There was an off limits topic or two at CPAC 2013. One is the international threat to civilization, Islam. Readers should understand two things. The first is that, wherever it dominates, Islam darkly, ruthlessly and completely smothers the human freedom we were all endowed with by God. The other is that Islam, through, for example, the Conference of Islamic Cooperation and especially international Jihad, Islam is actively at war with the United States of America.

Why would any mention of this dark force that threatens the very existence of American freedom be kept out of CPAC? There can be only one reason. Two members of the CPAC board, Grover Norquist and Suhail A. Khan.

Norquist set out years ago to bring American Muslims into the Republican Party.  He was very effective. Norquist was trusted by President Bush to bring input from influential American Muslims into the Presidents response to the 911 Islamic terrorist attacks on America. By September 13th, with Norquist’s help, the President visited Mosques 17 times and on the 26September, 15 Islamic leaders were at the White House where the President declared with the media present, “The teachings of Islam are of peace and good.” This was the first of several similar Bush pronouncements. Norquist, who married a Palestinian Muslim named Samah Alrayyes. According to Wikipedia, Alrayyes is a Kuwaiti PR specialist and was formerly a director of the Islamic Free Market Institute and specialist at the Bureau of Legislative and Public Affairs at United States Agency for International Development (USAID). Norquist, who is (or was) a client of pollster John Zogby, a radical Muslim, always defends everything Islamic. Even specific terrorist attacks are somehow not caused by Islam.

You remember American born radical Jihadist Imam, Anwar Al-Awlaki. He was the Imam for the Ft. Hood Jidadist, Army Major Nidal Hasan. He was hunted down and killed with a predator drone in September 2011 by President Obama (who was never called a chicken-hawk). Shortly after September 11, 2001 the Department of Defense brought Al-Awlaki in to consult on relations with Muslins. This apparently happend because of a breakdown in communication between the DOD and the FBI. But who greased the skid in the first place to slide Al-Awlaki into DOD? It was either Norquist or Bush staffer Suhail A. Khan. Kahn sold himself as a moderate Muslim and an American patriot. This is false. Kahn is actively working to replace freedom with Shariah and more in America. According to one of the uninvited, Pamela Geller, “Suhail Kahn is a foremost instrument of this demonization of voices of freedom. The enimedia got into an uproar when I said, ‘Am I saying that Suhal is as bad as Anwar Al-Awaki? He is worse.’”

These two keep anyone who calls America to wake from its slumber and stand up for the defeat of Islam off the program. The rules were tightened even more for 2013. Enter Breitbart Inc. Breitbart rented a room at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center and invited the uninvited.

The first speaker was former US Attorney General Mike Mukasey who discussed the threat of “civilizational jihad” and the willful ignorance preventing our political class from confronting it. Mukasey opened weith this great couplet, “I want to thank CPAC for making this panel necessary and Breitbart for making it possible:”


Breitbart Chairman Steve Bannon led a panel of conservative stalwarts like Frank Gaffney, Robert Spencer and Pamela Geller. The first panelist to speak was Nina Shea, who works fearlessly to put a spotlight on religious (especially Christian) persecution. This presentation alone was worth Breitbart’s effort:


You won’t want to miss a single word from Geller. She hit the bullseye every time she pulled the trigger (a little First Amendment application to the Second Amendment). Her opening example was, “Truth is the new hate speech:”

They finished “The Uninvited” with a lively question and answer session (poor audio quality):
