Terrorist Lawyer and Anti-Israel Activist Running For Congress

Published

on

Huwaida Arraf

According to the Washington Free Beacon, anti-Israel activist and terrorist lawyer Huwaida Arraf has launched her campaign running for Congress as a Democrat in Michigan’s 10th District. Incumbent congresswoman, Rep. Lisa McClain (R.), told the Free Beacon that “Huwaida Arraf is a Bernie Sanders-style socialist who does not share the views of Michigan’s 10th Congressional District,” adding that “the last thing we need in Congress is another member of the Squad, and that’s exactly who she would align with if elected.”

Arraf has a long and proud history of coming to the aid of anti-Semitic terrorists, including those who have committed vicious acts of terrorism. She has repeatedly used her status as an American citizen to try to protect Palestinian terrorists. In the infamous 2010 Gaza flotilla, “which was aimed at forcing Israel to drop its blockade of goods to the terrorist-controlled Palestinian territory,” Arraf explained that her role was “to put herself forward as an American citizen to dissuade Israeli security from using force to block the ships,” which were loaded with weapons for Hamas, by repeatedly stating that she was aboard an “American flag vessel.” 

The Free Beacon notes that Arraf served on the legal team for Palestinian terrorist Rasmea Odeh who planned a terrorist attack in Jerusalem in 1969 that killed two and injured several others. Arraf helped Odeh fight to maintain her U.S. citizenship, which she received after being released in a prisoner exchange in 1980, but Odeh was deported in 2017. Arraf also aided “armed terrorists who sieged a historic church in Bethlehem and murdered at least one civilian” in 2002. Eager to “shield” the terrorists from the Israeli military, Arraf had her group of “activists” enter the church, and brought the “holed-up” terrorists food and water. 

Arraf is the cofounder of the International Solidarity Movement, “which encourages anti-Israel activists to ‘direct action’ to force confrontations with Israeli forces.” According to the Free Beacon, Arraf justifies Palestinian terrorism, and wrote in a 2002 article, “Palestinian resistance must take on a variety of characteristics, both non-violent and violent.” 

In her tweet launching her campaign, Arraf references her history of being “beaten, shot at, imprisoned, and hijacked at sea standing up to injustice on the global stage,” and adds that she is not afraid to fight. She might not be afraid, but with that introduction and her record, Americans should be.

    Ms Arraf is a very dangerous person, who brings too much personal baggage and disregard for our democratic traditions. We need more people in congress who care enough to focus on the many problems facing America, democracy, the wellbeing of all Americans and future of our country.

    Is Arraf a Hamas/Hezbollah surrogate? Looks like it. It seems most of these types are found in Michigan?

    Araf sure sounds more like an Islamic terrorist supporter than a Sanders-style Socialist. Michigan voters and US supporters, both Democrats & Republicans, need to get more active to keep Muslims from infiltrating US governments

    That is a shameful tragedy. I can’t believe that Michiganders who love our state and country would vote for that socialist trash

    If people study the Bible, this is all prophecy. If Isreal falls, it is the end of the end of life as we know it here on earth. No need to worry about “green new deals, balanced budgets or inflation”. These people and many in office right now, are PURE EVIL! It’s all about their greed and power. We need to primary every Rino and Democrat in office in the next 3 years. We need veterans, normal people who’ve owned and ran businesses. Study our candidates and go knock on doors for them. Go back to our grassroots once again.

    Considering the electorate in Michigan, she probably has a good chance…

DeSantis Slams Biden For Removing Marxist Terrorist Group From Terror List

Published

Ron DeSantis

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis responded to President Biden’s decision to remove a Marxist guerilla group U.S.’s list of Foreign Terrorist Organizations.
A
statement from DeSantis’ office said it was a “reckless decision to remove the radically communist Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) from the United States list of foreign terrorist organizations” because the group has, for decades, “perpetuated countless murders, bombings, assassinations, kidnapping and attacks under the guise of ‘redistributing wealth.’”

DeSantis said, “President Biden’s decision to remove the FARC from the State Department’s list of Foreign Terrorist Organizations will embolden terrorist groups throughout Latin America, empower narco-traffickers and pave the way for Castro-chavismo in Colombia.”

“Biden’s policy is an insult to members of the Colombian American community, many of whom fled that terrorist group’s barbaric attacks on civilians,” DeSantis continued. “This is a serious mistake by the Biden administration and will hurt Floridians. With this mind, my office will ascertain what policy measures our state can take to protect our residents from a resurgent FARC and other terrorist Marxist groups.”

“My administration stands squarely on the side of the millions of Floridians who want democracy, peace and freedom to endure in Colombia and against Joe Biden’s Castrochavista allies,” he added.

Lieutenant-Governor Jeanette Nuñez also criticized the move, saying, “There’s no such thing as a peace deal when you negotiate with terrorists. Removing the FARC from the U.S. list of foreign terrorist organizations not only undermines America’s interests and allies in the region but appeases despots like Maduro and Diaz-Canel.”
According to an exclusive
report from the Wall Street Journal, “The officials said the move could come no later than Nov. 30, coinciding with the five-year anniversary of the historic peace accord between then-President Juan Manuel Santos and rebels of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, or FARC. Negotiated with U.S. support, the agreement ended a 52-year-conflict and resulted in Mr. Santos winning the Nobel Peace Prize…”

“Colombian officials who spent four years negotiating with the FARC had been quietly pressing U.S. officials to drop the terrorist designation against the group,” the Wall Street Journal added. “By doing that, the U.S. recognizes the steps rebels took to transform their group into a political party, now called the Common People party, officials said.”

The news comes weeks after an Iranian-backed extremist group that Biden also removed from the U.S.’s list of Foreign Terrorist Organizations launched a missile attack on a mosque and a religions school that killed and injured 29 civilians.

The group, called Ansarallah, had been designated as a Foreign Terrorist Organization (FTO) by the Trump administration.

“If Ansarallah did not behave like a terrorist organization, we would not designate it as an FTO and SDGT,” Former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo explained a statement.

“It has led a brutal campaign that has killed many people, continues to destabilize the region, and denies Yemenis a peaceful solution to the conflict in their country. Rather than distance itself from the Iranian regime, it has embraced the world’s leading state-sponsor of terrorism even more. Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) has supplied Ansarallah with missiles, drones, and training, allowing the group to target airports and other critical infrastructure.”

Poll Shows Voters Doubt Biden’s ‘Health’ and ‘Mental Fitness’

Published

Joe Biden

A POLITICO/Morning Consult Poll shows Americans are increasingly concerned over the health and mental fitness of President Biden. Biden is the oldest man ever sworn into office. “Only 40 percent of voters surveyed agreed with the statement that Biden ‘is in good health,’ while 50 percent disagreed. That 10-percentage-point gap — outside the poll’s margin of error — represents a massive 29-point shift since October 2020, when Morning Consult last surveyed the question and found voters believed Biden was in good health by a 19-point margin.”

1,998 registered voters were polled November 13-15. The voters didn’t find Biden a clear communicator by 20 points, and didn’t find him energetic by 26 points. They did not find him a strong leader by 17 points.

“Asked whether Biden is mentally fit, voters are almost evenly split, with 46 percent saying he is and 48 percent disagreeing. But that negative 2-point margin stands in stark contrast to Biden’s numbers last October, when voters believed he was mentally fit by a 21-point margin” reports POLITICO.

“The poll questions are part of a long battery of attributes about which voters were asked to rate Biden — the same battery employed multiple times during Donald Trump’s presidency, and asked about both candidates last fall, prior to the 2020 presidential election.”

Biden turns 79 on Saturday and curiosity is sparking political circles as to whether or not he will run for reelection in three years. Additionally, “Democrats have grown increasingly concerned with the party’s gerontocracy. Biden says he will run again, but some longtime allies have raised doubts. Even “Saturday Night Live” recently ribbed Biden over whether he was “lucid.”

POLITICO writes:

The most intense scrutiny of Biden’s age and his verbal miscues had previously been limited to conservative news outlets and social media, said Celinda Lake, a Democratic pollster who has surveyed for Biden.

“They’re running a very aggressive campaign on this, and it’s bleeding over into the mainstream a little,” Lake said. “By and large, the people who believe this are Trump supporters anyway or they’ve been exposed to the right-wing disinformation machine.”

To Lake’s point, the Morning Consult poll generally shows that Trump voters and Republicans generally believe Biden is neither physically nor mentally fit, and Biden voters believe the opposite. However, independents — by a margin of 23 points — don’t agree that Biden is mentally fit now.

Before last year’s election, independents and voters overall believed Biden was more physically and mentally fit than Trump, whose mismanagement of the pandemic damaged his campaign as the Biden camp embraced social distancing and mostly eschewed large events.

But with Trump gone as a foil for now, Biden is more in the spotlight than ever, and his overall approval rating began collapsing with the bloody withdrawal from Afghanistan. The ravages of the coronavirus Delta variant, congressional squabbling and public perceptions about the economy also contributed to Biden’s troubles.

The new Morning Consult poll shows 44 percent give Biden a positive job approval rating and 53 percent disapprove. Biden’s approval rating is essentially unchanged over the past two weeks — it was 46 percent last week and 45 percent the week prior — since the passage of the infrastructure bill in Congress earlier this month.
