and won't do it again is "weren't you listening the first time?"

Everything that came out about him and his affiliations and his support of partial birth abortions should have been enough red flags but when he kept saying he wanted to "fundamentally transform" this country, that in itself should have been the biggest one.

Mindboggling to me.

Here is a video where Obama supporters are approached and various policies were described as being those of Romney and they were asked for responses.

Then he reviles that Obama has done all this things.

Obama supporters are low information voters.

Why are you people so Bearish? The US economy is doing a lot better than the global economy as a whole, and economic growth is forecasted to increase. Much of the good news is a result of FED action. Hopefully, whatever president gets elected, I hope he winds down the wars and pays for the deficit. But lets hope that president has leverage in congress, because there's no way we can go forward with as a divided congress as the last four years.
yeah you are right

Defense Secretary Leon Panetta says the U.S. military did not intervene during the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Libya last month because it was over before the U.S. has sufficient information on which to act.(Oct. 25)



Panetta thinks seven hours is so short a time that it is over too fast to act? Really?
