Former President Jimmy Carter is the featured keynote speaker at this weekend’s Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) convention at Detroit’s Cobo Hall.

The Justice Department recently implicated ISNA, which claims to be America’s largest Muslim organization, as the lead conduit in a scheme to illegally pass on $12 million to Hamas, the Palestinian terror group established to annihilate the State of Israel. Hamas is officially designated a terrorist group by the US government.

The Justice Department officially designated ISNA as an un-indicted co-conspirator as part of its successful 2007 trial of those accused of coordinating fundraising efforts for Hamas in the United States through the Dallas-based Holy Land Foundation. A federal judge turned down a subsequent ISNA appeal to reverse the designation, claiming there was "ample" evidence that Holy Land officials clearly "operated from within ISNA." Key evidence presented at the trial were checks written to known Hamas terrorists and deposited into ISNA accounts from where they were passed on to Hamas.

Shukri Abu Bakr, now serving a 65-year sentence following his conviction on multiple counts of providing material support to Hamas, admitted to working from inside ISNA’s headquarters as he served as Hamas’s top operative in the United States.

Providing any support or assistance to a designated foreign terrorist organization is a violation of Section 18 of the U.S. Code § 2339B and is punishable by imprisonment of not more than fifteen years. If the death of any person results from providing such support, the penalty increases to imprisonment for any term up to and including life.

US civil rights expert Alan Dershowitz claims that fundraising for ISNA may constitute violation of Section 18, which would put Jimmy Carter "very close to, if not across the line" of criminal activity.

The 89-year-old former president has become an increasingly venomous critic of Israel. In addition to writing a 2006 book that accused Israel of “perpetrating even worse instances of Apartheid than we witnessed in South Africa,” he has more recently accused the Jewish state of deliberately starting the current war with Hamas in order to stop the terrorist group from what he called its “encouraging moves toward peace.”

A three-page memo produced at trial fingered both Abu Baker and ISNA as working together for the "coordination and accounting” of Hamas's deadly suicide bombing campaign that killed and wounded thousands of Israelis between 2000 and 2003, during the so-called "2nd Palestinian Intifada."

Several ISNA board members who will welcome President Carter to their event are themselves still officially registered as unindicted co-conspirators: Jamal Badawi for his role in Holy Land Foundation trial and Siraj Wahhaj for his role in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing.

ISNA’s 2014 Convention will held for the first time in Michigan, home to both the country’s largest and fastest-growing Muslim population. Michigan Governor Rick Synder is scheduled to welcome delegates at the conference’s opening session on Friday.

Also featured at this weekend’s ISNA convention are Bishop Elizabeth Eaton, the national leader of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, and U.S. Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN), the first Muslim member of the US Congress.

How many more times are you going to post this crap?
The Community Reinvestment Act, passed in 1977, requires banks to lend in the low-income neighborhoods where they take deposits. Just the idea that a lending crisis created from 2004 to 2007 was caused by a 1977 law is silly. But it’s even more ridiculous when you consider that most subprime loans were made by firms that aren’t subject to the CRA. University of Michigan law professor Michael Barr testified back in February before the House Committee on Financial Services that 50% of subprime loans were made by mortgage service companies not subject comprehensive federal supervision and another 30% were made by affiliates of banks or thrifts which are not subject to routine supervision or examinations. As former Fed Governor Ned Gramlich said in an August, 2007, speech shortly before he passed away:“In the subprime market where we badly need supervision, a majority of loans are made with very little supervision. It is like a city with a murder law, but no cops on the beat.”
Not surprisingly given the higher degree of supervision, loans made under the CRA program were made in a more responsible way than other subprime loans. CRA loans carried lower rates than other subprime loans and were less likely to end up securitized into the mortgage-backed securities that have caused so many losses, according to a recent study by the law firm Traiger & Hinckley
Better targets for blame in government circles might be the 2000 law which ensured that credit default swaps would remain unregulated, the SEC’s puzzling 2004 decision to allow the largest brokerage firms to borrow upwards of 30 times their capital and that same agency’s failure to oversee those brokerage firms in subsequent years as many gorged on subprime debt.

You're an idiot Harmonious; you always have been and also will be!
If Bill Clinton did not put the 1977 CRA on steroids and did not allow Fannie/Freddie to purchase sub prime loans you might have a point.

Stop lying we all know the truth already and there is nothing you can do about it

Hey! Why no Media Outrage over this? I need a new flatscreen TV!

Why has there been no media interest in the police shooting of an apparently unarmed suspect in Salt Lake City?

Just two days after the shooting death of Michael Brown, an officer with the Salt Lake City Police Department shot and killed an unarmed 20-year-old. The Salt Lake City Police Department equips some of its officers with cameras. The department confirmed the officer who shot had a camera and that footage of the confrontation and shooting was captured, but they would not elaborate further, and the video of the encounter has yet to be released publicly. As with the Michael Brown case, this "lack of transparency" has caused some family members of the deceased to raise questions.

But what of the race of the decedent and of the cop?

The local newspaper, the Salt Lake City Tribune, reported the story this way:

"A wanted fugitive fatally shot by Salt Lake City police, who were looking for a man reportedly brandishing a handgun outside a convenience store, was unarmed and trying to comply with police orders when he was killed, his brother claims.

"Investigators, citing the ongoing nature of the investigation and need to protect evidence, remained mum on whether a gun was found at the scene of the Monday night shooting at a 7-Eleven store.... Police also would not discuss conflicting witness reports that Dillon Delbert Taylor, 20, appeared to have reached toward his waistband during the confrontation.

MSNBC Anchor Discusses How to Use Ferguson to Stir Up Outrage and Register More Democrats

By Michael Hausam 16 hours ago





Chris Matthews Strategizes on How To Use Ferguson to Register Democrats

On his MSNBC show Hardball Tuesday, Chris Matthews focused on the important opportunity presented by of the unrest and myriad unanswered questions about the events in Ferguson: how to use them to stir up outrage and increase Democratic voter registration.
Chris Matthews, Elijah Cummings (D-MD), and Democratic pollster Margie Omero discussed how anger and frustration has successfully been used in the past to consolidate political power.
Unfortunately, consistently applying Chicago Mayor and former Obama Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel’s dictum –“you never want a serious crisis to go to waste”- is nothing new. Here are four examples of how the Democratic Party has electioneered tragedies:
Sandy Hook shooting – The President’s speech after the massacre was used in a Democrat party email, requesting more money to support his anti-gun efforts.
Boston Marathon bombings – An email one week after the event encouraged people to comment on the “B Strong” site and share the Democratic National Committee’s “thank you” note, as well as sign up for political and marketing activities.
Navy shipyard shooting – After the 2013 attack, Organizing for Action – the offshoot from the President’s campaign committee – highlighted the attack as a justification for more political and financial anti-gun support.
Gabby Giffords shooting – Bernie Sanders (Socialist – VT) directly tied her attempted murder to “right-wing reactionaries” in a request for money.
MSNBC anchor Al Sharpton has been in Ferguson as a social activist, but he was not a part of this discussion. Sharpton is raising questions of journalistic ethics by alternating between a role of news commentator and that of being a part of the news as a social activist.
Ryan Schussler, a journalist assigned to Ferguson, Missouri, famously quit his post for Al Jazeera America due to the shameful behavior of colleagues trying to make themselves part of the story.
“The behavior and number of journalists there is so appalling, that I cannot in good conscience continue to be a part of the spectacle,” he wrote.
“There are now hundreds of journalists from all over the world coming to Ferguson to film what has become a spectacle. I get the sense that many feel this is their career-maker,” Schuessler continued.“We should all be ashamed, and I cannot do it anymore.”
If only more news anchors would have such integrity, we might have less media activism and more informed Americans.
